Profile Evaluation please, may be somehow non-typical and interesting.

* Male, 33 years old, China PR.
* Top30 university in China (Top2 school in my major)
* Ph. D. degree in Communication Engineering, Bachelor in Computer Science
* GPA: 3.1 or so,
* GMAT: 740 (Q50, V40, IR8)
* TOEFL: not taken yet, estimated around 110.
* 7 years in the headquarter of a dominating state-owned corporation in China, the biggest telecom operator in the world with 80 billions USDs annual income. (but maybe not well-known out of China), including:
* 4 years in technology research institute, work on technical strategies, road-maps and specifications. Promoted as team manager with 8-10 members. Some international experiences in 4 years regular global industry standardization works as main delegate and in a regular corporate project with the biggest wireless operator in Europe as the project manager.
* 3 years in planning department, work on company network developing plan&strategy and annual investment planning, about 30 billions USDs per year.
Career Goal
* General Management or planning and strategy in Hi-tech Corp., .
* Consulting or PE/VC in high-tech areas in China
Target School
* Tier1: Wharton, INSEAD, IMD, Chicago, Kellogg,
* Tier2: Haas, Ross, Duke
* Tier3: Anderson, Cornell, Tepper

1. How are my chances for above schools? Especially Tier1 and Tier2 schools.
2. I guess 2 points in my profile may be flaws: Age (too old a little) and Employer (outstanding but not recognized to people in US and Europe). How much do you experts feel will them affect my admission? How should I make them up?
3. About my doctoral degree, will that be an advantage or a disadvantage (may be strange for B-schools?)
4. Any other schools you can recommend according to my profile?

Many thanks for your help!

Your profile will definitely be impressive, and while your selected target schools do not generally have an age bias, I wonder if you haven't considered EMBA? Your profile is good enough for the FT programs too, don't get me wrong. You have bonafide leadership experience and China is actually under-represented in many b-school programs. The PhD can help distinguish you too--definitely sets you apart. Let us know if we can help you craft a winning package. I have particular strengths in helping Asian applicants draw out a story that is compelling to the adcoms.
