Hello everyone!

Can you please help me in identifying the schools that I should target based on my profile and career goals? I plan to start my MBA in Fall 2015.

Brazilian, male, 30 years, gmat 680 (I may retake the test to improve it), business administration and accounting degree (volunteer work during the graduation), around 7 years of working experience in big four companies in audit (Multinational were my main clients), and now I’m international auditor in an Swedish multinational company, in the Brazilian plant. I would love to make a small move in my career for consultancy or to work with strategy field after the MBA, and also I want to work abroad after the mba. I was considering the following schools and I would love your opinions about the best options to my profile.

LBS (I believe is out of my range)
Imperial College London

I'm prefer study in UK however I'm totally open for other programs and countries, as McGill (Canada) RSM (Netherlands) IE (Spain).

I would love to stay abroad a few years after the graduation to have this international exposure, and after that come back to Brazil.

What do you guys suggest?

Thank you all for the attention.

Best regards,

Hello Ricardo,

Overall, your chosen schools look on target – good list! I agree that LBS is quite a reach. But I think it would still make sense to apply – your GMAT is low for them but not terribly low – certainly not low enough to raise questions about your abilities. And given your nationality and geography, you’d represent a desirable element of diversity at LBS, something they really value. So while it’s a reach, I think that with a great application, you’d have a “reasonable” shot – not 50% but not 5% either… And the other schools are all excellent options, as long as they meet your recruiting/career needs.

Oxford’s Said has good consulting recruiting; it would be on-par or a slight reach – perhaps consider this school as well.
