Hey dude,
Great to hear from you!


So I would say that the first thing to do before we even get into a profile evaluation is for you to start thinking DIFFERENT. Right now, you presented a profile, in which 70% of the information (all the certifications, etc.) is very very tech oriented, and hence, not at all helpful for an MBA.
It's great that you have that stuff, but it just won't help you get in,

More importantly, is shows that you are not yet THINKING like an MBAer, i.e. about LEADERSHIP.

So, my first suggestion is that you rethink of your profile in terms fo two things:
1. Leadership
2. Business

All the TECH stuff you have done, just leave out of your profile.

Now as far as schools goes - Where are you looking? i.e. what countries? why?
And what are your goals?

If you can get back to us on all this, we can help you out better,
Best,
JF
