GMAT 660 Q47 V35This will matter less for exec MBA. I think this is best for exec MBA- FT MBA programs will be hard with this score.

With 10 yrs of experience- schools will expect significant progression.

Without knowing a bit more about WHY you seek the MBA and your post MBA goal, and it is hard to speak to specific schools- but these schools all look like possibilities. I would look also at Kellogg if you are looking at Chicago. You might also look at the online MBA at Kenan-Flagler. I suggest you think about what you hope to gain- and also think about where you want to build your professional network- do you see Chicago as place where you want to build your network? New York? I think that is important to consider with Exec MBA. Is there a certain sector where you want to gain more expertise- then consider going to a location where you can network there because it is a strength. Lots of good healthcare connections for Wharton (Philadelphia) or Chicago (Kellogg or Booth). Having easy access to an airport may be very important if you are travelling regularly for classes- every 3 weeks- so all these things matter when selecting schools- but I do see Exec MBA as a great option for your background. Best wishes as you navigate that.
Thanks in advance.

It was my mistake, I am interested in Full time MBA (1yr). Please suggest some good universities or FT MBA programs so that I can apply.

Thanks.

So if you are looking at the 1 YR MBA program, I would say that looking in Europe or Asia might make more sense as there are more 1 YR programs there- and for US 1YR programs your 10+ yrs of work experience puts you beyond the main range of applicants- and while more work experience is a good thing... there becomes a point where that diminishes somewhat and I'd say you face that hurdle a bit. Here is a link to some of the best 1 YR international MBA programs and perhaps start here to see where you compare to the applicant pool and also with your career interests to narrow down the list: https://www.forbes.com/pictures/mlh45el ... b42e9c5780
Schools like INSEAD, IMD, Cambridge, SPA Bocconi and others mentioned in the article are worth researching! Best wishes to you-
but also do consider possible exec options- as you will find many peers going this route.
