Hey there, I am an Indian Male with an IT cum technology consulting background. Total WE 48 months.

Currently working with a Big 4 as a SAP consultant and a team lead. Got promoted twice in 3 yrs
Have worked for and implemented SAP suite for automobile manufacturing, Banking and service based clients from Europe and the US.
Travelled to the US twice for client go-lives. Been interacting with international clients for more than 3 yrs.

Planning to attend the class of 2021 (starting next yr 2019). Taking up GMAT arnd July this year, hoping for 710-720. Undergrad gpa arnd 3.2, non IIT

My post MBA goals include :

1. Strategy consulting at Deloitte, PwC Strategy &, AT Kearney etc. (MBB is distant)

2. Product strategy and mgmt at tech companies like SAP, Oracle, Workday, FAANG etc.

I know both these goals maybe look quite different but, I have gone thru them for a year now and thts what appeals to me. I wanna do one of them, in tht order.

Does tht look feasible as an international student in Trump's US, given the struggles

Am looking at following univs:

McCombs ----> Grp 1 (Dream)
Emory

Vanderbilt Owen
Fosters --------> Grp 2 (Stretch)
USC Marshall

Georgia Tech Scheller
Indiana Kelley
Mays
Mendoza --------> Grp 3(Reach Stretch)

UC Irvine Merage
Simon ------> Grp 4 (Reach Safe)

Any changes or addition to the targets as per my goals? (I'll have to select 7-8 of these)

Shoot even a bit higher on GMAT if possible-- 730+-- but if you can hit 710-720 you may be ok at some of your choices

When you list your Why MBA/Why Now pitch-- be mindful of going with one over another-- does not matter which-- or at least think about what these have in common and what is the central thread.

McCombs

Emory
Fosters
USC Marshall

Georgia Tech Scheller
Mays
Mendoza
UC Irvine Merage
McCombs, Foster and possibly Emory could be tough with the 710 GMAT. The others look reasonable. I think there is great hiring for Indian MBAs in tech product marketing so that is a great goal. Think about some of the European schools also--
LBS, INSEAD, HEC Paris, IESE, IE and also consider Tepper, Michigan State, and Kelley as you look for the best options with tech marketing in the MBA pipeline.

Any changes or addition to the targets as per my goals??????
