I'm 35 year old female with a total work experience of 13 years.
I completed my Masters in Microbiology from Bangalore University in 2006. After completing my Masters, I worked at a variety of different positions from working as a drug safety associate for IQIVA to my most recent position as a Global Learning Design Manager for Novartis, a global healthcare company. Over the past few years I transitioned from functional side to Learning & Development.

I plan to pursue my full time MBA from either Europe or Canada from the fall of 2019. I'm yest to write my GMAT but wanted to know if this mid-career break is advisable or not? Also, my age is one of my major concern because I'm at the higher side of the spectrum. Please suggest.

People choose to do MBA at various stages of life, and find suitable schools as per their requirements. As long as you are inspired to grow, and learn new things in life, please go ahead. I definitely think that your work experience is on the higher side. However, the academic world is getting more and more creative, and these schools are coming out with a variety of programs every year.

As long as you stay committed to taking GMAT, and the future you are keen on post MBA, someone in this world will pick you.

Fall of 2019 will be tough if you have not taken GMAT yet. Most of the second rounds are in January, and that means, you should start working on the applications tomorrow morning. As you do not have a GMAT Score yet, I think you should be targeting Fall 2019, and Jan 2020( Richard Ivey for example has an MBA starting in January) and their first deadline will be around March( Check exact dates).

Hope this helps.
