Hi Hiren06,

Thank you for your post. As you're likely aware, the pool of Indian male engineer applicants is extremely crowded and competitive. Before you do anything else, I encourage you to review the following two GMAT Club posts / analyses: MBA Admissions Chances for Indian Applicants (Top 50 Analysis) and The Indian Male MBA Application Guide. You'll see that applicants with a 720/730 GMAT have only a 5% acceptance rate to the top 20 programs in the U.S, which is extremely low. So you will really want to look primarily outside of the U.S. top 25.

Application execution is extremely important -- specific, compelling, and connected short- and long-term career goals; a coherent articulation of how who you are and what you've done to this point plus the MBA equals or leads to those goals; specific rationale for pursuing an MBA (why MBA); specific rationale for each program (you'll need a deep understanding of and sound articulation for each); a specific understanding of how you'll uniquely contribute to each program; a unique and authentic personal story; a discussion of the passion and purpose behind your goals; excellent essays, a great resume, superb recommendations, and so on so forth. You can read more about these topics here: ... on-process.

It's difficult to say how you'll fare with the above, so with a 720 GMAT, I would encourage you to cast a fairly wide net, probably from #20/25 to #45/50. The front end of that range will be reach/stretch programs for you. And gaining acceptance to any program anywhere in the rankings requires hard work and strong execution. If you still haven't taken the GMAT, then you're not going to have very much time to put forth several strong applications in Round 1. The application execution I described above is difficult work, takes time, requires a lot of story and career goal planning, multiple revisions of your resume and every essay for every school, meetings with and oversight of your recommenders, and high levels of research into every school to which you apply, including event attendance (in-person or online) and conversations with current students or alumni. Please keep that in mind.

If you're interested in operations, then you might read further about the MBA programs at Purdue (Krannert), Georgia Tech (Scheller), Michigan State (Broad), Ohio State (Fisher), and Penn State (Smeal). I do work with clients on ad hoc School Selection and Strategy, so if you'd be interested in that, I would be happy to partner with you for a couple hours (via Hourly Services).
