And many more initiatives and innovations on my name in my company....

I am facing lot of problems with my PGDM Part Time due to urgent obligations for my organization. Since I have to attend classes 4 days a week, and due to heavy workload at office, In my 2nd year of MBA, I am unable to manage things due to time conflicts. So I am left with only 3 options, either I leave my job, my part time MBA or both.

It would be great if you could help me in this as I have finally decided to go for a regular International MBA. But I have few concerns like:

1) My Part time MBA-- will it affect my future admission prospects when the international colleges get to know about it?
2) I have a genuine reason to take this decision-- is it enough for justification or should I plan something else?
3) Is my profile competitive enough? Please suggest few colleges
4) Any other suggestions to improve my profile?

Please help me.......

I don't think your chances of admission at international MBA programs will be harmed by the fact that you can't complete your part-time degree. You will just need to explain the circumstances: what the pressures are, how your work obligations changed from the time you started the degree to the time you left. They will understand to some extent. Your story may actually strengthen your argument that you need a full-time MBA because you could say that you have discovered that the part-time MBA approach just doesn't work for you: you need / want to commit yourself to business school full-time.

If you complete the part-time MBA but have poor grades then you have bigger problems: convincing why you need a second MBA and explaining why they should disregard your poor grades in MBA-related courses.

If you feel you need an international full-time MBA rather than a part-time, India-based MBA then make sure you explain the differences in focus, emphasis or quality to the international business schools, so they'll understand your decision.

Your profile seems strong enough academically and professionally, but understand that you will face extreme competition even at non-elite schools because (a) all B-schools are experiencing increased applications, and (b) B-schools want diverse classes so many qualified Male Indian Technology applicants get rejected.

You didn't mention post-MBA goals so I can't suggest specific schools.
