Your GMAT score is in the range that will give you a full look at your overall application-- so don't neglect the importance of doing school specific research-- WHY do want to attend each program, WHAT are the resources that will help you best reach your career goals and ARE your career goals something this school can help you obtain. Keep these things in mind as you approach your applications. Here are some tips in general for how to think about what ADCOM really wants to know-- whether it is in the interview or from the essays-- think like adcom as you write your essays-- make sure you are covering all the bases.

I'm not an expert on the IIM options-- but use the thought process I described above-- think about what you really want from your degree-- and then look at each program to see how well they deliver what is most important to you.
How relevant is my profile for my target schools or any other schools you suggest.
Your work experience is solid-- the key thing you have to add is what do you want to do post grad-- and how can you 1) leverage what you have done along with 2)what you learn from graduate degree that will help you be successful in X job after you graduate.
What additional certifications can I get to add value to my profile. I would not worry about extra certifications-
just submit a strong application


Thanks in advance for your time
