Im 36. Should i consider taking GMAT for a Good B School in US. I currently am working as an Manager at Deloitte in a consulting role in Australia. Would my age be a restriction getting into a good B School (top 10%). And can I expect it to add value in my career?

Look for executive courses.
I personally dont feel any age is less to pursue your dreams.
But if you are looking from an ROI perspective, definitely its little challenging.

Hi Artderue,

The process of applying to (and ultimately attending) Business School will require a big investment of time, money and energy on your part, so you really should make sure that earning an MBA is something that you really want to do - and that the Programs that you apply to match your career goals/needs. There are a variety of factors that go into selecting the Schools that you'll apply to, so here are some things to consider:

1) Is there a particular company that you want to work for or industry that you want to work in? Certain degrees are more appropriate than others if you have a specific career goal.
2) What do you want your MBA to do for you?
3) Do you want to go to School full-time or part-time?
4) Are you willing to relocate? Are you comfortable with working through a program that is primarily online?
5) Are you going to be applying for scholarships?
Etc.

It's okay if you don't have answers to any of these questions just yet, but you really should try to define all of the important variables in terms of your goals, so that you can determine if this whole process is something that you're interested in - and so that you can tailor your entire approach to getting into the best School that matches what you're looking for.

Since you're ultimately asking Admissions questions, you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. Those Experts should be able to answer your Admissions questions and help define the specific areas of your profile that could use some improvement.

There's a Forum full of those Experts here:
