Hi everyone,
This is my first ever post in GMAT club. I am an mechanical engineering student with 5 years of experience in an OEM-Two wheeler manufacturing company based in India, and currently I am pursuing Bachelors in Engineering as a full time student (Mechanical). I will have to work for three more years in the same company after graduation. So in total I will have 8 years of experience before applying to Business schools.

The diploma degree is from an Polytechnic college affiliated to AICTE,India and Bachelors is with an major university in Tamilnadu, India. I have 86% percentage in Diploma and in BE 8.96/10CGPA as aggregate. As I am willing to do MBA after three years of working, in countries preferably like US, UK, Singapore, & also considering European countries as various options. I am yet to start GMAT preparations and I will likely to take it up after an year from now(Had an mock test and scored 650. I am the first person to have an engineering degree and also first in attending an university from my family side. My age now is 27 and I will be able to apply for MBA only when I am 30 due to some unavoidable circumstances.

I have various volunteering experiences in community causes as well as helping in crisis to various people. I also worked as an SME in training the trainees in my organisation, part of the team which planted close to 400+ trees, have leadership and volunteering experience in academic levels in various fronts, have been promoted three times in 5 years in my first job.

So my query is, will I be able to enter into business schools with this background at the age of 30 years ? Is it really possible to get an admission at that age with my mixed experience in some good universities say INSEAD, Booth, IE, HBS, Wharton ?

I am looking forward for suggestions, that is it okay to go forward in the direction of Preparing myself for the MBA degree ? I know that the decision is mine, but still I wanted to gather some information before plunging deep. Thank you all in advance for your ideas and information.

Hi
Considering your work experience of 8 years, it is apt for applying for an MBA in the mentioned colleges.
I would suggest to start preparation for Gmat even though you will apply after 3 years. The Gmat score is valid for 5 years and you will have sufficient time. Also as you have scored a 650 on the mock test, you are at a very good level. I assume the mock test was the Gmatprep test.
So, you can easily score a 700+ with some preparation.
All the best for your prep.
