Hello abhigitam

The information you have given covers the Quantitative part of your profile. That seems a good fit for Kelley.
However, the Qualitative part needs to be explored- which is post-MBA goals (to find the right fit of schools and give a deeper feedback of your profile), Achievements at work (more than years or industry, schools are interested in your story).
A combination of both will be useful in shortlisting the right schools for you.
Let me know if you wish to discuss this further.

Hello vsharma763

Post-MBA Goals- Join consulting/Analytics firms such as Fractal, ZS, Microsoft, IBM in managerial positions. B Schools having Analytics as a major would be beneficial.
How about B schools - Marshall(USC), CMU, NUS(Singapore) and ISB(India). Does my profile fits for those schools?

Although at a first glance these schools look reachable, as I said you have mentioned more about your years/industy/role and not so much about your career progress/achievements. That will play a major factor.
Also, you are already in a related field. Why can't you progress to a managerial cadre without an MBA. What is the need. Be prepared to answer this with compelling reasons.
