- BS/MS from top engineering programs
- age 41yr, US based indian, hitech/semiconductor, R&D individual contributor (tech lead)
- expired gmat 760 (10 yrs ago), GRE 168q, 164v, 5.0
- 9 yrs ago applied to W for full-time 2 yr MBA (denied after interview)
at my age, i assume the flagship 2yr mba option at best schools wouldn't happen.

what options do i have for b-schools? is lateral transition to MBB possible? how different would it be from traditional full time program for opportunities?

FT will be extremely tough and it doesn’t make much sense as well at this stage of your career. Executive MBA could be an option, but there it’s not easy to change industry.

People do get into top consulting firms laterally, but that varies from office to office. McKinsey, for example, has recently hired more than 100 industry experts in India. That’s not usual. You’ll have to network with people in your geography to know how things stand there.
