fish out of water?

Hi, I've got a GMAT score of 680 (I will soon take it again with a reasonable expectation to score over 700). My undergraduate performance was undistinguished. I have 8 years of work experience that is a mixture of legal, benefits administration, and new technology implementation. I have consistently added responsibilities and skills with an excellent job performance. I am an English-only speaker but I am willing and able to delay matriculation for a year while I take intensive language courses.

My intention is to work and live in the EU after graduation. Right now my interest is with France or the Netherlands but I'm not excluding possibilities at this early date. The cost and quality of the school I would attend are important to the extent they allow me to realize my goal of continuing my professional life in Europe after graduation.

Are my goals realistic? What schools would I be best served in seeking out?

Ireland seems much more realistic than a country where you don't speak the language. If you come to, for example, a Dutch or French state university for an academic year and learn the academic language, then take a master's in the local language, you will surely have a better outcome.

Target the best schools you can realistically get into, and yes, focus on English-speaking countries. If you can break 700 maybe LBS could be an option. Also, other potential options on the mainland include HEC Paris (and other good programs with a high international mobility score, use the FT ranking to find this).
