I am from India, a 31 years old Engineering Grad with 6.5 GPA (v.low) and 7 years of experiences in Manufacturing and Sales in a few countries in South East Asia. I am looking for a career in Private Equity research post my MBA. For which I have taken some certification courses in CFI Institute. Before the admissions next year I plan to give my hand in CFA 1 if things go well.
Since my fav location to work post MBA would be Europe/UK. I am looking for an MBA that would supplement my Finance course and open doors for me in PE firms in UK/Europe. I am considering schools that gives waiver for GMAT as I will be focussing more on my Finance related prep certs before I join my MBA. I have found Trinity Business School and Vlerick Business School as there is either an alternative or waiver for standardised tests. I am also open to alternative suggestions.
Kindly throw in your valued opinions. Thank you for your help and suggestions.
PS: I am not considering MS or MIF options given my age and professional cum educational background, which could be wrong but that's what my research yielded me. Again, suggestions are welcome here too.
