Hi Duncan, Thanks for replying!!!
I am looking at a full-time MBA from a good Asian College. Yes as far as I have seen most of them have an average GMAT score of 650-700. But I would really appreciate any suggestions whether being an IT professional from India might create any issues with this score for these good Asian colleges and any colleges you feel I can target where I have a strong chance.
Also if possible could you please let me know about the perception of SMU, as I have heard a lot of promising stuff about it, but I cannot find it on any rankings.

I guess you've read this: GMAT Tiers - strong schools for your GMAT www.find-mba.com/board/27082

Obviously you are in a high-supply group so you need to apply early, look to differentiate yourself, have a clear career goals and do all the things that are recommended in the MBA admissions guides.

SMU is a good school . It's very strong for finance (http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/singapore-management-university-lee-kong-chian) but like all young or small schools it can struggle simply because of a low number of survey respondants.

Thanks for your insights duncan.....But I am just wandering if Singapore is the right place to do MBA from as from what I have looked up, it looks international students are finding it hard finding jobs there owing to stricter regulations put in place by the government. Could you please shed some light on this observation and whether you agree with the same??

@deep619... I am an Indian from IT industry...with 7+ years of work exp. I have same GMAT score. I got admission offers from Schulich (Canada), Nyenrode (Full Scholarship), ISB, IIM Bangalore and others. So I would suggest not to worry about your GMAT Score.
Why not apply to ISB, IIM B and C and SP Jain. They are are good as NUS, NTU (Except SP Jain) I can assure you that.

Eligibility is meeting minimum admission criteria. In that sense you are eligible to apply into the schools you mentioned.

Its a good approach to shortlist school based on the country you want to work. if you want to work in India ISB, SP Jain, IIM would make more sense over NTU, NUS, SMU. Select these if you want to work in Singapore.

Make sure you identify and understand various factors in play related to the location of your target country (and by default your target school). Linguistically Hong Kong is dominated by Chinese. So If you want to study in Hong Kong, it will be a good idea to be able to converse in Chinese.

About your comment on international students finding it hard. International students find it hard everywhere. They have the Linguistic and legal challenges to overcome. Add another element of risk if you are a career switcher. Think from a companies point of view. Why should they get into legalities and spend money to hire you over an equally qualified local candidate? You must some skill set that they are not able to find in the local pool of applicants.

Hope it helps,
