Where to do you want to work? Which industry and what countries can you work in? Other things being equal, the MIT Scale degrees in Boston, Luxembourg, Malaysia, and Spain are excellent.

Hi Duncan,

Thanks for your reply. Regarding your queries, please find below my reply:-

1. 

Where to do you want to work: I haven't decided it yet. but I am thinking about UK, Germany, Netherlands, US and Canada only.
2. 
Which industry and what countries can you work in?  - I have been working in Power Industry. I also worked in Oil & gas sector but now, I want to switch to e-commerce or FMCG industry. I am authorized to work in India only.
3. I have already checked MIT Scale degrees. i am also looking for other options. Plus, I am not able to decide between MS and MBA as I am not sure whether MS degree will be able to help in better career progression or an MBA is must must requirement in order to grow higher in an organisation.

Those MIT-affiliated degrees get better career outcomes, including higher salaries, than most top 100 MBAs. In Canada, the Concordia, HEC, Laval, UBC, and York universities' business schools have great MSC degrees in SCM or logistics.

If you are interested in working abroad after the degree, I'd say you should go for the best school you can get into, taking post-study visa restrictions and language into account. For instance, unless you speak Dutch I wouldn't consider the Netherlands, as you'd probably need to speak the language to land an MBA-level job in the country.

The US can be tricky given the H1B situation, but if you look into STEM-designated programs there is some potential there. Just know that the longer you'd want to stay in the country the more difficult it becomes since the H1Bs are awarded by lottery, and there are not enough visas to go around.

If you target top MBA programs you don't necessarily need to specialize in supply chain, given that you have a solid background in the field.

Is MIT affiliated degress from Luxembourg, Malaysia, and Spain are comparable to degree from MIT Boston? Is there any language issue at these centers especially European centers?

Could u suggest some top MBA school which can match above requirements (language and VISA requirements) as well my background (11 years of experience and 650 GMAT score)?

Here is a list of top SCM MBAs: https://find-mba.com/lists/top-business-school-by-speciality/top-business-schools-for-supply-chain-management and some other suggestions are at https://find-mba.com/search/result?specs=39&program=14&accredition=true&rank=true&averageGmat=600;650 

Now we have a 36-month visa for US programs with a STEM designation, I think the US is more open. 

The MIT-affiliated degrees have broadly the same standing in their own countries that MIT does in the US, and they have the same curriculum. On the world market, of course, these are regional leaders not well know on other sides of the planet. Outcomes are excellent and in almost all cases better than MBAs with comparable students. So, no, it's not MIT but (almost certainly) you can't get into MIT's residential degrees (on the Boston campus). 

PS A top MBA, with NYU, would have better outcomes but it would be harder to get that first job. But then the investment needed for an top-tier MBA is also higher.

If you can get the verbal portion of your GMAT closer to your quant, you'll be able to apply to much better schools.

The odds are stacked against you, given the number of applicants each year who have similar backgrounds to yours. Your work experience will help to some degree but having a more balanced GMAT score will go a long way.
