Suggestion & Feedback


I have just turned 36 and have in total of 13 years of experience in Electrical Industry undertaking various roles in technical ,Training ,Marketing ,Key Account Management & Business Development, . I couldn't take up MBA because of family obligations.

I am an Indian presently in working in UAE. Apart from work i have been actively involved with NGO's for underprivileged girl child education, Blood donation camps, Ride to educate about Toilets in rural areas. I am a junior state level boxer and was involved in NCC(National Cadet Corps) for 7 years.

I want to pursue a 1 year full time MBA. Would need your suggestions :

1. Am i over qualified for 1 year full time MBA?
2. Whats your recommendation or suggestion?
3. Which are the good International Schools for 1 year fulltime MBA?
4. Can you also suggest if my profile suits for Indian Schools like ISB,IIMA,IIMB & IIMC for 1 year fulltime MBA?
4. What is a good GMAT score for me?

Really appreciate your time and comments.

I wouldn't say that you're overqualified, especially if you're looking at, say, the PGPX program at IIMA (where the average work experience is 9+ years).

However, your choice will really depend on your goals. All of those Indian schools are great if you wanted to work, well, in India. If you had any intention of either staying in the UAE or going to another country, you should probably look at schools elsewhere.

In terms of GMAT scores, the schools you are looking at tend to be fairly competitive in this regard. The IIMA PGPX program's average GMAT is over 700. Same at ISB.
