Choose your future first, then your school.

Why a new domain? What are your goals? Maybe try something like http://www.careerleader.com/individuals.html

Hi Duncan

I have been involved in Project Managemnt for last few years, so, I am looking for General Management (incl. startegic Management course) as part of my MBA. Since, most of my experience has been in IT, Retail and Digital marketing area, I would prefer working in these areas post MBA, but I am also open to learning and exploring new ones. (Considering my background, I would avoid Finance and Marketing).

I hope it provides answer to the question.
I would appreciate your thoughts and further recommendations.

Well, most schools are good at general management. Try the Tier 3 schools at http://www.find-mba.com/board/27082

Well, with the exception of the Indian schools, I think the tier 1 and tier 2 schools will think that - on the basis of what you have written here - that your work experience is functional rather than managerial. Admittedly, the managerial experience in the group of MBA candidates is uneven and uneven in many countries, and India is one of those. If the ISB will offer you a place again, which cannot be assured, then please do take it.

I go to Emporia State University and I believe it is a great school based on the experience I've had here. I received my undergraduate degree in May of this year from ESU and decided to continue my education by enrolling in the MBA program. ESU offers concentrations in IS, Accounting, and ERP. It also offers the flexibility of a full campus or online program (beginning next semester).

You can't be seriously recommending a little-known regional school to an internationally-oriented candidate with 10 years of work experience and a 700 GMAT score?!
