What are your career goals? Finance is a core MBA topic, so unless you want to drill down into something specialized or highly quantitative, you may just want to stick with a general MBA.

I would start with this list:
http://www.find-mba.com/specializations/12/finance

Unfortunately, your GMAT score is on the low side for a school that has a strong focus in finance. With your profile, this is going to be the single most important part of your application, if you want to increase your chances of landing a job after graduation. A school like Kent State is fine, but won't have the same level of career support for international students as a school like NYU Stern, Wharton, etc.

And then there's location. If you want to work in financial services, I'd suggest looking at schools closer to Wall Street (Stern, Columbia, even Fordham) - or if you are looking at specific corporate finance jobs, like energy industry finance for example, you'd want to look at places like Texas (Mays, McCombs, etc.) or a business school that's generally strong in finance (Rochester).

The short of it is, without boosting your GMAT score, your options will be extremely limited.

Thanks for your response.
However my work and social commitments are high and I am in no position to re take the GMAT.
I will have to go ahead with my current scores and play my cards based on my profile. I don't stand a chance in NYU,Columbia,Wharton or universities like that.
I will have to focus on unis that can consider me and I have a fair chance of admit. As you know my profile and my aspirations are to land up with a job on wall Street, I would request you to suggest me Universities based on that. Your kind response will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Your goal is not realistic. A Wall Street financial firm is not likely to hire you with a low GMAT and an MBA from a school which recruits weak candidates. To see schools with a finance specialisation in the New York area which might accept you, take a look at Shortcut to find the best US MBA www.find-mba.com/board/36065 - The list is basically one - Pace University - which is not very likely to be able to place you on Wall Street.

Average GMAT at Fordham is 620, I think this applicant would have to have something else unique about his profile to get in here.

And frankly, since finance requires substantial quant skills, I would think that a higher GMAT score (at least in the quantitative section) would go a long way to selling this applicant, considering his goals.

PS they are plural, not singular.
