Best US MBA Programs for IT professional from India

Hello,

Can anybody advise me about some good choices for an IT professional from India. I am looking for a US program that is not too hard to get into. I have not taken the GMAT yet but I expect to get at least 650. Thank you for any comments.

Typically, since you're in such a competitive applicant group - and many of the others in this group will have high GMAT scores - you may have to get a higher GMAT score than you would if you were from a less competitive group.

However, it also depends on a lot of other factors, not just your GMAT score. How much work experience do you have? How was your undergraduate performance?

You are looking for a US program because US MBA programs are looked highly upon in India?

I am sorry to be rude, but that's far from reality. Many Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai students from 2015 and 2016 batch at The College of William and Mary went back to their respective countries.
The two students in Thailand got into EY and KPMG. One in Uganda got into IBM Blue program from US. One in Japan got into Amazon. In China got into Big4 + Amazon + Pfizer.

Students who returned to India? waited 6-8 months to get a Rs. 10 lac package at IT and/or eCommerce companies. Big4 won't even interview them.

Indian market doesn't gives a rat's ass about any mid tier US MBA. Many in my circle had 740 GMAT got into penn state / Rochester / SMU with nearly 100% tuition scholarship - even they had to network like ass to get even an interview call.
What worked in most of their favor in Delhi/Mumbai/Bangalore was that their hiring manager was either a white person in MNC who knew those schools or someone who was an MBA aspirant himself/herself at one point.
I was admitted into SPJIMR PGPM back in 2011. Students who joined then have better career outcome and far better financial situation than students who had to spend in $$$$$ and get 0 as their ROI due to companies avoiding them in US like the plague and/or them not getting selecting in H1B.

US micky mouse MBA degrees are appreciated in a country/region that doesn't have a competitive globally immersed MBA market such as Middle east, Thailand, China etc.

India's domestic MBA program are not only highly competitive but also immersed globally. That's why several B schools from Canada, US and Italy operate an India campus/program.

Make sure you understand fully what you are getting into.
