Surprisingly a majority of applicants at the institutes you are targetting apply with similar background as you have.

A good GMAT score is the first step towards getting into the colleges of your choice. In my opinion, you might get an interview call from ISB at minimum score of 680 but a better GMAT score might get you some advantage. IIMs usually give call at score above 700. So targeting any score above 700 would be the ideal target.

GMAT would be a better choice for you if you can afford it financially as CAT might not get you the kind of change you are looking for in your work profile.

so, All the best!!!

Since you already have 6 years of experience, you could target the IIMs and the ISB through GMAT. Having an MBA should not be a deterrent unless you can provide convincing answers for doing an MBA again. Goal seeking and introspection is a personal endeavour and must be dealt with thoroughly whether or not you do an MBA. Acads wise your profile looks decent. You need to have well defined career goals to justify the reason for a second MBA. A GMAT score of 720 and above would be desirable to get you into the top institutes.

For top B Schools, you should target 720 and above. You should be able to display your proficiency at work and otherwise. Your work experience is on the lower side, hence your essays would need to portray your capabilities of a leader who is as matured and as convincing as an applicant with 4-6 years of experience.

@sanjh13 If you are targetting the top schools, try getting a 710+ in GMAT. As far as your professional experience is concerned, your focus should be on taking some initiatives at work so that you can display leadership potential and add some accomplishments to your kitty. Also, shortlist the schools and start talking to alums to be able to write some very specific points in your essays.

Hi @Priyavani ! None in the top 40 in US seem possible, but you do have a chance in some of the top schools such as IE Spain, HKUST and Manchester (UK) if your profile is presented in a manner interesting enough to the schools.

All the Best!

@Anubha181190
My career goal is to work as a Finance Manager in a reputed firm. I have a keen interest in all finance related matters. I like the concept of how money pulls in more money. I have basic knowledge of how investments should be made so as to maximize the profits & also I have made investments Gold-ETF stocks in the past & made some profits. I live in a flat with 3 other roommates & have taken all the financial responsibilities of our flat. I manage the expenses in a way so that they can be minimized & keep track of the regular monthly expenses which helps me to predict the next month's expenses beforehand. I actually manage the all finances in my flat.
