I am posting this to find out what are the prospects for someone who is looking to do a full-time MBA after 10 years of work experience. Note that I am only looking for programs like the PGP-X offered by IIMs, GMP by XLRI and the ISB MBA.

    Hi Raj! Have you started your MBA programme? Which institute? What prospects you find now. I have around 17 years of experience and working at a senior level and considering pursuing Executive MBA from INSEAD/NUS/ISB for career progression. Your advice will be valuable.
    Hey, have you considered the Sloan Master's offered by London Business School? It is a 1 year general management programme for Senior Management professionals.
    Though it is not an "MBA", I believe it would be a good fit for somebody with your level of experience.

    In the US at least, many of the regular 2 year MBA program target people with 2-7 years experience (on average).
    However, for some one like you who has 16 yrs experience, the most popular option in the US is the Excutive MBA program. This will ensure you that your peers will also have 10+ year...

    I understand you concerns. And the 'pragmatic middle-class approach' you talk about can actually be a virtue rather than a vice, for someone taking a risk of leaving a well paying career and seeking out better opportinities.
    The fact that you've decided to do so after so many years of experien...

    Thanks for your comments. I was hoping for more thoughts/comments from the junta in these forums.
    Main reason for not applying to non-Indian programs is that very few of them are really recognised in India (or so I have been told except perhaps programs like those of HBS/W...
    For your profile (age, experience etc), the schools that you have targetted do appear to be good choices within India. However, here the concept of experienced hires is still new and most of the MBA recruitment is geared towards the regular 2-year programs targetting a younger age group of candid...
