I believe Stanford and Harvard both prefer younger candidates but I cannot speak for the rest. You may want to consider some EMBA programs. Additionally, I believe that many European schools prefer older candidates. Perhaps look into Oxford Said, Cambridge Judge, INSEAD and IMD. In addition, I have also seen some more experienced candidates admitted to Darden.
It is not only about whether they accept you, it is also about whether you will fit the class profile, whether your objectives are met in the school. Ponder over it.
For a 3-4 years guy, any school will be good but for a senior guy like you, only a very few schools are closely aligned to your objectives
Some schools will directly or indirectly discourage you and entice you to apply for their various flavours of part-time/executive programmes. You need to clearly think whether that is what you are looking at.
So my friend, don't look at the ranking first. First identify your objectives and then find out which school satisfy that.
Not all schools are for all.
