Different case - advice appreciated

<p>Hi everyone,</p>

<p>I used to use College Confidential earlier, around 2003/04, when I was looking for colleges, and had found it quite useful. So I'm back here again, and its almost 2012!</p>

<p>I was looking to get some sort of advice on my current profile, if an MBA is right for me, and if so, which schools should I realistically be looking at?</p>

<p>I'm originally from India (an am a citizen), and did rather well in my national school examinations. I've done my undergrad in Economics and Finance, from perhaps Southeast Asia's best business school. I, however, only got a GPA of 3/4, due to some not so grades in Econ courses. During this time, I also interned with a major international bank, first in Marketing and then in Finance.</p>

<p>I was hired out of school by the same bank, in their Credit Risk Management division, where I had the chance to work with some specialist portfolios like Commodities, Diamonds, Leveraged, Structured and Trade Finance. I worked here for 2 years before joining my current firm - one of the worlds largest Commodity Traders. I'm a Risk Manager for them, and even at a young age, I'm a decision maker where I get to approve trading strategies and funding plans by myself. The job has me shuttling betweeb 20 commodity types, and I'm slowly building up knowledge in this less publicized sphere.</p>

<p>On the side, I also completed the FRM (Financial Risk Manager) by GARP, and have just registered for the CAIA - Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst.</p>

<p>I'm looking to give the GMAT next year, and should be in contention for entering business / grad school for the Fall 2013 session.</p>

<p>My question is - whats a good fit for someone with my background? By Fall 2013, I would have 4 years of work experience, 2 in the specialist finance risk management of a major bank, and 2 in the overall risk management at a burgeoning commodities giant. </p>

<p>Does an MBA make sense for me?</p>

<p>Lots of MBA programs would like to have a person with your background and forecast experience. What do you want to do with your career? That question determines if it makes sense for you.</p>
