Currently I am in +2 doing Commerce with Maths in India. After +2, I would like to study in the USA. What SAT score do I need for a top business school in USA? What are the best schools and the admissions process? What type of financial aid is available? Will I get a job in USA after an MBA?

Tom adds important information about undergrad (bachelor degree programs) and the MBA (a graduate, master's level program). Since you're in +2 now, you're finishing high school and you can apply to bachelor degree programs in business, but you can also do an MBA later regardless of what you did for your bachelor's degree program. In the US, the education system is quite flexible, which is the beauty of the American education system. Regarding your question specific to the SAT, please know that your academic record is the most important piece of your application. Your SAT score will likely verify your academic record, meaning if you're a strong student in school, you should have strong test scores and vice versa. Do the best you can on your SAT and you'll get the score you earn. The SAT is simply one piece of many in your application and adds context. Applications in the US require many pieces and they are all considered in the decision-making process. No one has ever been admitted simply based on a test score as all parts play an important role together. Some students get admitted based on their scores and marks, while others may have a personal story that is so compelling that the university wants that student's perspectives and mind at their school.  Just do your best and apply to a range of schools. There are many great programs that may not be in the top spots you're looking at so I recommend you broaden your search as well and look beyond the "top" schools.

I may let others speak to some of the particulars here, but wanted to clarify a few key points: In the US, there is a marked distinction between undergraduate business programs and MBA programs. While SAT (or ACT) scores will likely be necessary in applying for an undergraduate business program, you would likely need to take either the GRE, or perhaps better, the GMAT, and have completed a four-year undergraduate degree before applying for an MBA program. Although the norms are somewhat fluid, it remains quite standard that applicants for MBA programs at top North American universities would have a number of years (say two to six, on average?) of relevant work experience. While both undergraduate business programs and MBA programs – depending on their reputations, a student's performance, etc. – might open the door to good work opportunities, it is important to differentiate between the two, as they are quite distinct.
