AA mba recruitment [#permalink] New post 21 Dec 2004, 09:39
I know a lot of international students post here, but I was wondering about african american mba students. I have an undergraduate degree in busniess and have been working since my degree in the non-profit industry. I want to make a switch to consulting since I feel the skills i have developled are transferable. I will spend three months preparing for the exam. I live in the Chicago metro area and would like to stay either in Chicago or Indiana for my MBA.

My goal score is 700. I am open to a part time, executive mba program.

Unless your GPA is really low, as an African American with good work experience and a 700 GMAT, you have lots of opportunties in the Chicago area both for part-time and EMBA programs. Kellogg and Chicago both have excellent part-time programs and EMBA programs. You need to see how much access EMBA or part-time students have to the career services resources at both schools. But consulting firms do recruit at both institutions.

If you don't quite earn the GMAT of your dreams, you may also want to consider Indiana University's Kellley School. It is easier to get into, but may not be as much of a help for you in breaking into consulting.

Good luck!

I would consider Chicago and Northwestern. If you are willing to travel one state farther, Michigan would also make a good choice.
