Advice on schools and path to MBA [#permalink]
13 Aug 2012, 18:04
I am new to the forum. I am considering pursuing an MBA and need some advice/input.
I have a 4 year BSc. Honours Biological Science (GPA in final 2 years: 3.9/4.0), I also have a MSc. Biomedical Engineering (research based (GPA: 3.95/4.0)) and a graduate diploma. I have a strong science and engineering background. I can get strong reference letters from academic sources and my research supervisors.
I have part-time work experience as I have worked throughout the time I was in university to support myself but I do not have full-time work experience post graduation.
I have not yet written the GMAT and I am aiming to start my MBA in Fall 2013. I am a Canadian but open to doing my MBA anywhere in Canada or USA or I will also consider elsewhere.
My dilemma is that an MBA is a huge investment of my time, effort and money - I want to go to a school that has a well-established and reputable program. I am also interested in a Co-op program as it will allow me to get some experience and make connections. At this point, I am open to any area in business (finance, accounting, marketing etc). Assuming I score decently on the GMAT, which schools might be better for me? Any advice on how I should go about the path to an MBA?
I have been searching around and the two programs I have come across are the one at McMaster and Dalhousie with the Co-op option and no minimum work experience - Dal's program was established in 2009.
Any advice or input would be appreciated.
