I understand you are in a really confused state about doing masters now or MBA few years later.
As you pointed out your GPA is below par, but that’s not the only thing the schools look for in an application. You can compensate it with a great GMAT score, your leadership qualities and extracurricular activities. Focus on your GMAT. That’s the best solution to compensate for your weak GPA.
Between Masters and MBA, I will always prefer MBA. Because, in Masters you will be concentrating on a single field such as finance, etc whereas in an MBA, you will gain knowledge and exposure to different fields and understand how to coordinate between them. You might not become an expert in one field, but you can definitely become a jack of all trades. A concentration in a specific field such as Marketing, Finance, Private Equity, etc is possible. More over an MBA is much respected and valued in every field. So, I would recommend you continue your job, gain a good experience and then apply for an MBA. Remember to improve your leadership qualities and extracurricular roles before applying. Good luck.www.interviewbay.com
