Does university rank and age matters for MBA ? [#permalink] New post 09 Aug 2011, 09:03
With a CGPA 3.88 out of 4 in BBA from a low ranked university and a score of 720 in GMAT, I am pursuing MBA abroad.
I am 30. I studied BBA in Bangladesh Open University. This is a low ranked university. Though unofficial the rank is below 30000. Before that I completed graduation in Chemical Engineering , this time the university was one of the best in the country . But I took extra years( 7 years total) and graduated with a low CGPA (2.61 out of 4). Now I would like to get admitted into graduate business administration programs. Any help would be appreciated . Thanks in Advance.

I think poor Undergrad GPA may reflect negatively, however, I think being from Bangladesh and nice BBA GPA may help as you may be considered a diversity candidate and preferred over an Indian candidate with similar background.

Bottom line is that it would also depend on which tier of universities you want to target?
