emba advice [#permalink] New post 15 Mar 2005, 17:01
My Profile:

- 12 years as software engineer in Health IT with large multi-national. Increasing levels of responsibility. Currently functioning as technical lead for small teams of developers

- 15 years owner of paint contracting business

- BS in Computer Science 3.70 GPA

- GMAT 680 (taken once)

I am looking to change my direction and enter management within the Health IT industry, ergo my interest in obtaining an MBA. I'm looking at various schools in the mid-atlantic area. including Drexel, Cornell, NYU and Georgetown. I have several questions: Should I take the GMAT again? I'm sure I could break 700 but don't know how significant that would be. How crucial is company backing in gaining admittance? I have their support and excellent recommendations but only $5k a year towards tuition. It's difficult to judge between these schools; there's a large differential in costs and rankings. Any tips on which would be my best bet?

You are competitive at these schools' EMBA programs with a 680 GMAT.

More and more EMBA students are paying their own way or receiving less money. See "EMBA Trends."

For additional advice on applying to EMBA programs, please see "Executive MBA: Applying to EMBA Programs."
