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
