Hi I am from India and new to this forum and its really good to be here. I have some queries which I state below:
I got my undergraduate degree this year and will be joining a company mid July. I plan to gain experience in the company and then go for MBA abroad. I wish to know how much experience(in years) would I require for an admission to a B-School. I am interested in Finance and also wish to know how to prepare for GMAT and the score i should target for it...Thank YOU!!!
Besides the number of years of work experience, focus on the experience itself. So once you enter your company make sure to be head and shoulders above the rest of your co-workers. I'm not stating that you "step on them." I'm saying that you focus on grabbing leadership opportunities. Also, since you're from India, you have to have a stellar application: from the GMAT (I heard you ought to have at least 740, hope people could chime in on this) to GPA (3.5 and above) to work experience. I'm not stating that these are the be-all and end-all statistics.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
