From science major to MBA? [#permalink] New post 02 Jun 2011, 09:30
Hey, I'm a UG from a top 10 private university who was originally interested in an MD/PhD but realizing I would rather go into science management/tech/biotech start-ups in the future and that an MBA would make more sense for what I want to do. I have a 3.6 GPA as a chem major and have already scored a 760 on the GMAT. Based on these raw stats, should I consider applying for an MBA straight out of college, HBS's 2+2, or just go back to my MD/PhD ways? And what about PhD/MBA programs, are they useful at all? Thanks!

I read somewhere that the HBS 2+2 program prefers science/liberal arts applicants instead of business majors. I believe it was Sandy (the HBS guru) but not positive.

thank you all for your feedback. Also, would taking an intro economics sequence be necessary for 2+2? It's been kind of tough finding a hole in the schedule to fit it in...
