Hello guys,

I just finished my gmat 2 weeks ago. Got a 700 ( 49 in Q, and 35 in V)

I have been a sofware engineers for 5 years and work for one of the most prestigious companies in the bay area. I am kind of in a tech lead role,learning leadership and the management aspect of it is pretty challenging. My gpa in undergrad ( BE in Computer science) is 3.8/4

To be honest, I am not sure at all about schools to apply and I havent done a lot of research yet. I want to start seriously now, and would like to get some advice on where to start, factors to look for,best schools for my background.

I know that I sound as if I am not too sure about what I want, but thats the state I am in. I definetely want an MBA, for 2 reasons. One, I dont want to be an engineer all my life, and two..I think I need to learn a lot about the business aspect of the industry. Right now, I am pretty clueless on how to run a business, how to evaluate business models, how to generate revenue.

So, if someone on this group can point me in the right direction and resources to use, I would be very thankful.

thanks in advance,
bhatta

Do you have any sense where you want to pursue your MBA (US, Canada, Asia, Europe)?

If US, any regional preference within the country?

Based on your post, it sounds like you would be interested in a program that provides a broad overview of business- is this accurate?

Do you wish to transition away from engineering entirely?

Thanks for the reply Hjort.

I would like to pursue MBA mainly in the US and Europe (INSEAD).

In the US, I would like to stick to the bay area (either stanford or berkeley), but that is not a strong preference. If I get into a good school I'll be glad to move there :)

Yes, you are right. I would like to start wiht something at a broad level and as things interest me, I would like to specialise/dig deep into it.

I am not so sure I want to move away from engineering totally. I would like to be able to use business knowledge in conjunction with a technical background. Move up the ladder to make bigger decisions..probably be armed with the set of skills a CTO has,for example.
