Low GPA [#permalink] New post 04 Oct 2011, 00:35
I am in the third year in the university studying Accounting and Finance but i really sucked and now my gpa is 3.41.I really worry about this and especially if it is possible to have a good grade in the end(say 3.65+) because i have two years to improve my grades and the subjects may become more difficult.I want to get into top Masters in finance or MBA after graduation,so this would be a huge obstacle to overcome,particularly if you want to be hired from top firms in consulting or investment banking :twisted:.Any advice?

IB demands the smartest people, and the best indicator for new employees competing in a knowledge-based economy are grades. Often companies will advise college admissions officers and recruiters that they will not see anyone with less than a B (3.0) average.

High CGPA with good EC specially sports activities are loved by IB recruiters. If you can keep it above 3.5, you are good. Bur first think about a decent MBA.

We use Birkman's method (Admissions committee of All colleges use ) for a Winning application.

if you can hop into a great MBA program then you'll do a lot better in IB. Your undergrad grade won't matter as much as your GMAT for MBA admissions
