masters in management vs mba [#permalink] New post 14 Feb 2009, 05:13
Hi all,

I come from a mixed background (2 unrelated bachelor degrees), have a good gmat (730) and gpa (3.7) but only 3 years work experience, half of which as an entrepreneur (started up a successful bar with a staff of around 6) and the other year and a half as an application developer intern with Microsoft and Goldman

I think this might not be enough to get into a top business school but i really want a career change and go into management

Do you think a Masters In management, that targets pre-experience students, such as that from LBS, HEC, or LSE London would serve me well to get a management job or will I be in direct competition with MBAs?

I would rather wait another 2 years and get an MBA if the MiM won't serve me well, but I would love to do it now since I really want a career change at this point

any opinions on masters in management from the European schools?

Do you want to work in the US or Europe? In the US, the MiM doesn't have nearly the same brand recognition as an MBA, and you probably will not get the same opportunities that an MBA would provide. However, I'm not sure why you think you don't have enough experience for an MBA. Your experience sounds very interesting and if you apply for fall 2010 entry, you'll have 4 years work experience at matriculation, which is close to the avg of 5 years. Plus, some schools like HBS and Stanford are specifically trending more towards younger applicants.

You've got a lot of time before the next application season starts this fall, so you can do school research to find where you think you'll fit, and start thinking about how to spin your work experience and career goals into a compelling case for MBA admission.
