I wish to get some information about programs that I can apply to as a fresher.
I am aware that to do an MBA, one needs work experience of atleast 3 years, but I have heard of programs like MiM and MEM that accept applicants with 0-2 years of Work Experience. Can you list some more of such kind of programs?
Where can I find more information, related to list of schools that offer these, their rankings and so on?
What do you think about such programs?
The main reason why I want to pursue a Masters degree so early is mainly to improve Job opptortunities for myself.
My GMAT score is 720
Here in India, we dont have GPA system, but I am pretty sure that mine would lie in the "Low GPA" category.
Would it be possible to get into top schools that offer MIM/MEM/(any other programs for freshers) despite the low GPA? If yes, how so?
I am keenly waiting for your reply.
Thanks in advance.
Conveniently, the Financial Times publishes a ranking of these programs here
. This does not include the new program at Duke
or UVA's MSc in Commerce
in the US.
The main criteria for these programs is academic excellence (as demonstrated by GPA and GMAT) and community involvement, so you may need to explain the reason for your lower GPA.
