MBA after internships? [#permalink] New post 06 Jun 2013, 04:33
Hey!

I am done with my bachelor in Germany (B.Sc. in Business Administration - top 2 school) and decided on doing a GAP Year with several internships from now on.

Adding to the internships I did before / during university, at the time of entering a graduate program, I would have 2 years of work experience in total.

Do you guys think it makes sense to do an MBA right afterwards with all working experience through the past internships or should I rather consider doing a M.Sc. and an MBA at some point afterwards?

Thanks!

Hi,
depends which schools your aiming to. Many schools are sensitive to the work experience factor and want to substantial progress there (responsibilities, promotions, etc.). If there are no unusual factors in your appication, I would gain that experience before applying. Bear in mind that the M. Sc. will not necessarily advance your chances.

Hi,

the plan would be to do a M.Sc. and then work for at least 2 yrs before applying...

Also keep in mind that nearly all credible schools don't count internships as work experience - they're just EC's. So I would recommend getting an actual job and moving up and showing signs of leadership and responsibility and THEN apply.

Another question: Does a good M.Sc. make up for an average B.Sc.?

In high school I had a GPA of 3.4-3.5, during my bachelor I guess I was in between 3.0-3.1 . Does a good grade within the M.Sc. (3.3-3.5) help / override my bachelor grade?
