mba on end of undergrad? [#permalink] New post 08 Mar 2006, 00:12
HEy all,
I am extremely keen on working management consultancy after graduation, but i think it might be dicey getting in --
I have a 3.8 undergrad from Mechanical Engineering @ UT Austin
work part time all through school
about to graduate in 3.5 yr with degree + about three major organization leadership roles.
I got rejected@ bain for summer:(
But, might land a decent summer internship this year at KLA-Tencor or perhaps one of the small i-banks or maybe Occidental or some O&G company.
I am really keen on management consultancy since I want the dynamic change and growth that is omni present. I do not want to use my ME degree to design pumps!!
now, i am still keen on maybe a Masters in fin engineering at princeton or some place .. so will take gre n gmat before aug!
but what is your views on which schools if any will take mba students out of undergrad.
THanks a lot for your views,
Shreenath
btw. UT is rosebowl champs WOOHOo!!

ps.: im international which basically knocks out like 50% of the hiring outta UT !!

Does UT Austin itself have a program that lets undergrads go right into b-school? I'm not sure, but I have heard that McCombs is friendly to young applicants. Harvard and Stanford are also known to be friendly to young applicants, but those are obviously tough for anyone.

Heyya,
thanks for the response..
UT AUstin does have a JUMPSTART program that it just started. It has tied up with a bunch of companies for specific jobs which will allow you to get job+direct admission to UT mccombs. Now, direct young applicants I can realise is possible. I personally dont know what to do next, but wnat to do B-School to see the options and gain credibility... this is not too good a reason to goto b-school i think-- would you agree?
Also, I am sure if and when i do take the gmat (another qn- when is good? i can graduate in dec 06 or may 07 and then go on to work someplace--+mba OR work+MS+work+mba OR MS+work+mba --
thanks for ideas/suggestions
adios

First of all, thanks for alerting me to the McCombs Jump Start program... I hadn't seen that before. You're doing my job for me. :-)

I think that's a great program, especially because it gets you three years of experience before you go to b-school. Even if a b-school admits you now, keep in mind that employers who are looking recruiting at the b-school may still be reluctant to hire someone with no "real world" experience. That's why I think the Jump Start program could really work well.

In terms of GMAT timing, my best advice is simply to take it when you're most ready. Don't rush it!
