MBA or MiM?? [#permalink] New post 14 Aug 2013, 22:53
Hi

I'm a college senior from India. I was all set to apply for MiM courses this fall but my father kind of convinced me to work for 2-3 years and then apply for MBA. I wanted to ask you guys what exactly is the difference b/w MiM and MBA? And if i take up MiM, am i limiting my growth in any way? I was considering MiM because it has course content similar to that of MBA and the duration is about 10-12 months. I badly need some expert advice on this.

ThankYou

Listen to your father. :)

Seriously, an MiM is nice, but an MBA is much better. Work for three years and THEN apply to an MBA. But it IS great that you are thinking about it already! Because then you can make sure that you build your profile over the next years so that you will be prepared for an MBA.

These articles on different Different MBA Program Types (http://www.mbaprepadvantage.com/blog/di ... ram-types/) and What Type of Education can you Expect from an MBA Program? (http://www.topmba.com/blog/what-type-ed ... ba-program) might be helpful to you.

The Masters of Management degree is geared towards students with typically one or two years worth of experience. In addition to the MBA curriculum more basic classes are taught on different financial tools, career development, etc. London Business School’s Programme (http://www.london.edu/programmes/msc/pr ... tails.html) is considered one of the best. When evaluating Masters of Management programs assess employability by reading career reports as part of your MBA research. You will have less experience so you will be even more dependent on the school’s career services.

The MBA is a much broader program that usually consists of an MBA core curriculum, electives, majors, experiential learning opportunities, and leadership training.

There are also Future Leaders MBA Programs you might wish to investigate. Certain business schools offer specialized programs for applicants directly applying out of college. The schools are looking for future leaders who have strong grades, test scores, and undergraduate leadership and impact whether in extracurricular activities, athletics, arts or other fields. Students within HBS’ 2+2 Program are granted deferred admission; they spend two years working in a company or nonprofit organization prior to attending HBS for two years. Students in Yale’s Silver Scholars Program graduate in three years, attending class for the first and third years while spending the middle year in a full-time internship. Stanford GSB offers deferred admission to college seniors of one to three years.

If you go to an MiM program instead of an MBA Program you risk learning only a subset of what you would learn at an MBA program and graduating with a degree that has less branding in the marketplace.

Good luck,
