MBA Strategy - Input/Feedback greatly appreciated! [#permalink] New post 17 May 2005, 10:00
Folks, This is my first post after having followed some of the discussions here. I am currently having a masters degree in IT from a US school (3.7GPA). My intention is to get into a top-10 MBA school 3-4 years from now and am looking at the following game plan:

Work for the next 3-4 years (am 23 yrs old now) with good experience in all aspects of an IT business + looking at GMAT 700+ = top 10-15 B School

I have an offer from a relatively young IT company(3 years just 10 staff) but I can see that they are product oriented (as supposed to service oriented) and they are somewhat of a monopoly in the local market for their software. They are bringing in fresh talent for improving all aspects of their business and though my offer is for a technical role I think it has good potential for me to explore all aspects of their business. Might also negotiate for a stock option in the company if possible depending on my role in the next 2-3 years.

My question is should I go forward and take this offer and look at B School 3-4 years from now or try for openings in bigger companies. Do the top 10-15 b schools take into consideration significant roles played by applicants in smaller companies? We all know the risks involved in startups and this could be a mistake for me but guess I can afford to take risks now more than I would be able to in the future.

I would greatly appreciate all comments in this regard.

Your plan sounds good. B-schools definitely value start-up experiences in which you have broad exposure, several leadership experiences and demonstrate great work.
