I was curious why if you get an MBA from another lower school, then try to apply to a higher school do the higher schools look down on this?
I don't have my MBA. I just graduated from undergrad in August. I just wanted to read your thoughts on this. Cause I have a few friends with MBA's and they want to go back to get a better MBA for contacts etc...
Also what about a MSF? If I were to get an MSF then go for my MBA would this be favored or would I be in the same boat as a person with an MBA applying for another MBA.
I cannot argue with any1 about the idea's quality. but To me it is a good idea. I am going to have MSc in acc and finance or just finance then get a good pay job at big4 or small org and work for about 2-3 yrs then do MBA or ACA may be CFA and go to IBANK finally. why to do mba twice, first do MSF and then work after then do mba.
I s/b the best to answer this question since I already have an MBA from a small state clollege down south from 8 years ago. It VERY much complicated my "real MBA" process. So far I have come accross 4 type of schools in regards to their approach to a previous MBA:
1) Flat out no due to school policy : Northwestern,NYU,Tuck,Duke,UNC,USC,UCLA,Berkeley 2) Yes but have to be strongly addressed in optional essay : H/S/W, Michigan,Chicago,MIT,Carnegie-Mellon, Ivey (Canada) 3) Yes but strongly discouraged: Yale 4) Clueless (which is not a good sign) : Emory, Georgia Tech
All in all it closes a lot of doors on one's face right at the start. Every MBA event I attended, I had to ask this issue as my first question and had a lot of "sorry..." in response. The schools who ask for an additional essay differ in their enthusiasm, and potentially in their sincerity. And even if they are sincere, the previous MBA is clearly a disadvantage.
So far it does nothing but complicate the application process. I do not recommend getting one "just for getting it" and then going for the "real" one. I've had one due to a bad decision made 8 years ago.My advice would be : Be ready for a much tougher road to admittance if you already have an MBA.
Sorry I forgot, MSF will not be working against you, and in some cases may even work for you demonstrating a strong interest and experience in quantitative financial matters. I never heard anything against it in all my research.
