MBA to make career switch or open up new career paths [#permalink] New post 23 May 2013, 14:01
I am 33 years old (not young anymore). If I want to pursue an MBA to make a career switch or open up new career paths. Which or what kind of MBA should I be looking for? :roll:

I have booked my GMAT appointment in September and really wish to do well. This is my 5th time and the last time I attempted it was 3 years ago. I basically gave up but just want to try it one more time. :oops:

What would be the best strategy to smoke the GMAT say how many hours should I study per day? Which books should I go with? Currently I have some Kaplan. If I want to get into Finance, Investment banking and Management Consulting, what's the best school to try in Toronto, Canada? :?:

I am a Mechanical engineer by the way..... I want to open up some doors to other better career opportunities by doing the MBA especially in Management Consulting, Performance Management, Finance/Investment banking. 8-)


Thanks a lot

Hey Sokenyou!

Don't worry you are not the only one attempting the GMAT for the 5th time. The good thing is that you have a good idea about the test and also a bit of introspection would help you jot down the reasons you didn't do very well in your previous attempts. Did you directly jump to practicing without strengthening your basics, did you have some time management issues, were you strong in one section but not in the other, whatever the reasons were just make sure you are aware of them. If you'll acknowledge your mistakes, then only you'll be able to rectify them! Get the entire set of Manhattan strategy guides to build your foundation, and the Official Guide to practice some real time questions.
If you are looking at switching careers, then aim for a traditional 2 year MBA ( instead of the one year ones) because that will give you an opportunity of an internship in the field of your choice.
Rotman Business School in Toronto is excellent for Finance and would be ideal if you wish to work in the Finance sector in Canada.
