MBA vs MIS with 580 in GMAT [#permalink] New post 09 Oct 2012, 12:15
Hi Friends,

I am done with GMAT (580/V-27/A-44 and 5.5 in AWA)and not in a situation to re-take.

I want to do MBA in a decent university, but with this score am not sure if it will work out. Some of my friends suggest to go for MIS, but am not sure on the prospects.

My Profile:

** 4+ Years of experience in a Fortune 500 company (Software)
** Engineering in Computer Science / GPA 3.6
** Has been managing a team of 5-8 for the past 2 years ( Have good leadership skills to be projected)
** Active participant in company's social initiatives.
** Involved in many business proposals to attract new clients/projects.

Please advice on the same.

***Note: Looking for Universities in Mid-West, preferrably in and around Chicago :).

Would you consider a part-time MBA?

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, you need to think about what you want to do after your earn your graduate degree BEFORE you enroll in a masters program to enroll in a masters program. An MIS degree will deepen your knowledge of computer science and information systems, but it will not give you the business skills of an MBA, and vice versa. Make sure you study what you need to study to pursue your professional goals. And if your top goals aren't feasible and you are now pursuing secondary goals, that's fine, but again, will your course of study enable you to achieve the secondary goals.

Best,
Linda
