MS vs MBA Need to take a decision soon. Help Plz [#permalink] New post 05 Dec 2011, 13:26
Hello Everyone

Need ur help
plz treat this very important as i need to decide on this before Jan15th

I am Thomas Albert from India. Am looking forward to enroll for MBA 2013 Fall intake.
Am having 5 years of quality work experience. Am planning to do full time MS Finance program from a reputed university in US in 2012.
How does Adcom evaluate my profile if i apply to MBA program for 2013 intake soon after the completion of MS Finance program?
Does this strengthen my application or weaken my chances to get in as my 5 years of work experience will be prior to MS Finance that am planning to do.

My priority is in doing MBA. So I dont want to compromise on MBA at any cost.
I wish to do MS in Finance and later get specilisation in MBA in Strategic Management or General Mangaement.

If doing MS now will make my chances for getting into MBA later as my work ex is prior to MS Finance and i will hold no work ex after MS, then am ready to wait for one more year and apply to MBA program.

This is my profile

GMAT - 750
TOEFL - 110
Undergraduation - Bachelors in Business Management (BBM) from a reputed college in Bangalore, India.
Undergrad score - 57% (not sure how it looks in GPA)
Work Ex - 5 years in Retailing and Importing.

Preferred Universities

Duke
Texas A&M
Brigham
University Of Rochester

Well sir, first of all you have very nice test scores, and even with your low GPA I think you might be able to applier to some higher ranked schools if you are interested.
Now as far as your story with the MS in Finance and MBA, you have one diploma too much in this story. If you want an MBA, get an MBA. If you want to focus on finance and not on management, go for the MS. In either case, afterwards, the rest of your knowledge skills and experience should come from your job. You can easily for example do an MBA specializing in Finance, and then through your job pick up whatever additional finance knowledge you need, and it's far better and more logical than doing yet ANOTHER degree.

Hope this clears things up for ya.
