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.
University Of Rochester
Thanks to all in Advance
It sounds to me like you should be applying to joint MS/MBA programs since you seem to want both degrees but I do believe that the MS studies will make MBA admission a challenge. Frankly, you will have to apply to the MBA almost as soon as you begin your MS studies, so it will be difficult to explain your reasoning. For example, Tepper has a joint MBA/MS in Computational Finance program and NYU offers an MBA/MS in Mathematics in Finance. The key is going to be explaining why both of these degrees make sense for you in terms of your short- and long-term goals.
