I have worked full-time/part-time ever since I was 16 until even now.
So i am not sure if my work-experience will be considered. I have always worked in high-end retail industry such as For Joseph, Christian Dior, Coach, etc as either sales or cashier/customer service representative. Since I am in Las Vegas, I am always constantly dealing with people from all over the world.
GMAT: I anticipate to take my GMAT during the end of September, hopefully being about to shoot for 660+.
Aspiration: since I have previous experience in high-end luxury brand retail, I have always been interested in working for a luxury brand corporation, or being a management consult for an interntional luxury company. Eventually, I hope to become a CEO or have my own company.
because I am still young, but yet I dont want to wait to apply just because of my work experience or my age since I have already worked through my college career, is it possible that you can recommend some schools within the US or internationally that I have a good chance of acceptance and with good career placement. I am looking to work internationally or within the US after the MBA. I greatly appreciate your help.
