Need help to finalize MBA universities [#permalink] New post 23 Dec 2010, 21:46
Hi,
I have shortlisted a List of Universities , but i am not really sure whether these universities would suit my profile. I would need some help to suggest whether these are fine or should apply to some other universities. A brief about my profile is:
GMAT Score:690
TOEFL Score:109
Work Exp: approx 3 years in IT organisation
BE Aggregate: 70%

The Univ shortlisted by me were:
uni of colorado boulder
uni of miami
tulane University
Uni of Missouri Columbia
san jose state uni

i am looking forward to MBA in IT, and good universities where funding could be an option and good campus opportunites.
Any help would be highly appreciated

You certainly have a very strong profile for all these programs. I am sure you will be admitted to more than 1 of them.

The larger question is what you really want to do. Just so you understand there is NO concept of campus placements in US MBA programs. An MBA from a lower ranked institute, a loan in $ amount, and a student VISA status is not a great position to be in at any time. If the market is good, and you are well connected, then you should find someone to sponsor your H1 visa. Else the going might be very tough. If you are okay with returning to India then this is fine. Only that in India companies will slot you with MBAs from places like Symbiosis etc.

So think through the options before proceeding.

Arun

PS: I am going by your user-name and assuming your an Indian working in India. Sorry if I am being presumptuous :)

@psychodementia : Hi, thanks for your reply.. :)
Well i am most worried right now is about the return of investment . so i wanted to apply to some good universities where chances of getting Jobs later is higher than others.
But, i wasnt really sure that the list of universities i am applying to would fulfill that criteria , so was wondering whether i should apply to some other better univs.

Thanks

There are no guarantees but see if you check the Businessweek rankings and look at the ones in the top 30 to begin with.

Being an Indian student in a foreign land is not easy. Especially in these times.
