Need Serious Help for my Future [#permalink] New post 10 May 2005, 17:04
Hi friends,

I found this forum just few days ago and finding this extremely useful. At the same time i m cursing myself that i found this Forum so late. But anyways, better late than never.

I am a Mechanical Engineer, completed my engineering with good GPA, have two years of Job experience. But unfortunately becuase of some domestic problems, i left my Job and my education stopped . Now after setting up all the problems i need to start my education again and wish to pursue my MBA degree. But it seems that getting into good School GMAT is a mandatory requirement along with Toefl. Well, i m a Non-Native speaker so it would take me atleast 6-8 months for preparing for GMAT. But i don't want my this time to be wasted, so i would like to ask you people that is there any suitable program or short-term course related to MBA which i can do prior to MBA so that i save my time until i finish my GMAT and application process which may take upto one year and also that would be of much help to my MBA program as i don't even have the ABC's of Business.


I heard about CFA and CPA but I really don't have any idea what these courses are and will they be of any help if done prior to my MBA degree?
I am in Canada. Plz i need your guidance. Any course, Any short term Diploma, anything which turn out to be useful before starting my MBA program.

Any advise , help or suggestion will highly be appreciated.

It will be difficult to discuss this at length. If you want, you can private message me or you can set up a time and call me(I'm from Montreal). I am completing my CFA this year.

Hi Linda,

Well at this time i m not working anywhere. I'm unemployed for about 3 years as i couldn't concentrate on my Job. But i've 2 years of work experience after my graduation and i maintained very good GPA around 3.8. Well , ofcourse i want to have a good MBA related Job after completing the degree.

So i need to follow right path from senior people's advise and that is why i m feeling lucky to have found such a group.

What do you think? What are my options? How can i compensate this gap and how can i start my MBA career? What should be a good move for me at this stage?

Thanks.
Tsipkis.

The most effective step you can take to improve your chances of acceptance is to find a full-time job. I don't know if your domestic situation allows that now, but if you have been unemployed for the last 3 years, you will have a very hard time gaining acceptance to a top-tier program.

Good luck!
