Reason For MBA : Post MBA I am looking to working in Private Equity/Analytics firms in the real estate sector
Some of the countries that I am looking at are Singapore, Europe or India or any other schools offering 1 year programs.
1. I am looking for schools with fall intake and a 1 year - 1.5 years course MBA
2. Which schools should I target? What kind of GMAT score should i look at achieving?
3. Is there any thing else that I can do to boost my chances of getting into the Ivy League schools
Thanks for your post. To the questions:
1. I don't see a question here...
2. You should be aiming or an 800. If you aim lower, you will get lower. The top U.S. schools have an average GMAT of around 720-740 and that's what you need to be competitive.
3. Try to get into a role where you are doing more financial analysis than it appears you are doing now. Also, get into leadership roles, if not on the job than off. Finally, if you can get international exposure, that would be a plus.
