Hi All,

I am Planning to prepare for GMAT and looking for 1 year MBA course (Information Systems) in US.
I have completed Mtech in Computer Science and have 3 yrs of IT experience...

firstly....

Is this the right time for me to prepare and give GMAT for 2014 January intake?
Are there any schools/ Universities offering 1 year MBA..?

Regards
Shruthi

Hi Shruti,

Well you have loads of time but don't be complacent and utilize it well. The sooner you clear off this GMAT hurdle the better but don't rush either.
If you think you are sufficiently prepared and ready to give your best, write it. Also you would get to know in advance if you need to retake or you got the score you wanted.

Also writing good application essays takes time. you need to research about colleges. The better you know about the program requirements and offerings, the better you would be able to choose.
So in my opinion.. write it whenever you feel comfortable.. get a good score and focus on other aspects of you BSchool candidacy.. GMAT is just one of the things.

Best Regards,
Mansoor

With 3-4 years of experience there are not many US schools that would offer you 1 year MBA, they typically require 10 years or so. However in Europe/ Canada almost all schools offer 1 year MBA. If you are sticking to US you can go for 1 year Masters in Information Systems.

Abhij,

I prefer US only...
When you say Masters, is it MBA or PGDBM or MS you are talking about....
I have completed MTech in computer Science and have 3 years exp in technical field. So prefer management side now..

Please advise which course you are talking about and which Exam should be taken for the same..

Its masters degree by B Schools - if you go to B Schools and look for Graduate Programme you would find MIS(Masters in Information Systems).

For example:
http://www.heinz.cmu.edu/school-of-info ... index.aspx
Not all schools offer such degrees but several do. You will need to go to individual websites to find out.
I think you need to give GMAT for the same. Though many schools accept GRE now so you would need to go to individual sites to find out.
