I am a 29 year old Male from the USA. I currently work in Moscow as a theatre director.

Since I graduated (B.A. in Theatre and B.S. in Literature) from undergraduate I recieved a Fulbright fellowship for Russia.

I have worked now in the arts for the last 5 years, picked up a Masters degree from a Moscow institute, but have realized that I would like to change careers.

I am interested in International Management but am wondering if my arts background will hurt me.

I have not taken the GMAT yet, but am really looking for some guidance on how to make this transition.

Wow! Don't be shy about your different, "artsy" background. That makes you very unique in admissions officers' eyes. A Fulbright fellowship is pretty impressive.

I obviously don't know much about you, but I think you definitely have a shot at a top MBA program. The key will be to really show that you have the analytical/quant skills to suceed in business school, so be sure to nail the GMAT. Study, take some practice tests, and see where you stand. We don't advocate that everyone needs to take a GMAT course, but someone like you -- who has been outside of business and really should make sure to nail the GMAT -- should consider it if it looks like you won't be able to achieve at least a score in the high 600's on your own.
