Hello,

Unfortunately I don’t have close knowledge of the ISB early-entry program to advise on your chances.

I will note however that as you’re aware, the undergrad record is a weakness; if it trended up, that will at least be a mitigating factor. If it was flat or trended down, it will have a heavier impact. Since you have some time before applying, I suggest taking a relevant course or two locally or online and earning A’s to demonstrate academic capability (your GMAT demonstrates a certain kind of smartness, but not ability to excel in the classroom – only actual grades provide such evidence, and adcoms want to see it).

Also, regarding [url]your goals[/url], plan carefully how to build your case from your start-up and IBM technical experience to go into management consulting.

Dear Cindy,

Thanks for replying.

I plan to take a bridge course now ( MS Finance/ MS Management ) before I get an MBA. Although its equivalent these days, having a functional expertise does sound good. Will help me demonstrate my academics ability also. MBA post such degrees is acceptable right?
Or is it no recommended?
