1.What can I do to make my profile stronger ? (take additional courses in local univ? etc…?)
2.How to justify my bad under grad?
Please provide your views.I have given GMAT 7 days back. I know 550 is not a good score. I will be giving GMAT again in August. I will be targeting atleast 640. (Want to be realistic). I will be planning 4 fall 2013 MBA batch.
If my experience is not much then can anyone suggest any other management course.If its MIS in US then can anyone explain what is use of MIS in India
One way to make your profile stronger is by retaking the GMAT
. Good that you know this and are willing to retake. A higher GMAT score will open more b-school doors for you.
You have not written much about your work profile. In general, admissions team like to see career progression and sound career goals. Highlight any managerial responsibilities in your essays. In case you have not got this chance at work, talk about leadership experiences in your extra-curricular activities (which sound very interesting).
MBA v/s. MIS - you will need to take this call. An MBA is a generalist degree. It will give you an overall perspective on business and a chance to change your business function/ industry. MIS on the other hand is more specific to the IT industry. Decide your career goals and you will have some answer to this.
Hope this helps.
