Target Programs: NUS MBA,MSc Management in HEC, ESCP, EM Lyon
Post-MBA goal: I would like to join a management consulting firm in order to learn the intricacies of corporate strategy and decision-making. In the long term, I would like to practice as an independent consultant.
I know for one that MSc programs looks out for freshers and that I maybe considered ineligible. Will my work experience offset my decent GMAT?
NUS is probably a stretch with just the 2 years of SAP implementation experience; they'll want to see you rise in responsibility in the organization. The MSc programs have many students with a couple of years of experience, so yes, they are willing to "overlook" that. What matters most for the MSc programs is your academic ability and dedication.
