Request profile evaluation gmat - 730 [#permalink] New post 21 Sep 2010, 16:23
Age - 28
GMAT - 2nd try 730 , 1st try was 630, not sure is that a concern
Work - 6 years accounting/tax/audit in North America, now a tax manager in a big 4 accounting firm. Certified Accountant
Extracurricular - decent amount of activities, but nothing stellar
GPA- 3.9/4.33 of a good Canadian University specializing in accounting.

Plan: Switch career from tax to corporate finance.
Plan to work in Hong Kong after graduation from MBA

Target schools: UCLA, Chicago Booth, Columbia, Berkeley, Duke, NY Stern, Insead, London business school etc.

Was thinking of HK UST, but does HK UST have a good international reputation?

Also, I am planning to work in HK after graduation from MBA, so would going to US business schools make sense?


Thanks for your time.

Your first try is not a concern.

Your target programs are appropriate considering your goals and qualifications. Good job. :-)

HKUST has an good reputation in Asia. It is not as well known outside of Asia and does not have as strong a reputation internationally as your other target programs.

The schools you are talking about place graduates internationally, but if you want to move to HK, you can make a very good argument for attending HKUST or other Asian b-schools.

Best,
Linda
