School suggestion for Profile- 690 GMAT and Low work exp. [#permalink] New post 01 Dec 2013, 21:15
Hi. :-D

I would really appreciate some advice on what B-schools I can look at, to get an MBA.
I want to take up Marketing mainly with some coursework in Finance.
I am interested in schools in California and Texas.

Profile:
GMAT - gave three days back and scored 690. Waiting for AWA score.

Education - MS (Electrical and Computer Engineering) - University of Illinois at Chicago - Graduated in 2012 May with 3.19 GPA
Undergrad in India - Electronics & Communications Engineering - Grad: 2010 May - 65% aggregate.
Experience - 8 months part time job during MS - teaching Math to high school students.
Total of 7 to 8 months internships after my MS - in the field of Electrical Engineering.

I am in India now, for the last two months - working for a good hospital here on Hospital Branding and Marketing. I will work here till July 2014 for sure.
Apart from this, I have some event volunteering and welfare organization volunteering experience.

I understand that my Work Exp is poor and I will not get into excellent schools. :( But due to personal reasons and because i want to make a career transition, I have decided to do my MBA soon.

I want an MBA that gives me lot of exposure in the field and helps me get a job in the same. :)

So, I am looking for some insights on my mba school search.
I have been looking California State univ - Fullerton and would like your opinions on the program.

Thanks 8-) 8-) :-D :-D :-D :) :)

Hi apple89,

Thanks for posting. For your candidacy, I recommend you read this case study of an Indian engineer who was accepted into a top MBA program. It should provide insight for your application: http://www.stacyblackman.com/client-stories/

Best wishes,
Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
