Work exp:Indian IT industry.work experience will be 3 years during the date of joining in college
Started a company named Returnwealth financial services-independent equity resarch firm for last 2 years and been rated as one of the very wel growing companies in my place ..
Goal: to wor in an investment firm for few years and start a own company and to project it to a world class level.
So planning to pursue MBA in finance
Been awarded as champion at work in a very ample amount of time when i joined the company
Been Placement co-ordinator and IEEE chairman in my college
District level cricket player and been represented as captain of my college team
Active volunteer of NSS during the college level
I want experts to advise me on the following things
1) Which colleges do i get good chance to get into.Really confused on this because of my very low work experience.
2)My very low work experience say 3 years while joining will that impact much and which colleges prefer these kind of people?
3)If i retake and get 750 in GMAT will that be more helpfull stil?
Really will be very thankful for your advises
Three years of work experience is a little less than average for most programs, but it shouldn't be a big issue if you have clear goals, can show advancement on the job, and demonstrate maturity. You might be interested in MBA Admissions: Application Advice for Younger Applicants.
. And if necessary, just apply again with more experience.
Consider the following programs: NYU Stern, Cornell Johnson, Darden, UCLA Anderson, Carnegie Mellon. and Chicago Booth.
Finally, a 750 may help you, but I don't think it will be a major advantage because you already have shown you can do the work. So you have to weigh up the hassle, time, and expense of a retake versus the likelihood of a 750 and the possibility a higher score could make the difference.
