I intend to have a good GPA during my graduation for the MBA program. What other advise would you give me in improving my profile for a Phd program during my 2 years of MBA. I wish to thank you in advance for your time and cooperation.

Do a case writing assignment with some Prof during your MBA. Also may be a research assistant position. The question in your SOP may be why PhD after MBA ? so think about that.
