What else can GMAT be used for other than MBA programs [#permalink] New post 06 Jun 2011, 01:36
I wrote the GMAT a number of years ago and got 750. I have one year left until the score expires, so I'd like to use it to apply to some shcools.

I am not interested in MBA programs -- the curriculums do not appeal to me, I do not want to be a professional manager, and am turned off by the blog pages of many MBA students. I also got paid to do my engineering masters, so I do not feel like paying some enormous tuition fee for a program I'd have trouble liking.

I am a 30 year old engineer and have worked in several countries. Do not want to continue with this path as it's mostly project managment, other than for very technically gifted people, of whom I am not one.

Originally I was going to use the GMAT score to get into a financial engineer program, which I did, but then the financial sector collapsed and I decided not to go as the tuition was almost 50k.

I'd prefer to work in Canada.

Any suggestions for programs?

Hi mrmojo,

Congratulations on the excellent GMAT score. What I recommend you do is first identify what you are interested in for your career, and then decide on whether a graduate degree will help align you with those goals. You shouldn't look at an MBA or any graduate degree as an end goal; you should look at it as a stepping stone to achieving whatever you are looking for.

The reason why I mention this is you should identify your career post-graduation, and then see if graduate school is the right decision, as opposed to first identifying which programs accept the GMAT, and then looking at options after you graduate.

I hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
