What schools should I be targeting? [#permalink] New post 01 Apr 2012, 13:20
Hello

I have an MSc and BSc in Economics from the University of Manchester and almost 3 years work experience at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in Transactions, Corporate Finance and Restructuring Services. I am expected to be ACA qualified with first time passes in the near future. I worked predominantly with insurance and Asset management companies.

What are my chances of gaining admission to a top UK program given a good GMAT score? Also, would staying with the firm for another year or two in order to gain solid management experience (I am a high performer and have been offered an assistant management position post qualification) significantly add to my application?

I hope to use the MBA experience to transition into financial services consultancy.

Thank you

Hi Daui,

Your have good academics and a remarkable corporate exposure. Per your Profile MBA Full and future goals Full time MBA would be the best fit for you. You can definitely apply to top UK Business Schools like LBS, University of Cambridge, University of Oxford and Manchester Business School etc.
Having work experience in an Asset Management company and being a high performer in your work area could add an additional value to your MBA Application. You will even have to justify these achievements in both your personal interview and essays.

The next step for you is to focus more on your GMAT Score and application essays for these Business Schools.

Hence it would be highly advisable to seek assistance from professional consultants for guidance on getting a good GMAT score, letters of recommendations and get your essays/scholarship essays evaluated before sending it out along with your application. Also consider taking classes for GMAT preparation to have an eligible GMAT score.
