With 1 year of work-ex, can i get a good Busines School? [#permalink] New post 24 Sep 2008, 01:05
I have completed my B.Tech in Computer Science in May 2008. After completion I worked in software industry for 3 months. With MBA in consideration I changed my working domain. Presently I am working as trainee in Business Department (BD) of a reputed organization. BD is the core strategy department of the organization. By August 2009 I would be having 14 months of time work-ex. Beside it I have 6 months of part time work ex in field of software support for a small organization (during last 6 months of my university stay). I want to pursue MBA course in fall ’09 but the problem is most of the Business Schools require 2 years of minimum work ex which I don’t have. Also as most of the deadlines for application for international student are in December /January and by that time I would be having work-ex of only 6-7 months and would be able to show only one career progress i.e. from trainee to executive. As for my academics is concern, I have got 67% marks. Grading is average in all subjects, but I have A+ (A+ is the highest grade in my university) in one year project work (in team of 4). Then as for leadership and management is concerned, I was co-founder of my university Linux Group and also implemented and managed a experimental project “Online Radio Service” in a team of three which aired for a month. I would be giving my GMAT exam in December and hope to score 700 or more (with better score in quantitative than in verbal).
Some of Business schools in which I am interested in are:
• NYU (Stern)
• UCLA (Anderson)
• University of Chicago
• Yale University
• Columbia University
• Cornell University (Johnson)
• Carnegie Mellon (Tepper)
• UC Berkeley (Haas)
• Dartmouth (Tuck)
• UNC - Chapel Hill (Kenan-Flagler)
• Thunderbird
• University of Michigan (Ross)
• Duke University (Fuqua)
• Georgetown University (McDonough)
• University of Virginia (Darden)

I will be very thankful if you can guide me what I should do and what are my chances of getting into a good business school for MBA finance
Thanks
