Hello everyone. I'm a 22 year old Indian Male who just graduated this year and will be taking GMAT in the mid-December. Looking at top 20 MBA/Diferred MBA Programmes in the US and the UK.


I’m a Professional Footballer, from India who has played in top tier football clubs of the world like Stoke city FC (Premiership - UK)

That being said, I've achieved my undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Business Management (International Business) - BBM(IB)

And I have completed it in 4 years rather than 3 as I was on tour most of the time due to my sporting career.

Undergrad % - 54.(Approx.GPA:3.4, according to the official gmat conversion table).
Fluent in English and other 3 languages of India. Solid character like an Athlete should possess.

My father is a senior figure in the world of consultancy in my city (Pune) and the state.

I'm a bit confused as whether I should completely embrace this switch from one world to another totally different one, but I thought why not give it a try.

Obviously I won't nail the GMAT by getting a score like 750 or something. Not even 700 for that matter,but will try my best. I'm familiar with the application process and the diversity factor etc. But realistically what are we looking at here.

Honesty will be appreciated.

Any advices, suggestions, information.. Feel free to fire at will lol.

Thanks,
K.

Hi MBADecoder,

I would like to request a suggestion/opinion on a confusion I am facing. One of the B-School Forum Moderators suggested that I reach out to you for help as you people have a rich experience in the MBA admissions process.
I received an admit from a business school in Georgia, USA with a full scholarship and stipend/graduate assistantship. Therefore, I asked other two MBA schools for which my decision was pending after the interview if it is possible to provide my application decision sooner as I already have a decision in hand and wish to make an informed decision before paying out the enrollment fee. The schools reverted with a request to send them a copy of "Admission Letter" and "Scholarship Letter" before taking the case to the Admissions Committee for decisions.
Now, I am little confused whether to provide the letters or details such as the name of program, amount, the deadline for payment, etc. to those schools. I am not sure whether this would put my only admit into jeopardy or help me.
Kindly advise. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi,

I need some clarification in program selection.

I'm a mechanical engineering graduate with 1.5 years of core industry work experience. I graduated in 2016. I'm currently not employed anywhere though. I'm considering a Masters in Management program to improve my prospects.

Based on my research and interest, I have shortlisted the following programs:
1) Masters in Management
2) Masters in Engineering Management
3) Masters in Finance

The programs start in Sept 2019. Most probably I'll have a job by the time I join the program. So, that is 26 months of core engineering work experience.

I know that an engineering management degree will build on my engineering background and open up opportunities in the field.

However, I've some questions related to MiM and MFin for which I'm not able to find satisfying answers. Please help as this a critical moment for me and I lack guidance.

Q1) Is a MiM degree suitable for me at this stage? What sort of career opportunities will open up for me? [Considering my experience]

Q2) I have already applied to some MFin programs. I'm still waiting to hear from the schools. However, is my 26 months of engineering work experience a problem for further employment in the field? I have no relation with finance whatsoever. What is the potential upside and pitfalls that I should know about?

Please Help. Any help is highly appreciated.
