Hello,

My Ques: Does MSU often admits candidates who are not from supply chain, manufacturing background?

To begin with, I am an Engg. from Manipal Institute of Tech, 5 yrs work ex (at matriculation), GMAT 690.
I am working with Accenture Services India as a Senior Operations Analyst (with notable work accomplishments, appreciations and recommendations).

My goal is to move to operations/general management and shift to manufacturing/consumer products industry with the aim of working in Supply chain, production planning, inventory management.

Awaiting your response. Thanks in advance.

Hey thinking about applying to Eli Broad MBA program, taking the GRE instead of GMAT, I know they take both. Any idea what score they look at for the GRE, it doesn't say on their site, possibly due to not having enough data. Also looking to get either a GA, RA, or fellowship. what kind of scores are we looking at?

Thanks!

FROM Broad (Michigan State) MBA Blog: Students to Travel to India to Learn More About International Business
For the first time, students from Michigan State University’s Broad College of Business will attend the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB)

Nicholas Hammer

Anand Srinivas Janakiraman.

Summer Fellowship Program to learn about entrepreneurship in India.

Nicholas Hammer and Anand Srinivas Janakiraman, both beginning their second year in the Broad Full-Time MBA program this fall, will represent the school at the program “Creative Disruptions: The Story of Indian Entrepreneurship.” IIMB has waived the cost of the conference for the students, and MSU’s International Business Center is providing the students with a travel grant. This is consistent with the MBA program’s drive to position itself as a place that builds creative and innovative competencies.

Attendees will sit in on lectures, have interactions with entrepreneurs and visit companies, helping to gain insight on the Indian market.

For Janakiraman, the opportunity to interact with entrepreneurs in a global setting is intriguing. “I’m looking forward to getting to know how people evaluate ideas and turn them into a business, and interacting with those who have done so,” he said. “I want to learn how they do this and why.”

Hammer is excited, not only to see India, but also to gain another perspective on business, learning how other parts of the world are doing things. He also has an interest in the entrepreneurial mindset and working with small businesses and startups.

“It’s great to partner with the school and learn more about global business,” Hammer said.

Comparing this experience to his time abroad in Milan learning about investment banking will be an added asset for Hammer, who wants to understand business worldwide.

The students’ attendance at the program builds upon relationships started earlier this summer between Sanjay Gupta, The Eli and Edythe L. Broad Dean, and leadership at IIMB.

FROM Broad (Michigan State) MBA Blog: Broad MBA Continues Tradition of Quick Payback— Ranking
For the second year in a row, the Full-Time MBA Program at Michigan State University’s Broad College of Business has been cited for having the second shortest payback time among all programs ranked by Forbes—and the quickest payback in the Big Ten.

Forbes biennial MBA rankings are based solely on return on investment (ROI), calculated by measuring compensation five years after graduation and subtracting tuition and salary forgone during school.

The 2015 ranking places Broad’s program No. 8 among public schools and No. 22 overall. Since 2007, Forbes has consistently ranked Broad among the top 10 public institutions and the top 25 programs overall.

Broad alumni needed just 3.6 years to make up the costs of their MBA degrees in additional compensation, Forbes calculated, despite the surveyed students graduating in the heart of the economic downturn.

The magazine surveyed the Class of 2010 and requested pre-MBA salaries and compensation for three of the first five years after receiving degrees. Forbes then compared their post-MBA compensation with their opportunity cost: both tuition and the estimated salary they would have made had they stayed in their old jobs. Salary figures were adjusted to account for cost-of-living expenses, and the earnings gains were discounted using a rate tied to the discount rate large companies’ pension funds use.

For more information about this ranking, visit forbes.com.

Hello Ishita,

You need to upload your essays to the following link after creating an account.
https://app.applyyourself.com/AYApplicantLogin/fl_ApplicantLogin.asp?id=MSU-MBA

See attached image below for directions on uploading the essays.

Regarding video essay questions, see below discussion on Class of 2017 thread.

I received like 3 Pms about the video essays, so I figured I would just post a response here.

Video Essays:
Just wanted to debrief on the video essays. I did mine back in Sept.

Questions were a random set from a pool of questions. They were your typical interview type questions, but wee kind of on the hard side. I can't remember my exact questions, but they were along the lines of: example of a challenge , example of dealing with a team, what is a leader, weaknesses... Things along those lines.

You get a chance to record the answer three times. So, if you mess up you can record your response. But, if you choos trip record the original is gone, and you can not go back to it. So, if you use all of the tries (three total for each question) the last one you record is the one that counts.

I found these questions much harder than the actual evaluation interview. I know I had to re-record all of them at least once.

Good luck
