Gap Year - Should I Dream of Doing MBA? [#permalink]

Hi Experts,

Good day to you..!!

I have been preparing for GMAT for the past 2 Months and targeting 720-730 score in GMAT. Recently, I read somewhere that if we have Gap in education there is very less chance of getting selected for MBA Programmes in top B-Schools. I have 2 Years of Gap after doing my 12th Class due to Personal Reason.

Should I still dream of doing MBA for top B School and stop preparing for GMAT :( or there is any hope for me?

Please advise.

Hi Rahul,

Generally for MBA admissions, people don’t care about high school - neither scores nor where you did it from. Your undergrad scores and school matter.
Since you can ignore high school info, the 2 year gap between high school and undergrad will not show up. Your professional history will start from the time you started undergrad.
So please go ahead and continue to prepare for GMAT.

Just FYI, I have a 1 year gap between my high school and undergrad, and have not faced any issues.

Hi stoiczoan,

Thanks for your quick reply and encouragement. I have good track record from my Undergrad - Scored 3rd Position from my University in Graduation. Have total of 6.5 Years of Experience (3.5 Years at Onsite & Still at Onsite).

1. Working as a Consultant for one of the Largest Power provider in Asia.
2. Worked as a Business Analyst, Business Development and participated in many International Conferences (the recent Conference which Included PM of India & PM of Malaysia).
3. Leading a project which involves largest electricity provider in Vietnam (Covering 16,000km of Transmission Lines).
4. Lead a Project (PoC) in IoT (Internet of Things) for largest power provider in Asia.
5. Critical role in many other projects.
6. One of the Strategist for my Company in SEA (South East Asia Region).

I am Targeting Top 10 B-Schools and aim to score 730-740 in GMAT. Do you think my profile is worth giving a try in Top-10 B Schools provided I get 730-70 in GMAT.

Thanks in advance in anticipation of your reply.

What are your post-MBA goals?
I’m assuming you are an engineer? Which university did you study in? (Is it a Top college)
