Hi everyone,

I've graduated from Business Administration department three years ago. After graduation, I started to work at one of the biggest retail company as a management trainee and delegated to work at several departments. After one year work experience I decided to change my sector to defense and I'm still working at Financial Analysis and Management department. I'm preparing reports and presentations for higher level managers.

Now I want to go to the USA and do master degree. I just want to expand my vision and career opportunities. My post career goal is to continue management consulting.

I search top 100 universities' programs in USA but I really couldn't decide which program would fit best for me? I mean most of the business schools are mainly focused on MBA but I've already taken those entry level courses when Im a freshman at BA. I dont want to repeat myself. Before I began to search, I though that MSc in Management would be suitable for me but I actually realized that it is designed for recent graduates with no work experience.

What will I do now? Every comment would much appreciated.

Thanks.

If you want to do management consulting it would be better to target a top rank MBA. I don't think you'll be disappointed of the MBA curriculum given that you have already done basic management courses. Almost all MBA programs are pretty flexible and provide you options to waive off some basic courses if you can prove you know the stuff. Moreover, MBA is much more than taking courses. Even if you repeat some courses, hopefully you'll get a different perspective and will enjoy the experience.

You can also consider 1Y MBA programs in US such as those offered by Emory, Cornell or Kellogg. They tend to skip some core courses and let you dig down in your chosen areas of specialization.

I would say think of an MBA in a much broader sense. What kind of a person do you want to become? What changes you want to make in yourself? Better communication/presentation skills? Better networking skills? leadership skills? etc. etc. I hope you get an idea. Think holistically, talk to people who worked in similar roles as yours and then did MBA/MSc program and see what they suggest. Most importantly, ask them the right questions and be open minded :-D

Best of luck !!!

Thank you very much. My advisors suggest me that I can do Masters of Engineering Management. After graduation I think I want to work at biggest technology firms like Microsoft or IBM. I mean I want to work as a supporter for higher management. By saying consulting I was trying to say that :) Thus maybe Technology Management or Engineering Management programs would fit me.

If you want to work for Microsoft/IBM/HP kinda companies another option you can look for is MIS i.e. Management of Information Systems. I have quite a few friends who did that from US and got placed in good tech. firms at good roles.
