Hello Everyone

Need ur help
plz treat this very important as i need to decide on this before Jan15th

I am Thomas Albert from India. Am looking forward to enroll for MBA 2013 Fall intake.
Am having 5 years of quality work experience. Am planning to do full time MS Finance program from a reputed university in US in 2012.
How does Adcom evaluate my profile if i apply to MBA program for 2013 intake soon after the completion of MS Finance program?
Does this strengthen my application or weaken my chances to get in as my 5 years of work experience will be prior to MS Finance that am planning to do.

My priority is in doing MBA. So I dont want to compromise on MBA at any cost.
I wish to do MS in Finance and later get specilisation in MBA in Strategic Management or General Mangaement.

If doing MS now will make my chances for getting into MBA later as my work ex is prior to MS Finance and i will hold no work ex after MS, then am ready to wait for one more year and apply to MBA program.

This is my profile

GMAT - 750
TOEFL - 110
Undergraduation - Bachelors in Business Management (BBM) from a reputed college in Bangalore, India.
Undergrad score - 57% (not sure how it looks in GPA)
Work Ex - 5 years in Retailing and Importing.

Preferred Universities

Duke
Texas A&M
Brigham
University Of Rochester


Thanks to all in Advance

My recommendation would be to go ahead and apply for MBA programs. The MS Finance will not score you many extra points--even an extra year of WE would likely help you more than the MS Finance, which could risk making you look like you didn't know what you were doing. Since you can focus on finance within the MBA program, there would be no need for you to get the MS in Finance first. You have a great GMAT and 5 years WE, I would definitely recommend going straight to the MBA degree.
