Hi


I did my Graduation in Bachelors in Engineering(Computer Science and Engineering) in 1998.

Over 11 plus years of experience spanning across domains like investment banking, retail banking and Medical devices. Throughout technical experience into development and managing a team not more than 11 people.

I am a bit skeptical about is it worth taking the GMAT test and pursuing MBA from good school at this point of time.
If yes, then what stream would be more suitable than the HR?

I know merely good score would not suffice. There are few gaps in my career graph, which is bound to pull the weight of the SOP(Statement of purpose) down.

Need clarity on how do I fit the bill for a good B-school grad.

Could anyone shed some light on this..

Thanks

Welcome to GMAT Club!
Thanks for posting your question. At this stage with this much experience, you probably fit better for the EMBA or another type of an executive MBA. Most US Schools tend to recruit mostly applicants under 30 and it is very rare to be able to get in after 33 and impossible at 35. Most schools would recommend contacting their EMBA department instead.

EMBA is easier to get in but it usually costs more and tends to be Evening or Weekend based. There are some great programs.
I don't know how to answer your question about HR or Stream. Most people go to bschool to advance their career and get into more interesting and competitive industries such as consulting, brand management, or financial services.

At this stage, it may make the most sense for you to build your career in IT and leverage your experience and network in that field. It seems MBA plays less of a role in IT as you can get a very good salary as a programmer/IT Lead/etc

Good Luck!
BB

I think your background might fit in the consultancy.

Can you get 700+ point in the GMAT? If you can, go get it and apply to the Brand-school. The GMAT or GRE is the almost only way to the Brand-school name. Do not have doubt whether to take the exam or not.

Hi!
Thanks for looking into my post!
I really need great advice.
I took GMAT last week and got 460 (Q:42 and V: 13 and IR:3).
And i have taken TOEFL today.
i got this score after rigorous 2.5 months hard work and risking my job side wise. :(
It is not possible for me to take Gmat again.
I really need admission in 2018 January intake in US.
However, i have strong profile:
CGPA: 8.25 ECE Engg. from reputed college in India
Work Ex: 4.5 in Capital market IT firm
Designation: Consultant and Team lead
Even worked onshore in one of the top 100 investment bank in Europe for 3 months each in last two successive years.
Hobby of painting, writing poems and beauty & fashion blogs.
I am interested in normal MBA program like general management, HR or luxury management.
Please suggest me possible colleges, any other MBA program and procedure?
I really need assistance.
