PhD after MBA (for year 2020) [#permalink]

New post 02 Apr 2015, 03:28
I am an Engineer with two years work experience. I have good academic scores as of now. I am starting my MBA in Marketing (2015-17) from IMT Ghaziabad, India.
I wish to do PhD in future after two years more of work experience after completing my MBA. I would need a good GMAT score to get into some of the top universities around the globe.

1) I wish to know whether it is appropriate to take the GMAT now (when I am fresh with all the quant and verbal concepts) and apply using that score in year 2020 (given GMAT is valid for 5 years, isn't it?)

2) Also, what all things should I take care of during my MBA and in job so as to be a competitive PhD applicant.

3) Are Indian universities like ISB good for PhD? What other Indian universities are good for PhD?

4) How much tuition fees one can expect while doing Phd (for good bschool in US, Europe and Singapore)?

GMAT is valid for 5 years, so if you are certain you will apply in 2020, then it may make sense to take it now.

By the way, why do you want to do an MBA before you do the PhD? Your post-MBA work experience will not have any (positive) impact on your PhD admission prospects.

Try to work with some professors as a research assistant, and get your name in published papers.

The research world is quite different from the corporate world. There is no answer to which schools are good for PhD. You need to ask which schools are generating great research in my target discipline.

Most US and European schools will waive the tuition, and provide a small stipend for the duration of the PhD.

Why do you say that post MBA experience is not positive for the application?
