You'll still be eligible, however just having the MSc tag won't improve your chances imo. You need to be able to explain the value of why you took that MSc and it needs to show some sort of career progression too. Doing a Masters for the sake of it doesn't play well. Is there a career reason why you'd like to do the MSc?

Hi snamehra,

Yes, you will be eligible to apply to Harvard. However, your essays will need to portray how much of a value add the MSc was and your need for an MBA still, among other very important factors such as your professional achievements.

All the best!

Hi Snamehra - In considering your career objective (and the MSc plans), you might want to consider that spots for finance people at HBS is more limited than potentially for other fields and endeavors. We have certainly had MSc grads get admitted to HBS, but (beyond how it plays in your career) you need to show how it indicates your potential to make a real difference in the world in the future. Best -

Hey guys, so I am thinking of applying to HBS 2+2 and Stanford MBA deferred admission. Would like to know what you think of my chances of getting to the interview stage/ getting an offer

I am from Montreal, Canada (23 year old white male)
Undergrad: Non-target US university (Economics & Finance)
GPA: 3.96/4.0 (top 1%)
Masters: Masters in Management at London Business School (LBS)
GMAT: 710 (49Q, 38V, 8IR, 5.0 AWA)
Work Experience: Investment banking analyst (M&A, ECM, DCM) in a top Canadian Bank (will start in July 2018)
Leadership: Captain of my NCAA tennis team in Florida, MVP for 2 years
EC: Professional tennis player for 7 years, ranked 668 in the world (played in over 40 different countries), represented Canada in the Junior Olympics in Singapore
Sponsorship from Adidas and Babolat
Post-MBA Goal: Venture Capital or Private Equity in a top US fund

In my essay, I plan to leverage my tennis experience and discuss everything I have learned from it (leadership, dedication, performing under pressure, time management, problem solving, interpersonal skills).

Any tips would be greatly appreciated, you can PM me :)

Thanks in advance!
