Hi,

I need help in following areas-
Profile evaluation
Finding a good b-school
Admission consultant

Background:
Country - India
Qualification - Chartered Accountant
GPA - TY B.Com scored 91%
Work experience - Full time 20 months, Internship 3 years (20 months pre-graduation & 16 months post-graduation) - all in Mumbai, India. No international exposure.
GMAT Score - 620 (Q49, V26, IR7, AWA4.5) [appeared for GMAT again but scored only 600 due to some distractions at the test center and hence canceled the score. Also, don't want to re-take, want to apply with the given score.]

I want to pursue full-time MBA (2 year/1 year). I am considering either US/Canada, mainly Canada (Singapore - last option). Also, only if I do not get into some good MBA b-school, I will consider Masters in Finance (again last option).

Need help in finding a good b-school with the given score and Work-ex.
Will be happy to provide any further details.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for sharing your profile. You mentioned wanting to attend a "good" program, your MBA may prove a bit of a problem. Any consideration to retaking the GMAT?

I saw that you are not intending to retake the exam, but you may want to reconsider that decision. The main reason is that if your main objective is to go abroad and get employed and get a sponsored for a visa, there is a clear correlation between school ranking and your ability to find a job. A 620 GMAT is quite low. And even more so for an Indian candidate.

That plus the fact that you have not that much experience, makes it make sense for you to retake. Here are two articles that might elucidate what you will be up against:
http://admissionado.com/mba/3-tips-for- ... n=mba_blog
http://admissionado.com/mba/to-retake-o ... n=mba_blog

If you still don't want to retake, then yes, you can still apply to plenty of schools out there be they MBAs or MFAs, but you want to be sure to compose a school list that will give you the best possible chances of gainful employment.

Best,
JF

Thank you for the valuable information JonAdmissionado. I will keep in mind about the employment chances while selecting the schools.

VeritasPrepDozie - as a career, I want to get into managerial kind of jobs for first few years and later may think of entrepreneurship. Want to advance my career in finance (along with management skills). Study for not more than 2 years in an English speaking country which offers work visa as well so that I can recover the cost of study by working in the same country and gradually settle there.
