Hello,

I am applying for Professional MBA (part time) in schools with 610 GMAT average such as Bauer College.

I am a male, late thirties and coming from Spain. My background is Computer Engineering.

Work experience: 10+ years in one of the majors in O&G services.
    First years as software developer/manager.
    Last 4 years as a Product Manager. Noticeable achievements delivering products supporting multi million dollar business

GPA converted to B

First attempt GMAT 550. Q37 V29. IR 4 (Guessed 4 last verbal questions)
(GMAT Prep scores of 640, with Verbal around 40)

Recommenders:
    Current direct manager who is responsible for the portfolio of products
    Former manager who is now responsible for managing partnership between two companies leading in O&G and IT services

Goal to acquire critical business and management skills to grow as a Senior Product Manager and, eventually, have my own business with a portfolio of software products. Current Product Management knowledge learnt on the job.

Is this a solid application?
Should I retake the GMAT to get it above 600?

Thanks in advanced.

Hello J,


Well it's a tough question you ask, because everything is relative. Meaning: How high do you want to target? Where do you want to study? (Europe or US?) When you write about your goals, are these your goals in your current company, or are you planning on moving on?

And are you aiming for regular FT MBA programs or also looking into EMBA programs?

Overall, a 600 is relatively low, though, so if you think you can hit a 650 at least, with a bit more studying it's most probably worth a retake.

Best,

Thanks Jon,

I want to study in Houston, my goal is to move from the Oil & Gas industry to the tech industry and I am looking into a Professional program, not EMBA.

What do you mean with how high I want to target?

I have been invited to admission interview at Bauer Collage (University of Houston). Is that increasing my chances?

I also schedule to retake the GMAT, how close to the Bauer 610 average should I get?

Thanks

Hey J,
Well the higher the better as always :) And yes it will increase your chances. It could even win you some scholarship money if you can get that 650.
If you've already been invited to an interview, that's a good sign though.

Best,
