Should I accept the offer from UTS? [#permalink]

Hi
I am a 21 yr old male from India. I applied to UTS( University of Technology, Sydney) for Masters in Management program. I received the offer letter from the same university and i am confused on whether i should accept the offer or try for a better University. I applied to other non-GMAT requiring schools but i got rejected because my Grad percentage (score) is too low.

Reason for applying to UTS- Good reputation, good Program structure, and doesn't require GMAT.

Initially i was preparing for GMAT and was getting around 650 in mock tests. I got sick before 15days of my exam and my exam results got affected. GMAT- 580

My profile:

Education:
Bsc from Ravenshaw University-59%, First class honors

Work ex:
Working as a HR executive in a private recruitment firm for 7 months.

Extracurricular Activities

• Sports captain of my house at school in 12th class
• Class representative of science society- Represented students of the science stream in the annual budget meeting for various events.
• Organized a national level seminar on ‘Nanotechnology’.
• Organized a blood donation camp. It was the most successful in the entire city with over 200 blood donors.
• Organized science fest and raised additional 1 lakh rupees for the event.
• Organized an intra university athletic meet, cricket tournament and football tournament.
• Member of student’s union
• Regional level cricket player.
• Member of the university cricket team.

Achievements

• Awarded best bowler in a Intra school cricket competition in 2009
• Received a credit certificate in Mathematics from University of new south wales education assessment in 2011.
• Received scholar badge in school which is awarded to meritorious students for two consecutive years. 2010-2012
• Took part in international mathematics Olympiad and got a school rank of 10 in 2012
• Won intra school kho-kho tournament in the school in 2012
• Won intra school cricket tournament in 2013.
• Won 1500m athletic event in an intra school competition in 2013
• Won 800m athletic event in an intra university tournament in 2015

My Questions:

1. Is it worth to study at UTS in terms of quality of education, Job prospects( in Australia), ROI?
2. Should i try for a better university ( which will require GMAT) since i have got 2 months of time (that i am gonna utilize to pursue my interest i.e. Ethical Hacking) before the acceptance deadline ends.

I am no expert in masters degrees but for MBA and management positions, you are still young, and it would hamper your recruiting to have few results on your resume.

Australia is notorious for hard to get PR cards and employers that favor work experience over degrees. Sorry, not looking too good.

Your work experience too low. It might really hamper your chances of getting a job in Australia. But if you are planning to return to India after the degree you can pursue it very well.

But I would suggest you focus on your work experience. You need minimum 3-4 years for an MBA or any master degree in management.

In India, job opportunities for students who have completed bachelors in science are very low. Typically, they opt for a Masters in science in the future. Thats why i decided to kick start my career by pursuing a Masters in Management which requires little or no work experience. Currently, UTS ranks 69th in Graduate employability , according to Qs. I want to work as a consultant in the same country for 2 to 3 years. I graduated in June 2017 and then worked for 7 months in a recruitment firm as a HR executive. If i decide to write GMAT again to try for European programs, I will be left with a gap of 2years as the next available intake would be Sep 19. I dont know if that would be a problem for my future. I am confused whether I should accept the offer or re write GMAT so that i could improve my score and apply to european Mim programs. Please help.
