What is a good GPA for a mba graduate  [#permalink]

I want to know what goal i should set for my mba once it is completed to be competitive with other mba graduates.
I am in my 8th course in a 10 course program and my gpa is dropping fast. I had a 3.94 at the end of the 6th course, but a B dropped me down to a 3.82. Now the 8th course has the same instructor and I have a b+ in the course after receiving a 73% on my last assignment.
So what do i need to keep my gpa above to be competitive? If it gets to low should i just drop it off my resume? I want to beat my undergrad gpa (3.62) but at this rate that might not be possible

Nobody really cares about your BSchool GPA. I don't think you even put it anywhere really.... Many schools actually have a non-disclosure policy where they will not release your grades.
MBA is different from undergrad.... the only use I can think of for MBA GPA is a minimum requirement to be eligible for a scholarship.

Per bb's response, it's not terribly important at most programs, given grade non-disclosure policies. However, depending on what school you are at, it may matter. W

- Where are you completing your MBA?
- What are your post-MBA goals?

I am attending NorthCentral University, which has open admission for applicants with a 3.0 from undergrad and is probably considered a diploma mill. My plans post mba are unclear. I just landed a volunteer paralegal job and i will be going for a masters in legal studies when my mba is complete in October. I heard that the jd/mba is valuable so i hope the mls/mba will be as well. I have already had the opportunity to use some of the knowledge i gained in my mba in my volunteer position. I have considered the possibility of teaching in the future, but i don't want to tackle a phd because i think it would be too challenging. I want to keep my options open and apply for a broad scope of positions.

Non-disclosure policy is an important thing. I don't think that the policy of non-disclosure policy is the same important thing in the school as in the company.
