Hello All,
This question is to the experts.
However, if anyone wish to chime in, please feel free to do so.

It is already Septemeber. Is it advisable to take GMAT in the month of December and send the scores to colleges in the month of December (during Round II) to seek admission in August 2016.

OR

Consider joining in January 2017 and take the test sometime in March 2016.
Thanks again!

Regards,
Shirin

Hi Shirin,

Most of the US B-Schools start their session in Aug/Sep.
If you are planning to join in 2016, then it would be good if you give you GMAT is December start. This will give you some time (although not much) to apply in the R2
If you are planning to apply for the 2017 intake, then you have plenty of time.

It totally depends on you when you want to join the School. You can send the scores to the schools any time you want.

Hi Sir,
Thank you for responding to my post.
I have one more question.
I have close to 9-10 years experience. (I am in mid 30s)

Considering my age, is this the right time to take a break in my career and pursue MBA with a gap of two-years?
What are the chances that I would get placement in the USA post my MBA in USA (Also, shelling out close to 30-40 lakhs)?

My Motivation to do MBA is to MBA would give me a plethora of opportunities.

I work for an IT industry. There are lot of processes that I have implemented in all companies that I have worked so far. I have also contributed towards innovation and filed some patents. I do identify gaps in the functioning of a team in building products. By doing an MBA I intend to contribute towards filling that gap which my current role restricts me from bringing that change (for a variety of reasons, say my job role at the root level could be one reason).

Please send a PM as I am new to this site.
Thanks again!

Regards,
Shirin

Hi Shirin, With 9 -10 years of experience, first you should consider that do you want to join a Full time 2 year program or an executive 1 year program.
Placement in the US will depend on the companies and if they are ready to sponsor a VISA for you.

Hello:
Thank you for answering my question.
So, for someone with 10 -12 years experience, is it not advisable to pursue a 2 year MBA?
I believe a one-year MBA too short a span to really get to a real-time experience.
Thanks again.

shirin

Shirin,

It is not about advisable of not advisable. generally people gather good amount of experience in 10 - 12 years.
So they go for a 1 year program. However if you feel that a 2 year MBA is more suited for you, then go for it.

The general class profiles of most schools varies from 2 - 12/13 years. So you are very much in the game.

All the best!
