Is it still not too late to apply for MBAs?

User: Dima2011 - 11 May 2011 08:43

Hey guys.
I am currently faced with a dilemma. I am a Level 3 BSc student, having my last exam tomorrow.
I am not sure what to do after, where to look for work or continue towards MBA. The only reason I still have not applied for MBA because I am borderline 2.2 and 2.1 around 58% at the moment.

There fore I was just wondering if anyone could kindly advise on where to apply for MBA this year with uncertainty, as I know almost everyone is looking for 2.1 or wait for my results and apply in the next year?

Any advise or best course of action would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Do not be in dilemma . You should decide your future plan for career. But I think you should insist on MBA. MBA is an best Emerging field .There a lot of usage of Management. You can also do PGDM
from a reputed institute. There are a lot of MBA Institute in Delhi .Choose any one out of them.

Hi Dima2011

Most MBA Programmes want students to have at least a couple of post degree business experience, so applying now would probably not be worthwhile. It shouldn't stop you looking around to see what the entrance criteria are though. Have a look at FindAnMBA to view MBA Programmes in your area of interest. You could always apply for an MSc or MA in Business instead.

Right now your academic scores don’t really look too good. You should make up for this by scoring well on your GMAT. Business schools also look at how badly you want to do your MBA, how well it fits in with your career goals, and prior work experience you carry. Sometimes a college may also consider the kind of contribution you can make to the student body. Your time and money will be well spent if you choose MBA programs from a business school that is well-ranked and has a good reputation for imparting both theory and practical business schools. The MBA program offered by Bentley University is great! They also have a part-time program that you can complete online, allowing you to work and study at the same time.

Seems like you have the same dillema as me. I focused on my career so my scores were lower. Lucky for me I found the Technion Start-uP MBA which I am excited about. They focus on your professional expeirence and not just grades. I really like that most Israeli startup owners came from the Technion too.
