As cliched as it sounds... all I can say is... get some work exp... find out if you really wanna do an MBA... coz now you sound really young and unfocussed

If you go ahead with this... since you don't have work exp.. after the Taiwanese MBA... you may end up coming back to India and working in a BPO in a position where anyone in the BPO industry with 3-4 yrs experience is... that's porbably not what you want... so just don't rush into an international(?) MBA right now... try the IIMs... and if that doesn't happen try GMAT after a few yrs work exp

hi junta,
i really need help of all the trainees.
as mine situation is a bit arbit one!!
well, i am doing b.a(chinese) in final year.(no work exp.)
and there is a scholarship of taiwan govt. to study mba anywhere in taiwan.
now the best university in taiwan is national taiwan university (as i have heard).
also, i am quite sure that i can get that scholarship.so it is expected that i will get a call from ntu(national taiwan university) for the mba.
but i really dont know that whether this degree will do any good for me in getting job in india or abroad.
i really dont know about the real reputation of ntu and its placement.
so,i plead to all trainees that plz tell me the truth about ntu and tell me that is it worth doing??????

Thaks abhi for the reply.,....

I think that u wud be better if u go for am MBA straightaway........but for that u have to get a new and much improved GMAT score........there is no fixed defination for a gud GMAt score but aiming for 700+ will be a gud idea considering the scools u have in mind.

Hello ppl,

Guys i am a bit confused.

I am working in my family-owned business firm thats into manufacturing and export, however i am interested in pursuing a MBA with specialisation in Finance. I currently have 2 yrs of work ex and by AEP 2007 i will complete close to 3.5 years.

My questions are: -

1. Will i be better off doing a MS. in financial management from a reputed University, then working in the relevant industry for some years and later pursue an MBA?

2. Will doing an MBA next year be too early for me ( as most univ have avg. work-ex of about 5-6 yrs)?

3. What is an acceptable GMAt score for a profile like mine if i want to get into a good B-School (NUS, MBS, RSM, Lancaster, etc..). I took up GMAT and got 540.. so want to set a decent target before i take a plunge again.

4. Would it be difficult to get a job post MBA in the Financial Sector(without prior experience), as i currently work in a totally different field.

My Profile: -
Decent Academics (GPA 3.4), good extra-curriculars and a university rank

Hi All,
I am a new member of pagalGuy.....planning for fall 07 applications.
My details:
GMAT 710
WorkEx 2.5 yrs in Infosys, Bangalore
Targetting Ross School and Darden in the 1st round.....

Hi Abhi,

I have not taken GMAT yet .... and no one know what is in store for me .... but I am replying to ur Queries on the basis of the knowledge I have gathered from people around ...

First of all my friend! Relax .....There is a bad day in everyone's life .... and there is something called the "worst" day!

You can do it! ... .... My friend the only "strategy" to fair well is Hard work .... I know you must have read that people scored 750+ with just two weeks of preps .... but even they put some hard work at some point in their life ... which helped them now!!!

So nothing can stop you pal! Go for it .... Take it again and you will come with flying colors


I have taken up GMaTand got a BAD score of 540.??:

Do i even stand a chance in any good University ( RSM, MBS, NUS, etc.) with such a score.


Frankly ... No My friend ... if you see the Average scores of these schools would be around 660 - 690 ....


MY Profile: -
Academics + Extra Curicullars: -

I have a decent Academic record ( GPA 3.4 - app. 84 - 85% in my BBM) and hols a rank from the Bangalore University. My extra - curicullars are good and have an all round achievement award from the College for the same.

Work Ex: -

I am curerently working in my family owned export venture and will complete 2.5 yrs by Oct 2006 (app. 3.5 yrs by the time i take up the course). Also have international experience due to the nature of the business...

Query: -

I would like to know if the above profile of mine can negate the effects of a low GMAT score on my application if i have fairl good essays. Is it worth applying with this score or will i be better off if i reappear for the GMAT... although..am extremely low on confidence after getting a low score inspite of preparing well...


As again my friend ..... I would say your Profile is Good .... but Not "excellent" .... Excellent would have been you started that export business and took it to next level in just 2.5 yrs .....
So, It cant shadow your GMAT Score ...... And in my opinion ... even "excellent" profiles need some GMAT Score for their Application to be considered!
Just put urself in place of Adcom and you will realise .... Adcom doesnt even read applications if GMAT scores are lower beyond a level .... they belive if he is good .... he can do better .... Your Profile is considered only after the GMAT score .... Though GMAT is not the only important thing .... It is a very important thing of your Application!
There is another reason which goes behind this ..... See the funda behind GMAT is .... its a preliminary test for any college to make sure you have necessary skills to take up a course like MBA .... which requires serious mathematical and Analytical skills ..... Once they are sure u have it good enuff they look at other parts of ur profile :)

abhi... nuthing can negate a 500 odd score.

retake the gmat. end of story.

Hello ppl,

reading all your posts has provided me wit good valuable info...
