@rahulnaidu Some schools do accept GRE for MBA programs, but the number is very less. The reason is simple, GMAT is a standardized test aimed to capture the aptitude of management aspirants where as GRE captures the aptitude of students applying to graduate programs in general.

@tina90 You should really consider appearing for the GMAT exam and getting a good score. All the best B-schools consider this a good gauge for applicants and it is universally accepted. In the meantime, you need to do a lot of research before you choose the schools that suit your needs the most.

What is the specific industry you are looking at?
And why not take GMAT?
Many business schools may emphasize on a GMAT score and only applying with a GRE score me limit your options.

@ivyctor2010 This question has been haunting me for a while. Why would the B-Schools accept GRE if they prefer GMAT, in the first place? Could you throw some light on it? Thanks in advance.

@tina90 Details are too vague for anyone to tell you which uni to apply to. You need to know what your interests are and then look for colleges appropriately

Work Experience - 7 years (Working as an IT Manager)
Are you a people's manager, managing a team of developers/testers or are you a product manager? Your professional experience is the most important part of your profile.

Upfront from your brief background, you can look at UCLA Anderson, Indiana Kelley, Maryland Smith, Texas Mccombs et al. Michigan Ross, CMU Tepper and Berkeley Haas would be tough nuts to crack but worth an app.

@anandmv If you are looking at US unis then you might need to look for unis which accept 15 years of education. Lot would depend on your GMAT score and generally unis do not look for your high school grades. You might need to do well on GMAT to cover up your lower grade in bachelors

Is a transfer of school possible even before i join the program? as the admission deadlines are over i wont be apply to the schools at this region and hence transfer is the only option for me. IF a transfer is not possible now is there anyway i can get a transfer in the middle of my school year say after the first semester. Please enlighten me on the above in detail.Regards,Arul
Hi Arul,

Nice to hear from you again :).

As far as I know, b-schools do not allow transfers. You can check further by looking through the Admissions FAQ pages of the programs that you are talking about.

Namita, MBA Decoder
Which is better?
MBA from The University of Nottingham,UK
or...MIB from HULT ??

@mba-help I am looking at schools that have good alumni connections in these fields or schools where I can take up some Architectural or real estate courses along with my MBA.

I am looking at doing an 1 year or 2 year programme in schools that are well aware of the real estate scene so that it gets easier for me to be placed in good internships and later on placements.

There are some custom made courses which combine a M.Arch and MBA together but these are 3-5 year courses which I cannot afford.

If anyone is looking for information like this, please chk the below links. All these schools here have a dual M.Arch+MBA.

Hello, I am an Architect from India and have passed out in 2009. In 3 years I have worked in a variety of scenarios of small village based NGOs to corporate builder firms. It let me understand what €˜building €™ means to different sections of the society. I want to start my own construction company in future and think a management degree would give me the right break into the international scenario. I am looking to do an MBA for 2 reasons, it would give me an exposure into the industry on an international level and I would like to understand more on the business end of construction companies by working in them post MBA. 1. Which do you think are the schools that I can aim for? 2. Also, are there any International courses that I can take up beyond MBAs..?
Are you looking at MBAs with concentrations in Real Estate?

Hi,

Its a good thing that you are thinking early about next year's application cycle. You can use this time to find out further about b-schools and what they will offer you in order to reach your career goals.

There is no ready answer to your questions, and the best b-school list can be generated by you. You can start out by looking at data from some known ranking such as Businessweek, US News and Financial Times.
