Hi I'm currently not eligible for executive MBA because of my age

I am a partner in a firm that manufactures precast concrete blocks. Have been working there for the last 3 years. I did my graduation in civil engineering from swansea university, UK. I haven't really performed well academically after school. I just wanted to know whether I should be thinking about Executive MBA or not.

Hi Rishabh, Being a partner in a manufacturing unit is no mean feat. Dont worry about your undergrad too much at the moment. You can change the history, but you can definitely work towards improving your future. Prepare well for GMAT in next few months and try to score 680+. Develop other aspects of your profile and personality in next one year. Try to think through why you want to do an MBA and from where (location, universities). Please be ware that the cost of full time and Exec MBA programs is about the same at all top universities. Exec programs usually are of longer duration and are more suited for people with lot of work experience. So you really need to find your reasons for doing an MBA first and then take decision whether to go for full time or Exec MBA. Hope it helps. All the best.

Hi Rishabh, some of the best ways to enhance your profile are: get a promotion, lead or expand a team, mentor a junior, take up a project outside your core responsibilities, actively initiate a SR idea and implement it both and or outside work. I hope this helps. Thank you

In most businesses, refusing to employ someone with a criminal record violates federal hiring regulations. The LMN Corporation is not exempt from this regulation, yet an analysis of their hiring practices shows that they have not hired anyone with a criminal record for the past five years, even though they have had numerous opportunities to do so. Whether the corporation has actually violated the regulation, however, depends entirely on whether those in a position to hire were aware of the applicants’ criminal records.

Which of the following points out a weakness in the argument above?

@nehachartered The term Executive MBA is fairly loosely used in MBA parlance.

If you are talking about the one year full time residential MBA programs then ISB, IIM (A, B, C, L and I), XLRI, SP Jain, Great Lakes, etc... are your options of which only SP Jain is in Bombay. All these colleges accept the GMAT score.  

Besides these in Bombay you have many institutes like NMIMS, and Welingkar that offer management courses that range from 6 months to 3 years.

The key is to understand that all these courses are not in the same league.

It is ideal to cut out time, take a break from your work life and do an MBA, however, it this is not possible then try a part-time option.    

Wish You all the best.

I was going to post something about Reverse Innovation and then retreated since I wasn't sure if the readers of this forum heard of it before. So before I go on, here's the original article written by Tuck's very own Prof. Vijay Govindarajan (VG) and GE's CEO Jeff Immelt, back in 2009. The beauty of Tuck is that this is not simply something you read about. Since every faculty member at Tuck also teaches in the MBA program, you actually learn from VG about all of his research when you take his course.

This concept of Reverse Innovation has been hailed as a Big Idea by management journals and business leaders from around the world and has cemented VG's position as one of the top management Gurus in the world today. VG is simply an inspirational speaker and I hope you will have the opportunity to hear him speak either at Tuck or when he is in India next. Until then, here's the next best alternative:
