I am a working professional with industry experience of 4 years. I have done my bachelors in engineering electronics and telecommunication. Post that I have done a certificate course in digital designing. I now want to do an MBA and am considering colleges like NUS, ISB, S PJain (both Mumbai and the global one), Hult etc. So a few MBA colleges are offering a one year MBA and a few are offering a 2 year MBA. Which would be a better option?
My profile is : 4+ exp in IT (I am not highly satisfied with my current job)
Avg Acads , good in extra CC activities that is it .
My first preference in NUS(2 year program) and Nanyang(12 month) Singapore and second is Schulich(20 months) , Rotman(20 months) , Ivey (12 months), Queens(12months) and University of Alberta all in Canada
Last back up option is SP JAIN Global MBA (12 months)
I will be honest I want career change as I am not satisfied with IT job in India so looking for the change and I am looking to switch to Finance or Investment Banking because of my interest in SAP FI .
As my family is not so financially equipped for my MBA I have to take the loan so I am specifically looking for College with better ROI .
Please help me decide if my approach is any where wrong .
Personally, to me all those percentage/scores are useless and does not really portray a person fairly. Academic life and professional life can be significantly different. One does not guarantee success in another one!! But then again, I am not a selector in any business school and my thoughts are my personal only.
Most of the business schools love to claim that they conduct a 'HOLISTIC' review, 360 degree assessment and blah blah!! Unfortunately most of the schools does not have the band-width to do that kind of assessment and most follows the herd mentality ... they select primarily based on GMAT score and GPA. They have unwritten rules and QUOTA to follow for nationalities, industry sectors, gender....
Having said that, few schools try to really pick up FEW outstanding people (as showcase) irrespective of their scores or GPA. To be fair to the schools, it is a risk to the school. There is a 50-50 chance of them being right with their selection. If they have band width, caliber, experience, they should be able to select the right candidate more frequently but I do not have an extremely high regards for the ad-com. In many a schools the clerks does the screening!!
So bottomline is, it is a gamble. Your same application will be a stellar is one school and will directly go to the dust bin in another. You can play the gamble if you have money as admission fees are not cheap. If you have money, there is no harm in trying your luck.
Many people engage professional writers to package themselves and sell to schools as commodity. It is up to you whether you like that approach or not.
Cranfield and Warwick are on my list.
LBS, Said and Judge still questionable as their application fees at GBP 175, 150 and 125 is not encouraging, specially when the schools are flooded with Indian and Chinese students.
Will check CASS later.
