Haas PT vs. UCLA FEMBA vs. USC Part Time

Post Mon Feb 20, 2017 2:39 pm
I'm hoping to go to Berkeley Part time but unsure of because of my GMAT score. Any advice would be great!

Background: Work experience:
-first two years did software sales at a fortune 250 company; hit all of my targets and goals, was promoted 2 times. Acted a mentor to 3 sales development reps.
-started working at Oracle doing enterprise sales and project management consulting. Built a sales development program in the first 4 months that trained 60+ incoming college graduated on key sales skills. Hit my full year target in the first 4 months. I was at Oracle for 10 months and had no plans on leaving, but a client that I did a project for liked me so much that they offered a 60% pay increase and a chance to do full time consulting and I couldn’t turn that down. I’ve been at that consulting company for two years (think deloitte, IBM, E&Y) doing finance & IT business analytics and strategy consulting. Got one promotion from senior consultant to manager. Will have 2 letters of recommendations from Partners.

Extra curriculars: volunteer at childrens hospital about once a month for about a year. Have helped raise over $5,000 in money. Played division 1 rugby in college (captain 1 year) and continue to play division 1.

Undergrad school/major: Top 50 undergrad state school. Pre-med concentration/Cellular Biology major. 3.43 GPA. Worked 20 hours a week for all four years. GPA trended upwards each year.

-Born in Europe. First generation college student; completely paid for college myself.

GMAT: 640(Q45 V32). Through the enhanced score report, I got the equivalent of a 40 on sentence correction and critical thinking but bombed reading comprehension. Going to take it again in a month.

MBA Info Goal of MBA: to lead the data analytics for a bulge bracket bank.

Target schools: Haas EWMBA, UCLA Anderson FEMBA, USC Part Time

Hey dude,
Your profile seems quite solid, and your GMAT score although not stellar could be enough even for Berkley. Things tend to get relatively flexible when it comes to GMATs for PT programs, and of you make an excellent application, a lower GMAT score can be forgiven. so if you're asking me: go for it!

Best,
Jon Frank

I would echo Jon's assessment here. We've worked with folks in that vicinity successful - read here.

The goals bit however should be thought through well. A PTMBA does not by itself lead to a career/sector/employer change.

Cheers,
