HELP: USA-Business Schools-Marketing-Consumer Goods Industry

Post Sat Aug 27, 2016 12:50 am
Hi,

Seeking business schools in USA which have a good reputation for marketing, strategy and entrepreneurship.
Interested in the consumer goods industry and the retail industry.

My Profile Summary:
Indian
28 years old
B.com Graduation from Mumbai University (Overall Percentage of 3 years: 62%) and 1 year diploma in Advertising and Marketing.
3+ years work experience in advertising and marketing with 1 year in a managerial position handling a team of 3 members.
GMAT Score: 620 (Not planning to re-take GMAT)

I am seeking answers to the following questions:

1. Based on my requirements which location/region in US should I focus on while shortlisting my business schools?

2. Business schools that will fall in the Reach or Safe Category on my business school shortlist?
(Don't want the names of the top ones like Duke, Kellogg, Emory, Ross etc, already have that list.)

Any help would great.
Thanks.

Well let me say this as I haven't been on this forum in quite some time, but I'm seeing that it may still need my help. The "industries" that you've listed for schools that have a good reputation for marketing, strategy and entrepreneurship - but also in consumer goods & retail... shows me that you really haven't done the full necessary research beyond looking at the top schools list.

I think you need to hone in on what it is exactly that you want to do post-mba. Then you can pose some additional probing questions on here. That's how I found this site to be the most useful.

Hi there,
You have a good working experience but the GMAT score is not enough to get in the top business schools. Since you don’t consider to re-take GMAT, we would recommend you to focus on Wisconsin, Warrington and Flagler.

If you need further assessment, please don’t hesitate to sign up for a FREE consultation. We can help you to find the best program that suits your expectations and needs together.

Best,
