Masters Programs for Freshers

Post Mon May 07, 2012 10:00 am
Hi,

I wish to get some information about programs that I can apply to as a fresher.
I am aware that to do an MBA, one needs work experience of atleast 3 years, but I have heard of programs like MiM and MEM that accept applicants with 0-2 years of Work Experience. Can you list some more of such kind of programs?
Where can I find more information, related to list of schools that offer these, their rankings and so on?
What do you think about such programs?

The main reason why I want to pursue a Masters degree so early is mainly to improve Job opptortunities for myself.

My GMAT score is 720
Here in India, we dont have GPA system, but I am pretty sure that mine would lie in the "Low GPA" category.
Would it be possible to get into top schools that offer MIM/MEM/(any other programs for freshers) despite the low GPA? If yes, how so?


I am keenly waiting for your reply.
Thanks in advance.

Hello there,
Yep. First of all you have MiM programs as you stated. Most of these are in Europe, in the renowned schools there. (LBS having the most famous program). In the US you have programs such as HBS 2+2 and Yale Silver Scholars. Yet, the programs are hard to get into, esp. if you don't have a great GPA, the reason being is that that is one of the few things they have to evaluate you upon, as you have not yet entered the workforce.
