Re: Looking for guidance regarding Masters/MBA choices

Hi, We have written a blog on when you should consider an MBA vs a Masters degree - have a read here. http://www.oneclickprep.com/is-it-an-mba/ It is a very important question and we think you have to look inwards to determine how keen you are to pursue breadth vs depth in your career - not backward...


Hi Sairam,
Absolutely you can (as long as you have a valid passport).

Hi Adithya, Good question. Having decided where you want to work drives your decision to do an MBA quite significantly and as such, I think you have thought well. Given your background, I would say apply early (Round 1) to the highest ranked colleges you can - ISB and IIM being obvious choices. If y...

Hi Anyrban, In addition to the above points, I think it is also critical to bring in some other aspects of your profile, i.e. how will the MBA help you in your dreams of being an entrepreneur? Particularly important is because owning your own business often requires you to break the very boundaries ...

Hi, I would say that you have good chance of getting admit from all the schools you mentioned. There are nuances of each school which we need to carefully address but otherwise, your profile is quite stellar. Your essays and reasons for doing an MBA (given your success in the current job) are going ...

Hi Abhijit, Your score is quite decent. Start with where you would like to stay long term - do you want to work for a few years and then go back to India? Work authorisation is as important a point as reputation of college and future career prospects. Think hard about what drives you. In the long te...

Absolutely, retake the GMAT again. Given your background, I don't think getting a score around 700 is too hard for you, particularly with about 4-6 weeks preparation. Apart from the strategy consulting and top 40 MBA career ambition, it is also important to address your CGPA. You have a strong backg...

Hi, This is a fantastic question. In terms of the goals and relating it back to the MBA, it is extremely important to overlay that with the current competencies and skills the candidate has. I would start with the long term goal and work backwards from that. At every stage we would need to demonstra...


Hi, In that event, absolutely go for it. Given that you already scored 700, you might need to fine tune your strategies a bit. Also, preparing for GMAT and your application at the same time may work to your benefit - it will provide a bit of variety in your preparation and if nothing, your essays wi...


Hi, You have got enough strong points in your career - I wouldn't necessarily worry too much about GMAT. Having said that, high GMAT definitely helps, particularly in terms of your scholarship chances. Which schools are you targeting? Also, a pre MBA and similar post MBA career choice has to be well...

Hi, I don't think your GPA will increase because it is primarily driven by your undergraduate degree. Any other course will add value only if you can justify why you took the course (as opposed to just increasing your GPA). Even with a low GPA (something you can't control), you can apply because the...

Hi, You have quite an interesting background and it looks like you will be fairly competitive at the schools you mentioned. The trick will be to weave a story which will make you appear attractive rather than raise more questions - I think it is quite easily doable. In terms of your GMAT, it is with...

Hi, When the schools say GPA they are gently talking about your undergraduate degree. Your GPA depends on your relative score and so a very rough starting point is your percentile. It is 100% true that schools will use their own conversion table but your own satistfaction check your percentile and s...
