    Hello,
    An MBA is specifically designed to polish the Managerial skills in different steam and sections/departments. In simple words, the skills you acquire not from books and theory, but from an exposure to the outer world.

    The MBA programs are designed to boost the managerial skills as per the background of the applicant. In simple words, the course is structured for particular group of candidates and today that is why we have a wide range of specialization in the MBA, Sales, Human Resource, Supply Chain Management, Events Management and so on.

    Work experience depicts a sense of maturity, professional skills that help one to focus and understand the concepts offered in the program. Considering an MBA program as a fresher it might not be as beneficial as applying with some relevant work experience in hand.

    The bottom line is analyze why are you opting for an MBA. Understand what the degree has to offer and above all does it actually help you meet your career goals.

    The best option I can suggest is to opt for program and schools that blend with your profile and help you meet your career goals. A simple step can be to simply fill out the School Finder Form-MBA and our counseling team will get back to you with further guidance.

    You may also contact our counselor Amit Wadhwa, +91-9818566611, or mail at amit.wadhwa@learhub.com for further guidance.

    Take care!

    Hi,

    You can definitely get admission offers. Which colleges are you planning on applying to? Also, your work ex will come in handy - since it's a background that is different from the usual that students have.

    Good luck!

    hi gagz,

    you definitely have good chances abroad…. what courses are you looking for? as in, do you want to pursue a master's in a domain or want to go for an mba abroad?

    just search for the courses of your interest on LearnHub's Directory

    also, i would suggest contacting Amit - LearnHub's Student Counselor - he can help you choose the best colleges/courses and also apply to the same!

    Dear tushinform,

    Your profile is quite good enough to get into the decent B-Schools abroad. First come out with a list of B-Schools that you intend to pursue your MBA and as I said for most of the decent B-Schools your profile will definitely fit in. I have my own doubts about your GMAT score. Considering your work experience, GPA and extra curricular activities if you can score 700+ your chances of getting into the top B-Schools would definitely improve a lot.

    Anyway, please list down the B-Schools where you intend to pursue your MBA based upon which you can decide on retaking the test.

    All the best

    HI!. I need some inputs about my GMAT score and further course of action from here based on my profile. To begin with. I have a bachelors in Civil Engineering from a reputed university in India (among top 20) and a GPA of 3.1 and recently i have scored 660 in my GMAT. I have a 2.5 years work-ex as on date with a 1.5 years international work ex in Dubai as a Sales Engineer. I have participated in a lot of extra curricular activities during my graduation. My aim is to do an MBA and i want to make a move into consulting and strategy…possibly into finance.

    There are many MBA courses that involve IT. Some MBA's will have a technological concentration, while some schools offer a specialized Information Technology Management MBA. You should check out the MBA School Finder and our Directory to search for such programs.
