MBA vs. Work in UK


p1985

Dear all - Looking for some advice from folks out here

I am an Indian Male, worked with a Fortune 500 US MNC in various functions such as supply chain and manufacturing( with an top tier indian MBA)... Currently, i have a UK T2 ICT dependent work( 5 years) visa but i have not landed up at a good job in UK (been about a month now)..

I had given my GMAT last year and ended up with 670.. and TOEFL 110.. wanted to apply to schools in US but didnt materialise..

With my current work situation not good, does it make sense to apply to a B school ( Imperial or RSM or Judge or Warwick) and then search for a decent mid level managerial job...
At the same time, does it make sense for me to take a huge financial risk/loan of 40-50K , struggle with loan payoffs or should i be patient and continue to focus on getting a job in UK( rather than taking a complicated MBA - Work route)

Awaiting your advice... Thanks for your answers.

It depends. What are your career goals? If the kind of job that you would be looking for post-MBA would give you a decent salary increase, then the 40-50k of investment would probably be worth it, over the longterm.

If you were looking at typical MBA career paths (finance, consulting) then this would most certainly be a decent investment.

Judge would be a good choice overall but given your profile I think you'd want to boost your GMAT score for better chances.

However, I don't know about the viability of RSM, unless you can speak Dutch...

Thanks @mba hipster
How would you rate Imperial and career options over long term.( 5years+)
And with my profile and GMAT score( 2nd attempt, doubt if i can improve) - do you think i stand a fair chance of admission

Career options will depend on your goals - which industry you want to go into, etc.

I'd say you have a fair chance of admission, but keep in mind that you're in a highly competitive applicant group with a lot of people who have really high GMAT scores - so you'll probably need a way to set yourself apart from the pack.
