Hello,

Greetings...

I have completed my MBA from India, having 33 months of work experience, in which 21 months worked with Bank. WES :MBA-HR GPA-4 and BSC GPA-3.04, GMAT :410-Quant:30 and Verbal :17, TOEFL : 10th Jan 2015.

Plz help me to decide what to do further in USA for a bright future with a good job. Is my MBA-HR degree is valid in USA? Or I have to do the MBA again? Or should I go for MS? I am in a big confusion.

Well for an MBA from US you should try to improve your GMAT scores or apply for an MS in HR. In order to get a good job it is always advisable to get a degree from that country as it helps you to build a base and also network .

It sounds like you could use some guidance from a career counselor, to give you some clarity about your goals.

There are some great business schools, which offer MBA programs in Virginia, like Darden, W&M - Mason, Pamplin, etc., but my feeling is that these programs are a bit out of reach for you, given your work experience and GMAT score. For instance, in Mason's MBA program, students usually have about four years of work experience and average GMAT scores of 620 or so. Get your GMAT score up to 700 and that may offset your lower-than-average work experience, and you may have a chance.

There might be other programs that are closer to being within your reach, such as the MBA from Virginia Commonwealth. But you'd still need a substantial bump on your GMAT score to be competitive.

A master's in management program might be more appropriate... I believe that VCU offers a range of MS-level business programs, maybe start there.

I'm sure that if you googled career counselor or career counseling, you can find somebody to help guide you.

Job prospects will differ post-MBAs and MS degrees in a number of ways. Since MBAs are aimed at people with at least a couple of years of work experience, and while other master's programs are aimed at people with little to no work experience, MBA grads will usually expect higher salaries and more managerial-style positions. Although this of course depends on a number of things, including what school you do the program at and its reputation.

As for what you should specialize in, that's up to you.
