GMAT Low Verbal Score


ralph84

Hi,
I already took the GMAT 3 times and my highest score was 580 (Q:46 V:25). Although 75% of my preparations was spent on the Verbal section, I couldn't get more than 25. My native langage is arabic and my background studies were in French. The only way to improve my score is to quit my job and focus on the GMAT i guess.
I have a Bachelor and a Master degree in Management Information System and 7 years of technical and managerial experience in IT solution Delivery.
I'm looking for an MBA program, preferably with a specialization in Information Technology but most importantly, with a high percentage of job opportunities. I'm open to any suggestion as long as the tuition and living fees are not insanely high.
The universities that i applied for so far are Ryerson (Toronto) HHL Leipzig (Germany) and RMIT (Melbourne).
Any other suggestions of a university that has a good ROI and where i could have a good chance to get accepted?

thank you,

Well, admit to B schools depends on entire profile and not just GMAT in isolation so try to put forth a strong application in terms of essays, recommendation & work profile.
Do you have a location preference?

Hi Mamit,
Again, Im open to any location that provides me with better opportunity to work there after graduation. I will choose later on the best school based on these criteras: mba ranking, tuition and cost of living. My favorite places at the moment are Germany, Melbourne, Montreal and Chicago.
Thank you.

Maybe Liautaud in Chicago? Other internationally accredited schools in the cities you're looking at, such as HEC Montreal and Melbourne Business School, are out of reach for you.

There's another factor here and that's language. Yes, Germany's got a strong economy, and potential jobs, but can you speak the language? That would be important. Likewise, if you are looking closely at Montreal, a post-MBA job in Quebec is going to require good business French skills.

RMIT probably would not be worth the investment, given the school's lack of accreditation from AMBA, AACSB, or EQUIS. Ryerson's might be a good option for you, and it's in Toronto, a city that might offer good post-graduate jobs.

What about Monash in Melbourne?
Does it worth the investment?
Thanks

Monash is certainly a good option. It's MBA has triple accreditation & also Monash is a member of Go8
