Hi Meenal,

I would suggest you not to opt for MBAs which require no prior work-experience.You will have to settle for B-Grade business school. None of the reputed B-Schools offers MBA without Work-Experience.

Best option for you will be to apply for MSc Management courses at reputed Business Schools!

i must agree with this - most MBA programs which do not require work ex are not really worth it! do an MSc instead, or gain some work experience.....

I have maintained 7.5 GPA and hope to pass out with that.
> GPA is universally graded on a 5 point scale measure..7.5 means (if I am not mistaken) 75%...thats 1:1 in UK or 3.2 (approx) in USA ; you are in good standing provided you dont have any backlogs and have decent extracurriculars+awards


But i am searching for an option without work experience.
>MBA without experience is utopia...well some Unis do dole out some concoction but its better not to drink that. If you dont have experience (more or equal to 5 yrs) you have to look for MS (in USA) or MSc (in UK) degrees...Some MS/MSc degrees got special requirement in terms of work-ex and GRE/GMAT & Toefl/Ielts score requirement so do your research carefully.


What grades do i need to get in these tests to get myself to a good B-school(without work ex i.e.)
>Generally 650+ in GMAT or 1250+ in GRE is a good score with 4.0 in AWA. For Toefl IBT a good score is 105+ and for IELTS its band 7.5+

Hi..

I'm from India.

I'd be completing my Bachelors' Degree in a stream completely unrelated to any kind of Management or Business. I intend to pursue my higher studies in Management right after I get my Bachelor's Degree. I have a few doubts regarding that.

1. Since I'd be having no work experience at all, is it advisable to do a Master's course in Management (MSc. Management or MSM)..?

2. Incase I do Master's in Management, is it good to work for some 5-6 years and then do MBA?

3. Or as I least prefer.. Should I work for 2 years right away after my Bachelors' Degree and do MBA.. (least prefered because I believe that I'm not yet ready for work).

P.S. I'm in no hurry to complete my MBA.

hymz in my opinion

1)not really - it's not bad per say but don't expect it to get you promoted without experience

2)yes absolutely

3)no one is every ready for their first day at work - just get in and start - that is the only way you'll be ready. It will occur over time

A few years in - then pursue your MBA (part-time is good so that you can continue to make money)

Well as an alternative one of my faculty has advised me this..

"Before doing any management course it's better to have a minimum work experience of 2 years. So during campus placements try for the easy job so that i can prepare further during my work time and get the required work experience and mental skills"

Is it advisable..??

ravikant2007, by doing an MBA that doesn't guarantee anything. You are just coming out of university with no experience, so you'll need to work your way up from an entry level job based on the industry you'd like to specialize in. There is no assurance of a job. If you apply for an entry level job, you will be competing with a much larger sample of applicants. An MBA is good to have but it is better when coupled with 5-10 years of experience. Believe me it makes a big difference. You understand the concepts/theories at a whole new level. You can better integrate your learnings in class with real life work experiences. Your best bet is to find a job. Work for 5-8 years. Make some money. Then go back and do your MBA. Or do your MBA online part-time while working. Don't get yourself into a debt hole and then have no way to pay it back.
