UCD - Ireland


mrram

Hi There,

I have a poor GMAT score of 560. I have an experience of 3 years in the IT Industry. I have worked for British Telecom from TCS- India for 2 years and am now working as a Business Analyst at CA technologies.

Could you please suggest me any good colleges?

I am looking at UCD. What do you advice about the college and the opportunities post graduation?

Any colleges in the WORLD are fine with me. I am looking at good ROI.

Also, I am not looking for any specialization. Regular MBA is what I'm looking at.

Please put in your 2cents. Thanks

Average GMAT at UCD is around 630. Read this thread: http://www.find-mba.com/board/23936/ for some suggestions about where to apply to with a low GMAT.

Thank Duncan.

Post you mentioned is really helpful.

If I haven't missed, nothing in the post mentions that UCD has an average score of 640. Looking at the market conditions now what would you suggest me looking at my profile.

Adding to the profile above, I am also the director of a registered company which is soon getting into e-commerce market.

Thank Duncan.

Dear Duncan,

I have put that as plan B.

Plan A is to try for the colleges with this score. I am seriously looking at UCD because of the ease in starting a business after my MBA. Having said that I would also want to work.

Do you think this can work out?

Not to entirely disuade the OP from applying to UCD, but I'd at least make the point to him that simply having the minimum is often not competitive. As mentioned elsewhere in this thread, the average GMAT score is over 600 - and that, combined with the fact that OP is part of a very competitive applicant group (IT professional from India,) I'd think that he'd need something else to give him an edge.

Dear Mr. Ram,
You can check the UKBA rules on the following link
http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas-immigration/working/tier1/graduate-entrepreneur/

Since most of the B-Schools seeks for 600+ scores on an average unless the candidate has exceptionally good profile and i dont think 560 is a very impressive scores to be projected to good Universities for admission. However i would suggest that you can look for universities accepting without GMAT scores as well. some of these universities are
1. Aston
2. Durham
3. Bradford
4. Strathclyde
5. Birmingham
all these are among top 100.
