Hi Mzr - This may not be what you want to hear, but I think in order to get into decent MBA programs, you will need to retake the GMAT, and get at least another year or two of work experience. Are you in a hurry?

Well, you can always try. But I think an MBA is more about building on previous working experience rather than collecting degrees and going out into the world with your education 'behind you'.

I would advise you to look very, very closely at the quality of schools with lower admissions standards. You have a strong academic background and you're ambitious, so you should be picky. But a dodgy MBA will not only be a waste of money, but I suspect it could actually be counterproductive on a resume (imagine an employer thinking, "Oh, I know that school...it's a degree mill. Next!")

Hi There,

I have to agree with the others. The amount of time and money it will take to re write your GMAT is well worth it compared to going into a program that is not right for you.

Everything else is in your favor and you could get into some good quality programs and schools. Do whatever you can to re write your GMAT!

I was hoping maybe by entering into MBA programs with 2 year length, and/or the ones with internship features would cover my lack of experience. What do you think about this opinion?
If I still want to apply and try my chance, which program do you suggest so that I both have the entrance chance and the program would be an accredited one?


2 year program might be a great idea. These are more common in North America and Asia, I think. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend any specific programs. I still think it's worth it to study a bit and retake the GMAT - especially if you are prepared to do a 2 year program. But I won't say that anymore. ;) Good luck
