Hi,

Thank you for choosing CareerGuide.com!!!



Most US universities recommend/require a minimum of two to three years of work experience. Though some universities may accept you without any work experience, preference will be given to candidates with work experience.

Apart from the above GMAT score {depends on university criteria } , TOFEL is need to take admission in any US university.

Your past academic record is one of the most important deciding factors in securing admission to a business school in USA. Most business schools require you to have a reasonably good academic record. Each university has its own minimum requirement for its MBA programs, which are flexible depending on the candidate's profile.

hope this helps

All the best

Hello,

Thank You for approaching us at CareerGuide.com!!!


Deciding to study an MBA abroad may be really daunting and I am glad you approached counsellors here. Doing the MBA in USA, will prove definitely rewarding and would also help you mould personally and professionally too. Also studying abroad and particularly in a business school will be definitely a rich experince for you. Before I go on further, first of all may I ask you why have you decided to take a shift from Bio field to business and management? Please note that there is no wrong/ harm in shifting courses but there has to be a genuine reason behind this shifting. In fact, you need to write a personal letter to the University as part of your application process explaining why do you want to shift your focus from bio to business and management. The reason you mention should be true, reasonabe and really appealing.

Looking out your scores in both undergraduate and postgraduate I believe it is going to be tough to get into top Ivy league universities or their business schools. In general the admission criteria to get into top business schools in the USA or anywhere in the world is,

1. Strong academic record, preferably above 80% in Engineering and above 85% in Arts and Science subjects.
2. A cracking GMAT score. The top schools demad a score of 680 and above in GMAT exam, though students with 730+ are usually given the prefernce. (Please note, you need to only write GMAT for studying the MBA in USA however if you want to do an MA/ MS in Management instead of the MBA then in this case you will require to produce GRE scores. The top schools demad 165+ in quantitative, 165+ in verbal and 5+ in analytical writing of your GRE exam).
3. A minimum of three years of work experience is appreciating to enter top business schools though a few top business schools are happily considering applications even without any work experience.
4. TOEFL score with more than 100 score or IELTS with more than 7.0 points, with no section less than 5.5 points.

The above four criteria decides whether or not you will stand eligible to studying at the top business schools. Apart from these your personal statement explaining why you want to study MBA there, and your recommendation letters explaining why you are and will be a good student are extra factors that will determine your place at the top business schools.

In sum, I would advice to gather some two-three years of work experience before you apply for the MBA. If you do not have work exp, you may instead choose to do the MA/ MSc in Business and management in USA/ UK. The cost of doing MA/ MSc are pretty less compared to doing the MBA. Next, prepare well for your GMAT exam and crack it with a top score preferrably above 700 and also score more than 100 in TOEFL/ 7.0 in IELTS. All these may push you to next set of good business schools at least.
