Anyone gotten a masters to make up for ug gpa before later on applying to MBA programs? Feeling like my 3.1 (engineering) won’t cut it without supplement regardless of any GMAT score 😔

Got into S/W with a 3.18 gpa in STEM and 740 GMAT! Shoot your shot.

Lol d*ck

I would think/hope they treat engineering GPA different from a business GPA.

I didn’t address it directly, just allowed the other parts of my app to speak to that. I think anything above a 3.0 is acceptable honestly...you’d have to directly explain a 2.7 gpa.

Hi. I'm a fresh MBA graduate from IIT-B with no prior work experience. This Covid has taken a toll on the opportunities for fresh graduates and I'm looking out for people who could guide me or refer me for the same. I have 9 months internship experience across marketing and operations domain and 6 months experience of running my own business which I had to close down. I've been a freelance Content writer and event organizer as well. It'd be really helpful if you could help me with this. Thanks.

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

I’m struggling to see the value of a MBA as a consultant. If you come back to consulting, you lose career progression. You can’t really go to PE/VC from MBA with a consulting background only. A MBA will not help you get any job in tech any more than your consulting experience would. Same with industry jobs. What’s the value other than a free 2 year party/networking session assuming you return to your firm?
