Ditto BA2, GPA is a pretty worthless measure when evaluating. But if you force me, I'll take an engineer with a 3.0 over any biz degree with a 3.7 any day of the week.

If it's good, list it. If not, don't. MBB will always care. Finance firms will always care.

How low was your gpa

I'd say 1 year. Your resume is your story, so if the GPA helps tell a good story, keep it. If not, remove it 👍🏼

GPA was a 3.6 & heavy quant major from a top 20 ranked university (so not that stellar) if that helps

Following. 3.5 gpa from top 20 University as well.

Companies coming out of business school also care

I never put my GPA as it wasn't flattering. Still keep my GMAT though and have no plans to remove it. Showcase your strengths and mask the concern areas.

The real advice is to network like hell and get asked to apply. I don't even look at GPAs when I am interviewing candidates just the degree. Most STEM majors use the same few books across the nation regardless of university so I know what they have been taught from. It's recommendations from colleagues that I really look for in applicants.

Hi
I am currently working in finance but want to move to tech/information technology eventually since it's a growing sector. Any suggestions on how I can go forward with it in the most beneficial way?
Should I get into a program? If yes, which one would best suit me to get myself going in tech as I have no prior experience there.
Can I be self taught to expect good companies reaching out?
Just need some ideas to get going.

Please help!
