Mim for business/management graduates

    Hello, I'm currently pursuing a BBA program at a university here in Pakistan.
    I was interested in pursuing a MiM straight outta university, as I won't have the work experience for a top MBA program.
    My first choice countries to study are the UK and the US. I'm not really interested in studying anywhere else besides that.
    I was looking into some top schools there. But I have a question, many of their sites say the MiM program is for undergrads from a stem or arts background who want to take up the business world. I looked up the programs at Michigan Ross, penn state, kellogg, and they all say that on their site.
    I have a business/management background, can I still apply? Will it be worth getting into these programs for me? And most importantly, do I have less chances of getting into top programs because I have a management/business background?
    Thanks.

    Hello,

    in my Global MIM Survey I found out that Masters in Management differ by their target groups.

    • One category of MIM programs requires a first degree in business or economics.
    • A second category requires a non-business background.
    • A third category requires a business degree but is also open to degrees from social science auch as psychology or politics.
    • And a final group of MIM programs is completely open to any acadmeic degree no matter which discipline.

    If you studies business before, I always recommend to choose a MIM program that requires a business degree because it appears to avoid redundancy in terms of curricula.

    In my search engine at http://www.mim-compass.com you find the filters "Program focus" and "Academic requirements". I recommend to search for the following category:

    • Program focus: Masters in Management
    • Academic requirements: business degree required.

    Best wishes,
    Thomas
