Forum: School selection (2 Comments)


  • Posted by - Assolute - on 25 January 2013 - 9:51pm


    Just wondering any recommendations on what schools I should apply to.

    I have a GPA of 67% (junior-senior GPA of 71)
    My GMAT score is 640.

    I applied to... Tampa, Wake Forest, Arizona State and University of Florida so far - getting into Tampa
    I'm looking around at other schools in the states, as well as anywhere in Europe now.

    Looking to get into a general MSc Management program, or even marketing.

    Thanks in advanced for any input!

      Hi there,

      thank you for your question. Please understand, however, that we do not recommend schools as the right school for one person may be the wrong school for another one.

      Your approach seems to be very broad at this moment (at least from what I read in your message). Depending on whether you want to go for a more general Master in Management or a rather specific Master in Marketing you may find different schools attractive. I would carefully think about which position you want to have after graduation. If you want to work as a marketing expert then a Master in Marketing certainly is fine. But if you are not so sure maybe a MIM would be better.

      A compromise could be that you choose a Master in Management that allows for a marketing concentration.

      Finally, the area where you study is important. In our Global MIM Study 2012 we found that 90 percent of the MIM graduates start to work in the country of their university.

      Best wishes
