Masters of Business Administration (MBA)

A Masters of Business Administration, or MBA, is the postgraduate degree in business administration and one of the most popular degrees for incoming graduate students, according to the Council of Graduate Schools (based on 2010 data). MBA programs attract students from a wide range of disciplines, including education, hospitality and computer science. Executives in public education, nonprofit and for-profit enterprises and in the health care industry may all benefit from the scientific approach to management MBA courses provide. Earning a Masters in Business Administration can provide a range of skills and tools for graduates outside of the business world including the following:

Business Acumen: Running a business entails more than wearing a suit and tie. It involves understanding financial analyses and balancing the organization’s opportunity costs, both of which are taught in an MBA program. These skills can be valuable outside of traditional business environments, such as nonprofits or in education. Skills for running a successful business may help you keep costs down and ensure that the company stays within operational budgets and also prepare you to pull the plug on a project if it’s simply taking too long or not worth the time.

Leadership: An MBA program can impart the value of leadership and all its related aspects through a combination of training and internships. These programs may help teach you how to put your newfound leadership skills to use not only in day-to-day business operations, but in life outside of work as well.

Communication: An MBA program involves rigorous training, assignments, reports, presentations and group projects, all of which may provide you with the necessary communication skills to handle real-life business situations. The experiences you develop during the program have the potential to set you apart from others in your field.

Networking: The alliances that you form with your classmates may last a lifetime and the network that you create can be one of the most important and valuable things you take away from an MBA program. MBA graduates have said they often felt that the associations formed during the program were invaluable and could be drawn upon for years after they have earned their degree.

There are a number of MBA program specializations to choose from, including information security, operations management and accounting. Beyond the program specializations, there are also a number of different potential education paths you may take — full time, an executive program, distance learning or earning a double degree in two MBA focuses. There are many options, so it may be advisable to weigh the pros and cons of each according to your individual circumstances.

#

Posts

As it is my integral policy not to leave a single free resource :D. I am trying platinum gmat free test right now. I just completed the quant section and I must say it its quant section was much better than quant sections of many reputed test prep companies. The questions were not very easy though cant compare with gmat prep either. But the questions were representative of gmatprep for sure. I will update my score after I complete the whole test. Anyway, I recommend this site to anyone. cool questions out here !

Using these CAT results as reference, it looks like you have the potential to pick up some big points in BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections. While your immediate concerns are clearly focused on the Verbal section, you need to put some significant effort into training for the Quant section as well. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you’ve been studying and your goals:

1) How long have you studied?
2) What materials have you used?
3) Did you take the FULL CAT each time (with the Essay and IR sections)?

4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to take the GMAT?

GMAT assassins aren’t born, they’re made,

Sir, I am now telling my my whole journey so far, I am a 22 year old who has completed my Engineering this year.

1) I started Preparing for Gmat in month of July. 5-6 days a week I go for my GMAT Coaching classes for 2 hours (4/5 days of Quants and 1/2 days for Verbal) as the schedule keeps on changing. Apart from that I study at home for 4-5 hours ( 2/3 in the morning and then 2 hours in the evening). When I started preparing for GMAT in the Month of July my focus was mostly on Quants and comparatively lesser on Verbal( mostly a few questions of SC). But after studying for a couple of months, when I started doing Verbal more predominantly starting from CR, not only I found reasoning out the questions difficult but also in consumed a heck of a time in the questions ( mostly of RC and SC). In order to know my standing better i gave the first mock test of VERITAS PREP in which the problems I faced were mostly of Time Management(I was able to attempt only 35 of the 37 questions in Quants) and in the Verbal section being the lengthiest of them all created a sense of panic and anxiety in me because not only I was taking time to solve the Questions. In the end I had 5 minutes and around 10-15 Questions to do so more or less I had to guess out the answers mostly without even reading the questions.

Realising that Verbal, particularly RC and CR ,were the major problems of concern. I started working on them. For RC I kept a stop watch and tried to solve as many questions in the given frame of time ,starting from 20 questions in 40 minutes and then to 30 questions in 60 minutes. I was fairly inconsistent with my accuracy some time going to as high as 80% to as low as 50%. I thought my CR is Okay( comparatively), as I have completed the Official Guide for CR and practised almost all types of questions.

After that I gave the Platinum Gmat test, in which performance even though was better but wasn’t satisfactory, particularly the Verbal part. Now I am planning to give Kaplan Gmat test this Sunday.

2) Sir I my study material comprises of Official Guide ,notes from my coaching institute ,GMAT club questions.

3)Yes, I took the whole GMAT test. In Veritas they had the separate IR Section, but in Platinum Gmat instead of an IR Section they had an issue based writing section

4) My goal score is 700 Sir. But I will be contented in a score around 680 also. But I am working for 700

5) Since I have to join the company I am placed in by the Second week of October, I planning to give GMAT in the First week of October.

Test Day is a rather specific ‘event’ – the details are specific and they matter, so you have to train as best as you can for all of them. The more realistic you can make your CATs, the more likely the score results are to be accurate. The more you deviate, the more inflated your scores can become. Since your second CAT did NOT include the IR section, that experience was NOT realistic, so we can’t assume that that score result is accurate. Working from the other score result (the 510), you have to raise your scores 170+ points to hit your score goal. Unfortunately, this will likely take far longer than the one month that you have left. You will likely need at least another 2-3 months of consistent, guided study to hit your goals.

1) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
2) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT vs GRE: What – s the Difference? #mba #programs #without

#

GMAT vs GRE

GMAT vs GRE Scores for MBA Programs

Admissions trends are showing that business schools are looking for applicants with more than just a business background, and that means that the GMAT is not the only test in the game anymore. Since the GMAT and the GRE are completely different tests, comparing scores on the two is like comparing apples to oranges. ETS (the folks who administer the GRE) and GMAC (the folks who administer the GMAT) both use comparison tools to put student s scores into perspective, but many MBA programs use the ETS comparison tool as a benchmark. To get the most out of your score and your application, you should research your chosen schools to see what score ranges they require for admission. Use our business school search to research the MBA programs on your list.

Is one test easier?

In general, the GMAT suits those who have strong quantitative and analytical skills, who also excel at interpreting data presented in charts, tables, and text to solve complex problems. The GRE math section tends to be more straightforward and, unlike the GMAT, includes a calculator for all quantitative problems. Strong editors may gravitate to the GMAT s verbal section while test-takers with strong vocabularies may prefer the GRE. Both tests have their oddball question types Quantitative Comparison on the GRE and Data Sufficiency on the GMAT that will take some prep to get used to.

How do I choose?

The best way to determine whether the GMAT or GRE is better suited to your abilities is to get your feet wet with a practice test for each exam. Getting into business school is competitive and you don’t want to take an actual GRE or GMAT sight unseen. We offer full-length computer-adaptive diagnostic tests for both the GRE and the GMAT.

No matter which test you decide to take, you’ll need to prepare if you want to get a score that admissions officers can t ignore. We have prep options for both the GMAT and GRE to ensure you get the best score possible.
