    Dear MBAadmissiongurus,

    I need assistance in choosing a university in US for MBA. I will also require further assistance/guidance in preparing for the admission.

    I have just completed my Bachelors in Nanotechnology and have no work experience. I do have 6 months internship exp, though.

    I scored 8.6/10 in undergraduation, GRE- 311, TOEFL-117.
    If required I will appear for GMAT.

    But I would like to know if I can get a decent university without work experience. Please advise…..

    Dear MBA Admission GURUS,

    I have been asked to write an essay on “what is the difference between an academic and a professional master’s program in business and it’s implications for management education ” as part of my application for MSc in business administration. I am a geologist from an engineering background.

    I would much appreciate your advice.

    Thank you

    • Hi

      Thanks for writing back.

      The primary difference would be that the academic version is more focused on theory and research while the professional MBA is more focused on (a) application (b) case study presentations/consultations (c) presentation and leadership skill development hands-on.

      We can assist you with building the entire essay. Pl. feel free to connect on info@mbaadmissiongurus.com
      Thanks

      • Greetings Pooja,

        We have responded in detail to your post via email. Prima Facie, any US MBA program of repute and reliability WILL require atleast 1.5 to 2 years of experience at the point of application submission. You are ready to apply once you have met the requirement. GMAT is not mandatory since you do have a GRE score (which is also strong)

        Thanks
        M.A.G team

    I like the essay samples here. Can I use these for my MBA applications? Are these original samples? Do you provide a essay consultation service where I could be guided by 1. brainstorming and 2. reviews of my b-school essays? I want to retain my original essay writing style since am fairly confident on that front. The right content or ideas is where I need assistance. Thanks. Michelle.

    • Hi Michelle. Thanks for the compliments. To answer your queries

      1. You may use these to get an idea/structure your thought process for the MBA admission essays – to an extent.
      2. These are original samples – in most cases. We do not wish to jeopardize careers of our student-clients by posting lives in entirety. Thus content has been re-worded in all cases BUT the themes are the same. All cases have made it to MBA interview stages (thus the essays did their job!), 90% of these cases made it to the MBA program of choice and around 50% with desired or sometimes even unexpected high amount of MBA program scholarships/funding/financial assistance.
      3. Yes, we do provide such a service deemed as “pure consultation” where we will never interfere with your writing style. However: IF we find grammar errors – we will definitely advise. In fact, we are increasingly shifting to this mode since it works best. Pl. feel free to connect at haresh_kodnani@mbaadmissiongurus.com or contact us at +91-8976122526 (11-30 to 20-00 IST) .

      To your success,
      Haresh Kodnani
