Hey guys, so I have a friend who went with me to a top 3 liberal arts school and he graduated in 2013. He is the first from his family to graduate from college and he has been teaching tennis for the last 4-5 years. He's trying to make a career change into either tech or real estate but he never was willing to spend the money on going back to school until now. If you were him would you try for an MBA or a MSF that has some real estate courses?
I have no clue if he's too old for the MSF at 27 years old or what MBA programs will think of the fact the he's been teaching tennis for years. If he were to take the Gmat I'd guess he would get in the 680-730 range. Does he have any hope of a top 20 MBA with his background?
What I'm thinking in terms of cost is he could become a resident of Texas and apply to the UT austin MSF or UT Austin MBA or Texas A&M MBA. Also he could look at the University of Wisconsin MBA as they are relatively cheap and have strong real estate connections.
Another option is he could self study comp sci and possibly take comp sci classes at a nearby college and then apply for a Masters of engineering. But he would be almost 30-31 by the end of this plan.
Would love to hear what you guys think.
