So I am looking to do an MBA in 2-3 years.
I am set to get a very good grade in my masters degree in maths from a top 20 university in the UK.
I did a practise GMAT for fun and I got 730.
The only thing which I am stuck on is which career to pick.
I have absolutely no idea.
I have spoken to top MBA consultants and they separate all the candidates by sector and put every application in context. Emphasis is placed on diversity.
Upon learning this my thinking is that your pre MBA does not matter IF you truly excel in your career path.
For example I'm thinking about pursuing a career in civil service. I have been told that this is probably not the best path because it is not common. HOWEVER if I truly excel in the civil service and quickly climb the ranks (I have strong contacts in this industry) , then would it still be a hindrance?
If the pre MBA path is not common then I am guessing it is a good thing as the admissions like a wide range of careers?
I want to understand how MBA admissions select candidates.
I know that MBA admissions like consultant.
Lets say you have to candidates. First candidate is an average consultant working at a top firm.
The second candidate is an exceptional employee working in civil service. He has made a huge difference and has progressed through the ranks at a very fast pace and now is at a very senior post in a short space of time.
Which candidate would the admissions go for?
