Study for MBA? What to Expect

MBA programs are expensive so it’s natural to question the value of this investment. Top MBA programs are very expensive, but on the other hand, you will find plenty of affordable programs, especially if you’re interested in studying online. Anyway, take a look at this video with a sample MBA class from a few years way back to get an idea:

Rejected Applicants Percentage

Every accredited MBA program is selective. Acceptance is mostly based on personality, GMAT score, GPA, and experience. This selectivity in acceptance tells us something about the school’s standards, but also about the students who apply.

There are schools that attract a huge number of applicants and maybe many of them are not well qualified. Then there are schools that maybe do not get that many, but better-qualified applicants. There are many factors that determine if a school is getting many applicants. Among others factors that are decisive is the reputation of the school, location, tuition, the assumed or perceived the quality of the school and its visibility.

Manhattan GMAT Prep Review

One of the leaders of GMAT prep in the U.S. is Manhattan GMAT. The company features a phenomenal 10-volume preparation set that includes volumes on Mathematics, Critical Reasoning, Reading Comprehension, and Sentence Correction.

Be aware, though, that the Manhattan GMAT prep requires you to have basic knowledge and understanding of math. This is not for the beginner, and if you need a Math Foundations book, they have one but maybe Kaplan is a better option.  Though the MGMAT prep books are seen as a great help, many students will not be able to operate at the books’ level when they begin. Many students will need more support in math first, and others, more support in verbal skills. On the other GMAT subject fields, MGMAT’s foundation books are very useful.

MGMAT has really set the standard when it comes to GMAT prep material in print, and the company’s 10-book set is perfect for students ready to get all set for the challenging GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test). Some refer to the MGMAT prep books as ‘the GMAT bible’. For students who are not ready to take a dive into the deep yet, MGMAT has published two books with foundational studies that precede the required high-level GMAT preparation.
