Hello everyone

I have been a hardware engineer for about 8 years now and I want to do a part time MBA and targeting the haas school of business fall 2020. Any guidance on
1) how to and where to start(feeling clueless at this time)
2) GMAT preparation( any suggestions on where to find the best practice material, practice tests)?
3) how easy or hard is it to get into the HAAS school of business given the fact that I have lead a few engineering projects but don’t have a product or program manager experience)

Any information/guidance will be very helpful

    Getting into HAAS part time is super easy. Doesn’t require any exceptional GMAT performance

    Thank you all for your comments. Wondering what the differences are between part time mba and a full time mba( apart from the time differences)? From what you are all telling me, I feel a part time mba is much less valued than a full time mba( for ex at haas).

      Correct, but it has advantages as well. If you go part time you’ll most likely come out of graduation with very little debt as you’d be working the whole time. Full time you not only give up your total comp for 2 years, but also pay 220k to go. If you don’t care so much about the money then full time is 50x better. Also an mba is most valuable when looking to switch industries or career paths. Ie, going from an engineer at Nvidia to a consultant at MBB or investment banking.

    Your experience is plenty and you should do fine on the gmat with an engineering background. Toughest part about haas is how they select their candidates. I know people who’ve gotten into Harvard and northwestern get rejected from haas. Check out manhattan prep for gmat studying

    I went to Haas full time program. Feel free to DM me. In general the comments here are true. Part time is easier to get into, especially if sponsored by your company. Full time is actually harder than Stanford and Harvard because the class sizes of 260 are smaller than the 400 at Stanford and 900+ at Harvard. (I was class of 2012 so these numbers may have changed since then)

    Hard to know if you graduated from the part time program or full time program. So that makes one wonder if there are any differences!

    Haas is a joke for getting in. Don’t worry so much

    Part time for most schools is pretty easy to get in to
