Ved posted a topic in BusinessHi. I'm planning to apply for Operations Research or MEM/MIM/or any other business related degree for my masters studies. I'll be shifting from my Mechanical Engineering discipline. I have not take up any business related courses except for Economics and Professional Ethics. I've also done Optimization during my course work. With a 6.8 CGPA and a 318.5 GRE score (V - 157 Q - 157 AWA - 4.5), I'm planning to use my extracurriculars as my main focus during my applications. I've participated in two business case study competitions, one of which I was a global semi-finalist among 40 teams and I've also helped organize a case study competition of my own. I'm also a keen writer/blogger, which has given me awareness on concepts such as personal branding, content management, analytics and preparing a product like a blog. I wanted someone's take on whether this kind of profile is seen favorably for such programs?

liversnails posted a topic in ApplicationsHey guys, I'm a Supply Chain Management student at Arizona State University and I'll be graduating in May next year. Midway through my junior year I realized that I wanted to pursue a career in operations and manufacturing. I had done some research and found that most internships and jobs in operations or manufacturing require you to hold a degree in industrial engineering. I wanted to know if you guys could give me some advice or share your personal experiences on how someone like myself can gain admission (or if it would even be a possibility) into a highly ranked masters in industrial engineering program. I would like to mention that unlike the traditional business student, I have taken all the same math classes engineering majors do and some computer science courses as well (Calculus 1-3, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Calculus-based Statistics, Intro to Programming, Object-Oriented Programming and Data Structures). I have a 4.0 GPA and am part of the honors college here at ASU. I took the GRE recently and did reasonably well (Verbal: 161/170, Quantitative: 166/170, Writing 4.5/6) I would like to thank everyone in advance. Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.
