Need some advice!
So I have recently been trying to decide between getting an MA in Economics or an MBA. The only way I would do the MBA is if it were from a top school (same goes for the MA in Economics). I wanted to know a few things that I couldn't figure out from researching MBA programs:
1. I am currently a Junior in my undergraduate studies (not by credit, only 6 credits away though). I have around 2-2.5 years left of undergrad and I have been offered a great position by a nightclub photography company that basically has a monopoly over all of the Tallahassee, Gainesville, and Orlando clubs (the position is in management and data analysis). I was an intern for only a month and my boss loved how efficient I was and all the mistakes I caught so he offered me this position right away. If I take this, I would be working part time (20-30 hours a week) and by the time I graduate i would have over 2 years of experience. Would this be enough work experience to go straight from undergraduate to getting an MBA? Would I still have to wait the average 2-4 years after undergraduate to gain even more experience?
2. Since this is a nightclub photography company, will this make the top MBA programs look down upon my job choice? I am not involved in any of the "party" aspects of the company, rather I do their numbers and look for trends on which days and hours to post content on to face book to maximize their advertising of the clubs (I would also be doing management as well)?
3. I wanted to know if my chances would be good relative to the tough competition for a top MBA program: I have a 4.0 GPA, many professors willing to write LORs for me, I am coauthoring a research paper with an economic professor, and I will be using that to write a senior thesis to graduate with honors in the major (my major is Economics). I know you can't assess my likelihood of being accepted without me having taken a GMAT, but let's say my score fits the criteria when I take it.
Thank you all in advance.
