<p>1- Is an MBA interesting for an engineer without any work experience ?
Only you can answer that, but there are plenty of schools (lower ranked) that will love to have an engineer without any work experience.</p>

<p>2 - Is the work experience a necessity ?
No, if you apply to lower ranked schools. Yes, if you want to go to a good one (top 30).</p>

<p>3 - What other programs can help me develop my mangerial skills ?
Masters in Operations, given by engineering schools.</p>

<p>4 - What scores must i need for the admissions ?
For lower ranked schools, the higher the better. For really bad schools, you don't even need to take the GMAT. For top schools, 680ish, but score isn't that important, it's the work experience. You should look at the school website to see the score range.</p>

<p>5 - How much time do i need for the preparation of the GMAT ?
2-3 weeks should be sufficient.</p>

<p>liu's information is correct. I would, however, strongly urge you to get some work experience before pursuing any MBA. It may not be required by the lower ranked schools, but you will get a great deal more out of an MBA program if you have some real world experience. And you will be a much more attractive applicant to any school because you will have more to contribute and a more nuanced understanding of the material. At top schools, 5 years of work experience (including management experience) is not uncommon and two years seems to be the bare minimum.</p>

<p>ditto M's Mom. The people in my master's program who didn't have experience didn't get 1/2 out of the program that the rest of us did. And with an MBA and no experience, you're going to end up underemployed.</p>

<p>very true lynxinsider. I know someone with an MBA from Pace who is currently employed as a door man.</p>
