    I am Ankush Agarwal, in my Final year of Engineering in Computer Science from PDM College Of Engg. ( MD University, Rohtak).
    I want To pursue MBA after my Engineering gets completed i.e June-2012. Looking Forward for some global exposure, initially i planned to give a GMAT exam but since all universities require work experience and i do not have any, i want to do MBA as soon as my engineering gets completed as a ‘ Fresher MBA student’.

    Basically I want to pursue my MBA Degree from Abroad (Expenses is not an issue). And if it is from India, like Amity, i need some global exposure (Foreign tour) with it.

    “I am Confused in the selection of MBA Stream as in HR, IT, Finance etc. I want to do general MBA.
    Plus i am confused about how to approach universities, as well as about the eligibility criteria and admission procedure.
    My third Problem arises, weather to start Preparation for GMAT, IELTS, TOEFL or apply directly to universities on the basis of my School and Graduation score, because giving GMAT has a point only if one has some Work Experience and i don’t have any.

    (Expected)Engineering Percentage – 65%
    CBSE 12th Class Percentage – 65%

    Kindly Help me with these problems, it would be a great help from your side in providing guidance for my career.
