I am one of the key leaders responsible for launching a low-cost airline in West Africa during covid-19 as well as securing a multi-million dollar investment at a critical phase in our in journey a well as bootstrapping the airline with my own personal funds and establishing a talent pipeline program to train a new generation of aviators ( pilots, engineers, cabin crew etc). I am considering the MSx program at GSB and the Sloan Fellow MIT.
I am aware that MIT Sloan Fellow program ( one-year program does not require test scores). However, GSB requires an admission test. I am planning to take my test in December. I don't feel prepared and nor do I feel that GMAT is a true reflection of an individuals intellectual vitality. Thus, I am relying on my strong work experience on the Africa continent +start-ups. Any advice?
