I think its great that you are thinking graduate school. But, I will advise you to get some experience under you belt first... between your undergrad and B school. I have an MBA from LMU and I will tell you that many of the students in that program were simply not equipped to take on the challenges of an MBA program from anything other than an academic perspective. Many of these students came to B school with no experience and little to offer or contribute into the heavy team building and management aspects of B school. MBA is not an 'extension' of undergrad...not something you just continue to do after you graduate. If your schools offer an ExecMBA, PT MBA or any othe options, look for the one that best reflects your experience...but again, IMO, I would recommend that you gain some experience first and decide which concentration would be best for you and your carreer. I have an Int'l Bus Undergrad and a MBA Marketing and I run a small insurance consutling office here in CA. If your plan is to open an internet cafe somewhere... you will probably have the knowledge of IT without the MBA...MBA IT is mainly for the management of IT not for the 'techincal' aspect of it... therefore focus on the concentration that will make your business, marketing or finance, etc. Good luck and let us know what when you open your cafe!
