30 years old: IESE or Reapply to Kellogg/Yale/Ross? [#permalink] New post 03 Apr 2013, 07:26
Hellog guys

I've been admitted to IESE, but I still have doubts on their program for my objective. I know they are well-ranked (both top-10 in FT and Economist).

I plan to go back to my country (Latin America), although I consider other opportunities.

I already have 30 years and consider a career shift from Trading/Risk Management to Corporate Finance (not M&A, but in companies like J&J, GE, etc).
Edit: Won't I be too old to recruit with 33 years after MBA?

Regarding my objective, is IESE a good option for Latam? Should I wait one more year to apply to other schools? (I've been waitlisted on these three schools, so I might not need to wait another year)

Thanks!

i dont know much about latin america or about your carer shift. but iese is a great school with a strong employment report. i would imagine latin america would embrace the school given its location in a spanish speaking country. if the deposit isnt too hefty, id personally put it down and see what happens with the waitlists. if there's anything u can do to support ur cases at those other schools, id do that as well.
