Admission at age of 34 ? [#permalink] New post 16 Mar 2014, 09:29
Hi All,

I am 34 year old, working for a leading semiconductor company and have an experience of 9+ years.
Is it very difficult to get an admission in ISB at this age .

Hi There,

I dont think its difficult to get admission in ISB becaus you are on the older side- you will have to explain your career goals and how ISB fits in to help you achieve them.

One other thing you may consider is whether it makes sense for you to join ISB at all. See this from two points:
1. will you benefit from the knowledge of a younger and less-experienced class?
2. Will ISB help you land jobs befitting of your profile? Talk to some of the existing older (more- experienced) students / alumni and find out.

This question is quite frequently being asked by mature people, why does it even matter? There is no age limit to learn and grow, you just need to be determined what you are looking for.

Anyways, there is no age limit in ISB to get into, but agreed to Namita, you need to consider her questions. This is the time to grow in the field that you are related to, and in which you have spent around 9+ years. Take a look at it.
