The simple answer is yes she can. We worked with a stay-at-home mother about two years ago - who wanted to use her MBA program as a way to transition back to her professional life. However, not all schools are going to be equally accepting and you have to really focus on her future goals and present strong reasons for getting a graduate business degree. We also had to be creative in handling the recommendations as most business schools do not want recommendations from people who the candidate has not worked with in the past two years. However, this all can be done.
The schools we decided to apply to included: Wharton, Columbia, Sloan, Anderson, Kellogg, LBS and Georgetown. Due to transfer problems with her husband she decided not to apply to Ross, Tuck and Fuqua. To be honest, the way we came to finalize this list was having her go to information sessions for all top programs and only focus on those where that took an interest in her story after she said that she was a stay-at-home mom. An imperfect science, but the results were impressive.
