Can I get admission in MBA-IB without having Work Experience [#permalink] New post 21 Sep 2013, 09:37
Respected Sir/ Ma''am

I am 24, done with my Bachelors - 20011, and Masters - 2013 , both in Mass communication.
With having No Work experience, What are the odds that I can get admission for course MBA - IB? , by IB I meant - International Business or say Foreign Trade management program.

I am planning to give my GMAT Exam in first week of November 2013, as I am still pulling up my socks for Quant aptitude, as I consider myself weak in Maths area.

I would be grateful to you if you can guide me weather or not I should apply for MBA - IB , WITHOUT HAVING ANY WORK EXPERIENCE?
I am not aiming too high, I am looking forward to target & apply only in Above Average Public Universities of U.S. or U.K.

Can I get admission without having work experience, what are the likelihood??

Thanks & Regards

Priya,

By IB are you referring to Investment banking?
I a not aware of any MBA for investment banking. You can however specialize in finance and seek a job with an IB company using this route.

In your case I am not clear why you would do that considering you have a bachelors and masters in communications. You probably are a "poet" and not a "quant", which is what an IB job will require from you. Your job should align with your aptitude.

Not likely and if you do, the value will not be there for you in getting the MBA.
You will not be as useful/helpful to the class discussions and not having work experience will make it harder to relate/understand material or capture take away points.

That's of course my opinion.

Hi Priya,

I think a good way to consider this question is to ask yourself: "How will I be able to contribute to a richness of discussion in an MBA class? What value do I bring to the class, different and beyond the other MBA candidates?"

This question is more easily answered when you have work and managerial experience under your belt. Perhaps you will be able to answer these questions easily without work experience, but, will you be an even better, more competitive candidate with work experience?

Speaking from my own perspective, I have learnt so much in the last 3.5yrs of work experience - navigating workplace politics, framing negotiations with c-suite client executives, leading a high-performing team and a low-performing team, and how I have had to adjust my leadership to suit. These are all perspectives and experiences I can share with my MBA class mates.

Admissions committees need to be convinced that you will be an asset to the class mix. You will be the best person to answer your questions, and probably not anyone on this forum.

Hope that helps!
