I've had a mundane career after college, working in various parts of supply chain/operations for 10 years. So "Why business school?" is fairly easy to answer - furthering career, learning, networking, etc. I'm also scoring 700+ on practice GMATs, so I feel like I'm set in that regard. I also know that if I don't get into a top-tier b-school, it's probably not worth my time.
All that said, my problem is, I don't really know what business school is! Is there another thread that answers this or can someone explain what it is?
For previous job experiences, do b-schools only really want for finance/marketing(where money is more directly at)-related job experiences?
What are the different specialties? Can someone explain each one in detail? Are we expected to know which specialty we want to go into before going to b-school? Does the specialty need to relate to your previous experiences?
If I have never taken classes on economics, accounting, finance, stats, etc. will I be at a disadvantage when entering b-school?
I have so many basic questions regarding b-school, I don't even know where to start.
