How to answer the question "Why a MBA now ?" during an interview...

I know that it's pretty personal and there is no generic answer but could you try to give some various ideas please ?

To give a little more details, I am willing to move my career from general management to Consulting. I have 3 years of working experience and an international profile.

I know this isn't the answer you wanted, but it really depends on you and your short- and long-term goals. I personally have NO idea of why YOU want an MBA! :-)

Presumably you know what an MBA will give you that you don't have now. And presumably there's a reason why you're applying now, right?

Generally, I would keep it in terms of "This is what I have / have done, and this is what I still need. An MBA will help me get that because of XXX."
