Hi All,

I had a doubt in my mind, and found no better place than this for its clarification.
Is 2 years experience in IT industry good enough to be able to apply to top B schools or should i stick to my job for few more years and then think of applying?

The average years of work experience at the top b schools is 5, so the other parts of your application need to be superior if you are to stand a chance with only 2 years of work experience.

Hi there,

Even if you were in IT Strategy Consulting, 2 years would be on the light side. You're just getting into the groove of things, building responsibility, gaining leadership experiences, etc.

I don't know what you do in the "IT Industry" but if I had to guess, I would assume you aren't in the spot where you can stand out from the thousands of other IT applicants out there.

If you feel like you are - let us know some more info about what you do and we can discuss it.

Hi Rahul,

If you can present strong story in application essays and exhibit leadership qualities, awards/achievements in or outside work place and other aptitudes during interviews then you can apply in b-school(s).

Hope this helps!!

Regards
Erina

HI there,
I am having a similar doubt.
Should I have a work experience in some business(finance or marketing) related company or I can join a IT industry and gain experience for 2-3 years and then apply for B-Schools abroad.
