MBA: Work Experience [#permalink] New post 19 Jul 2012, 13:01
Hi:

Would really appreciate if Admissionado can share its inputs on my queries.

I had given my GMAT this January and secured 730. However, due to family, personal and financial priorities I do not think I would be able to apply in schools before 2014 fall. By then I will have over 8 years of experience. My years of experience certainly fall beyond work-ex brackets for almost all full time MBA programs that I've been targetting. Will this seriously hamper my prospects of getting an admit in schools? How's 8-9+ work-ex viewed by schools? I understand I can still articulate my needs pretty well in my essays to stand a chance but how do ground realities stack up? Should I be considering an EMBA instead? Does an EMBA really make a difference to your profile?

Please advise.

Hello there, dude.
Sorry it took us soooo long to get back to you, we took a little holiday there.
Anyhow, we are revved up and ready to rock.

First of all, congrats on the awesome GMAT!

Second, to answer your question: Honestly, the difference between one year won't make THAT much of a difference in your profile. If you could get in when you were 30, you could likely get in when you are 31. As to whether you should apply to an EMBA or an MBA, this depends on LOTS of things, including your goals, expectations, age, family situation, work situation, etc. The easiest way for me (or any other consultant here at Admissionado) to help you out would be for you to drop us a line and ask a consultant during your free consultation. With your resume and other info in hand, we would be MUCH more prepared to help you out.

Finally, apply to EMBA and MBA programs are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Meaning you can apply to a few EMBA programs, a few MBA, an Accelerated program too all at the same time. The question is: What will get YOU to your goals???
