I'm surprised how much is written about the need to obtain a recommendation from your current supervisor. I work for a Big 5 consulting firm, where an MBA is generally frowned upon. I have worked with my current supervisor for only a few months, so I have selected 2 former supervisors that I have worked for over many years. If the school does not specifically ask about a recommendation from a current supervisor (e.g. Berkeley), do you feel I need to write anything about this?
Since you have only worked for your current supervisor for a few months, you could possibly get away without writing why you did not ask him or her, but I think it is wiser to dot your i's and cross your t's. So include a short paragraph saying that you chose to ask your former supervisors because you have only worked for this supervisor for a few short months and because you didn't want your current supervisor to know you planned to leave.
