Schools for candidates with longer work experience [#permalink] New post 14 Nov 2011, 13:42
Can anyone that had a longish (>7 years) work experience who is currently enrolled in fulltime US B-school speaking about their experience? I chose to spend last 4 years working in various countries for the global experience instead of applying to applying to B-school at that point. In retrospect that seems like a bad move as everyone I speak to now claim that younger is better for US B-schools. I know the overall profile matters but at this point can anyone tell me, is it even worth considering a full time MBA program with 9 years of work experience? If so, what schools are longer work experience friendly?

Thanks in advance.

You might want to check out Columbia and Wharton. I have seen few people in their class with more experience. Good luck!

I haven't matriculated yet so I'm not exactly an ambassador. However, I will have 10 years of work experience upon matriculation in Fall 2012 and I was just accepted to Kellogg.

There's nothing you can do about your age. Just make a compelling case for why you need an MBA and why now is the right time.
