Career progression and leadership experience are both factors that MBA admissions teams will consider. I recommend you read this case study of a candidate with limited work experience who was accepted into Harvard Business School:http://www.stacyblackman.com/comprehens ... ies/case4/
I also recommend you read this case study of an engineer. The applicant pool for engineers is large and competitive, so it is important that you look to differentiate yourself in your application.http://www.stacyblackman.com/comprehens ... ies/case2/
Hope this was of help.
