Hi I was wondering what is the ideal work experience years? Is 2 years enough to get into a top 10 MBA school? 1 year?

Depends on what you do and how fast you move etc... 3-7, I would say in general. (we are counting by time of matriculation). 2 is a bit short, but if you have been exceptionally successful, it shouldn't make too much of a difference

Most top B-schools expect their prospective candidates to possess 4-5 years of work experience. With two years of work experience, you may not be very competitive for the top 10 B-schools .

Hi,

Average work experience for top 10 b-schools is in the range of 4-7 years, Visit http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool to measure your chances for top b-schools.
