Hey guys, I am trying to get some insights into sponsored MBAs.

Did anyone here get their MBA covered?
Which company did you work for? and where?
Did it matter which functional area you were in?
Which school did you go to?
What were the terms? "eg. you had to pay upfront and come back for 2 years"

Thanks in advance

My cousin got his MBA sponsored by his employer. He got in to Kelley's online MBA program. There was no any condition except that he can't leave the company for 3 years after completion of the MBA. Sponsorship covered all MBA expenses i.e. Tuition, Study Material, Travelling, and Accommodation.

I think Company sponsored student must have a relatively higher chances of admit as the carrier centre need not invest a lot in such a candidate.
Off course this might as well be incorrect :)

Many consulting firms (BCG for sure, and others) will sponsor their employees to get an MBA. I do not think Accenture does it as a rule, however.

The schools do know which applicants are corporate-sponsored and it is an interesting dynamic since going that route makes things easier on one hand - your recommendations flow is simpler and less awkward with your bosses. It also puts a plus next to your name since the company felt you were worth $200K investment into you and thus most likely MBA-worthy material. Many schools such as Wharton, and others have a fair share of sponsored applicants (you can check the stats on US news that shows the percentage of folks seeking employment vs. graduating class).

Here is Wharton:
Full-time graduates 850
Full-time graduates known to be seeking employment 639

Here is HBS:

Full-time graduates 926
Full-time graduates known to be seeking employment 694


Also, many companies have specific conditions - you must be accepted into a Top 10 or so program based on the last 3-year listing in 3 or 4 rankings. These spots are competitive and companies will pick a certain number of individuals based on budget.
