I know my case is uncommon. I graduated from a one year MBA program in another school 11 years ago. I am now in my late 30's but I really like to re-boost my knowledge and business skills from the top B-school and pursue changes for my future careers. Can anyone share similar experience or thoughts? Thank you so much!

I think it is admirable to be a lifelong learner. A few thoughts-- one there is a program like Stanford MsX where you do another year of business study -- and the average age is in your range or maybe a bit more. Also look at other programs like MIT. In terms of Kellogg-- I think the best way to know for sure is to reach out to adcom there and speak to them about your situation. That way you'll know more before investing lots of effort. I could see that if you make a compelling case there is always a chance you can be successful. I also think you could look at many online or executive MBA options-- but if you want full-time then some of the MBA of the fellows programs like Sloan Fellows might be a great option too: http://mitsloan.mit.edu/fellows/ If you would like to discuss this with someone on our team in a free consult -- which I think could help you get more insight-- reach out to us at this link: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/

@MDXX

A lot has changed in the market and the MBA curricula (new concentrations) over the past 11 years. You should think about why you are seeking an MBA -- what are you looking to gain from a program (be as specific as possible). Are you looking change career, build a network, learn some particular skills, etc. Based on your answers to those questions, you should look at MBA, EMBA, and a focused one-year Master's programs (Kellogg, MIT, Columbia, Stanford, Harvard, are some schools you should look at (be sure to look at their various master's offerings as well). If you build a strong case for "why a second MBA?" and "Why now?," programs will be receptive.

Feel free to reach out for a free consultation where we can discuss your profile in length and options available (contact details in signature).

Good luck!

Hi MXXD,

Apologies for the delayed response.

Your chances of success will depend largely on how well you are able to identify and communicate your need for a 'second MBA'. If you are able to do so strongly, you may receive a positive response. At the same time, do look at EMBA options as well.

All the best! :-)

Hi MXXD,

I am a little late seeing this thread but I hope the advice is still useful.

Kellogg does accept candidates who have already done an MBA before. However take this into factor: A one year program or an eMBA/part time may be more suitable for you and the b-school is likely to push you into these programs given your age and work experience.

If you are looking for an immersive experience, one year programs like MIT Sloan Fellows, MSx Stanford, LBS Sloan Fellows or the iBear program will be suitable for you.
