Hi Experts,

After 8 years of work experise as an SAP Consultant working for different clients worldwide, I am planning to pursue my Long time dream of MBA.
For which, I have recently started to prepare for GMAT as well.

However, I recently got to know that I would be a father quite soon.

Can you please help me if I can still pursue my dream of MBA whilst having my first kid.?
(He/She would probably be seeing Earth by Dec, 2019)

Your thought sare highly appreciated.

Hi HARRY113,

Congratulations on your soon to be addition! It is very exciting.

Also, congratulations on deciding to pursue your dream of earning an MBA.

Earning an MBA is not easy; adding more "participants" to the picture increases the potential stresses (i.e. competing demands, scheduling, etc.). That said, it is absolutely possible to earn an MBA while having your first child. I have helped candidates apply to MBA programs with no kids, expecting as you are, as well as parents in the throws in the "terrible two's". Pursuing an MBA will always present challenges, and what needs to be done to succeed will depend on your unique situation and skillsets. You got this!

I am happy to discuss your profile as it relates to your target schools. When you are ready, please reach out.

Congratulations again!

P.S. You have inspired me to launch our "infant admissions package"... we can sign up your little one and coach from 0 - through undergrad for that sure acceptance at Harvard ;)

Hi HARRY113
Well, my question would be, where are your sources of support? It's possible but I would imagine that your wife would need support from a relative or a paid nanny as you will need/want to maximize the time you are spending in school. There are many schools with partner programs; I would strive to choose a school that has an active partner program so she has a built-in social circle. I imagine that you feel some urgency with this MBA thing? Given you have 8 years of experience, getting a bit on the older side?
Make sure to check into the student health insurance situation of course, for the school you choose.
Cheers and congrats,
Farrell
