All,

I am wondering what my chances would be a top EMBA program with a much younger profile. I am specifically targeting Columbia and Wharton.

Age: 26
UGPA: 3.8
GMAT:700
WE: 2 Years at Big 4 TAS
Might apply in two years

Thoughts?

One of my former clients is doing the Saturday EMBA program at CBS right now, and he is 25, I believe, and the youngest in his class by a fair margin. He didn't want to give up his FT job. I also helped an Indian client get into Wharton EMBA and he was 30, who just graduated. Are you interested in finance schools?

However I have to ask, why are you considering EMBA instead of a part-time program? I think it might be a better fit with someone who has 4 years of WE.

The best programs do not seem to have a part-time option

Well, Berkeley, Booth, Kellogg and Stern are great programs - and I think it would be a better experience being around people your age. Also, there is more focus on building business skills. EMBA is not bad but more networking oriented. https://www.usnews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-business-schools/part-time-rankings

I'd rather complete the degree at Wharton. I think I would just have to wait until I am in the "age range"
