Hey guys,

just wanted to know if it is critical to have work experience in order to get accepted, also how about the other top 10 schools.

Is there a actual statistic available showing how many students of top 10 schools have work experience ?

Thanks for every answer!

Kind regards

Nick

I recommend doing some hard googling about this subject. Business schools require work experience because an MBA without any perspective is virtually worthless. Most MBA programs like 3-5 years of work experience with many looking at averages and medians around the 6 year range. Re: Harvard Business School - If you are a prodigy, they will put you in the 2+2 program where you can go work for two years and then attend HBS. In short - If you are looking to go get an MBA without any work experience, I highly recommend going to work for a few years. You will come back wiser and appreciate your graduate degree more. I've been out of college for four years, and I still feel like I don't know enough.
