Hi Folks,

I already have 4 years of work experience and will be appearing for CAT this year. By the time I join any IIM i will have 5 years of work ex. Is it still good to go for MBA at IIMs after 5 years of work ex.

I was in the same dilemma last year. :| Most of the people told me that the companies that for campus placements prefer candidates with less than 3 years of work experience. It sounds really odd. And most of the IIMs for PGDM course prefer fresh graduates. 60% of batch strength are fresh graduates.

Hey GMATkillerdude,

Nice username.

I believe it depends on opportunity cost. Taking up a task always has a risk of not doing other. Just as you mentioned, 4 years of work experience and by the time you will get in a MBA program you will have 5 years of work experience so you have other options available as well. Now it depends on whether you would want to leverage your work experience and on goals in life. If you are looking to become an international leader then I would say INSEAD is a very good option. I am not saying by going into IIMs, you will not become international leader but probability of getting recognised as one increases when you take up schools such as INSEAD. I hope that makes sense.

On an average a student in INSEAD has 5 years of work experience. I had 5.5 when I started INSEAD.

After opportunity cost, next important thing is profile and GMAT score. Why don't you share information here (or PM me) and we can continue our discussion.

Best,
Shantanu
