Or does it matter more what he/she can say about you and what I did with that supervisor as opposed to who he/she is?

It doesn't matter from whom you get the recommendation as long as it satisfies the requirement for the recommendation for each school.

The person who provides a recommendation for you must be able to explain your leadership skills, potential, weakness, and growth areas.

Hi redalertmba,

No, it doesn't matter whether your recommender has an MBA. What is more important is how closely your recommender has worked with you and will be able to provide a feedback on your candidature by highlighting specific examples.

We recommend that you watch the following short video as it provides greater clarity on how you must approach your Recommendations.

All the best! :)

A recommendation from someone who knows you well that is exceedingly positive is the most important aspect. If the person is an alum or an MBA, I think it helps all things being equal, especially if they can speak to how they see you having a positive impact in their MBA community given their knowledge of b-school

Hey redalertmba
GREAT question. First, I want the person who is going to write the most kick-ass letter. If they have an MBA, that can be helpful because they've been through the process themselves and know how important a great letter of recommendation is. BUT what's more important is that the person knows you well and can speak to your business impact.
Hope that helps!
