Profile evaluation - age factor [#permalink]

Hi, could you please advise me whether the age would be an obstacle in admission into any of the top 20 B-Schools.

My background is of accounting (holding an ACA), having worked in three MNC's in the past eight years. I have worked with PwC, HSBC and J P Morgan earlier. Have travelled across twenty countries for work purposes.

I am aged 31 currently, preparing for GMAT, which means by the time I finish GMAT, I will be 32. Could you please tell me whether this will be a negative in the application process for B-Schools like LBS, I am looking to do a 12-15 months MBA.

rgds,

The average age of top 20 business schools is below 30 however that does not mean that your age is a deal breaker. What it does mean is that you will need to explain why you are pursuing an MBA at this point in your career. Your short and long-term goals should be clearly articulated. You may also want to consider executive MBA programs at your target schools since they typically attract older students.
