Selecting B-schools for 15 years experienced professional  [#permalink]

Hello,

I am planning to take a break from my work and do a one year full-time MBA in Entrepreneurship. I am however not sure which B-schools would be ideal for candidates (like me) who have 15 years work experience. Most of the schools I checked have an average age (class) between 27 - 30 years.

I am also looking for advise on which MBA programmes would be most beneficial to me since I already have 3 years of managerial experience - Regular MBA or an Executive/Advanced MBA program.

Thanks in advance.

MBA after 30 is indeed tricky gnsudheer. Read here.

For EMBAs, you don't really need to take a break.

The Sloan Fellows programs would be ideal to pursue; read here more about them.

Cheers,

EMBA is part-time however indeed the Sloan Fellows programs, full-time, would be ideal for a mid-career professional (Sloan Fellows at MIT and Stanford MSx.) Less competitive is the BEAR program at USC. Not sure how old you are but you might consider 1 year programs if you are under 36, I would say. Also, European schools might surprise you a bit, HEC has an average age of 30. But you would need to choose career goals that really make sense for someone your age; on campus recruitment is unlikely.

Thank you Farrell for your advice.

I am 36 and I have more than 10 years experience in retail and supply chain. I would like to leverage my expertise and start my own. Would a regular MBA help me achieve my goal?

To be very honest, I'm not really so sure I would go that route, leaving a regular salary, taking on debt, and hoping for the best. I think I would do an EMBA or maybe no MBA - just obtain a mentor who is a serial entrepreneur and has some VC connections. At your age I think I would do this on the side if possible like your passion project. I mean if you have a high risk tolerance and money to burn it's one way to go, but most new businesses fail and so I would absolutely validate your concept, maybe with with SCORE to get some initial feedback google SCORE small business
