Hi,

I have a question regarding my MBA application (US).

I graduated from a well-known European business school in August 2015.

-Started a full-time, full-paid internship for 10 months at the beginning of August 2015 (industry where I am currently working) – this internship was part of a „Gap Year Program“, where you switch between positions inside a company
-GMAT preparation for 2 months
-In August 2016 I started another full-time, full-paid internship at a management consultancy for 3 months (I did the internship because I was not 100% sure in which industry I wanted to start my career). Such internships are pretty common in Germany, where I am coming from.
-Then I started my first „real“ job. When I am going to apply for the MBA I would have worked about 1.5 years (R1) or 2 years (R2) at this company.

So, would you say that the admission officer will consider only the 1.5 years / 2 years of my current position, or do they consider the internships as well?

Thanks in advance :)
Cheers

As far as I know, internships if asked are considered under a separate section of the application and they are not considered a part of full time work experience.

P.S: I have moved your post to the right forum so that admission consultants can chime in.

Good Luck :)

Internships are internships so they should be considered as such. They will only consider your full-time non-internship work experience towards your work experience. Your internship can be considered as valuable aspects of your work experience but will not count towards your years of work experience

Hey there,
Well I think the answer is simpler than you think.

Jobs are jobs. Internships are internships. Anyhow 2 years is still not long enough to apply for a GMAT :)

If you have any other questions, feel free
