You might be ready for an MBA if...you can clearly demonstrate what you bring to an MBA classroom and business school campus. Most top-tier MBA programs are looking for candidates who can add significantly to classroom discussion through first-hand experiences gained in the working world.
While some schools are admitting younger students with less time on the job, they generally do so only when a candidate can show an accelerated career path and/or unique work or life experience.
Why? Keep in mind that while you are looking to pursue an MBA because of what you want to learn, business schools are looking for what you have to offer. The ideal business school classroom brings together students from diverse backgrounds and industries, who can share best practices and skills developed in the trenches.
