Is 33 too old for an executive management program in the US? Been in a business analyst role for some time and 8 YOE in different countries (Singapore, India, UK and US) . I want to enhance my skillset and credentials to get better roles as I rise up the ladder in corporate. Want to have a good biz school network too.. Not sure if its worth taking the risk.

Too young. Executive programs are usually for older business owners or c level people trying to get a leg up

33 is way below average age for an executive program.

33 is about right. Most folks get their MBA after about 5 YOE - it makes what you’re learning more meaningful and you will have some context of the topics being introduced in class.

33 definitely puts you on the far upper end, but not necessarily too old

For an executive program? Most 33 year olds aren’t executives

Go for it if you know what you want out of the program. It's a little on the higher side, specially for careers in management consulting, PE, IB etc. (27-30 ideal)..but go for it now than later!

Definitely not too old; and you’ll likely get more out of it, and be able to share more bc of your experiences

Just started a new role in finance and I’m the only woman on the team. It’s been 3 weeks and the guys have been pretty unwelcoming and kind of rude. The first day everyone was welcoming but it went downhill since. One of them keeps trying to scare me that the work will get hard etc and there’s always awkward silence and sometimes unnecessary rude remarks. I just started and don’t feel right what should I do.
