You need a few years of experience before b-school, but if your age has a 3 handle then you’re too old. So anywhere in between there is fine

My brother went to b-school when he was 31 and he mentioned that he was almost the oldest student in the class

These days there are so many executive programs , I have had the opportunity to be part of every internal executive trainings as well eg risk executive training , you need to see what’s the incremental value after years of work especially if you have breadth of experience

I know quite a few 30 year olds that got mba’s from Cal. 20’s would be pretty young actually

Some at HBS who’s 31 said it’s better to go later as since it’s all about networking, people prefer to network with those who have had more work experience
