If you want to pursue any MBA at any age you should just do it. Why do you care about the time frame of other people? Everyone follows a different path that leads to certain stages of life at diff times

Look at class profiles to get a sense of the age distribution of incoming cohorts.

As someone who went back at 29 I’d say jump on it sooner than later

I’m going at 29 and have no problem with that lol. I do not wish I would have attended earlier with quarantines and all

I’d say 3 years of full time work experience after undergrad at a minimum. The value of an MBA definitely increases for people with more experience imo because we’re more confident/knowledgeable about what educational outcomes we hope to achieve.

Isn’t a hard cutoff but as you age beyond the median age it slightly impacts your app. (I got into T-15 full-time MBA at age 31 and 5-10% my class that are older than that with oldest being 38)

Went back late twenties but part time. Happy with outcome but wish I did sooner

Going at 27, happy with the choice. I'm on the younger side in the class but not close to the youngest

Also, if you have 3 yoe it's fair game to go whenever.

Plenty of people go later. Just hang out with the veterans club. Almost all of us were in our 30s when we started, and we’re doing just fine.

The sooner you do it, the sooner you start to take advantage of it. You have enough work experience already to give you the context that can be valuable in the MBA experience.

Take the GMAT ASAP

It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.

Thanks in advance!
