I think ages of ppl in full time mba go up to 38, although the average is 28. I heard alot of ex military can be mid 30’s so it’s definitely not uncommon. I am 32 and considering it so I asked ppl that did the MBA and they said it was perfectly fine. Alot of candidates were married with kids even in the full time programs. Please speak to ppl at the programs you’re interested in and gather more intel.

Up to what point is it feasible for an MBB analyst / associate to switch into banking in the US without going the MBA route? How many YoE? I know it's generally tough to switch after a couple of years, but since MBB is so prestigious I'm wondering how much that helps. You can assume transactional experience.

What about in geographies other than the US, anybody got insights?

Thanks!

Hi everyone, I just finished my masters degree a few weeks ago, and I’m looking for a new role. I obtained a bachelors degree in 2011 however that school closed and did not share records with WV higher education comission, neither are they at student clearinghouse. The school was accredited, during my time then lost accreditation a year after. (Mountain State University). Can anyone recommend how to handle this with HR if they can’t verify one of my degrees? Thank you!

Doing the best I can to get into an M7 MBA program. I’ve been working at my company for 3 years and am planning on asking for letters of recommendation from my supervisor(s). However, over the past year I’ve really started hating working here. The hypocrisy is very very real. I feel I am doomed to stay to at least get rec letters (which might not be worth it if they aren’t solid ones). Worth staying or look for other positions? What other sources of rec letters are viable?
