To old for a FT MBA


hansint

Short question :)
Would my age of 37 and/or 15 years of work experience disqualify me to admission to the FT mba at INSEAD or IMD?

In practice, almost certainly at Insead (assuming you are not the beneficiary of a huge donation) and perhaps, but not solidly, at IMD.

Take a look at http://www.find-mba.com/board/6256/last/#last for some better fit schools and http://www.find-mba.com/board/6256 for a discussion on IMD.

hi Duncan.

Thanks...Too bad.
Still might apply, but will keep in in that it's going to be an executive MBA then. Thought it would be easier to just get it over with in 10 months :) And save myself 37k in fees:)
Also as I work as a freelance IT consultant and I afraid it might be hard to combine this with any in-company projects for example. I would not receive any sponsorship. Any thoughts on that?

There are some schools where the full time and part-time MBAs are similar in price, like London Business School and Ashridge. Maybe look at those.

I will look into it. I would prefer a top-10 school, but the LBS schedule for instance would be a Friday/Saturday every other week. This would be a difficult commute / combination with work for me. The INSEAD one week per month schedule would be more convenient to me. But 95k is an awful lot of money......

Look at the LBS EMBA stream in Dubai, and the EMBA Global?

The Kellogg EMBA programme is good value at WHU and even cheaper at Recanti.

Hi, have you filled the imd screening form? they will give you a very detailed review of your profile

Just my 2 cents: when you want modular emba and don't pay 80-90000e :-): HEC, Oxford, Cambridge are 1 week per month; Cass is 4 days once a month.
Cranfield is 8 days every 2 months.. recently is climbing down in the ranking but I don't think its quality is questionable and for 33000pounds it looks very good value for money

For Kellogg you could be still on time for the next September intake: they have an interview day on July (which is likely to be last one, if I remember well). But you must rush.

Duncan, do you know when the next FT emba ranking will be released?

Late October. Mauro makes some great suggestions. I had a client with a very similar profile to yours get in to the Cambridge EMBA recently.

I forgot Warwick and Essec-Mannheim :-)
