Irrelevant/unrelated work experience, big problem?


timmy.fx

I'd like to pursue an MBA in the near future. I have a BA in Political Science but my work experience is totally irrelevant: working in a small hostel for a few years. Would this restrict my chances of getting into a decent program, or is there still hope if the application itself is very high quality?

Decent is a very relative term. What are your goals? In a small hostel you could have have wide, valuable experience. Will you take the GMAT?
