I am 22 years old looking to pursue a part-time MBA at UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business. Although I have recently graduated with a BS in Information Systems, I have a total of 5 years of full time system analyst/implementation work experience. The part time MBA program at Haas projects an average of 7 years of full time experience and the median age of participants is 30 years old (based on the stats on their website). Due to my accomplishments at such a young age, I've been featured on many media outlets, including Forbes. I think I may have a unique enough story to be seriously considered but since this is my first time applying, I'd appreciate any insight! Am I shooting too high? Would I be somewhat competitive? The reason I am aiming for the part-time instead of the full time MBA program is because my current role as an enterprise software consultant is vital to a software implementation for a client. My current position is well aligned with my future goals of having my own software consulting firm and I'd like to continue to receive experience in my current role while pursuing my graduate degree.
Any responses would be appreciated!
