MBA with only 2 years of work experience


TMoney19
I am looking for a good MBA program in the USA for next year. But I see that many business schools look for people who have 4-6 years of work experience, and I only have 2 right now. Is there any chance for me? I would rather not wait another year. Does anybody have any suggestions for business schools that require less work experience?

Oh wow, thanks! So, it depends on how much work experience I will have by intake? Is that how the business schools judge?

That is one of the important criteria, but not the only one.

If you're on the lower side of the work experience range, it helps to have something else that helps offset it: a stronger GMAT score than the average, for instance, or "better" work experience, with strong, demonstrable leadership and management potential.
