Why Work Experience Can Be Important When Applying to an MBA Program

December 2017

Prior work experience provides you with valuable insight into the requirements of the business world and therefore when seeking to pursue an MBA study program work experience is relevant. The Admissions committee looks to admit all-rounder candidates into their program and the type of working experience that you have will set you apart from other desirable candidates, while additionally providing you with the opportunity to learn from your experiences. Here's why work experience can prove to be beneficial when applying to an MBA program.

Applying for MBA

Hands on Experience

Internships or prior work experience can be useful in helping you gain hands on exposure, as it shows your relevance to the program. This practical experience helps you better analyse the various teaching styles of a business program, making it an integral part of your study abroad experience.

Increases Your Chances of Acceptance

In addition to your academia, the type of working experience that you have can also increase your chances of gaining an admit into the University of your choice. The admissions office looks to admit applicants that can demonstrate an array of essential MBA skills, and having prior experience proves that you have what it takes for an overseas MBA program.

Advanced Skill Set

The work experience that you have provides you with an idea on the specialization that you wish to major in. While some candidates wish to further develop their knowledge and skills in a particular subject area, others wish to develop skills that will allow them to switch between careers. Therefore, suitable work experience can provide you with a rewarding skill set.
