“When should I apply?” That’s one of the first things students ask when planning their MBA application process. The highly personal answer depends on both strategic and tactical considerations.
The Decision is Part of Your Career Strategy
The “when” question is strategic because an MBA application requires asking yourself big questions about your career and where you want to go next. Often these decisions depend on the experience you already have. Remember, the admissions committee is trying to determine your value-added to your future stakeholders: classmates, faculty, and alumni.
