I graduated from my undergard program in 2009, now completing my master degree in the US. I am an entrepreneur and already have a mid-size company. But the problem is many schools do value full-time work experiences. What advice will you give me to persuade those admission staff that I am mature enough to fit the MBA program.
I have some ideas but open to discuss.

Hey there! This is a great question, and one that is very difficult to answer without seeing any specifics about your future work experience. But here is the best way to think about it—they assume that you are too young. They assume that you don’t have the maturity that it takes to sit with a bunch of people who are older and more experienced than you are. So your best advice will be to prove that you ARE that mature! Tell stories in your application about the time when you negotiated with a man who was twice your age. Tell stories in your app about the time that you led a team of five people, all of whom were older than you by ten years. J See what I mean? You know what their fears are—that you are too young, and too inexperienced. To immature. So in your stories, RESPOND to these concerns. Tell stories that paint you to be very wise for your age, and very comfortable leading teams and dealing directly with older people. After all, that is what life will be like if you get into an MBA program…
I hope this helps—and good luck! Feel free to send me an email at our website if youd like more info about me or my company. You can just Google our company name below.
