I like this post =)

""I have friends who are making that much but are eager to give it up for an MBA.""

$140K USD is a good salary, but I agree - some people are eager to give it up for an MBA.  I don't have $140K USD a year, but I'm so willing to give what I make for an MBA.

LZ, I do believe that EMBA is suitable for you with your background.

32 is not too old, I know fresh MBAs who are older than 35.

The annual income of US$140k (RMB 1M) is not too much either, I have friends who are making that much but are eager to give it up for an MBA.

On Business Week or some other MBA forums, I have seen a young American guy who's running his business with a $200k annual revenue got rejected by all the programs he applied to. He was kinda mad so he posted his application PDF file online and asked for feedbacks such as why HBS rejected him twice. Some people just suggested him to put aside his ego and be honest about why, fit, and career goals. (Sorry, can't find the link...)

I have never been in any MBA programs, but I can certainly tell you that age and income are not the most important factors.

Perhaps you can apply for some first, after getting some offers, ask yourself whether the MBA itch is still there, then decide which one to go. Even if you end up not going, you can still learn a lot about yourself during the application process.

Thanks a lot! Yes, I'm preparing GMAT now and will see how it's going on... Some ideas from other people here are also quite helpful anyway.

楼主, 我关注这个贴有段时间了, 忍不住上来说下我的拙见, 权当抛砖引玉吧。

首先, 你这种要追梦的勇气我还是心有戚戚焉的。 30多岁的人要做这种drastic change, 一定是有梦想, 有passion 的人, 人生能有几回搏, 所以我applaude your courage and motivation.  

但是正因为你已经30+, 不管做什么事的机会成本就大了很多, 不像小朋友们可以不想那么多做起来再说, 更要从长计议, 全面分析。

看你前面写的objectives, 你显然是不想通过读MBA 进行career switch 的, 而MBA的主要功能之一就是帮大家找工作。 如果你志不再此, 花几百万人民币去读一个学位是否值得呢?  当然我知道很多人去读MBA 想要学习金融管理知识, 与来自世界各地的同学network, 但如果仅此两项的话是不是有更efficient alternative that you can explore?  

从文化的角度上来讲, 能讲外语(且不说讲的口语如何, 用词有多地道), 吃西餐和能真正融入当地的文化还是有很大的差距的。 很多在国外呆了十几年的人在说起历史, 艺术, 体育的话题时尚且很难与当地人完全共鸣, 哪怕你去读个两年而不是一年的MBA, 想在两年的时间内有substantial improvement 也是很难的。 真正的break 所有的cultural barrier, 绝非两年, 甚至更长时间能够achieve 的。

你如果想去游学一下, 做些BD, 很可能有更便宜, 更efficient 的alternative, MBA can be overrated in your case.  

Just my two cents.

LZ,

Actually, do you want an MBA because of fame? Just curious.

大家不用纠缠几句评价,很多主观感受都是见仁见智的。

楼主和我年龄一样,想来也是生活阅历比较多的,如果有读书的想法,先考出GT来,然后就容易定位和选择了。别人也才更加容易帮助你衡量选择的道路的可行性与可能的代价和收获。

年龄虽然不是绝对标准,但也能部分折射一个人经历/阅历等等,其实在这里我除了想获得大家如何看待MBA的想法之外,也是想看看有没有跟我年龄相仿,有同样或类似concern的网友都有一些什么样的想法。我本人在大多数事情上是一个很有主见的人,尤其是在生意上有时候也要做一些艰难的决策。只是说在做decision-making时需要一些必要的supporting information.

嗯,我和你年龄相仿,但是其他方面差异比较大,看看别的类似情况的朋友有什么高见吧

不用这么冲吧,每个人做决定都有自己的考虑角度,没必要这么说话。
