Mr. 2nd MBA

About Me:

A finance and accounting professional with six years of experience in the shipping and financial services after my MBA. With no prior experience before the first MBA, I struggled to get into the right position and right industry where I wanted to work. Few years down the line I learned that I could have done better in another industry. A second MBA would provide that launchpad.

  • mbaMission Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hi, Mr. 2nd MBA, this is Julie-Anne Heafey from mbaMission. Hmmmmm. I agree that many top MBA programs either outright bar or frown upon applicants who already have MBAs, but some light Googling suggested to me that Michigan Ross might be an exception to this rule. Definitely go to the source – call or write Michigan Ross (and your other schools) and ask!

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling Odds Assessment: 5%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. You have some wonderful extracurriculars and solid work experience, but unfortunately very few programs admit applicants who already have an MBA. To them it looks like you’re just “trading up” and they don’t think you need the education as much as someone who hasn’t had it yet. I would advise checking with each program to see if they’d even be open to someone getting a second MBA, even if the first was from another country. Perhaps you can try to make the case that the first one did not prepare you to reach your goals or become a leader who can make a significant impact.
