    You want a second MBA? The fact that you are currently enrolled in an MBA program and are thinking about applying to another one in the U.S. won’t help you very much. Most admission officials will be puzzled by your desire to get two MBAs. They will assume you failed to get the job you wanted with the first go-round and therefore be skeptical of your ability to get the job you want with the second degree. The only way you can break through this issue is to get a jumbo GMAT score that will help a school that over indexes scores for ranking purposes. Wharton loves high GMATs, but because of the reason above, they aren’t going to buy this, no matter what. My …

    Hi Mr. Second MBA, Julie-Anne Heafey here from mbaMission. Well, it’s super hard to evaluate anyone’s chances for a Wharton MBA 5 years down the road, especially without a GMAT or known employment history, but I agree that the fact that you already have an MBA is already going to be a pretty giant hurdle. Some US MBA programs actually will exclude you from consideration. You’ll want to double check the policy of each program on your list when the time comes (things change). Right now, Wharton is a school that does not exclude applicants who already have MBAs, but you really would need to explain both what you’d get out of the program and what you’d contribute to it…and both should …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 5%

    Mr. Second MBA, it’s Lisa Cummings of Stratus Admissions, and a former Sloan adcomm. The real question to me is why are you in an MBA program now if you know you will want second one in just a few years? I imagine it makes great sense to you but it will require a serious explanation to your target schools. In my many years at Sloan, we very rarely saw a candidate with a prior MBA degree, almost always that first degree was international and it always gave us pause. You are coming from a very competitive demographic, you don’t want anything to raise red flags yet you will have a big one. If you really are serious …

    If you are not planning on applying until 2025, a lot can happen in five years, but given the current snapshot, this profile is not yet competitive for Wharton. Also, for anyone who already has an MBA or MBA-equivalent degree, the rationale for getting “another” MBA will have to be exceptional and compelling.

The Community Currently Rates The Odds At: 5%

  • 5% | 1 month ago

    You have no chance, like zero chance at an M7. You made a poor decision the first time around with your current MBA and you’re young with no real experience. No chance.

    They say nothing’s impossible, but in your case you’ll have to convince top schools that 1. you need two MBAs, and that your first one wasn’t a good option (difficult); 2. your experience in private wealth management is better than corporate / consulting / banking / private equity (difficult); 3. your lack of experience in US won’t be an issue; 4. they should pick you out of an over represented demographic; 5. You’d be a good candidate for your goal of BB banking and can somehow make it into venture (nearly impossible without pre-Mba experience) All very difficult, but you have several years to prove me wrong
