No official age limits, no. It is more unusual to go in your late 30s or older, but people definitely do it! As you start to get to late 30s+ more people join executive MBA programs instead of regular MBA programs - do some research and see what might be right for you.

I'm a student in Babson's Fast Track Program, which is like an eMBA. The average person in my cohort is in his early 30s; I'm the second youngest at 27. Two of the people I appreciate the most in my cohort, Elaine and Ron, are in their fifties. Elaine has spent her whole career in the tech industry, and has so much insight to add to our case studies because she was there. Ron is a professor of dentistry, and is using the MBA to improving healthcare education.

Based on their level of enthusiasm and participation, I imagine those two are also getting a lot out of the program. With the majority of the learning coming from the experiences of other members of the cohort, I would highly encourage you to apply to an eMBA program.

Best wishes,

I am a 30+ year applicant. I was told you must have a very strong application to enroll at certain schools not as much at others (in Europe for instance age is less important). So no clear cut answer but it is definitely worth the try.

The best one to go for if you are 30+ is, go for Executive MBA or correspondence MBA

Yes, you are never late to learn. The spirit of learning lifts the bounds of age.

However, some formulas of learning have an official code attached. So is the case with MBA studies.

At 38 years of age, an Executive MBA will be the best, if you are primarily looking at growing your profile. An EMBA is designed for the senior-level professionals. This is usually the age.

However, if you are looking for a change of stream a fast track (10-12 months) full-time MBA will be a better bet. Unless the adcoms finds you helplessly compelling, you may find some rigidity for age in the US schools. Europe is more lenient on the age front.

Therefore, you have rightly put that there is no boundary for studies. Its just about the right selection. Depending upon your aptitude, your career plans, the time in hand, your financial discretion, choose the program that is the best fit. Just make sure, it’s a reputed course.
