Hello,

I am looking for a special MBA programs that does not require work experience. I was doing some research and found one or two colleges like Rollins- EAMBA & want to know is there any other college that has similar programs.

I completed my UG program in Engineering and wanted to study in US. I will be not working there after my MBA program hence want to do this type of program.

Kindly help me with the colleges available.

Thanks in advance.

Why the rush? Most MBA applicants have at least two years of experience and many have four to six years of experience. This makes them more competitive for jobs after school and helps them contribute more and learn more during their program. Without any experience you probably won't have anything to base your learnings on. Take a few years and find a job you like and use that time to put together a strong application package.

Here's a list of some MBA colleges in USA that accept freshers.

But rather than focusing on the list, do read the full article to be aware of what you are getting into. It's a path fraught with risks.

I know the difficulties. Im basically from a business family & i wanted to learn something regarding business before starting to take responsibilities. That is the reason i need to go for a MBA without work experience

Interesting and that does sound like a more legitimate reason to straight to business school. However, I would still wait a few years. Go to the family business (or preferably a different firm so you can have some outside perspective) and make a bunch of mistakes that you can learn from. Then go to school so you can learn what you should have done the first time around, then go to the family business. Getting into a better school will be more beneficial to your family business then going to school right away.
