Tougher for traders to get into a top MBA program?HF
Several people I've talked to told me that it's tougher for traders to get into a top MBA program. Main reason is that admissions officers assume that you are not a great trader if you're applying to business schools, since superstar traders don't really need to get an MBA. Also, trading does not entail leadership, project management, and other attributes that top MBA programs seem to covet.
How accurate is this assessment?
