Hey guys,

With all the business decision posts going around I was wondering for a non-high finance person like myself, what would be the "sweet spot" in terms of work experience be. I understand other factors are as or even more important (i.e: GMAT) but just examining the work experience portion of it, what would be a good number?

I'm currently at a Top 10 undergrad business school graduating in a few months and will be starting in Internal Audit at Bank of America Merrill Lynch through a associate rotational development program (Corporate Audit Analyst Program) after graduation, so apart of me says that (assuming I'd stay in the same job) that I would need 6-7 years of WE to have some sort of chance, but I am not sure if that's the case. If anyone can give any feedback, guidance, or suggestions on this matter it would be greatly appreciated!

3-6 years, depends on your goals and where you are. If your program is 3 years long, that would be enough if you have a good enough story.

Yeah I would say typically 4-5 years is a good sweet spot for a person

I'd aim for 3-6 years, with 4-5 being the sweet spots IMO.

For those that are recommended years, is that 4-5 years at the time you apply or when matriculating into a program?

When I said 4-5, I was referring the the number of years of work experience at matriculation.

The years we recommended are for matriculating. So you'll apply after 3-4 years of work experience roughly for any application round.
