I don't see why not... you'll be applying to MBA rotational programs, there will likely be people in their late 20s and early 30s. You also come in at the Senior FA or Manager level. I guess it just depends on the company and what they're looking for. I have no doubt that a lot of them won't care if you're the best candidate.

Agreed. Congratulations on getting into the MBA program.

congrats on the program
i think that while you are a little on the old side, it shouldn't be too much of a problem
after all it's not like theres a disclaimer on your age

happy to give advice; no asking for referrals please

Yes, they definitely are. I'm at a F100 firm with a highly competitive finance rotation program. I see people from 21-40 in different rotational roles that scale them up a level for every rotation. You aren't too late. Congrats on the program!

From your background in retail, have you considered commercial rotational programs? Perhaps those might interest you as well if you havent looked into it. Just throwing an idea out there and congrats on the MBA.

You will have to pardon my ignorance - what exactly do you mean by commercial rotational programs?

This is where you become a product manager or marketing manager. This will be moving away from the finance field but can be very exciting and rewarding, especially if you want to get into business development within the company. My company has both a commercial and finance rotational program.

yes. i personally know guys who have come out of the army to do it so they're around 28/29

Would you mind elaborating on your background in retail? Genuinely curious.

I'll be 31 coming out of my program, and thus far it doesn't seem to be an issue.

You should be fine. Just don't over-emphasize your age during recruitment/interviews. Let them just assume you are younger than you actually are.
