Average age of investment banker MBA
I'm currently an undergraduate and expect to get an MBA. I want to complete a stint as an i-banking analyst for 2 years before continuing on to get my MBA. However, I've noticed that most MBA candidates at the top schools have somewhere between 4-5 years of work experience before attending business school. I don't want to work for 4-5 years before attending business school. Do most I-Bankers on the ibanking -> MBA path work after their analyst stint and before attending business school? Is a 2 year stint at an I-Bank considered sufficient for acceptance into a top 5 program (assuming 3.7+ gpa and 710+ gmat)? Is this too common of an application for the top 5 programs? How much would chances of acceptance increase if I spent another 2-3 years in PE/HF/other financial role before applying for business school?
