Question

I am a 22 year student with an excellent academic performance. Last friday I took the GMAT and scored 710 pt. After finishing my bachelor studies next year in march, I would like to continue my studies in England.
During my studies, I worked part-time for the chairwomen of the social democratic party in the German Parliament in Berlin. Furthermore I made serveral internships and worked for one year in Poland (social service) in an international organisation. Before that, I worked as an freelance writer for a local newspaper (for three years). How do you evaluate such work experience?
Dear Sirs, I am a 22 year student with an excellent academic performance. Last friday I took the GMAT and scored 710 pt. After finishing my bachelor studies next year in march, I would like to continue my studies in England. I consider to apply to your school, but there are some unanswered questions.

Do you think that it is worth to apply? Would it be enough, to send you my final transcripts by the beginning of May? I would send you an up-to-date transcript by the date of my application.

Thank you for your answers!
Yours faithfully
Philipp

Answer from The Open University Business School:

Philipp

I'm not sure that your questions are about studying with The Open University Business School but I will answer them in that context.

The OUBS MBA is open to students aged 27 or who have considerable managerial experience. OUBS enrolment does not require GMAT, it does require work experience. It is not necessary to live in England to study with OUBS as courses are taught by supported distance learning. The sort of work experience you mention would not necessarily be relevant to OUBS study. All that said we do offer a Certificate and Diploma which would give you the necessary background management knowledge and form Stage 1 of the OUBS MBA.

For further details about courses and how to apply, visit our website www.oubs.open.ac.uk.

Answer from Warwick Business School:

Hi Philipp

Thanks for your enquiry. It sounds like you have a really interesting background. We have a work experience requirements of a minimum of 3 years for our full-time variant of the Warwick MBA, and we place a lot of importance on evidence of career progression during that time. This work experience must also be post-graduation. Your part-time work and early writing career would be of considerable interest to us, if it were combined with at least 3 years' employment of a suitable nature.

I hope that you will consider us again once your have met our minimum work experience requirements. In the meantime, do please visit our website, www.wbs.ac.uk/mba for more details.

Answer from Cranfield:

Hi Philipp

I regret that we would not consider the work you have done for entry to the MBA programme at Cranfield. Despite your excellent academic background, we would require two and a half to three years postgraduate work experience.
