In some cases, age comes with benefits. And when applying for an MBA program, work experience matters a lot. Acceptance rates at top business schools can be higher for older professionals.

Popular Types of Online MBA Programs

One of the most difficult parts of the MBA application process can be taking standardized tests. Some applicants just do not "test well", or do not have the time to prepare and sit for a GMAT exam. Conveniently, there are several business schools offering GMAT waiver online MBA programs, where the GMAT exam requirement is waived for qualified applicants.

One of the common impediments to enrolling in an MBA program is the test score requirement. The GMAT is widely considered one of the most difficult standardized entrance exams, and many students, especially those who don’t excel at the test-taking process, may rather avoid taking it altogether.

Among aspiring entrepreneurs and leaders, obtaining a master’s of business administration (MBA) is seen as a crucial stepping stone towards a successful career in the business world. Reputable MBA programs provide students with valuable knowledge and hands-on training to help them thrive in the job market upon graduation.

MBA Concentrations

Online MBA candidates have many options for specialization. There is a wealth of MBA concentrations and dual-degree programs available. Prospective students can specialize in areas such as entrepreneurship, finance, technology, sports management, organizational leadership, marketing, and healthcare, among others. Explore the various concentrations offered by accredited institutions.
