Work Experience- MBA (ISP) FAQ

I have no work experience but would like to apply to your MBA (ISP) program. Can I apply?

We do not have any minimum work experience requirements. There are many motivations for pursing an MBA degree and we recognize that our MBA (ISP) candidates come to our program at different stages of their career. Many candidates are using the MBA (ISP) program to jump start their career while other candidates come to us with a desire to improve their theoretical knowledge and move upward into management. We welcome applicants with or without work experience. Applicants without work experience will not be at a disadvantage during the admissions process.
If you do not have any work experience, we highly recommend that you pursue the co-op option.

I have over ten years of work experience. Is the Goodman MBA (ISP) the right fit for me?

The MBA (ISP) program is diverse and includes MBA candidates with over 25 years of experience to students right out of undergrad. This creates an extremely enriching learning environment where, because no one has the same academic background nor the same amount of experience, everyone is able to learn something new that challenges their experience and their currently held viewpoints. No matter what your background, you will be challenged by the Goodman MBA (ISP).

There are many reasons that the Goodman MBA (ISP) might be the right MBA program for you. As an AASCB accredited business program, the MBA (ISP) will give you the credentials and the knowledge to move higher in your organization. If you do not have a business background, it will give you legitimacy and technique by teaching you the foundations of good business. If you have been out of school for a while, the MBA (ISP) will offer you a chance to upgrade your theoretical knowledge and practice your business English skills. Additionally, if you want to change from one field to another (marketing to finance, for example), the MBA (ISP) will give you the knowledge and graduate degree needed to make that change.
