MBAs with no work experience are jokes and will have a hard time finding a decent job.
If you're the hiring manager, would you take the guy whose been working for ten years, has a great track record, or an unproven 24 yr old who thinks he's special because he went to school for two extra years instead of getting a job?
This, of course, is different than a JD. A JD gives you practical knowledge to be an attorney that you can't get from UG. It allows you to be licensed to do a job. An MBA just adds to your knowledge and allows you to network, providing you with no tangible skills.
I went to a top B school, and planned on returning for my MBA after a few years... then I worked with a bunch of retarded MBAs and realized how worthless the degree really was. And talk about over saturation, lowly office managers in BFEs all over the country have them thanks to online courses.
So, if I get into somewhere like Wharton MBA with zero job experience, what you're saying is that I shouldn't go?
If they'd even take you- Wharton MBA's average business experience is 5-6 years. What kind of job would you want when you got out? Because even with an MBA from Wharton, no company's going to say "Hey, you should be our VP!"
No, you're likely to get a slightly better than entry level job. MBAs are degrees that you're supposed to get after you've been in the real world for a time. You go out, work, learn, then come back and learn how you can do things better.
The Wharton hypo would be fine if you realize that you won't be top dog upon graduation. The MBA will be impressive after
your first job or two.
