The Deferred MBA

What is the Deferred MBA?

Typically, MBA programs need applicants to have around 2 to 5 years of work experience at the time of application (Why? -The main reason for this is that MBA programs focus a lot on class participation and peer-to-peer learning). However, the deferred MBA allows candidates in the final year of their undergraduate degree to apply to the MBA program. If selected, the candidates can gain relevant work experience for 2 to 5 years (depending on the deferral period) and then join the program.

What are the advantages of the deferred MBA?

  1. Convenience – Often for candidates working full-time, it becomes a tad difficult to prepare for the tests and focus on the application process. These programs provide the advantage of allowing the candidates to complete these while they are still in their undergraduate programs.
  2. Focus on professional goals – Having the coveted MBA seat confirmed gives the candidate peace of mind allowing them to purely focus on their professional journey.
  3. Financial planning – It becomes easier to manage financial debt that can otherwise easily build up. It provides the opportunity to save for your MBA program in a planned manner.
