Business School (MBA)
Bates alumni interested in pursuing business school typically work for at least a couple of years before applying since business schools tend to favor applicants with work experience. Occasionally students will enter business school straight from Bates, but typically these students have gained significant experience through internships or volunteer endeavors.
The article and websites below provide a starting point to learn about admission requirements and the application process, as well as compelling reasons to pursue an MBA. Alumni who have attended business school are another great resource. Alumni contact information can be found through the Online Directory (on the Alumni page of the Bates website) as well as through LinkedIn.
