How old are most people applying for MBAs? Is 30 an ok age or would I be the grandpa of my MBA classmates?

Hi, I think the average age is around 28. That means that at 30 you are definitely not too old to be getting an MBA:) There will be people who are older than you, and also people who are younger. Hope that helps!

Also, I'm sharing this free resource with you - Smartly - it's a site to prepare for business school first term before classes start. You can sign up for free to take courses in accounting, microeconomics, accounting, and finance.

I think 27 is the average age, so you will not be a grandpa :)
