I'm a BBA student graduating within a year and I've been doing some planning/calculating, and according to my current rate of progress I should be able to get my MBA by the time I'm 25/turning 26.
My question is: am I rushing it? Is this too soon?
My fear is that I won't have enough work experience to go with my degree, in comparison to other graduates. I am already the youngest person I know (at least in my school) finishing up the BBA and my peers have noticeably more work exp. than I do because they are older than me.
I have obviously never done a masters degree before so I don't really know exactly the caliber of people that I will be studying with, but my assumption is that they will be in their late 20's/maybe 30, with lots of work experience. My biggest fear is graduating and not having enough work experience in comparison to other people with the same level of education, making it very hard for me to get a job.
To other people who have actually got higher level education, how much does work exp. matter vs masters degree? Is 25/26 too young for a masters degree graduate (business)?
