Thinking of an MBA next year? Consider applying THIS YEAR

March 25, 2020
Given growing COVID-19 social, health, emotional, and economic impacts, we have received some questions on how MBA applications may trend this upcoming application year. For those still considering an MBA this year, we expect the level of competition to rise (likely significantly) due a lower number of spots vs. prior years. Many schools, including HBS, are reserving spots in next year's class for those who cannot start in the fall. More important is the impact of a slowing job market. With COVID-19 and the resulting economic ripple effects already changing applicants’ job prospects in 2020 and beyond, we expect a growing number of people to look at the uncertainty ahead as a good opportunity to return to school for two years.

Recruiters have reached out to other candidates with compelling offers. Still others are re-evaluating their priorities given changing life circumstances. With this in mind, we wanted to share some insights from these conversations and provide some resources as you navigate your own career choices over the coming months.
