    Is it possible to do an MBA straight after a degree. I am finishing a 4yr degree this summer, I have a job for after graduation but would like to do an MBA in a years time or as part time even. I have researched it but most seem to want 3 years wait.

    It's only likely to be possible at a place that is more concerned with your cash than your career. It also serves no purpose because few if any employers will recognise any value in an MBA that doesn't sit on top of at least 3 years professional experience. An MBA isn't just a masters level business degree, it is specifically a masters level degree that adds to your previous business experience.

    Highly unlikely in The UK. Most MBAs these days are accredited by AMBA or EQUIS, therefore it is a requirement that you will need 3 years working experience after being awarded your Bachelors.

    An MBA that would pull any weight would unlikely to let you in until you've had senior management experience.

    Well not many that have more credibility/utility than getting practical business experience. Business is largely a practical activity, especially in the early stages of a career.
