I start the third year of my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education Studies BA (Hons) this September. I started this degree with the hope of going on to complete a PGCE in Primary Education but I have lost interest and teaching is not something that I want to pursue. I know there are other fields related to children that I can go into with this degree (social work, play therapy, etc), however, I am much more interested in going into business management.
I have looked at the masters degrees available at my current university and none of them require previous experience and the entry requirements specify a 2:2 or higher in any discipline. The two that I'm most interested in are: International MBA or Management and International Business (MSc), however, I'm worried that I will struggle writing a personal statement with my lack of experience.
I'm a parent and have not had the time to work during my current degree, though I have completed block placements these were related to children. I am currently looking for a customer facing role that will hopefully help me gain more work experience and develop my interpersonal skills to support my application, my question is what other opportunities could I explore to add to my experience? I am happy to volunteer but I am unsure where to look and what I'm looking for, and if there is anything else I could get involved in that would be useful?
Sorry for the long post!

Afterwards though, the MBA will be pretty worthless to employers without about 5 years professional experience, so the MSc will look better on a CV.
And most respectable MBA programmes won't admit you unless you have 3+ years professional working.
