You know you are getting old when policemen look young, they say. These days the expression could apply to MBAs just as much as to law enforcers.
The Sloan school at MIT has joined a growing number of top US business schools which have begun to accept graduates with no work experience on their MBA programmes.
Although the typical Sloan MBA has five years of work experience before returning to the classroom, they are being joined by classmates coming directly from undergraduate studies, who are just 22 years old.
MIT Sloan is following in the footsteps of other top schools such as Stanford, the Wharton school at the University of Pennsylvania, Chicago and Harvard Business School, which also enrol these inexperienced students.
