  is there a 'typical' mba?
   
 
The fact is that there is no such thing as a 'typical' MBA. Statistics show that students from diverse academic backgrounds such as commerce, science, engineering and humanities, with or without work experience, get into B-schools.

  Educational Background of Students in Top B-schools  
 
The selection criteria at all B-schools differ. Different B-schools have students from different academic backgrounds. Some have work experience, some don't. So what kind of students do B-Schools prefer? This is by far the most debated topic. Here are a few statistics that might clear a few apprehensions.

These statistics have no direct implication on who gets selected into B-schools. These statistics just tell you the percentage of students from various fields, working/non-working who are presently studying in various B-schools.

The percentage of students who finally get selected often reflects the percentage and background of applicants. Hence, if the number of engineers who join an MBA program appears high, it is because a very high number of engineers take the CAT.
