    Hello Anuj,

    Thanks for approaching Learnhub for your queries!

    Well the average work experience required out of MBA applicants is close to 4-5 years in US. But still there could be many Business schools which you can consider. It depends on nature of your work experience too.

    For admissions you need to consider following important points:

    1. You need to take GRE/GMAT and an English Proficiency test TOEFL/IELTS
    2. The application deadlines close in three different rounds. First round application deadlines close by October or so. Second round closes in December-January and third round closes in February-March. You need to track application deadlines of Universities you are interests in separately.
    3. Applications need to worked with utmost care. Each application requires some essays or a statement of intent to be completed.

    Post your queries further to get information on any specific queries.

    As far as top tier Business Schools are concerned, you can check the following:

    Top 100 Business Schools in US

    For details on the admission process you must have read the article above.

    Tuition fees varies widely across business schools. But to give you an estimate for the same tuition fees could be be somewhere between $45,000-60,000 and living expenses close to $15,000 per year.

    You can select business schools keeping in mind you financial budget.

    Moving ahead as soon as you plan to take up the standardized tests mentioned above you can get in touch with us for further guidance. we would be happy giving you suggestions on schools you can consider.

    Hope to hear soon from you!
