Would any one know what the average / recommended age to study for an MBA is? Are there any resources to look at for this?

Many b-schools publish the range of candidates' ages as part of the MBA information. The information is also referenced in some MBA directories/rankings sites if you click through to the individual MBA profile pages.

More important than age is quality and length of experience that you bring to the course. Different b-schools have different criteria, but it is generally the case that you will get more from the course the more management experience you bring with you.

On my course at Imperial College I'm the second oldest at 39 in a class of 47 full-time people. The youngest are around 25, the oldest 52. I reckon the median would be around 30. Usually a few years' experience of work first is a good idea: Imperial claim they insist on 4 or 5 years.

10+ years of work may really help you relate to some of the issues that come up in the course, though - you'll remember stuff that has already happened to you, so it'll be easier to absorb apply the ideas than if you had learnt them first and seen them in real life later. But I'm sure at 30+ (unless you've spent years in academia) you'll get the benefit.
