Post-MBA goal: "Getting into a rotational program"??? [#permalink]
02 Jan 2013, 12:46
I am a career changer. I had been working in a small company(only a dozen employees) as a general manager.
I am applying for MBA, and want to get into a leadership development or rotational program after MBA.
in my essays, i put "getting in to a rotational program" as my short-term goal. I also write about how i am interested in general management, and interested in retail or consumer product industry. I also listed one or two rotational program (such as amazon, intel, etc) as examples.
I already got rejected by two schools, so i started looking back into my applications and try to improve.
is my short-term goal too vague and general? if so, any suggestion to improve it.
It might be too vague... I think "to get into a rotational program" or better yet "leadership program" can be a good goal, if you limit the industry.... so either Hi Tech OR Supply chain, but not either/or. And you should be specifying which industry you are aiming for and WHY as well ( we are hoping it's cause you already have some experience in it)
sorry to hear about your dings dude... if you want to send over your apps for a ding analysis (not free unfortunately) you are welcome to do so, and we can dig in deep. wish you all the best on the rest of your schools. _________________

Thanks for your feedback.
I have done some more research, this is what i come up with:
Short-term goal: Rotational Program in Retail Industry. Reason: I am the general manager of a small retail chain (5 stores, with a dozen employees)
Interested job function: Vendor management or retail product management (can i do either/or? since they are similar functions) Reason: I led the project to develop the merchandizing department in my company, building relationship with new vendors and increase the product variety. (will include this in one of the essays).
