In for R1.

Does anyone feel like the essay is more like an essay question on the mid-term exam for some international business course? Moreso than an application essay?

Should we start another thread for analysis of this question?
I'm curious about the degree to which we can/should tie in our own experiences in our analysis of business leadership in an increasingly globalized economy.

Hey all,

I'm still iffy on whether i'll eventually apply to Darden, but I thought it was worth mentioning that I called Darden's admissions office and was told there will be more essay questions later.

That being said, I agree it sounds more like a mid-term essay question than an admissions question. I'm not a huge fan of it.

I feel there should be a personal connection to the perspectives as we are asked for OUR perspectives on leadership... but the second part- linking globalization to a leadership perspective is the true depth of the question.
There are so many ways to look at the scenario... My Questions are :
- Should we be looking at leadership at workplace from firms top management`s view
or the leadership at my level of work execution
- the effect of globalization on the firm which indirectly affects me OR the direct influence of globalization on my views?

Thanks a lot for the input MrTunes -
The essay question is well in tune with Dardens Tag line "The Darden School of Business improves society by developing principled leaders for the world of practical affairs" :idea:

Hey Bakfed, have read a lot of your posts. Thanks for joining in on the thread. I am sure all the 2012 applicants will have a lot to ask. When will you be starting school at darden? I have a lot of questions about the school , will make a list and post it.
