Tips for maximizing career and life success [#permalink] New post 17 Sep 2014, 14:00
FROM Kenan- Flagler Admissions Blog: Tips for maximizing career and life success
Image
During orientation, Markus Saba (MBA ’93), senior director of global commercialization for Lilly Diabetes at Eli Lilly and Company, addressed the Full-Time MBA Class of 2016. He offered very practical advice that, if heeded, will position students to maximize their MBA experience. Here are my takeaways:

Hold yourself accountable for achieving your goals by writing them down.

My professional background is in PR and communications, so I am no stranger to curating and completing a to-do list. However, I had not previously taken the time to explore the significance of maintaining a list, except as a mechanism to keep myself organized.

Mr. Saba extoled the practice of writing down your goals, indicating that it ultimately makes you more likely to fulfill them and predisposes you toward career success. He made me realize that the implicit value in writing things down is the sense of accountability it creates. A simple task, idea or even a lofty goal becomes both tangible and achievable once you can visualize it, and thus you feel obliged to go after it.

Involve others in your short term and long-term planning process.

Mr. Saba also indicated that the career and personal benefits derived from involving others in your planning process can be significant. After countless sessions with UNC Kenan-Flagler’s Career Management Center and feedback from my peers, I have re-examined my career and life goals thoroughly. Do I really have no location preference? Is a career in brand management exactly what I want?

Involving others when considering these important questions has helped me to gain perspective and become more confident in my direction. As a result, I have also found it easier to isolate the opportunities that match my career interests. I can see that it will be beneficial to involve future managers, peers and other stakeholders as I revisit my short and long-term plans to ensure that I remain aligned with my intended trajectory.

Recognize which resources you have and utilize them.

Though five additional hours in a day would be nice, learning to work around time limitations has motivated me to take advantage of the resources available in the form of classmates, professors, alumni and others within the UNC community. Just the other day, I rallied my study group to help me go over finance problems and they made themselves available immediately, despite competing obligations.

I know my two years in the MBA program will pass by extremely quickly, but ultimately time will not be an obstacle to accessing these resources in the future. Mr. Saba revealed that post-MBA, he continues to entrust a UNC Kenan-Flagler professor as an advisor on his most significant career and life decisions. That is the kind of relationship I think we should all seek to build during our time here.

No matter where you happen to fall in your MBA journey, I challenge you to leverage your intuition and determine how these insights can positively impact your approach to future success.

Hi,

Does UNC give any relaxation on its application process, with regards to recommendations etc? I don't think 'senior executive' recommendation would be a true reflection.. can anybody guide?

P.S: I have already mailed on MBA Outreach id but they haven't reverted.

Thanks

Would all applications at other schools be withdrawn right away if you got accepted in the early action round? Would it be right away on the decision date, which is 15 December?

I need some guidance.
I think I'll be able to apply to only one out of Tepper and UNC. Is it true that one stands a better chance of scholarship at Kenan-Flagler than at Tepper?
Any down-sides of UNC? Is there a big difference between the rankings?

I'm a 28yo Indian male applicant. Any guidance is appreciated.

Any current students on this thread? Can someone at UNC share, which of the Admissions directors brings the Indian applicant profile to the Admissions Committee? (http://www.kenan-flagler.unc.edu/admissions/mba/requirements/admissions-committee)

AFAIK - the Early Decision at KF is not binding as Duke's as in they don't tattle to other schools if you don't accept. I think it is because the EA deadline results come out in mid-december along with other school results.

I decided to confirm with the admission committee and this is the answer to our question;

For Early Action, you'll have to pay a non-refundable deposit of $2,500 when you accept our admissions offer. If you decide to attend a different school after that time, you will only lose the deposit. You will have up until Jan 5th to accept the admissions offer and pay the deposit. We ask you be confident you want to come to UNC but have no way of holding you to it (except for the deposit).

Hope it clear for all of us :-D

Conquering the MBA admissions essay [#permalink] New post 06 Oct 2014, 13:00
FROM Kenan- Flagler Admissions Blog: Conquering the MBA admissions essay
Image

We asked our MBA admissions team to share their tips and advice for navigating the admissions process – starting with the essay. Here’s what they said:

DO:

  • Tell your story. Our MBA admissions team reads thousands of essays each year. To make your essay memorable, tell us why you want to attend UNC Kenan-Flagler and how your past experiences have shaped you as a professional. Show us your personality through compelling, dynamic examples or a personal story that illustrates your points. A successful essay gives our admissions team a sense of who you are and why you are a good fit for our program.
  • Take a team approach to proofreading. Punctuation errors are incredibly easy to make, but also incredibly easy to fix. Proofread your essay for spelling, punctuation and grammar – then ask a colleague (or two) to do the same. A fresh set of eyes will often catch errors you might have missed.
  • Stick to the limit. Be concise and stick to the stated maximum length. These limits are listed for a reason – don’t ignore them.
DON’T:

  • Recite your resume. The essay is the first chance for our admissions team to learn about your background and professional experience. Use examples to highlight your experience. Do not add a few words to the bullet points on your resume and call it an essay.
  • Write a generic essay. Just as every applicant is unique, so are the business programs at each school. Do not just change the school name for each application. We want to know who you are and why you want to attend UNC Kenan-Flagler.
  • Skimp on proofreading. Submitting an essay riddled with spelling, punctuation and grammar errors is the equivalent to wearing pajamas to your admissions interview. Make a good first impression by thoroughly proofreading your essay and ensuring you reference our school, UNC Kenan-Flagler, properly.
Our UNC Kenan-Flagler full-time MBA program is currently accepting applications for its Class of 2017. Learn more about our program and start your application today. And don’t forget to mark your calendar with important admissions dates and deadlines!

Submitted for Early Round.
People who received fee waiver Dipankar6435
I can still see that my waiver is not applied to the application after submission. I selected the "Pay by check/waiver" option.
How many days after the submission can I expect this waiver to be confirmed so that I can go ahead and schedule my interview?
