what did you learn from your most spectacular failure..(200 words)?

I have spectacular personal failures that have taught me A LOT! not just personally but it also shaped the way my career moved ahead.
However, I cant really think of a business failure that can be characterized as spectacular..

background: I am University Assistant professor, work ex of over 6 years and want to pursue an MBA to get into University Administration and then in the long term want to open my own school.

Can someone suggest me, how did works at Cambridge ?!

They don't seem to imply a business failure, I guess any failure will do :) unless this is too personal, unethical, etc

I'd guess they'd love personal details. They want to know who you are, what drives you, and how your personality is reflected in your business choices.
