FORMER HARVARD INTERVIEWER - MBA APPLICATION TIPS [#permalink] New post 22 Oct 2013, 12:06
As a former Harvard interviewer and a Harvard grad myself, I wanted to share some inside knowledge about the Ivy League admissions progress to help anybody considering applying to a top Ivy program.

My tip is:

"TRY TO THINK GLOBALLY ABOUT YOUR FUTURE"

If you look at any of the MBA essay prompts, from this year or recent years in the past, you will see that a lot of the questions for many of the schools ask about your future career plans; your future goals and dreams.

Very understandable, as each school wants to see that you have a well thought out plan of action: that getting your MBA now, is the next logical step to fulfilling your long-term professional vision.

However, it has been my experience that the applications that are going to stand out, are those that take a GLOBAL approach. An international focus. The MBA applicants that can demonstrate through their essays that they are thinking beyond the confines of their own city, or country, or region, and have what I call a "far-reaching" plan for their career, product, parent corporation, or entrepreneurial business.

GLOBAL is the new catch-phrase.

We are obviously no longer living in the day where a country's economy is self-contained. With social media and the internet, everything is now world-wide, and world-related and business, more than ever before, has taken on an international connectivity.

This understanding needs to be reflected in your MBA applications, and will make you stand out as an applicant. The idea that you are fully up-to-date with this trend, and understand the international, global significance of any business venture, small or large, public or private, and thereby have the ability to think on a global, international scale.

This is especially true for those of you who speak an additional language, as that, too, will give you an edge in the ever expanding international business market.

So, if you can demonstrate that you have a far reaching vision, and if you can demonstrate in your essays that you perhaps have additional language skills and experience with other cultures, you will, as an applicant already be way ahead of the game!

If you have any questions I can answer, I am always happy to speak more: www MBAIvyLeague (dot) com
