Georgetown McDonough 2009 MBA Essay Questions

My comments are in bold.

1. Briefly state your short-term and long-term career objectives. How have your prior professional, academic, and personal experiences influenced your career plans? Specifically, how will your participation in Georgetown's MBA Full-Time Program contribute to your career objectives? (Limit: 750 words)

This is a straightforward, connect-the-dots MBA goals question.  Click on the link for tips on writing an essay that both distinctly reflects You and demonstrates your knowledge of Georgetown.

2. In your own words, how do you define leadership? Please provide a specific example (professional or personal) of a time when you embodied the characteristics of a leader. Be sure to highlight the challenges you faced and the results you achieved. What areas do you wish to develop in order to become a more effective leader? (Limit: 750 words)

Interesting leadership questions! There are several critical elements to this question: Your individual example of leadership, your definition of leadership, the challenges you faced, the impact you had, and how you would like to develop further. Don't feel compelled to respond in exactly the order given in the questions; just make sure you answer all elements.

3. What is the most significant change you have made to any organization with which you have been recently affiliated? Please describe how you identified the need for change and how you managed the process of implementing change. What were the results? (Limit: 750 words)

This question asks "the most significant change," not many changes or even two changes. It is asking for another example of your impact on an organization. It is probably going to be another leadership example. Again, make sure you answer all elements of the question. A great answer would take an entirely different situation than that discussed in #2.

List in order of importance all community and professional organizations and extracurricular activities in which you have been involved during or after university studies. Indicate the nature of the activity or organization, dates of involvement, offices held, and average number of hours spent each month. (Limit: one page)

Please feel free to provide a statement concerning any information you would like to add to your application that you have not addressed elsewhere. For example, you may comment on your academic record as an indication of your potential for graduate management education, or you may explain any gaps in your work history. If you are not submitting a letter of recommendation from your current supervisor, use this space to explain why. Similarly, if you are not currently employed full-time, use this space to provide information about your current activities. (Limit: 500 words)

If you don't need to address any of the issues suggested above, please see "The Optional Question: To Be or Not to Be."
