For applicants to
Harvard’s MBA program, the MBA application advice – and the essay question
itself – hasn’t changed much in years. However, a commitment to a single
question does not mean that admission committee staff are fine with answers
they’ve seen a hundred times before.

Deadlines for
application to the 2020 Harvard MBA class are:

  • Round
    one:
    September 4, 2019
  • Round
    two:
    January 6, 2020

The essay
question HBS poses for MBA applicants hoping to matriculate in 2020 is the same
one they’ve been using since 2013:

“As we review your application, what more would
you like us to know as we consider your candidacy for the Harvard Business
School MBA program?

Applicants who
think a trite answer will suffice are sure to be mistaken. Harvard has earned
their reputation as one of the top MBA programs in the world. The admissions committee
for the school is not likely to be fooled by “What I did with my summer
vacation” caliber responses.

In fact, the HBS
admissions committee themselves refuses to assign a word limit to their essay
prompt, assuring applicants that “We think you know what guidance we’re going
to give here. Don’t overthink, overcraft and overwrite. Just answer the
question in clear language that those of us who don’t know your world can
understand.”

Want to create a
winning essay for your HBS application? Our absolute best advice is not to
rush. Making the decision to attend business school shouldn’t be a snap
judgment, and if you’re willing to invest the time and effort, you should have
a real sense of what you’ll contribute and what you’ll get out of the program.

Writing the Joint
Programs 2019-2020 HBS Application Essay

There aren’t many
HBS applicants who will be asked to complete an additional essay, but if you
are applying to the
Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Harvard Law School,
or Harvard Kennedy School, you will be asked to complete an additional essay:

“How do you expect the joint degree experience
to benefit you on both a professional and a personal level? (400 words)

Although it doesn’t leave
a lot of room for explaining, this is likely one of the most straightforward
essays that HBS asks for. The best answer is the simplest: why, instead of
merely obtaining a standard graduate degree, have you put int the additional
time and effort to specialize?
