Hi akanksha1411 welcome to the AMBS thread.

As is stated in the website "If you are an international applicant, we strongly recommend that you apply by Round 5 if you wish to be considered for a scholarship" , so it would not be to late to have a scholarship. On the other hand, as it has been mentioned in this thread AMBS has received a lot of applications and few scholarships are available but I will not think that you don't have chances to get any scholarship in my opinion.

Regarding the essays topics, here they are : https://www.mbs.ac.uk/study/mba/full-ti ... n-process/ and you have to expand the Admissions Essays and Presentation title that is below the Application Guideline in the link. Please let me now if you could find it and I will help you.

Finally, advice.. well of course not an expert here but my advise would be to focus on your career progress and achievements, they want to see that you had a quick professional progress in your career and what makes your career stand out in terms of responsibilities, skills , manage people , etc. Remember that you don't have a maximum amount of words but on the other hand you cannot deliver a very extensive essay. Make sure that is easy to read , in my case I asked a lot of people to read my essay to make sure that they didn't get bored.

Regarding your aspirations, I tried to be as specific as possible , in my case it helped a lot that I already know precisely what job I want to land after the MBA and how can I get there.

Finally, the presentation. Here you can get as creative as you want to. In my case I just put some pictures of my family, friends, activities and hobbies . Easy and simple.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any further questions!

Hi thaks25 !

I do not believe it is too late to apply . It is true that MBS has received a lot of applications but that does not mean that getting an admit in R6 would not be possible.

Regarding tips and suggestions, I have already shared my suggestions in a previous reply on this thread .

All the best,
