Essay Questions



Required Essays: We require three short essays that can be completed on your online application, but feel free to answer these essays in a word processor and then copy and paste to your online application.

  • Short Essay #1 – What are two ways in which you are eager to contribute to the Illinois community, inside and/or outside of the classroom? You can discuss specific electives, programs, extracurricular activities, community service, etc. (1,000 character maximum, including spaces).
  • Short Essay #2 – What differentiates you from others? You can discuss character traits, special talents, etc. Feel free to be creative and write about anything that you think the Admissions Committee will find interesting (1,000 character maximum, including spaces).
  • Short Essay #3 – What are your career goals after graduation? (1,000 character maximum, including spaces)
    We require one full essay to be uploaded with your online application as individual documents.

Full Essay #1 (Personal Statement) – Please upload your personal statement that answers questions 1, 2, and 3 in one essay. Take time to reflect and consider the direction you want to take your professional career. Remember to write a cohesive essay, complete with a thesis statement, supporting paragraphs, and a comprehensive conclusion (maximum of 750 words, double-spaced).

  • Please briefly discuss your career history to date. What capabilities have you gained through your professional experience?
  • What skills or knowledge will an MBA education give you that you currently lack, but that you need to realize your goals?
  • What specific electives, programs, extracurricular activities, etc. at the College of Business will prepare you to realize your goals?


Optional Essays: You can use this optional essay for one of the two purposes below. If you opt to write an additional essay, you will need to upload it as a document to your online application. Please note that no preference is given in the evaluation process to applicants who submit an optional essay (400-word maximum, double-spaced).

  • Please address any concerns you may have in your application. If, for example, you do not believe that your test score or grades demonstrate your true capabilities, please explain. Also, it is appropriate to discuss any gaps in your academic career and work experience or any extenuating circumstances in your profile about which the Admissions Committee should be made aware.
  • If there is something that you would like to highlight that you have been unable to discuss in other areas of the application, you can do so in this essay.

Hi Mate ..!!ayan5409
I will be applying to Illinois MBA next fall.
I am currently on the research phase.
One thing that is worrying me is the class size.
It has been decreasing every year.
This year its only 50.
Is it precisely due to the competitiveness of the program.

P.S=> Illinois MBA is one of Programs that i would love to get in.

Regards
Stone Cold

stonecold yes the class size has been decreasing lately but that's purely to focus on the incoming class and provide them with quality education. The student-teacher ratio is one of the best for Illinois MBA and you get to be in one of the Big Ten campuses.
Moreover, the school subsidizes your consulting projects abroad, your career fair trips, and your study treks across US. This is only possible if the student body is tuned as per the endowment available! Further, the career management center (rated as one of the best across the country) knows you personally, helps you with your endeavors and makes you land in one of those jobs you aspire to.

Given the return you get on your investment, I strongly feel its worth the hard work you put in to get into the school.

P.S.: I'm not too sure but I believe the class size is going to hover between 50-55 for some time going forward. You can contact the school directly to get further insights on the class size and the approximate student body coming year.
