FROM NandoParrado - Current Student: Application #1: GMAT
“The GMAT measures how good you are at taking the GMAT“. This was the opening line of the book that I used for my preparation years ago. The sentence resonated with me because it highlights two crucial points: the GMAT is a unique … Continue reading →

FROM NandoParrado - Current Student: Application #1b: TOEFL
The requisites for English Language testing are my only complaint about the MBA application process. The rules simply do not make sense to me. For most schools, an applicant is exempt from taking the TOEFL (or IELTS, or PTE) if and only if she has an undergraduate/graduate … Continue reading →

FROM NandoParrado - Current Student: Application #2: School Selection and Research
The key to a successful application is to articulate a clear fit between your professional/personal path and your target school. In other words, your application needs to demonstrate two things. On the one side, how the MBA program will represent a solid bridge between your past/present … Continue reading →

FROM NandoParrado - Current Student: Application #3: Profile Building
A critical phase of the MBA application, concurrent to researching your target schools, is “researching yourself” and building your profile. What are your unique traits? Where do you want to be in five years? And in twenty years? How would your personality, experiences, passions … Continue reading →
