Why We Ask MBA Interviewees for an Additional Essay [#permalink]

FROM Sloan Admissions Blog: Why We Ask MBA Interviewees for an Additional Essay
All MBA interviewees are asked to answer one important question before interviewing at MIT Sloan:

“The mission of the MIT Sloan School of Management is to develop principled, innovative leaders who improve the world and to generate ideas that advance management practice. We believe that a commitment to diversity, inclusion, equity, and well-being is a key component of both principled leadership and sound management practice. In 250 words or less, please describe how you, as a member of the MIT Sloan community, would work to create a campus that is welcoming, inclusive and increasingly diverse.”

I want to shed some light on why we ask this question and what we value in responses.

First, why do we ask this question?

MIT Sloan is a mission-driven school.  In fact, that’s one of my favorite things about working here! MIT Sloan students are smart and collaborative, grounded and inventive. Together, we cherish inclusivity and embrace unique differences because we know that building this culture is critical to fostering world-changing ideas.

Over the years, I have seen how our MIT Sloan culture has been enriched by the incredible diversity of people and ideas coming together in one place. Now, as our Admissions Team builds the next class of MBA students, our goal is to admit students who will complement and contribute to our dynamic culture.

We love talking about our mission – in fact, we will likely bring it up during your interview. This essay gives you time to contemplate the culture you are looking for in a business school and prepare to have a deeper conversation about it when we meet in person for your interview.

Second, what are we looking for in responses?

This question is all about fit. Reading this essay gives our Admissions Committee a unique opportunity to learn more about you, beyond your resume and written application.

We’re looking to find out how your values and goals align with MIT Sloan. We are curious to find out how you articulate your individuality and best characteristics. We love seeing how you have impacted the community and culture of organizations you have been a part of and we look forward to using our interview-time to dive deeper into your responses.

To write an essay that stands out, I recommend learning as much as you can about who we are and what we stand for. Explore our website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, student blogs. Think about what matters to you in communities you have been a part of and how you have chosen to make an impact on people. Show us how you’re already living out the MIT Sloan mission.

Should You Apply to the MBA Round 3 Deadline? [#permalink]

New post 15 Mar 2018, 10:00
FROM Sloan Admissions Blog: Should You Apply to the MBA Round 3 Deadline?
Apply by April 9th for your final opportunity to join the MIT Sloan MBA Class of 2020!

When it comes to the MBA Round 3 deadline, the single most common question I hear from applicants is “Should I apply Round 3 or wait until next year?” If this question is on your mind right now, then this post is for you!

My answer to the above question is “If you are now ready to pursue your MBA, it’s not too late! Apply Round 3.” I’ll explain:

Three years ago, we decided to add a Round 3 application deadline for a variety of reasons, one of which was  because we wanted to accommodate applicants who become ready to apply later in the traditional MBA admissions cycle. In fact, we were initially surprised by some of the circumstances that led people to apply later in the year.

For example, we have had some applicants apply in R3 because their companies had recently been bought by larger firms. Because of these unforeseen events, they felt it would be a good time to make professional transitions. Another past Round 3 applicant shared that his department was being eliminated, and so he decided to pursue his MBA earlier than originally planned.

The Round 3 application deadline was designed to give these individuals—whose professional or personal circumstances have unexpectedly changed—an opportunity not to have to wait another year.  So if this sounds like you, and you are now ready to begin your MBA studies next fall, I encourage you to apply!

A few other notes about Round 3:

  • Traditionally, Round 3 has our smallest pool of applicants, so this can be a great opportunity for strong candidates to stand out.
  • We do accept applicants in Round 3.
Still have questions or concerns before submitting your application? Send us an email or register for the Online Chat with Admissions on April 4th.

FROM Sloan Admissions Blog: What’s Next for Round 3 MBA Applicants?
Many things make applying Round 3 unique. One of the biggest things: the accelerated timeline. Here are the dates to keep in mind:

Image

Please note, our Admissions Committee will not be traveling for Round 3 interviews, so all interviews will take place on campus in Cambridge.

The next month will certainly be a whirlwind, so here are some ways you can prepare:

  • Read my recent blog post about the MBA pre-interview essay question
  • Check out my interview tips video on YouTube
  • Brainstorm the questions you plan to ask us about MIT Sloan
  • Brace yourself for an exciting few weeks!
Good luck!
