Here's the W.P Carey School of Business essay prompt,

" Should your career path need to shift from its intended course, how will you leverage the skills acquired during your degree program to ensure success on your new path? (250 words or less) "

i have some doubts,

"degree program" : I assume it is referring to the MBA degree , and not the undergrad degree. Am I right ?

Basically it is an alternate career goal question?

Yes, this is referring to the MBA degree. Basically, you want to have a good backup plan if plan A doesn't work out. While you should talk about skills you will learn in B school, it is also good to connect that with your past experience and/or interests.

If you have questions about your goals, send me a note. Scott@personalmbacoach.com
