Essay Question - 1
At ISB we value diversity as it enhances both the in-class and out of class learning experience. Tell us how would you contribute to the same?





To explain this essay question, let me share some details about mode of learning at top-tier business schools. A majority of your learning comes from your peers. While the classes are led by the faculty, its rarely a one-way learning. There is a fair bit of discussion where students chip in their own perspectives, examples and thoughts based upon their work experiences. In this context, the diversity of class becomes important to enrich the quality of class discussion and thus improve the quality of learning.

With this in mind, ISB wants to know how you will contribute: 1. in the class and, 2. outside the class.

What can you contribute? Your specific experiences, knowledge about a subject, special skills, expertise, and personal capabilities.

Within the class, you could contribute the above mentioned in class discussions, in project work and in group assignments. Your experience and skills will also be valuable during the consulting projects and in other experiential learning opportunities. You could also help a faculty member with some research or do an independent project under him.

There are several ways to contribute outside the class. For instance:
1. In clubs - you can take a leadership position or work towards the club objectives as a member. You can even start a new club.
2. In governing the graduate student association
3. Organizing competitions, conferences, seminars and other events
4. Leveraging your industry network in career services

Eventually the adcom wants applicants who will leave the b-school better than what they inherited. Think deeply about how you can contribute in this context.

To give a well thought out/researched answer, I would suggest talking to current students and alums to find out how they are contributing and whether what you propose to do will be valued.

For the essay execution, I will suggest you give some relevant examples from your past experiences where you have made an impact. Use this example to demonstrate that you will make similar impact at ISB.

Hey guys,
Need a quick help.
I had applied for isb ylp last year but didn't make it through the interview. Now i am applying for isb eeo.
However, when i am trying to create an account for the same, the following 3 options pop up:

1) I am a first time applicant to the PGP/Early Entry Option*
2) I had applied last year through the Early Entry Option / PGP
3) I had applied to the PGP / Early Entry Option / YLP before the last academic year

I mailed ISB and they said i should go for 3rd option. However, i dont understand why option 1 is not correct for me, as i applied to ylp , but i am a first tine applicant to eeo/pgp.
TIA

Hello akshay_kuchhal

You need to select option 3 because of 2 reasons-
1. You are still a re-applicant and to be considered one you will need to select that option (since you will need to write a re-applicant essay)
2. More importantly, you heard it straight from the proverbial horse's mouth (AKA ISB), so there shouldn't be any confusion.

Hi

I had selected ISB as one of the schools to which my score was sent. Now how do I proceed further?

Will I get a mail from ISB that my score is received by them and I can proceed for the application accordingly? OR should I start applying separately for this?

If its the first case, do i have to pay the application fee?

Let me know how to proceed.

Hi,

You can start the application process. You don't need any confirmation from the school. In case you want to confirm whether they received your score, just drop an email to the school!

Of course, you would be required to pay the application fee if you don't fall under the category of fee waiver. Please go through the ISB website for more details on application fee and waiver.
