The essay questions for McCombs MBA for application cycle 2016-2017 are out

ESSAY 1


The University of Texas at Austin values unique perspectives and cultivates a collaborative environment of distinct individual contributions. It is the first day of orientation. You are meeting your study group, comprised of five of your classmates from various backgrounds. Please introduce yourself to your new team, highlighting what drives you in your personal and professional life.

Select only one communication method that you would like to use for your response.

1. Write an essay (250 words)

2. Share a video introduction (one minute)

As per Stacey Kammerdiener, Senior Full-Time MBA Admissions Officer, these are the salient points you should keep in mind while attempting this question

a.There is no advantage of an essay over a video and vice versa.

b.Think this is your personal elevator pitch and work on creating a great first impression

c.Include both your personal and professional interest and talk about why you are unique and interesting.

d.Tell about what you are passionate about and why


ESSAY 2


Based on your post-MBA goals and what drives you in your personal and professional life, why is the Texas MBA the ideal program for you and how do you plan to engage in our community? (500 words)

This is where you show that you have done extensive research on the McCombs MBA program and how life is as an MBA Student in the campus.

“By the time we read your essays, we have already seen your resume, scores and basic elements of your application. In this answer, we need you to expand upon the bare facts and convey to us why you are the perfect student for McCombs and how you will become an active contributor in our community.” - says Stacey in the blog post.

Additionally she advises to tackle the question on two parts.

“… why the Texas MBA is the ideal program for you…”
