Tuesday Tips: NYU Stern Essays and Tips for 2024-2025 [#permalink]

FROM Stacy Blackman Consulting Blog: Tuesday Tips: NYU Stern Essays and Tips for 2024-2025
[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/NYU-Stern-MBA-Essay-Tips-1-2-1080x1000.png[/img]

Are you getting ready to apply to [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/mba-application-advice/nyu-stern/]The New York University Stern School of Business[/url]? Today, we’re sharing our tips for the NYU Stern essays. The goal is to help you create a positive impression through your application materials. Stern’s MBA admissions team says it seeks “students who best exemplify[url=https://www.stern.nyu.edu/experience-stern/about/values] Stern’s core value: IQ+EQ[/url]. Our admissions committee takes care to select those who demonstrate strong intellectual ability, superior interpersonal skills, and a desire to create value for business and society.”

The parameters of IQ and EQ that are important to Stern MBA are academic, professional, and personal. The admissions team will evaluate your academic ability mainly through your GMAT and GPA. However, the NYU Stern essays play a crucial part in your application strategy. In particular, they give insight into your career goals and personality.

See this [url=https://mbainsight.com/nyu-stern-school-of-business/]Q&A with the NYU Director of Admissions[/url]

This year, NYU Stern requires [b]one EQ Endorsement[/b] with your application. A second endorsement is optional.

• The endorsement must be from someone who knows you personally and/or professionally and can act as a persuasive advocate of your EQ strengths.

• More details can be [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzLwWSMv5HQ]found here[/url] and on the NYU admissions website.

NYU Stern Essays
[b]Short Answer: Professional Aspirations

(150 word maximum, double-spaced, 12-point font)

What are your short-term career goals?[/b]
Instead of answering why an MBA is necessary for your goals, NYU simply asks what they are. However, while many people seek an MBA degree, NYU wants to invest in those who can use it most effectively. Therefore, make sure you have a reason for an MBA from Stern to achieve your goals.

Post-MBA short-term goals ideally are both achievable and aspirational. An MBA from NYU Stern will open professional doors for you. As a result, you should use the NYU Stern essays to show you are ready for the opportunities.

First, think about your past work experience, your MBA education, and a logical short-term goal. Ideally, your goal pulls from your recent work experience and the skills you will gain in the NYU MBA program. Also, use specific examples if space allows.

Finally, with only 150 words to use, you should focus on your career goal and basic background information. Then, ideally, the rest of the application will fill out your holistic ambitions.

[b]Essay 1: Change: _________ it

[/b]
(350 word maximum, double-spaced, 12-point font)[b]

[/b]
[b]In today’s global business environment, the only constant is change. Using NYU Stern’s brand call to action, we want to know how you view change. Change: _____ it. Fill in the blank with a word of your choice. Why does this word resonate with you? How will you embrace your own personal tagline while at Stern? Examples:

[/b]
[b]Change: Dare it.

Change: Dream it.

Change: Drive it.

Change: Empower it.

Change: Manifest it.

Change: [Any word of your choice.][/b]
In a repeat from previous seasons, Stern asks a question about your attitude toward change. Given the events of the past few years, it seems appropriate to focus on how you embrace change. First, this is a question about feelings. Second, it asks you to use branding techniques to communicate. As a result, there is both substance and style to this question.

If you feel daunted by choosing one word to explain your feelings about change, start with the substance of the essay. That means considering how you have embraced change and made it work for you. Did you need to pivot careers due to a layoff? Have you learned more about yourself as a result of social changes? What did the past several years teach you about the world?

Finally, this essay is an opportunity to communicate. Because Stern describes the school’s brand call to action, you should think about your brand. For example, if you are the kind of person who leads a team through a vision, you might choose Change: Inspire It. Or, if you are more practical, you might use the branding: Change: Build It. In conclusion, your goal is to choose the one word that speaks to your style and approach as a leader.

[b]Essay 2: Personal Expression (a.k.a. “Pick Six”)

[/b]
[b]Describe yourself to the Admissions Committee and to your future classmates using six images and corresponding captions. Your uploaded PDF should contain all of the following elements:

[/b]
[list]
[*]
[b]A brief introduction or overview of your “Pick Six” (no more than 3 sentences).[/b]
[/*]
[*]
[b]Six images that help illustrate who you are.[/b]
[/*]
[*]
[b]A one-sentence caption for each of the six images that helps explain why they were selected and are significant to you.

[/b]
[/*]
[/list]
Note: Your visuals may include photos, infographics, drawings, or any other images that best describe you. Your document must be uploaded as a single PDF. The essay cannot be sent in physical form or be linked to a website.
A favorite American idiom says, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” In this essay, you have six pictures to use. To get started, think about how you will choose the images to communicate with your future classmates and [url=http://blogs.stern.nyu.edu/full-time-mba/full-time-mba/picksix/?utm_source=sternmba&utm_medium=website&utm_campaign=blog_posts&utm_content=pick_six&_ga=2.184177454.985933456.1718996217-1701198528.1712932891]Stern MBA admissions[/url]. Think about the story you want to tell. Is it a collage of your life or a progression? How do the pictures work together to tell the story?

While the medium can be anything, your content is the vital part of this essay. First, brainstorm the information you want to convey. Then, think about your unique personal qualities and what your friends and family value most in you.  Next, ask yourself how you would want your classmates to see you. Finally, what information would you share with a new friend?

Building a narrative through images.
Your six images may be all personal or all professional (not recommended!), demonstrate deeper meaning for you, or be aspirational and future-oriented. You might also want to show a journey you have taken or a person who is important to you. Or you could show a vision of your future desires and plans.

Isser Gallogly, associate dean of MBA admissions, has said that this question is similar to the kind of post you might share on social media to tell your friends about your life. As a result, images are more and more important in digital communication. Therefore, this essay asks you to use images as the primary form (drawings, photos, infographics, or any other images you choose).

The one-sentence caption for each image will also be an opportunity to contextualize. For example, if you show an image of a happy family, what does that say about your past or future? Who are the people to you? Finally, if you use a picture of a place or time, words can explain its importance to you.

[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/48072762722_851d931561_k-734x413.jpg[/img]

[b]Essay 3: Additional Information (optional)

[/b]
(500 word maximum, double-spaced, 12-point font)[b]

[/b]
[b]Please provide any additional information that you would like to bring to the attention of the Admissions Committee. This may include current or past gaps in employment, further explanation of your undergraduate record or self-reported academic transcript(s), plans to retake the GMAT, GRE, Executive Assessment, IELTS or TOEFL, or any other relevant information.[/b]
This optional essay allows you to explain anything that is not clear in your application. For example, maybe your academic record shows any grades of C or below in a quantitative course, or your GMAT is low. If so, you will want to explain that you are academically prepared. And, any explanation should include the reasons you will perform strongly in your academic courses at NYU.

Additionally, if you have a gap in work experience, this is the place to provide context. Therefore, describe what you were doing during the interval. And, take the time to explain but not excuse. Finally, remember that you never need to use the optional essay if the information in your application is straightforward on its own.

FROM Stacy Blackman Consulting Blog: Tuesday Tips: Michigan Ross MBA Essay Tips 2024-2025
[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/Ross-MBA-Essay-Tips-HEX-FFCB05HEX-00274C-1080x1000.png[/img]

The University of Michigan’s [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/mba-application-advice/michigan-ross-school-of-business/]Ross School of Business[/url] is a top-ranked MBA program that provides real-world opportunities for students. Ross MBA essays are about demonstrating you fit in the culture. Visiting Ross or learning about the program through current students, alumni, or faculty would be helpful. Review our Ross MBA essay tips and show the admissions committee you are intellectually curious and able to accomplish your goals.

Listen to [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/blog/b-schooled-podcast-episode-156-spotlight-on-michigan-ross/]B-Schooled Podcast Episode #156[/url]: Spotlight on Michigan Ross

Part 1: Ross Experiences in Action-Based Learning (REAL)
At Michigan Ross, we believe the best way to learn is by doing. In our Full-Time MBA Program, you will put your skills and knowledge to the test in real-world situations with real stakes.
How will this learning environment benefit you, and how do you plan to contribute to the action-based learning experience? (300 words)
This question is your opportunity to show that you have done research on Michigan Ross and the specific benefits of the MBA program. How will the Ross MBA teach you what you need to accomplish your career goals (outlined in Part 3)?

The Ross Action-Based Learning experience is more than an internship or co-op that other MBA programs offer. Ross gives you an opportunity to start a real business, work in an established company, invest millions in assets, or do real-world consulting. If you are changing careers, this is an opportunity for experience and learning.

Finally, after you consider the specific ways you will benefit from REAL, add your contributions. Then, look at your work experience prior to your MBA and what skills you can share. For example, if you have a unique industry background and network you may be able to find new companies consulting engagements.

[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/Ross-School-students.jpg[/img]

Part 2: How will you make an impact at Michigan Ross?
Michigan Ross is proud to support a community of leaders and impact makers. As a future member of this community, we want to know more about who you are and what drives you. Please choose 1 of the following prompts to tell us more about what makes you stand out beyond your academic and work experience. List the prompt you are answering at the top of your response. (200 words)
[list]
[*]
What makes you unique?
[/*]
[*]
Can you provide a specific example of how you’ve overcome a personal challenge?
[/*]
[*]
What makes you excited to get up each morning?
[/*]
[*]
Describe a time when you made a difference in your community or with an individual.
[/*]
[/list]
Take note that these short answers are about getting to know you personally—not your collection of accomplishments. Ross values community engagement, passion, and persistence. The admissions committee says clearly: “The most interesting and insightful responses to these prompts remain when applicants share personal examples.”

For example, you may want to write about an important extracurricular activity that is unique. Or maybe a challenge you overcame or a life event that highlights something different about your background. The questions are short and purposeful. The experiences you describe should be clear and stand alone.

Looking at each Ross MBA essay question, the first asks how you are unique. Consider what sets you apart from others and what unique qualities you will bring to Ross. It can be a personality trait, interest, or activity. Perhaps it is your background or your personal history.

Then, the second option is about a challenge. Again, the question is specifically personal. Perhaps you had a family member who went through an illness or a struggle. Or, you personally experienced hardship. Describe how you turned the situation around and overcame it. The third option might be an opportunity to talk about your values and background. It reads as a place to highlight what drives and motivates you on a deeper level than your career.

Finally, the last option gives you the opportunity to share your community involvement. For this question, you could describe when you made a difference to an organization or person or advanced an important cause.

Part 3: Career Aspirations
What is your short-term career goal, and how will Ross help you achieve it? (200 words)
The Ross admissions committee has often said the best essays are focused. Remember, the “why” is the most impactful and differentiating aspect of each essay. Therefore, Ross is asking for a succinct career goal and then an explanation. Make sure you draw the how into this essay as well, considering what you wrote in Part 1 about the Ross experience.

Many MBA candidates struggle to refine a career goal to just one. Of course, it’s possible to change your goals once you start attending school. However, clear goals tend to lead to success. If you have several career interests, take the time to choose one. Consider how your career goal makes you feel. Can you envision the company you will work for? What about your day-to-day tasks?

Precisely imagining your goal also helps with how Ross will help you achieve the goal and why you are passionate about this path. Also, why are you a good fit for the role? Specific examples are always welcome in an essay on your career path.

[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/Michigan-Ross-interior-734x491.jpg[/img]

Optional Essay
Is there something in your resume or application that needs a brief explanation? Appropriate uses of this essay would be the explanation of an employment gap, academic outliers, choice of recommender, completion of supplemental coursework, etc. You may use bullet points where appropriate. (250 words)
Take it directly from former Ross admissions director Soojin Kwon: “The optional essay should only be used if there’s something in your background that requires a brief explanation. It’s not the place to submit an essay you wrote for another school or to tell us how much you love Ross.”

Think about anything that may raise questions while reviewing a resume, transcript, or recommendations. Typically the kinds of gaps that raise questions are significant gaps in employment (more than a few months), anything below a C on your college transcript (particularly in quantitative coursework), and low test scores.

Tuesday Tips: Tuck MBA Essays and Tips for 2024-2025 [#permalink]

FROM Stacy Blackman Consulting Blog: Tuesday Tips: Tuck MBA Essays and Tips for 2024-2025
[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/Tuck-tips-1-1080x1000.png[/img]

The Tuck MBA essays are out, and we have the latest tips for you! [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/mba-application-advice/dartmouth-tuck/]The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth[/url] has a small student body and a rural location, combined with world-class faculty and academic focus.

The admissions committee has spent considerable time developing a clear [url=https://www.tuck.dartmouth.edu/mba/blog/a-closer-look-at-tucks-admissions-criteria_aware]set of admissions criteria[/url]. Through their Tuck MBA essays, successful applicants will show they are: smart, accomplished, aware, and encouraging. Overall, Tuck is looking for applicants who show a pattern of behavior that demonstrates these qualities.

For example, you would describe a pattern of accomplishments in your essays and resume. And then, you would show awareness when you explain how you view the world in your essays and interviews. Finally, you could show you are encouraging by describing a time when you have challenged and developed others.

Stacy Blackman Consulting can help you put together successful Tuck MBA essays. Our team of experienced admissions professionals, like [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/consultant/maureen/]Maureen[/url], who is a former Tuck admissions officer, know exactly what Tuck is looking for.

Find even more inspo on [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/blog/b-schooled-podcast-episode-81-spotlight-on-tuck-school/]B-Schooled Podcast Episode #81[/url]: Spotlight on Tuck

Tuck MBA Essays
[b]Essay Question #1: “Why are you pursuing an MBA and why now? How will the distinct Tuck MBA contribute to achieving your career goals and aspirations?”[/b]
Being aware is one of the four criteria for successful Tuck MBA essays. To show awareness in this essay, spend some time considering your goals. Also, think about why you think an MBA is the right choice. Finally, consider why Tuck is the right place for you. As Patricia Harrison, Director of Admissions, Evaluation, and Yield, writes: “Spend time and effort identifying why an MBA, and especially the Tuck MBA, aligns with your goals.”

Once you have crystallized your goals, you must articulate them in this essay. Make sure you have researched Tuck thoroughly. Use that research to show why Tuck is the right place for your next step. Being aware also means seeing the opportunities available at Tuck. Thorough school research is important here.

As Harrison writes: “Show clarity and awareness about how Tuck uniquely advances you towards your goals.” Making appropriate goals for yourself, considering your background and the MBA, also shows awareness.

[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/Tuck-interior-WOW-campaign-734x489.jpg[/img]

[b]Essay Question #2: “Tell us who you are. How have your values and experiences shaped your identity and character? How will your background contribute to the diverse Tuck culture and community?” [/b]
Ensure you have spent time learning about Tuck and why you think you fit with the community. This essay is the perfect place to talk about how you are encouraging and aware. How have you spent time developing people in your life? And what will you do to bring that quality to Tuck?

Harrison advises, “We want you to confidently bring your whole unique personal self, including your strengths and growth areas, to Tuck. We hope you appreciate how this extraordinary community is a tapestry of the collective individuals therein and how adding to it means choosing to consistently engage.”

Finally, by reaching out to current students and alumni, you will learn more about the Tuck experience. That will help you better understand how you fit in at Tuck and write better Tuck MBA  essays. First, ask your friends and family if they know students or alumni you can connect with. Or, Tuck admissions can match you with a [url=https://www.tuck.dartmouth.edu/admissions/applying-to-tuck/connect]member of the community[/url].

Once you understand Tuck, think about the experiences that have shaped you. This essay is an ideal place to talk about some of your past accomplishments that involved others. For example, what you have experienced in various communities and what you have contributed or learned. You can show that you are aware of yourself and others by describing your experiences.

If you are struggling to come up with a topic to discuss, talk to your friends and family about any stories that remind them of your unique personality and how you interact with others. Sometimes talking with the people who know you the best can aid your self-awareness.

[b]Essay Question #3: “Describe a time you meaningfully contributed to someone else’s sense of inclusion in your professional or personal community.” [/b]
Tuck is a team-oriented culture. It’s essential to be an encouraging person who wants to develop others; this essay is another place to show that quality. It can also show your personality and teamwork skills.

Diversity is an important value to Tuck, and this essay can be a place for you to showcase your own commitment to diversity. As Harrison writes: “At Tuck we honor diversity in all its forms, welcome each person as they are, and provide the spaces and opportunities to engage in respectful, meaningful, and growth-oriented discussion and debate.”

Think about times you invested in another person’s success, even when inconvenient. Maybe you helped a competitor at work. Or, perhaps you helped someone who was not in a position to reciprocate. It’s easy to help others in a low-stakes environment. It is hard to be encouraging when it doesn’t personally benefit you.

Think about your behavior in a team. Do you help your teammates understand issues or hold up team progress? How do you resolve conflict? When have you helped someone when it was not noticed or required? Choose a time when you have truly been an encouraging and helpful teammate. Explain the situation, what you did, and the result.

If you learned any lessons that you have applied since then, describe those lessons.

[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/TuckGradSBC3-734x489.jpg[/img]

[b]Please provide any additional insight or information that you have not addressed elsewhere (e.g., atypical choice of references, factors affecting academic performance, unexplained job gaps or changes). Complete this question only if you feel your candidacy is not fully represented by this application. (300 words)[/b]
This optional essay is designed only for you to use as needed. If you feel that the rest of the application has fully described your personal qualities and accomplishments, no need to write this one. However, do use this essay if you need to explain anything to the admissions committee.

Examples of necessary explanations include a low GPA or academic probation. Or, perhaps you have gaps in your work experience or a non-professional recommender. If anything in your application may raise questions, clear up those doubts in this essay.

Ideally, an optional essay is brief, to the point, and focuses on the future. Succinctly explain what happened. Then, focus on how you improved and will continue to improve. Remain forward-looking and optimistic.

New Harvard MBA Essay Set for the Class of 2027 [#permalink]

FROM Stacy Blackman Consulting Blog: New Harvard MBA Essay Set for the Class of 2027
[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/HBS-Harvard-Business-School-Baker_library-cropped-734x430.jpg[/img]

In addition to the HBS [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/harvard-hbs-mba-deadlines/]deadlines[/url], the new Harvard MBA essay set for the 2024-25 admissions season has been confirmed! After many years of asking the same open-ended prompt, Harvard Business School has introduced three new essays for this application cycle. Per the HBS [url=https://www.hbs.edu/mba/admissions/Pages/from-the-admissions-director.aspx]Direct from the Director[/url] blog:

[list]
[*]We have refreshed the [url=https://www.hbs.edu/mba/admissions/Pages/who-are-we-looking-for.aspx]criteria[/url] on which we evaluate candidates. We are looking for applicants who are business-minded, leadership-focused, and growth-oriented. Remember, you don’t have to have a traditional business background to apply to HBS.[/*]
[/list]
[list]
[*]In this year’s application, we will ask you to respond to three short essays aligned with our criteria. This is your opportunity to discuss meaningful or formative experiences that are important to you that you haven’t had a chance to fully explore elsewhere in your application.[/*]
[/list]
The New Harvard MBA Essay Set
Applicants to the MBA Class of 2027 (matriculating fall 2025) need to respond to these three essay prompts:

[b]Business-Minded Essay[/b]: Please reflect on how your experiences have influenced your career choices and aspirations and the impact you will have on the businesses, organizations, and communities you plan to serve. (up to 300 words)

[b]Leadership-Focused Essay[/b]: What experiences have shaped who you are, how you invest in others, and what kind of leader you want to become? (up to 250 words)

[b]Growth-Oriented Essay[/b]: Curiosity can be seen in many ways. Please share an example of how you have demonstrated curiosity and how that has influenced your growth. (up to 250 words)

[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/HBS-Harvard-Ayva-EM-1-1-1500x1000.jpg[/img]

HBS goes into greater detail regarding [url=https://www.hbs.edu/mba/admissions/Pages/who-are-we-looking-for.aspx]each of these criteria[/url] this way:

[b]Business-Minded[/b]
We are looking for individuals who are passionate about using business as a force for good – who strive to improve and transform companies, industries, and the world. We are seeking those who are eager to solve today’s biggest problems and shape the future through creative and integrated thinking. Being business-minded is about the interest to help organizations succeed, whether in the private, public, or non-profit sector. This business inclination can be found in individuals with a variety of professional and educational experiences, not just those who come from traditional business backgrounds.

In Your Application: We will look for evidence of your interpersonal skills, quantitative abilities, and the ways in which you plan to create impact through business in the future.

[b]Leadership-Focused[/b]
We are looking for individuals who aspire to lead others toward making a difference in the world, and those who recognize that to build and sustain successful organizations, they must develop and nurture diverse teams. Leadership takes many forms in many contexts – you do not have to have a formal leadership role to make a difference. We deliberately create a class that includes different kinds of leaders, from the front-line manager to the startup founder to the behind-the-scenes thought leader.

In Your Application: Your leadership impact may be most evident in extracurriculars, community initiatives, or your professional work.

[b]Growth-Oriented[/b]
We are looking for individuals who desire to broaden their perspectives through creative problem solving, active listening, and lively discussion. At HBS you will be surrounded by future leaders from around the world who will make you think more expansively about what impact you might have. Our case and field-based learning methods depend on the active participation of curious students who are excited to listen and learn from faculty and classmates, as well as contribute their own ideas and perspectives.

In Your Application: We will look for the ways in which you have grown, developed, and how you engage with the world around you.

FROM Stacy Blackman Consulting Blog: GMAC’s Eight Types of MBA Aspirants
[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/Black-White-Aesthetic-Photo-Collage-Photography-Facebook-Cover-1.png[/img]

The journey to getting an MBA is as diverse as those who embark upon it. The Graduate Management Admission Council’s (GMAC) recent white paper, “[url=https://www.gmac.com/market-intelligence-and-research/market-research/global-gme-candidate-segmentation]Meet the Segments[/url],” categorizes eight types of MBA aspirants, each with unique motivations, goals, and aspirations.

When GMAC last conducted this research in 2016, they focused on the motivations of graduates who had pursued specific degree programs and schools. This time, the survey broadened to include younger prospective students who hadn’t yet solidified their graduate management education plans.

Information gleaned in this paper is based on a survey of 10,000 prospective MBA students in 21 countries. Explore these eight types of MBA aspirants and see which archetype best describes you.

[b]Curious about your chances of getting into a top B-school? Contact us to talk strategy with a [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/]free 15-minute advising session[/url] with an SBC Principal Consultant.[/b]

[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/8-TYPES-OF-B-SCHOOL-PROSPECTS.png[/img]

Social Impact Champions
[b]Motivation: Contributing Positively to Society[/b]

Social impact champions want to make a difference in the world. They care deeply about social issues like poverty, inequality, and the environment. These individuals often seek MBA programs with strong corporate social responsibility (CSR) elements. They see the MBA as a way to increase their positive impact on society.

[b]Case in Point:[/b]  Alex, a community organizer, wants to improve educational opportunities in underserved areas. He seeks an MBA to gain project management and fundraising skills, aiming to launch a non-profit organization that builds and supports schools in low-income neighborhoods.

Are you wondering whether you can reach your career goals faster with a social impact MBA? Stacy Blackman offers a [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/mba-social-impact-accelerator-package/]Social Impact Accelerator[/url] package designed just for purpose-driven applicants.

Aspiring Entrepreneurs
[b]Motivation: Owning Their Own Business[/b]

Aspiring entrepreneurs dream of starting and running their own businesses. They seek MBA programs with entrepreneurship tracks, incubators, and access to venture capital. These programs give them the skills and connections to turn their ideas into successful businesses.

[b]Case in Point:[/b]  Samantha has developed a sustainable fashion brand focused on eco-friendly materials. She wants an MBA to learn about business management, marketing, and securing investments to expand her brand globally.

Wealth Builders
[b]Motivation: Earning More Money[/b]

Wealth builders aim to increase their earnings. They view an MBA as an investment leading to higher salaries and better job opportunities. These aspirants pursue programs known for high post-MBA salaries and courses in lucrative fields like [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/blog/the-lure-is-more-than-salary-for-investment-banking/]investment banking[/url] and [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/blog/mba-consulting-careers-benefits/]consulting[/url].

[b]Case in Point:[/b] David is a mid-level manager in a tech company. He wants an MBA to accelerate his career and increase his earning potential.

Career Advancers
[b]Motivation: Gaining Career Options and Technical Skills[/b]

Career advancers want to move up the corporate ladder by gaining advanced skills. They are often professionals looking to pivot within their industry or take on leadership roles. These aspirants seek MBA programs with specialized tracks and industry certifications.

[b]Case in Point:[/b] Sophia is an engineer who wants to move into management. She believes an MBA will give her the strategic thinking and leadership skills needed to advance her career.

[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/8-TYPES-OF-B-SCHOOL-PROSPECTS-2.png[/img]

Career Agnostics
[b]Motivation: Figuring Out Their Ideal Career[/b]

Career agnostics are exploring their career options. They see an MBA as a way to discover their professional interests. They value programs with a broad curriculum and robust career counseling services.

[b]Case in Point: [/b]Rachel has worked in various roles within her company’s operations department but hasn’t found a niche she loves. She hopes an MBA will expose her to different fields like finance, marketing, and consulting, helping her identify a career path that excites and fulfills her.

[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/jeshoots-com-mSESwdMZr-A-unsplash-1500x1000.jpg[/img]

Global Careerists
[b]Motivation: Studying and Working Abroad[/b]

Global careerists want international experience. They seek MBA programs with strong global reputations, international campuses, and [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/blog/studying-abroad-during-your-mba/]study abroad opportunities[/url]. They find programs that emphasize global business practices attractive.

[b]Case in Point:[/b]  Carlos works in sales for a local company in Brazil and dreams of working in Europe. He wants an MBA from a school with a strong global network and exchange programs, hoping to gain international business skills and build connections that will help him secure a job in the European market.

Lifelong Learners
[b]Motivation: Personal Growth and Development Through Digital Means[/b]

Lifelong learners crave knowledge and self-improvement. They prefer flexible MBA programs that offer online or part-time options. These aspirants seek personal growth while balancing learning with their responsibilities.

[b]Case in Point:[/b] James is a software developer interested in acquiring business skills. He prefers a [url=https://www.usnews.com/education/online-education/mba/rankings]well-ranked online MBA program[/url] that allows him to continue working while learning.

Whether they aim for social impact, entrepreneurship, family support, wealth, career advancement, exploration, global experience, or lifelong learning, each type of MBA aspirant brings unique perspectives and ambitions to the table. This diversity enriches the MBA journey for everyone involved.

FROM Stacy Blackman Consulting Blog: Texas McCombs MBA Application Essays for the Class of 2027
[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/Texas-McCombs-Rowling-Hall-pano-1.jpg[/img]

Are you interested in applying to the [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/mba-application-advice/ut-mccombs-school-of-business/]UT McCombs School of Business[/url] this year? Then get ready to start brainstorming! The new Texas McCombs MBA application essays and [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/blog/texas-mccombs-mba-application-deadlines/]deadlines[/url] for the 2024-2025 admissions cycle have been confirmed.

This week, the school has announced [url=https://www.mccombs.utexas.edu/graduate/mba/full-time-mba/admissions/application-process/]changes to its MBA essay prompts[/url], allowing applicants to share narratives and insights not captured elsewhere in the application. “These are purposefully designed to elicit thoughtful and introspective responses that reveal your motivations, values, and aspirations,” the school notes.

If you’re interested in UT McCombs, this is a [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/blog/b-schooled-podcast-episode-82-interview-with-ut-mccombs-adcom-md-rodrigo-malta/]can’t-miss episode[/url] of the B-Schooled podcast! Erika interviews [url=https://www.mccombs.utexas.edu/Directory/Profiles/Malta-Rodrigo]Rodrigo Malta[/url], Managing Director, MBA Recruiting and Admissions at McCombs, who gives extremely insightful advice and information for aspiring MBAs.

Texas McCombs Video Assessment
Texas McCombs has always been at the forefront of innovation and continuous improvement, consistently seeking new ways to enhance the application process for prospective MBA candidates. In line with our school mission and values, we introduced a dynamic video assessment component as part of the 2022-23 admission cycle, offering an alternative approach to a more traditional essay and interview format.

Given all applicants will complete the video assessment, MBA candidates will have increased access to the application process and the opportunity to share their stories with us in their own voice.  Through the video assessment, the admissions committee will have a chance to experience the “real” you, beyond a resume, test scores, and transcripts. Lastly, the video assessment will enable Texas McCombs to reduce bias in the admissions process by providing all applicants with a structured and consistent assessment experience.

[b]All applicants[/b] will be required to complete the Video Assessment shortly after submitting their application and paying the fee. Applicants have 7 days to complete the assessment upon receiving access to the video submission platform. There will be 4 question prompts and applicants will have 90 seconds to answer each prompt.

[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/Rowling_exterior.png[/img]

Optional: Peer Interview
One of the most vital parts of the MBA application process at Texas McCombs is the human component – “Human-Centered, Future-Focused” is our mantra for a reason. We pride ourselves in getting to know you at a personal level during the admissions process and will continue to provide hundreds of virtual and in-person ways for you to meet our students, alumni, faculty, and admissions team.

We invite all MBA applicants to close out their application process in a human-centered way and complete a short, optional virtual interview. While not required, registering for and completing an interview is[b] highly encouraged. [/b][b] [/b]

These interactive virtual sessions present a valuable opportunity for our applicants to connect with Full-Time MBA students, showcasing their collaborative skills, reaffirming their motivation for pursuing an MBA, and leaving a lasting positive impression on Texas McCombs.

The optional interview will last 20-30 minutes and are available throughout the round. The student ambassador will introduce themselves and ask you up to 3 questions that focus on collaboration and your motivation.  The rest of the time is yours to ask 2-3 questions that are top of mind.

FROM Stacy Blackman Consulting Blog: Tuesday Tips: Cornell MBA Application Tips for 2024-2025
[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/Cornell-Johnson-MBA-Essay-Tips-b31b1b-1-1080x1000.png[/img]

Are you targeting [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/mba-application-advice/cornell-johnson/]Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School of Management[/url]? The Cornell MBA application is now live, so it’s time to tackle those MBA essays. Cornell Johnson is a flexible MBA program within an Ivy League campus. The school offers multiple full-time options, including a one-year MBA, specialized executive programs, and the Cornell Tech MBA in Ithaca and New York City.

Whatever your goals and background, Cornell has a program that can help you achieve them. Johnson also works to integrate the MBA experience into the larger Cornell community and leverage coursework at the other top-ranked graduate programs to provide more opportunities to Johnson students.

When approaching the Cornell MBA application essay and goal statement, set your strategy before you start working. Then, identify the program at Cornell in which you are most interested. Do some comprehensive school research. That means researching the faculty, coursework, and career opportunities. Also, examine your background and goals to see what is most important to explain as part of your story.

Make sure to inject a layer of personal background and experiences—what makes you truly unique (this year, there is a question to highlight that aspect of your application). Finally, ensure you have solid academics, work experience, and extracurriculars.

These can be covered in your Cornell MBA essays, resume, or recommendations. If you identify any holes in your profile or story, take the time to fill them out before starting your application. You can explain anything necessary in the optional essay.

[b]Curious about your chances of getting into a top B-school? [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/]Contact us[/url] to talk strategy with a free 15-minute advising session with an SBC Principal Consultant. [/b]

Cornell MBA Application Essays and Tips
Use this short-answer section to succinctly share your short- and long-term goals. If you’re invited to interview, you will have the opportunity to elaborate on your statement further, and you should be prepared to connect your prior experience with your future aspirations.
[b]Goals Statement[/b]
A statement of your goals will begin a conversation that will last throughout the admissions process and guide your steps during the MBA program and experience. To the best of your understanding today, please share your short and long term goals by completing the following sentences and answering the enclosed short answer question (350 words maximum):
Immediately post-MBA, my goal is to work as a(n) ____[Role]____ at ___[Company]___within___[Industry]___.

Targeted Job Role:

Target Job Company:

Industry:

In 5 – 10 years post-MBA, my goal is to work as a(n) ____[Role]____ at ___[Company]___within___[Industry]___.

Targeted Job Role:

Target Job Company:

Industry:

Please share how you plan to utilize the resources available to you at Johnson as well as any existing resources you bring to the program to help you secure your post-MBA career goal.
This short answer question quickly covers the relevant career goals questions for your Cornell MBA application. Make sure that your answers are clear and are consistent with your recommenders.

Once you have identified your industry, company, and role in the short- and long-term, you can briefly answer the short question. This question asks how you plan to achieve your goals. First, how will Johnson prepare you? This could be classes, networking, or internships.

It also could be projects you pursue at Johnson or leadership in a professional club. Second, think about any resources you already have. One is likely your current professional network. Also, consider your work experience and any other academic experiences that could help you achieve your goal.

As the lead-in to the question reminds you, this essay is just the beginning of a conversation that will continue with your interview. Finally, ensure you have logically connected your past experiences with your future aspirations in this essay.

Impact Essay Or The Unique Trat That Defines Me
[b]Choose one of the following essay options.[/b]
[b]Option 1: Impact Essay: At Cornell, our students and alumni share a desire to positively impact the organizations and communities they serve. How do you intend to make a meaningful impact on the Johnson community? (350 words maximum)[/b]
Choose this essay if you want to show your strong connection to Cornell and have a good idea of how you will contribute to the school. As the Cornell Johnson admissions committee says, “This essay is designed to explore the intersection of engagement and community culture. Whether during the program or following graduation, our students and alumni share a desire to positively impact the organizations and communities they serve.”

Considering your MBA experience, how do you plan to actively participate in the community? Once again, the first step to answering this question is to do your research. The admissions team at Johnson suggests connecting with current students using the [url=https://www.johnson.cornell.edu/programs/full-time-mba/admissions/community-search-tool/]community search tool[/url]. Another way to find a personal connection is to reach out to friends, family, and work colleagues to see if anyone knows a current or future member of the Johnson community.

As you prepare for conversations to learn more about Cornell Johnson, think about programs, extracurricular activities, and the informal ways students might interact. Johnson offers groups for interests ranging from cooking to ice hockey and has professional clubs for every possible career path.

Those formal groups or connecting in a classroom or party might be ways you make connections at Johnson. Knowing the school well is essential for a successful Cornell MBA application. Once you have identified opportunities to contribute to campus life at Johnson, you should support your story with evidence from your past experiences.

For example, maybe you want to bring new speakers to the Johnson Marketing Association because you have contributed to your young professionals group at work. Explain that you have successfully organized events featuring prominent speakers for a large group of people and can bring that skill to impact your peers at Johnson.

[b]Option 2: The Unique Trait that Defines Me: What is something unique about you that others will remember you by? (350 words maximum)[/b]
This essay option is a good choice if you want to expand upon your background or personal qualities. Consider what unique trait you want to discuss and if it will enhance your application. For example, if you are especially passionate about your career path and that is due to something unique in your circumstances or personality, this would be an ideal essay for you.

It’s also a useful essay to tell a story that helps you stand out from other applicants. For example, perhaps you had an early defining leadership experience you want to highlight. Or, you have a particularly interesting background. The admissions committee often searches for students who will add a new element to the class. If you have something unique to contribute, this is the essay to describe it.

Once you have described the unique trait, tell a story that helps the reader visualize how the trait has impacted those around you. Is there a story that illustrates why people remember you? And, if you can draw a conclusion that shows how you will positively impact the Johnson community with your trait that is a powerful ending.

[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/ADWhiteReadingRoom_CornellUniversity-734x489.jpg[/img]

Optional Essay (Required for Reapplicants)
[b]You may use this essay to call attention to items needing clarification and to add additional details to any aspects of your application that do not accurately reflect your potential for success at Johnson. (350 words maximum [/b]
[b]If you are reapplying for admission, please use this essay to indicate how you have strengthened your application and candidacy since the last time you applied for admission. Please also review our Application Guide for additional information about reapplying (350 words maximum).[/b]
This essay allows for either an explanation of any weaknesses in your application or additional information. Your issue could be a poor GPA or GMAT. Or you might have concerns with your undergraduate record. Possibly, you were unable to provide a recommendation from a current supervisor. If any of those issues exist, this is the place to give the background.

Briefly describe the situation and what may have contributed to the issue (illness, family difficulties, etc.). Make sure you don’t editorialize—facts only. Focus the balance of your essay on looking forward. What have you done recently to demonstrate your skills and intelligence?

For re-applicants, this is the place to explain what you have done since your last application. Make sure to strengthen your case for admission. If you have a new GMAT score or took classes in calculus or statistics, you have a solid case for improved academics. A promotion could signal career development and leadership.

Even if you don’t have a clear-cut update, you can use this space to explain how you have improved your career goals or fit with Cornell.

MIT Sloan Cover Letter, Application Requirements for 2024-2025 [#permalink]

FROM Stacy Blackman Consulting Blog: MIT Sloan Cover Letter, Application Requirements for 2024-2025
[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/1280px-MITSloan_E62-734x489.jpg[/img]

The [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/mba-application-advice/mit-sloan/]MIT Sloan School of Management[/url] has published the application requirements and [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/blog/mit-sloan-deadlines/]deadlines[/url] for the  2024-2025 admissions season. Once again, candidates must submit a cover letter rather than a traditional MBA essay.

MIT Sloan Cover Letter and Application Requirements
Here’s how each component is explained on the [url=https://mitsloan.mit.edu/mba/admissions/how-to-apply]MIT Sloan admissions[/url] site:

[b]Cover Letter[/b]
MIT Sloan seeks students whose personal characteristics demonstrate that they will make the most of the incredible opportunities at MIT, both academic and non-academic. We are on a quest to find those whose presence will enhance the experience of other students. We seek thoughtful leaders with exceptional intellectual abilities and the drive and determination to put their stamp on the world. We welcome people who are independent, authentic, and fearlessly creative — true doers. We want people who can redefine solutions to conventional problems, and strive to preempt unconventional dilemmas with cutting-edge ideas. We demand integrity and respect passion.

Taking the above into consideration, please submit a cover letter seeking a place in the MIT Sloan MBA program. Your letter should conform to a standard business correspondence, include one or more professional examples that illustrate why you meet the desired criteria above, and be addressed to the Admissions Committee (300 words or fewer, excluding address and salutation).

[b]Resume[/b]
Please submit a [b]one-page[/b] resume. This will help us easily track your academic and career path. Try to focus on your work results, not just your title or job description. Here are some pointers on formatting:

[list]
[*]One page limit[/*]
[*]Times New Roman font[/*]
[*]Size 10 font[/*]
[*]Word or PDF formats only[/*]
[/list]
Provide the following information in reverse chronological order:

[list]
[*]Education: Please include relevant awards, scholarships and professional societies[/*]
[*]Work Experience: Please include company name, title, results-oriented bullets that demonstrate your skill set, and dates[/*]
[*]Additional information: Please include extracurricular activities/community service, technical skills/certifications, and special skills/interests, and languages spoken (if applicable)[/*]
[/list]
[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/MIT-Sloan-ring.jpg[/img]

[b]Video Question 1[/b]
Introduce yourself to your future classmates. Here’s your chance to put a face with a name, let your personality shine through, be conversational, be yourself. We can’t wait to meet you!

Videos should adhere to the following guidelines:

[list]
[*]No more than 1 minute (60 seconds) in length[/*]
[*]Single take (no editing)[/*]
[*]Speaking directly to the camera[/*]
[*]Do not include background music or subtitles[/*]
[/list]

[b]Note[/b]: While we ask you to introduce yourself to your future classmates in this video, the video will not be shared and is for use in the application process only.

[b]Video Question 2[/b]
All MBA applicants will be prompted to respond to a randomly generated, open-ended question. The question is designed to help us get to know you better; to see how you express yourself and to assess fit with the MIT Sloan culture. It does not require prior preparation.

Video Essay 2 is part of your required application materials and will appear as a page within the application, once the other parts of your application are completed. Applicants are given 5 seconds to prepare for a 60-second response.

[b]Additional requirements beyond the MIT Sloan Cover Letter and Videos[/b]
We want to make sure we give you the best chance to show us your strengths, so please provide us with contact information for two additional professional references. If we still have questions after reading your application, we might reach out to one or both of these references. Similar to your recommender, these additional references should be able to speak to your professional and/or academic background. These two individuals should be different from your recommender.

Also, candidates need to upload an organizational chart that outlines the internal structure of their department and company. This will help the AdCom better understand your current role and the impact that you have on your team and department.

UCLA MBA Application Essays for 2024-2025 [#permalink]

FROM Stacy Blackman Consulting Blog: UCLA MBA Application Essays for 2024-2025
[img]https://www.stacyblackman.com/wp-content/uploads/UCLA-Anderson-Large-734x551.jpg[/img]

If the [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/mba-application-advice/ucla-anderson/]UCLA Anderson School of Management[/url] is on your shortlist of target MBA programs, then let the brainstorming begin. Here are the updated UCLA MBA application essays and [url=https://www.stacyblackman.com/blog/anderson-ucla-mba-deadlines/]deadlines[/url] for the 2024-2025 season. This year, Anderson will have three short essay prompts required for first-time applicants.

UCLA MBA Application Essays
Strong essays describe the impact of your achievement and clarify its connection to your future MBA plans in the short- and long-term. We look forward to learning about the specific ways your achievement helped set you up for future success.

[b]Essay 1:[/b] Why are you pursuing an MBA? (150 words)

[b]Essay 2:[/b] Describe your short-term and long-term post-MBA career goals. (150 words)

[b]Essay 3:[/b] At Anderson, our mission is to prepare transformative leaders by developing students to think innovatively, problem-solve, and adapt to others – all with a driven and purposeful mindset. How do you plan to achieve your goals and develop into a transformative leader during your time at UCLA Anderson? (250 words)

[b]Optional Essay:[/b] No preference is given in the evaluation process to those who choose to respond to this optional essay, so please use your best judgment:

Are there any extenuating circumstances in your profile about which the Admissions Committee should be aware? (250 words maximum)

[b]Note for Reapplicants[/b]
Reapplicants are those who applied to the MBA program within the last two application years, so those who applied three or more years ago are considered new applicants.

Reapplicants are asked to indicate updates on test scores, career, academics, activities, and/or other changes since their last application (under the Reapplicants section on the Program page of the application.) Highlighting progress made since the prior application is the best way to get a different result this time.

Reapplicants are required to answer the first two Short Essay Prompts. It is suggested, but not required, to also answer the third Short Essay Prompt, as well as the Optional Essay.

For more information on applying, please visit the UCLA Anderson [url=https://www.anderson.ucla.edu/degrees/full-time-mba/admissions/requirements]MBA admissions website[/url].
