Monday Morning Essay Tip: Use Information That Is School Specific  [#permalink]

FROM mbaMission Blog: Monday Morning Essay Tip: Use Information That Is School Specific
In business school application essays, some candidates unintentionally describe their personal experience with a specific MBA program in a vague and general way. Because they are writing from memory and discussing their authentic experience, they do not realize that they are not being specific enough. Consider the following example:

“During my visit to Cornell Johnson, I was struck by the easygoing classroom discussion, the warmth of the professors, and the time spent by the first-year student who not only toured the facilities with me but also took me out for coffee and asked several of his colleagues to join us.”

Although these statements may in fact be true, the text contains no Cornell-specific language. If the Yale School of Management, Michigan Ross, or the name of any other school were substituted for Cornell Johnson here, the statement would not otherwise change at all, resulting in a weak and generic essay.

In contrast, the following statement could refer only to Darden:

“While on Grounds, I was impressed by Professor Robert Carraway’s easygoing and humorous style as he facilitated a fast-paced discussion of the ‘George’s T-Shirts’ case. Although I admittedly felt dizzied by the class’s pace, I was comforted when I encountered several students reviewing the finer points of the case later at First Coffee. I was impressed when my first-year guide stopped mid-tour to check in with her learning teammate and reinforce the case’s central point. It was then I recognized that this was the right environment for me.”

If you were to substitute the Darden name and even the professor’s name with those of another school and professor, the paragraph would no longer work. Including the Darden-specific information regarding the day’s case, First Coffee, and learning teams ensures that these sentences have a sincere and personal feel and shows that the candidate truly understands what the school is about. This is necessary to craft a compelling personal statement that will catch the admissions committee’s attention.

FROM mbaMission Blog: MBA News: Women Filling More and More Seats at Business Schools
Image
Gender equality has long been a topic of heated discussion at business schools, and now some say things are changing rapidly. A recent Bloomberg Business article remarked that a notable number of top-ranked business schools have 40% or more women in their most recent incoming class. Forte Foundation, a nonprofit organization promoting business education for women, examined the schools further and found that women constituted only 32% of full-time MBA program enrollments just four years ago.

Indeed, many top-ranked schools reported a higher volume of applications from women. At Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business, for example, 7% more women applied last year compared to the previous one. As a result, Tuck’s Class of 2017 includes 42% women—10% more than last year. “It’s very coed and everything feels equal, which is something I wanted when applying,” a first-year Tuck MBA candidate commented to Bloomberg.

Mission Admission: Waitlist Strategies, Part 1  [#permalink]

New post 17 Nov 2015, 09:01
FROM mbaMission Blog: Mission Admission: Waitlist Strategies, Part 1
Mission Admission is a series of MBA admission tips; a new one is posted each Tuesday.

Image

In recent weeks, many candidates have received a response from MBA admissions committees that can sometimes be far more frustrating than a rejection: “You have been placed on our waitlist.” What should you do when your status is uncertain? The first and most important thing is to listen to the admissions committee. If the committee tells you not to send follow-up material of any sort, then do not yield to temptation and send material that you think will bolster your case. If you misguidedly choose to do so after being specifically instructed not to, you will most definitely identify yourself in a negative way—not the type of message you want to send to the group that will decide your fate.

Does this rule have any exceptions? Yes, actually. If you know a current student or an alumnus/alumna who can tactfully, diplomatically, and independently work on your behalf, you can have this third party write a letter to or otherwise contact the admissions committee in support of your candidacy. But again, this is acceptable only if this individual truly understands the delicate nature of the interaction. If you have no such person on your side, you will have to wait patiently, as difficult as that may be.

Next week: Responding to admissions committees that do accept additional information.

MBA Career Advice: The CEO Test: Qualitative Results  [#permalink]

New post 17 Nov 2015, 12:00
FROM mbaMission Blog: MBA Career Advice: The CEO Test: Qualitative Results
In this weekly series, our friends at MBA Career Coaches will be dispensing invaluable advice to help you actively manage your career. Topics include building your network, learning from mistakes and setbacks, perfecting your written communication, and mastering even the toughest interviews. For more information or to sign up for a free career consultation, visit www.mbacareercoaches.com.

Last time, we talked about the CEO Test for your resume bullets. Make sure that every line of your resume conveys a concrete and verifiable result you produced. The best results are measurable in terms of time and money, so seek to understand your bottom-line impact in everything you have done.

While concrete measures in terms of dollars and time are ideal, it won’t always be possible to showcase them. Notably, the earlier you are in your career, the harder it will be to understand how the work you do has translated into real results for your company. But you still need to ensure each bullet passes the CEO Test. In other words, they must convey an outcome the CEO would care about. For example…

CEO Test Fail:

  • Implemented training program for all 300 employees for environmental awareness
CEO Test Pass:

  • Reduced environmental non-compliance 40% during internal audits on manufacturing floor through company-wide awareness programs and training
Again, notice how much more compelling this bullet is because it highlights the outcome of the candidate’s work. The impact of training, mentoring, and education initiatives often can’t be quantified in terms of the bottom line. But if you dig a little bit, you might be surprised how many things can be measured or are already being tracked by your company or your clients. Be careful not to overreach or make up numbers. If you offer measures that stray from dollars and time, make sure that any numbers you cite (in this case 40% non-compliance reduction) can be backed up with empirical proof.

Sometimes quantifiable results are simply not available. In those cases, be sure to offer more qualitative measures of your success. Awards are a great example of a qualitative result. But they do not mean much by themselves, so be sure if you have been lauded for excellent performance, that those acknowledgements are included as part of the bullet that led to the award.

CEO Test Fail:

  • Work extensively at client offices; communicate with clients frequently through in-person meetings, email correspondence, and formal letters
  • Star Performer Award for outstanding work performed
CEO Test Pass: (bullets fused to show the result)

  • Met unrealistic demands and deadlines, kept team morale high, and mastered client software quickly on tax compliance project; leading to a Star Performer Award for my work
CEO Test Fail:

  • Involved in campus recruiting for firm
CEO Test Pass:

  • Led recruiting initiatives at multiple schools by organizing, leading and attending recruiting events; identified as a top 5% contributor to recruiting efforts last year
Consider these final bullets:

CEO Test Fail:

  • Managed a team of six on a design project
CEO Test Pass:

  • Managed a team of six to design a new client solution on a compressed timeline under budget
CEO Test Fail:

  • Helped design the firm’s five-year strategic plan
CEO Test Pass:

  • Led three executives in crafting five-year corporate strategic plan; plan praised by CEO as the most comprehensive and actionable in firm’s history
You can see how much more powerful the bullets are when they are associated with outcomes. Even qualitative results matter to the CEO, and they will matter to your future employer as well. So if you can’t credibly connect your work to a quantifiable outcome, then be sure to ferret out the results that are nonetheless measurable, even if that means relying on more qualitative information.

Professor Profiles: Baba Shiv, Stanford Graduate School of Business  [#permalink]

FROM mbaMission Blog: Professor Profiles: Baba Shiv, Stanford Graduate School of Business
Many MBA applicants feel that they are purchasing a brand when they choose an MBA program, but the educational experience you will have is what is crucial to your future, and no one will affect your education more than your professors. Each Wednesday, we profile a standout professor as identified by students. Today, we focus on Baba Shiv from the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB).

Image
“Baba Shiv is a legend,” said a first-year GSB student with whom we spoke. Baba Shiv, who also teaches within the executive MBA program, received his MBA from the Indian Institute of Management and his PhD from Duke University before joining the Stanford GSB faculty in 2005. Shiv’s research concentration is in the area of neuroeconomics, and he focuses his studies on the systems of the brain that lead individuals to like and want things and how those systems shape people’s decisions. His work explores self-control and why people make certain choices, even when logic tells them that those choices may not be in their best interest.

A GSB alumni magazine article once described Shiv as “a favorite uncle who is always interested in your life and eager to talk about new, exciting ideas,” and Dan Ariely, a colleague of Shiv’s and a professor at Duke Fuqua, noted in the same article, “Shiv’s mere presence makes everything around him seem better.” A second year and Marketing Club officer told mbaMission that Shiv “tries to be a career resource for people who want to pursue marketing careers” and is “engaging and exciting to listen to. He is one of the favorite members of the whole faculty; people love him.”

In Other News… A New MBA Program, Sports Management, and Indian Busine  [#permalink]

New post 18 Nov 2015, 12:00
FROM mbaMission Blog: In Other News… A New MBA Program, Sports Management, and Indian Business Schools
The business school world is constantly buzzing with change and innovation. Each week, in addition to our regular news posts, we briefly touch on a few notable stories from this dynamic field in one roundup. Here is what caught our eye this week:

  • Sizable donations occasionally lead to the renaming of business schools, but building one as a result of a gift is less common. A recent $40M gift to Wayne State University—the largest in the university’s history—from Detroit-based business mogul Mike Ilitch and his wife Marian Ilitch will be used to build a new, “state-of-the-art” business school in downtown Detroit. The Mike Ilitch School of Business is expected to open for approximately 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students in 2018.
  • Where does one turn when attempting to move forward in a Major League Baseball management career? Business school, evidently. Former Boston Red Sox General Manager Ben Cherington, who will teach leadership at Columbia University’s graduate program next spring, credits his experience at the Harvard Business School (HBS) Executive Education program in 2009 for his rise to the general manager position soon after. “A big part of developing as a leader is being comfortable with being uncomfortable, and exposing yourself in ways that maybe you’re not used to,” Cherington commented to the Boston Globe recently. “The [HBS] program itself is not designed for a baseball ops staffer, but it intrigued me in different ways.”
    Image
    Indian School of Business

  • India is home to numerous respectable MBA programs, including the Indian Institute of Management and the Indian School of Business, but the country is largely absent from international business school rankings. Why? As the Wall Street Journal noted in a recent blog post, only the Indian Institute of Management was included in a recent rankings list by The Economist, while India’s smaller neighbors Hong Kong and Singapore each had three schools in the top 100. Causes could include a typical lack of work experience among MBA students and dated teaching methods, the article suggests.

Retail Management Association

When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

In May 2015, the Retail Management Association student club presented the 14th annual Anderson Charity Fashion Show—called AnderGlam—with the theme “Beverly Hills 90210,” featuring fashions from such brands as GUESS and DSTLD. The show was originally created to showcase the “distinct style of Los Angeles” and has grown in popularity and attracts international designers and as many as 400 audience members each year. MBA students (and professors!) take to the catwalk as models, and reportedly, even Dean Olian participates in the event. In recent years, the fashion show has featured such designers as LaRok, Shoshanna, Tadashi, and David Meister, raising thousands of dollars for several nonprofit organizations, including the Special Olympics. The 2014 and 2015 events benefitted Dress for Success Los Angeles, a nonprofit that provides professional attire to disadvantaged women.

For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at UCLA Anderson and 15 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.

MBA applicants can get carried away with rankings. In this series, we profile amazing programs at business schools that are typically ranked outside the top 15.

Named after late Coca-Cola CEO Roberto C. Goizueta, Emory University’s Goizueta Business School is deeply rooted in a legacy of global business leadership. Goizueta’s MBA program offers one- and two-year formats, strives to maintain an intimate learning environment, and affords its students the benefits of being located in a significant global commercial hub. One of the program’s notable advantages has been its recent success in attracting recruiters: in fact, Bloomberg Businessweek ranked Goizueta first for employment in 2012. The school’s recruiting strengths seem to be reflected in its latest employment report as well—98% of the Class of 2014 received job offers within three months of graduation and accepted positions with such major companies as Accenture, Bank of America, Deloitte, Delta Air Lines, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, Johnson & Johnson, McKinsey & Company, and Walmart.

Already well known as a finance powerhouse, Columbia Business School (CBS) stepped up its finance game in 2010 with the establishment of the Program for Financial Studies. This umbrella initiative connects faculty who approach financial studies from a variety of disciplines with students, alumni, and external organizations. The program’s main goals are to support research, enhance the Columbia finance curriculum and related resources for students, and create opportunities for the exchange of ideas between Columbia students and faculty and members of the external finance community. Finance wonks will enjoy the program’s finance case studies, including “Sunrise Inc.: A Tale of Two Term Sheets,” written by Professor Morten Sorensen, and “Apple, Inc. in 2009: Seeking Sustained Corporate Growth,” written by Professor David Ross.

For more information on other defining characteristics of the MBA program at CBS or one of 15 other top business schools, please check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides. If you are applying to CBS, our Columbia Business School Interview Primer can help you put your best foot forward.

FROM mbaMission Blog: mbaMission Consultant Spotlight: Debbie Choy
At mbaMission, our consultants are more than just graduates of the world’s top MBA programs—we are also expert communicators who possess an unparalleled knowledge of the admissions process. Each week, we highlight one member of our team who has committed his/her professional life to helping you get into business school.

Image
Before earning her MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Debbie Choy was an investment analyst with JP Morgan, and previously, a management consultant with Booz & Co. After graduating, she worked in product marketing in the medical technology industry, where she developed an expertise in the planning and execution of product launches, product line management and marketing strategy. In addition, Debbie was actively involved in recruiting business school graduates for her employer and led an MBA recruiting program for a fast-growing health care company, focusing on the top programs. She also presented at career fairs and directly interviewed candidates. Debbie is a co-founder of ALIST Magazine, which showcases Asian American corporate leaders and success stories. In this capacity, she oversaw a team of six staff writers and produced a regular column called “Women At Work” for the publication’s Web site. Debbie graduated cum laude from Vassar College with a BA in international studies. Debbie grew up in Singapore and speaks fluent Mandarin and Cantonese, as well as conversational French.

Quick Facts:
Received MBA from: Stanford GSB

Undergraduate field of study: International Studies

Fields worked in before mbaMission: Management consulting, finance, health care

Working style: Casual, creative

Five things you want your clients to know about you:

1. “I grew up in Singapore and speak Mandarin, Cantonese, and a bit of French. I have conducted client calls in all three languages, although for the purposes of the essays, we still write in English!”

2. “My professional background is in finance, management consulting, and healthcare (product management). I love working with clients from these industries since I understand the work they do, the “lingo”, and the passion that drives them.”

3. “I especially love helping international clients translate their fascinating background into language that resonates with the AdCom. My own international background enables me to help my clients bridge multiple cultures in their own distinct way!”

4. “I’m always encouraging my clients to look at themselves and their experiences with a different perspective. This self-awareness will not only help them in the application process, but also in future job interviews.”

5. “I am constantly learning from my clients’ increasingly complex jobs. Making my clients “break it down” for me enables them to explain their jobs in an accessible way to the AdCom!”

What Past Clients Are Saying:
“I honestly don’t think I would have gotten into Stanford without the help of Debbie. I was hesitant about using a consultant at first just because of the price, but I have to say that it was worth it. For me, it kept me on track with deadlines, forced me to brainstorm and think through my experiences, and in general helped my essays be better than I ever thought that they could be. Everything exceeded all my expectations.” — Stanford GSB Admit

“I highly recommend working with Debbie Choy at MBA Mission after applying to business school this past January. Debbie gave expert insight about each step of the application process and provided guidance on how to write the best essay for each school. Even with my unpredictable work schedule, Debbie was extremely patient and understanding with me and ensured that my applications were the strongest they could be.” — Business School Admit

“I did not have the best GMAT score, and I had hoped to overcome that obstacle with a strong resume and strong essays. Debbie from mbaMission helped me to write stellar essays. We worked for a couple months back and forth via emails and a couple phone calls. She helped me to get specific and concise with my experiences highlighting the stories that made a real impact. Debbie emphasized a “show don’t tell” attitude in my essays. It took some time and effort, but it paid off. I ended up with multiple offers from the top schools I had applied to, each one with a scholarship or a Graduate Assistantship offer. I attribute much of my offers to the work of mbaMission and Debbie.” — Business School Admit

MBA Admissions Myths Destroyed: I Have No Managerial Experience  [#permalink]

New post 21 Nov 2015, 09:00
FROM mbaMission Blog: MBA Admissions Myths Destroyed: I Have No Managerial Experience
Image
It might seem ironic to some that formal managerial experience is not a prerequisite for admission to a top MBA program. It is important to keep in mind that an MBA education is for those who aspire to become managers and is not exclusive to those who already are managers. If you are fretting about the fact that you have not had any subordinates to date and feel that overseeing a staff is a prerequisite to gaining admission to a top program, you are adhering to a myth and should worry no more. Instead, think about how you have simply excelled in your position and made the most of the leadership opportunities before you.

So, for example, consider the numerous investment banking analysts who apply to MBA programs each year. While analysts are at the bottom of the banks’ organizational charts and therefore do not have staffs to manage, they still have demanding jobs and must perform exceptionally well each day to succeed. Most analysts can tell the story of thriving in an ultra-competitive environment and thus reveal their professional excellence via their resumes, essays, and recommendations. And, even if most analysts do not have staffs of their own, there are still ample opportunities for senior analysts to train and mentor newer analysts. So, without a title and a staff, investment banking analysts can still demonstrate their leadership and de facto management skills.

Of course, conventional professional management provides only one opportunity to display your leadership traits. If you have not had opportunities to prove that you have the interpersonal skills necessary to lead others, you can still rely on your community activities and even personal leadership to positively reveal your potential. The bottom line is that the schools are not exclusively looking for managers but for those with true promise.

B-School Chart of the Week: How Many Applicants Actually Enroll?  [#permalink]

FROM mbaMission Blog: B-School Chart of the Week: How Many Applicants Actually Enroll?
Although quantifying a school’s profile certainly does not tell you everything, it can sometimes be helpful in simplifying the many differences between the various MBA programs. Each week, we bring you a chart to help you decide which of the schools’ strengths speak to you.

The business school application season is in full swing, and undoubtedly many MBA hopefuls are fretting over their essays and potential interviews at this very moment. All the stress will be a mere memory soon enough—but how many of these applicants will actually end up walking through the doors of their dream schools next year? Looking back to last year’s admissions statistics offers a bit of insight. According to the UCLA Anderson School of Management’s Class of 2017 profile, for example, the school received more than 3,500 applications last year, but a mere 360 students—only 10% of the applicant pool—enrolled in August.

Of course, many students are admitted to more than one school, leaving them to ponder which institution best suits them. This creates a discrepancy between the number of admitted students—which schools typically do not make public—and the number of actual enrollments. The Stanford Graduate School of Business, for example, reported a notably low enrollment percentage for its applicant pool—with 7,899 applications and 407 students in the Class of 2017, just 5% of applicants enrolled. Take a deep breath amid the chaos of applying and think—of all the schools you have chosen, where would you most like to enroll?

GMAT Impact: All About Critical Reasoning, Part 1  [#permalink]

New post 22 Nov 2015, 08:00
FROM mbaMission Blog: GMAT Impact: All About Critical Reasoning, Part 1
With regard to the GMAT, raw intellectual horsepower helps, but it is not everything. In this blog series, Manhattan Prep’s Stacey Koprince teaches you how to perform at your best on test day by using some common sense.

Which type of Critical Reasoning (CR) question drives you crazy? Boldface? Find the Assumption? Inference?

The Critical Reasoning ProcessImage

Before you dive into individual question types, knowing the overall CR process is critical. Here are a few key notes:

  • There are four major* and five minor question subtypes, and each one has its own particular technique details. We will talk about the four major types in this post; check back next week for more information on the five minor types.
  • Your job is to learn the overall process/strategy for CR as well as the techniques specific to each question subtype.
*Note: Major types show up more frequently than minor types.

To master CR, you should be able to answer the following questions about each question type:

  • How do I recognize this question type?
  • What kind of information should I expect to find in the argument, based on this question type? What kind of information is going to be the most important?
  • What is the goal for this question type? What characteristics must the correct answer have?
  • What kinds of traps will be set for me? What are the common wrong answer types for this question type?
The Assumption Family
Assumption Family questions always involve a conclusion. This group consists of five subtypes overall. Here are the three major ones in this category:

Find the Assumption: What does the other assume is true when drawing the conclusion? Want to try another?

Strengthen the Conclusion: What new information would help to make the conclusion a little more likely to be true?

Weaken the Conclusion: What new information would help to make the conclusion a little less likely to be true?

The Evidence Family
Evidence Family questions really do not have conclusions (never “big” conclusions, like the Assumption arguments, and usually no conclusions at all).

This group consists of two subtypes overall, but only Inference questions are a major type:

Inference: Given the information in the argument, which answer choice must be true?

Spend some time mastering those four major types, as well as the overall CR process.

In Other News… A Medical Research Endowment, the Lack of Female CEOs,   [#permalink]

New post 22 Nov 2015, 13:01
FROM mbaMission Blog: In Other News… A Medical Research Endowment, the Lack of Female CEOs, and Unusual Essay Prompts
The business school world is constantly buzzing with change and innovation. Each week, in addition to our regular news posts, we briefly touch on a few notable stories from this dynamic field in one roundup. Here is what caught our eye this week:

  • Harvard Business School (HBS) has received a $20M donation from the Robert and Myra Kraft Family Foundation, Inc., of which alum Robert K. Kraft is president. The gift will establish the Kraft Endowment for Advancing Precision Medicine to support research within the field of precision medicine, which focuses on using genomic information on diseases to better diagnose and treat patients. In collaboration with the Broad Institute, HBS hopes to help advance the field of precision medicine through commercialization. “[The gift] will have a huge impact on generations to come,” Harvard University President Drew Gilpin Faust said, “contributing to the quality of life for many people around the globe by alleviating the pain and suffering caused by a wide array of serious illnesses.”

    Image
  • The role of women within business schools has been a notable topic of discussion lately. Yet a recent article published by Quartz claims women are still disproportionately represented in executive roles—so much so, in fact, that a mere 4.4% of CEOs at S&P 500 companies are female. Citing a “striking contrast between education and leadership,” Quartz reports that many top-ranked business schools are well on their way to gender equality within the student body.
  • MBA application questions and prompts often follow a traditional path, with only a few schools truly stepping outside the box in the quest to find their ideal candidates. The University of Chicago Booth School of Business is known for challenging the status quo, and this year its essay topic has baffled even the Wall Street Journal. Chicago Booth asks applicants to choose one of 16 photos depicting student life and describe “how it resonates with [their] own viewpoint on why the Booth community is the right fit for [them].” Perhaps more schools will follow suit and choose unorthodox essay prompts next year?

Monday Morning Essay Tip: Limit the Use of “I” When Beginning Sentence  [#permalink]

New post 23 Nov 2015, 09:00
FROM mbaMission Blog: Monday Morning Essay Tip: Limit the Use of “I” When Beginning Sentences
Although putting yourself at the center of the stories in your MBA application essays is certainly important, a common mistake applicants tend to make is beginning too many sentences with the word “I.” As a general rule, you should never begin two sentences in a row this way. Consider the following example:

“I worked for three years at ABC Plastics, a small injection molding company. I was responsible for overseeing the overall management of ABC Plastics, from day-to-day operations to strategic planning. I managed 100 people. I worked very long hours, but I learned more than I could have ever imagined.”

Now consider the same statement reworked to avoid using “I” at the beginning of subsequent sentences:

“For three years, I worked at ABC Plastics, a small injection molding company. My responsibilities at ABC included overseeing the overall management of the company, from day-to-day operations to strategic planning. Because I supervised more than 100 staff members, my days were long, but the experience taught me more than I could have ever imagined.”

As you can see, the second example reads much better than the first—and none of the sentences in the second example begin with “I.”

Mission Admission: Waitlist Strategies, Part 2  [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 24 Nov 2015, 08:00
FROM mbaMission Blog: Mission Admission: Waitlist Strategies, Part 2
Mission Admission is a series of MBA admission tips; a new one is posted each Tuesday.

Last week, we focused on how waitlisted MBA candidates should respond when their target school asks them to not send any follow-up information. This week, we examine waitlist situations in which the school encourages applicants to provide updates on their progress. In the first scenario, the frustration candidates experience derives from a sense of helplessness, but in the second, candidates tend to lament the lack of time in which to have accomplished anything significant, often thinking, “What can I offer the MBA admissions committee as an update? I submitted my application only three months ago!”

Image

First and foremost, if you have worked to target any weaknesses in your candidacy—for example, by retaking the GMAT and increasing your score, or by taking a supplemental math class and earning an A grade—the admissions committee will certainly want to hear about this. Further, if you have any concrete news regarding promotions or the assumption of additional responsibilities in the community sphere, be sure to update the admissions committee on this news as well.

Even if you do not have these sorts of quantifiable accomplishments to report, you should still have some news to share. If you have undertaken any additional networking or have completed a class visit since you submitted your application, you can discuss your continued (or increased) interest; when you are on a waitlist, the admissions committee wants to know that you are passionately committed to the school. If you have not been promoted, you could creatively reflect on a new project that you have started and identify the professional skills/exposure that this project is providing or has provided (for example, managing people off-site for the first time or executing with greater independence). Finally, the personal realm is not off-limits, so feel free to discuss any personal accomplishments—for example, anything from advancing in the study of a language, to visiting a new country, to completing a marathon.

With some thought and creativity, you should be able to draft a concise but powerful letter that conveys your continued professional and personal growth while expressing your sincere and growing interest in the school—all of which will fulfill your goal of increasing your chances of gaining admission.

MBA Career Advice: Three Tests for Your Resume: The Cause and Effect T  [#permalink]

New post 24 Nov 2015, 12:01
FROM mbaMission Blog: MBA Career Advice: Three Tests for Your Resume: The Cause and Effect Test
In this weekly series, our friends at MBA Career Coaches will be dispensing invaluable advice to help you actively manage your career. Topics include building your network, learning from mistakes and setbacks, perfecting your written communication, and mastering even the toughest interviews. For more information or to sign up for a free career consultation, visit www.mbacareercoaches.com.

Once you have refined your understanding of the results you have produced in your work and couched each bullet on your resume in lay terms that a high school graduate could understand, it is time to make sure your bullets pass the Cause and Effect Test. If you have really thought about the impact of your work and ensured each bullet passes The CEO Test, then there is a good chance you are also passing The Cause and Effect Test. But it happens occasionally that even though a bullet delineates a clear result, it is unclear how the candidate directly achieved that result. Let’ consider an example:

Cause and Effect Test Fail:

  • Improved margins by 26% and created $35M in new profits.
This bullet passes both of the previous tests: it is clear that the CEO would care about this fact, and anyone with a high school education can follow this language. But what is unclear is exactly how the candidate achieved the result. If the reader can’t connect the dots between your actions and your results, then you will at best get partial credit for them.

Cause and Effect Test Pass:

  • Analyzed daily sales volumes and identified opportunity to increase price point in Midwest, resulting in 26% margin improvement and $35M in new profits.
Now we can see!! The candidate produced this result through her analytical skills – she looked at a big data set, extracted some valuable takeaways, and used those to drive profitability improvements. Now we want to give her a job! Let’s look at a few more.

Cause and Effect Test Fail:

  • Received exceptional promotion during a hiring freeze
Cause and Effect Test Pass:

  • Received exceptional promotion during a hiring freeze due to demonstrated excellence in client relationship management and top 10% revenue generation in class
Cause and Effect Test Fail:

  • Reduced customer dissatisfaction from 40% to 0 in three months
Cause and Effect Test Pass:

  • Reduced customer dissatisfaction from 40% to 0 in three months by streamlining issue response process, training customer service team, and directly managing key relationships
Notice how much more credible the candidate appears because the cause and effect are both clear. If you ensure that each of your bullets not only conveys your results, but also reveals the specific actions you took to produce them, your resume will truly help you differentiate yourself and stand out from even the most competitive field.

Dean Profiles: William Boulding, Duke University’s Fuqua School of Bus  [#permalink]

New post 25 Nov 2015, 08:01
FROM mbaMission Blog: Dean Profiles: William Boulding, Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business
Business school deans are more than administrative figureheads. Their character and leadership often reflect an MBA program’s unique culture and sense of community. Periodically, we profile the dean of a top-ranking program. Today, we focus on William Boulding from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.

Image

In August 2011, William Boulding became dean of Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. Boulding began teaching at Fuqua in 1984 and served as the business program’s deputy dean before being appointed to a shortened two-year term as dean (a full term is five years) upon the previous dean’s departure. Boulding was then recommended by an international search committee in February 2013 to continue his deanship for a further five years. He has received several distinctions for his teaching in the areas of management, marketing, and strategy, including the school’s 1989 Outstanding Teacher Award and the 1997 NationsBank Faculty Award. A member of the search committee stated in a February 2013 article in Duke’s student newspaper, The Chronicle, that Boulding’s vision for the school would “address globalization with more innovation and modernization in the classrooms, while also focusing on stabilizing the school’s budget.” Another search committee member noted in the article that Boulding “has the whole package, plus he knows Fuqua and Duke intimately.”

In a July 2012 Forbes interview, Boulding described the type of students that attend Fuqua by highlighting the collaborative principles encompassed by “Team Fuqua,” saying, “Increasingly, so called ‘leaders’ seem to fight for narrow self-interest around issues and ideas. At the same time, more than ever before, answers to problems, solutions to challenges, innovation, and the creation of value comes through collaboration and co-creation. … Our students have a burning ambition to make a difference in the lives of others.” Boulding also explained in a February 2013 interview with Bloomberg Businessweek the high rate of success for Fuqua graduates in finding jobs: “The reason they’re [companies are] hiring Fuqua students comes back to what we produce and who we attract, and that’s people who understand how to co-create and take advantage of a team’s potential. It’s people who are personally humble, tremendously ambitious, and have no sense of entitlement.”

For more information about Fuqua and 15 other top-ranked business schools, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.

Beyond the MBA Classroom: Tuck ‘Tails  [#permalink]

FROM mbaMission Blog: Beyond the MBA Classroom: Tuck ‘Tails
Image
When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

Tuck ‘Tails are “happy hours” that occur almost every Thursday at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. Open to everyone on campus, they are typically sponsored by a different student group each week. Faculty and students gather over beer, wine, and other refreshments. A recent graduate we interviewed noted, “The Tuck ’Tails are fun and usually linked to different events and clubs. They are chill but sometimes lead to bigger parties!” The events are generally held on campus, but when the weather is nice, the festivities are sometimes moved to a tent outside or onto the deck in the school’s Living and Learning Complex. Tuck ‘Tails are also hosted around the world by local alumni—in 2015, global ‘Tails have taken place at such cities as Shanghai, Sao Paulo, Milan, and Delhi.

For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at Dartmouth Tuck and 15 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.
