B-School Chart of the Week: GMAC Survey Reveals Products/Services and [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: B-School Chart of the Week: GMAC Survey Reveals Products/Services and Finance/Accounting as Top MBA Industries Although quantifying a school’s profile certainly does not tell you everything, it can sometimes simplify the many differences among the various MBA programs. This week, we bring you a chart to help you decide which of the schools’ strengths speak to you. Each year, the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) conducts a plethora of surveys on subjects ranging from application trends to prospective students’ opinions. The organization recently released the results of its 2016 Alumni Perspectives Survey, which gathers data from business school alumni across the globe. The survey’s findings included a list of the most popular industries among respondents. The top three fields were quite even, as products/services tied for the number-one spot with finance/accounting, both claiming 19% of respondents. Technology was second with 17%, while government/nonprofit trailed closely behind with 11%.The post B-School Chart of the Week: GMAC Survey Reveals Products/Services and Finance/Accounting as Top MBA Industries appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.

Beyond the MBA Classroom: Liquidity Preference Functions at Chicago Bo [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Beyond the MBA Classroom: Liquidity Preference Functions at Chicago Booth 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. Liquidity Preference Function (LPF) is a play on a financial term coined by John Maynard Keynes, and these gatherings are held on Fridays at Hyde Park at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Students and their partners/families gather after classes in a communal area in the Harper Building called Winter Garden for free food and drinks. LPF is a school-sponsored event organized by the Graduate Business Council (a group of students elected by the student body to organize activities). LPFs are often theme based, such as the Mentor-Mentee LPF and one at which the Booth Arts Group displayed the finalists in a photography contest it sponsored, and music and dance performances were featured.For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at Chicago Booth and 15 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.The post Beyond the MBA Classroom: Liquidity Preference Functions at Chicago Booth appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.

Friday Factoid: Preparing for Cold Calls at Darden [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Friday Factoid: Preparing for Cold Calls at Darden UVA DardenMBA students at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business are known to work quite hard amid the rigors of the case method. Each day, they are expected to read and complete their own analysis of a case and then compare and reason through their analysis with a small, diverse learning team of fellow students. Often, students can spend two to four hours prepping on their own and then two to three more with their teammates to arrive at an answer (as opposed to the answer). And, what can be the reward for all of this? They may just be selected for a “cold call” to start off the class.At Darden, most first-year classes and some second-year classes begin with a professor randomly selecting a student to lead the day’s discussion with his/her case analysis. This student can be subjected to anywhere from five to 20 minutes of questioning, as the professor teases out key points of discussion for the broader class to explore. Many a student has sweated through a cold call, only to gain the applause of his/her peers at the end. (Others, of course, may not do as well.) The cold calls can be daunting, but they force students to prepare thoroughly and think on their feet—a key feature of the Darden learning experience.For more information on Darden and any of 15 other leading MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.The post Friday Factoid: Preparing for Cold Calls at Darden appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.

 FROM mbaMission Blog: Beyond the MBA Classroom: Closing Bell at the Yale SOM 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.The Yale University School of Management’s (SOM’s) weekly happy hour, Closing Bell, takes place on Thursday nights. SOM students have no classes on Fridays, so Closing Bell kicks off the weekend. This event is attended by students and their partners as well as by members of the school’s faculty and staff. According to one second year mbaMission interviewed, “It’s a great chance to catch up with friends after a busy week and to make plans for the evening, which often includes a trip to GPSCY [the Graduate & Professional Student Center at Yale, aka Gryphon’s Pub] or other popular watering holes like Mory’s, Richter’s, or Anchor, or quieter dinners and gatherings.”For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at the Yale SOM and 15 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.The post Beyond the MBA Classroom: Closing Bell at the Yale SOM appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.
