B-School Chart of the Week: September 2016 Social Currency Rankings [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: B-School Chart of the Week: September 2016 Social Currency Rankings Rankings come in all shapes and sizes, but can any ranking truly capture social cachet? For a different perspective on the value of an MBA, we turn to the New York Times society pages, where the editors select and profile promising couples. Each month, we dedicate one B-School Chart of the Week to tallying how alumni from top-ranked business schools are advancing their social currency ranking. The year’s busiest wedding season is behind us, but MBAs took advantage of the last opportunities to host summer weddings in September. In fact, the New York Times profiled 23 weddings involving MBAs last month, one more than in August. Harvard Business School (HBS) students and graduates were especially eager to walk down the aisle, as is evident in the three weddings where both the bride and groom were HBS MBAs. One couple, Roanna Wang and Nathan Bruschi, are currently pursuing their respective HBS degrees! Overall, the school was mentioned in five profiled weddings, one involving Wang and Bruschi’s fellow classmate, Kiernan Schmitt. Yale was the alma mater of another couple, Kate Liberman and Eric Gershman, who both received MBAs and MFAs from the school.The post B-School Chart of the Week: September 2016 Social Currency Rankings appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.

Beyond the MBA Classroom: Tuck ‘Tails [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Beyond the MBA Classroom: Tuck ‘Tails 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 2016, global ‘Tails have taken place at such cities as Mexico City, London, Sydney, and Toronto.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.The post Beyond the MBA Classroom: Tuck ‘Tails appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.

 FROM mbaMission Blog: Monday Morning Essay Tip: Own Your Story Many business school candidates unwittingly start their essays with platitudes—obvious or trite remarks written as though they were original. For example, when responding to the essay question, “Tell us about a time when you made a difficult decision,” an applicant might mistakenly write the following:“Managers constantly face difficult decisions. Still, everyone hates indecision.”The applicant does not “own” this idea and cannot lay claim to this statement. A simple alternative would be to insert his/her personal experience and viewpoint into the sentence:“I found myself back in the boardroom with Steve, anticipating that yet again, he would change his mind on the mbaMission file.”By discussing your personal and unique experiences, you demonstrate ownership of your story while engaging your reader. Avoiding platitudes and generalities—and ensuring that you are sharing your experience, rather than one that could belong to anyone else—is a simple but often overlooked step in creating a compelling message.The post Monday Morning Essay Tip: Own Your Story appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.
