Beyond the MBA Classroom: Winning the Golden Briefcase [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Beyond the MBA Classroom: Winning the Golden Briefcase USC Marshall MBA students won the Challenge for Charity competition in 2015.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.Founded by a Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) student in 1984, Challenge for Charity (C4C) is a well-attended annual fundraiser that brings students from nine business schools across the West Coast to the Stanford campus to compete in such events as billiards, bowling, and basketball to raise money for Special Olympics and a local nonprofit organization (each participating school selects a nonprofit organization in its area to support). Students earn points by winning the competitions in which their team participates and for each hour of volunteer work they completed during the year. Students who have committed a minimum of ten hours of C4C service in one year are eligible to take part in sports competitions and trivia quizzes during this two-day event, which is held each spring, for the chance to win bragging rights and the coveted Golden Briefcase award.A first-year student told mbaMission about the “GSB Gives Back White Party,” also a C4C fundraiser: “Everyone wears white and raises a bunch of money for charities … Students offer whatever they can, and others bid, so it’s another good way for folks to interact more. Some examples that I can remember were cooking classes, a class on how to make sushi, other learning-type experiences, and tickets to a baseball game. Everyone tries to participate. I’d guess that over 80% of the students here give back.”For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at the Stanford GSB, UCLA Anderson, UC Berkeley Haas, or 15 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.

Friday Factoid: Sustainability at UCLA Anderson [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Friday Factoid: Sustainability at UCLA Anderson Applicants to the UCLA Anderson School of Management may be well aware of the school’s strengths in media and real estate, but they might be surprised to learn that Anderson also offers a cutting-edge multidisciplinary program for students interested in environmental sustainability. The school’s Leaders in Sustainability (LiS) Program is a certificate program that allows Anderson students to take courses at different graduate schools within the university network, thereby offering them opportunities to address issues of environmental sustainability in an interdisciplinary manner. Students must apply to the program, which typically has more than 190 participants from graduate programs across the university.Students in the LiS program must take four classes, including the LiS core course and three sustainability-related elective courses—one of which must be taught outside the students’ primary graduate school. In total, the greater university offers more than 50 sustainability-related courses that Anderson students may choose from, ranging from “Business and Environment” to “Economic Analysis for Managers” to even “Water Law.” In addition to completing the program’s required four courses, LiS students must complete a project related to sustainability and may do so individually or as part of a team with students from at least two other graduate schools within the university.For a thorough exploration of what UCLA Anderson and 15 other top business schools have to offer, please check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.

Monday Morning Essay Tip: Be Honest, but Avoid Negativity [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Monday Morning Essay Tip: Be Honest, but Avoid Negativity Sincerity. Honesty. Candor. We encourage MBA candidates to incorporate these attributes into their applications, and when they do, successful essays tend to follow. Yet, can an applicant go too far? The answer is “yes,” especially when candor turns to negativity. Sometimes, when MBA candidates believe they are being candid, they are in fact revealing themselves to be predisposed to pessimism; as a result, the admissions committee has difficulty identifying with their file. Such situations are unfortunate, but luckily, they are often also avoidable; an ostensibly “negative” idea can almost always be expressed in a positive and optimistic manner.Example:“In my current position, I am no longer learning and am afraid I will continue to stagnate without my MBA. I cannot achieve my objective of becoming a leader in the marketing department at my firm unless…”Common sense would say that the admissions committee would likely not be very excited about accepting an applicant who believes he/she has stopped learning or that his/her career progress can be thwarted by basic obstacles.Revised Example:“As I look to the future, I recognize that with MBA training, I could dramatically increase my impact on my firm. With an eye toward a leadership position in our marketing department, I am…”In this revised example, the candidate is expressing the exact same need for an MBA in positive terms and is thus making him-/herself a more warm and engaging prospect, while still candidly stating a need for further education.Before submitting your file, check for unnecessarily negative statements. Although we would never suggest that every line in your essays must be full of sunshine, you should certainly take steps to avoid portraying yourself as a pessimist.

 FROM mbaMission Blog: Serial Nonprofit Entrepreneur Nancy Lublin Explains Her Drive to Help Women in Need Nancy LublinToday, many aspiring MBAs and MBA graduates want to join start-ups or launch such companies themselves.

Is it really for you? mbaMission Founder Jeremy Shinewald has teamed up with Venture for America and CBS Interactive to launch Smart People Should Build Things: The Venture for America Podcast. Each week, Shinewald interviews another entrepreneur so you can hear the gritty stories of their ups and downs on the road to success.At a relatively young age, Nancy Lublin has established a reputation as a thought leader after serving as the CEO and founder of numerous nonprofit organizations. Lublin’s first spark for the not-for-profit arena, however, came from a place that one might not traditionally think of as an entrepreneurial platform: law school. After founding Dress for Success, which provides women in need with clothing for job interviews, Lublin went on to launch DoSomething.org, a youth leadership organization, and Crisis Text Line, a free, text-based support system. Tune in to the podcast episode to learn the story behind Lublin’s success as she discusses these details and more:Why she believes law schools are where “good ideas go to die”How Dress for Success got its start following a personal loss and the desire to honor a family member’s memory—and why she would not recommend taking financial advice from nuns!How the idea for Crisis Text Line came to Lublin almost accidentally, and why she describes the organization as having been born from “the rib of Dress for Success”Subscribe to the podcast series to make sure you hear every exciting entrepreneurial story!
