Beyond the MBA Classroom: No-Shave November at UC-Berkeley Haas [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Beyond the MBA Classroom: No-Shave November at UC-Berkeley Haas 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.Each year, students at the University of California, Berkeley (UC-Berkeley), Haas School of Business commit to staying unkempt for an entire month. In support of the MBA Challenge for Charity—a nonprofit organization that coordinates local charity fundraisers with nine business schools on the West Coast—MBA students pledge not to shave for the duration of November. According to a December 2012 post on the Berkeley MBA Students blog, at the end of the 30 days, “students auction their faces, heads, chests and other body parts to be shaved in a way the highest bidder wants and wear that hairstyle for the next 24 hours … going to class, doing career treks and interviews.” In 2014, the campaign was renamed “No Shave-No Shame November” to include women and those who have trouble growing facial hair. Participants were able to bid on the chance to shave off willing classmates’ hair and to showcase their talents in a myriad of ways—including rapping and organizing poker games. “Any act in which participants stepped out of their comfort zones for charity was fair game,” one of the event’s organizers said in a December 2014 Haas Now news story.For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at UC-Berkeley Haas and 15 other top MBA programs, check out the The post Beyond the MBA Classroom: No-Shave November at UC-Berkeley Haas appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.

Monday Morning Essay Tip: Employ Active Verbs [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Monday Morning Essay Tip: Employ Active Verbs Anyone who has ever written an email that has been misunderstood—let alone an MBA application essay—is no doubt aware of the subtleties of language and the simple nuances that can change a message’s meaning. Indeed, you can enliven a simple sentence by simply choosing more active verbs.For example, consider the verb “earn.” By using “earn” rather than a more passive verb in the following examples, we can alter the meaning and impact of each sentence. Suddenly, you are in control—suddenly you worked hard and, as a result, accomplished great things.Passive/Bad: “I was promoted from junior to senior analyst.”Active/Good: “I earned a promotion from junior to senior analyst.”Passive/Bad: “After being awarded my MBA, I will be able to….”Active/Good: “After earning my MBA, I will be able to….”Once you have finished your application essays, review them to see how often you can replace certain words with “earn” or a similar verb—such as “achieve,” “gain,” “attain”—that denotes action on your part.The post Monday Morning Essay Tip: Employ Active Verbs appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.
