Kenan-Flagler MBA 2015-2016 Essays The Kenan-Flagler application follows the usual trend of fewer required essays this year too. With only one required essay and three optional ones, this might make the process easier for some candidates. The essays are fairly standard and aim to see your focus and passion for MBA and UNC's Kenan-Flagler Business School.

Essay 1
Please describe your short and long term goals post-MBA. Explain how: your professional experience has shaped these goals; why this career option appeals to you; and how you arrived at the decision that now is the time and the MBA is the appropriate degree. (500 words maximum)

So many questions in one essay! Make sure to address ALL of them.

You can take several possible approaches to crafting this essay. One way to write this could be by talking about your past experiences, highlighting the reasons for your career choices and then making a logical, credible case for your future goals.

Alternatively you could show a grand vision of your future and take the reader back into your career path and progression, and demonstrate that you have many solid skills that make you fit for your goals. In both the cases, identify the critical need-gaps from your past and present that can be fulfilled only with an MBA degree. And also be sure to address why now is the best time to move ahead in this direction.

Essay 2 (Optional)
What personal qualities or life experiences distinguish you from other applicants? How do these qualities or experiences equip you to contribute to UNC Kenan-Flagler? (300 words maximum)

A rather blunt question! Instead of the admissions team at UNC trying to decipher what makes you unique and a strong addition to the class, they want you to do that job for them.

If you are thinking how can you show your uniqueness when you don't know what much about other candidates are like, you are right it is a difficult task.
One definitive way to differentiate yourself.
