As part of my application package to the business school I'm applying to, I have to write a 500 word statement of purpose. However, the school does not provide a question for me to respond to, they simply request a statement of purpose. I have no idea where to begin with this, and was curious what you guys think I should try to include. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I think you should focus on your career till date, why you are interested in an MBA, why the school, your goals during and after the MBA program if you are selected and how it fits to your long term goals.

In the most sincere way possible, I suggest you use it to explain your purpose for wanting to attend business school.

Why do you want to get an MBA, what do you hope to achieve? Why is this school able to help you achieve that? And don't forget - what can you contribute to the school and to your classmates.
