The MBA Application

November 6, 2013

By Joshua Henry

One of the most common questions I’m asked when speaking with prospective MBA candidates is, “What should I focus on when completing my application?” And despite being asked this question frequently, it always catches me off-guard. The answer I want to give is, “Everything.” I don’t intend that to sound snarky – it’s just true. Admission decisions are made through a holistic review process and all information presented within an application is considered.

In the fall, the life of an admission officer is spent on the road. We travel from city to city to attend recruitment fairs and events. For many aspiring MBA students, attending an MBA fair or recruitment event is among the first steps in the program search process.

That being the case, here are several strategies that can help make your experience at an MBA fair successful.

Why You Should Pursue an MBA

September 17, 2013

By Joshua Henry

At some point during the MBA admission process, aspiring candidates will be asked why they have decided to pursue the degree. It’s as inevitable as it is crucial to have a thoughtful, purposeful response. But before you can compose and articulate personal reasons for pursuing the degree, it’s imperative to explore the broader context of the question. After all, the burden does not rest entirely on you to tell us. It’s our job to inform you why an MBA is a worthwhile investment.

As new and current students, faculty and staff matriculate to their schools and campuses, there’s enthusiasm for the new adventures and shared experiences that lie ahead, but also recognition of the challenges that await and the hard work that will be required. And though it stands as the unofficial end of summer, the new school year feels like the beginning of everything.
