What is the key to a successful business school application?

The Key to a Successful Business School Application

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” -Oscar Wilde

“How do I get into the top business schools? What can I do to stand out from the competition? Is there a ‘formula’ that will help me get accepted into the MBA programs of my choice? My friend/colleague got into [fill in the blank] by focusing on [fill in the blank] on his/her apps - should I do the same thing?”

I often get asked these questions from clients and prospective clients seeking an edge in the business school application process, and of course, I understand what is prompting these questions. The MBA admission landscape has never been more competitive; for example, Harvard Business School’s acceptance rate for the Class of 2018 was 11% and Stanford’s was 7%. Given such tough odds, how does a candidate shine in a pool of very qualified applicants?

Here’s the answer: by being authentic.

So what does it mean to be authentic? Simply, as Oscar Wilde so aptly stated, by being yourself. Click here for three ways in which to come across as authentic in a business school application.
