Application Essay Prompts

"Application essay topics for Fall 2018 admission: Please note that not all essays are required for all applicants. Only answer questions that are specific to your program type. 1. (All applicants) What are your post-MBA goals upon graduation? Please be as specific as possible, which might include desired roles, target companies, and/or industry. (250 word limit) 2. (All applicants) In three words, how would a coworker or professional mentor describe you? In three words, how would your closest personal friend describe you? (six word limit) 3. (Full-Time, Fast Track, JD/MBA students only) Think of an event that has changed your perspective in the last three years. Describe how this event has impacted your personal or professional outlook. (250 word limit) 4. (Full-Time, Fast Track MBA applicants only) Business is an ever changing and evolving entity. Individual's plans and interests can change as a result of industry downturns and/or emergence of new opportunities. Keeping an open mind while navigating your career is an essential component of success. Should the short-term goals you provided above not materialize, what alternative direction would you explore? (250 word limit) Only Masters of Arts dual degree candidates (MA/MBA) need to answer questions 5 and 6. 5. (MA/MBA students only) How do you plan to make an impact on the arts/non-profit community and how specifically would your graduate education help you do so? (250 word limit) 6. (MA/MBA students only) Tell us about a time in the past three years your opinion about an arts/non-profit organization was changed and how. (250 word limit) There is one optional essay for applicants who feel they need to address issues not otherwise covered in the application (poor undergraduate grades, low test score, etc). This essay is only recommended for students who feel the rest of the application does not adequately share an important piece of information."

Application Essay Prompts

"The MBA Admissions Committee uses your essays to evaluate several aspects of your candidacy. First, your essays tell us a great deal about your career aspirations and what has shaped your life to this point. Second, your essays often reveal your strengths as well as your weaknesses. Finally, your essays demonstrate your written communication skills. Be sure to take time to think about and carefully craft your essay responses. Candidates often ask if they should utilize the optional essay. If you have a unique experience to share with us that is not reflected elsewhere in your application, or if you have work gaps, academic problems or other issues that you would like to address, you should take advantage of submitting an optional essay. We strongly suggest you identify any issues upfront and address them here rather than wait and disclose them in person. Otherwise, please do not feel pressured to submit the third essay simply to fill space."
