MSU Broad MBA interviews – what is the admissions committee looking for?
The 21-month Full-time MBA Program at the Broad College of Business has one of the most diverse student population—in terms of ethnicity, gender, national origin, and professional experience. The program has just around 100 students entering the Full-Time MBA degree program each fall, and has an extensive admission criterion for selecting the best among the large pool of applicants. MSU Broad MBA interview questions therefore are quite ‘broad-ranged’ (no pun intended) too. Expect to answer questions on specific challenges you have faed, your approach to certain situations, and your choice of career. Also expect your interviewer to touch upon non-academic and non-professional aspects of your profile, such as interests outside work, key challenges you have faced..MSU Broad MBA Interview Questions

What is the first picture that comes to mind when you hear the word ‘sapling’? Perhaps that of a small plant, being nurtured to growth. The growth part is spot on, but in this article, sapling refers not to a plant, but to a company founded by a very dynamic entrepreneur – Swetha GB. Swetha has travelled the world, added tremendous value to clients through SAP consulting, and then came back to India to found her own venture, or should we say to nurture her own SAPling. This is Swetha’s story, and the story of how she made it to two top programs at MIT and Stanford GSB, a story of the relevance of the MBA for entrepreneurs, and also one on how Stanford GST appreciates both entrepreneurship and the Indian experience..

Why did this Indian Reject a Ross MBA Admit?

Tackling MBA Admissions Essays for top schools
The MBA Admissions essays are often looked at in one of two ways by applicants. Some look at them as just a formality to be completed, while others see them as the entire scope of the application. As is usual, the truth lies somewhere in between.
MBA Admissions essays matter tremendously, and are the only avenue applicants have, before the interview, to talk about their candidature, their potential, and their reasoning for various career decisions in detail. At the same time, as we will discuss below, the essays are not the end of the process either. The interview is an equally critical part of the process..MBA Admission Consultants India

The Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan is a dream school for many an MBA applicant. Those who seek careers in Operations and in Consulting are especially attracted by the allure of the school. The steely gates of Ross are manned by gatekeepers who are quite particular about the credentials of those who enter. The average experience for the incoming class hovers around 5 years, so to hope to be admitted to Ross with just 2 years of experience was more than even a dream. A dream that Rahul Kumar, a mechanical engineer working with Tata Steel and a GyanOne client, chose to pursue. This is the story of how his dream became reality, with a twist at the end: the success story of Rahul Kumar..MBA Admission Consultants India

Should you take the GMAT or the GRE for MBA applications? This is a question that applicants often ask themselves, and others. While it has been a matter of debate since top schools started accepting GRE scores in addition to GMAT scores, recent data on average GRE scores released by top business schools makes it clear that the field is not even for students taking either exam. Yes, you read that right. Applicants using GRE scores seem to be at an advantage, at least as of now..GMAT or GRE for MBA Admissions?

Duke Fuqua is counted among the US top-10 B-schools across rankings. However, over time, Fuqua has not quite developed the reputation for enabling entrepreneurs that a lot of other schools such as Stanford and MIT have [here’s proof from US News]. That may be entirely because Fuqua hasn’t quite promoted itself in this domain as much as other schools have. Entrepreneurship at Fuqua is not just alive and kicking, but world leading..
