Congratulations on the decision to pursue a professional business degree! Are you wondering where to start? Applying to MBA and specialized master's programs requires careful planning and preparation. Checking these first tasks off your list can help put you on the path to success.

1. Know your strengths.
Make a list of things you do well, outstanding professional accomplishments, what you've learned from your successes (and failures) and your most ambitious goals for the future. These are all items you'll want to talk about in your essays and interviews. You'll also want to start to identify people-such as professors, employers and clients-who can attest to your strengths in letters of recommendation.

2. Pick an admissions test.
You have options for applying to business school, so be sure to choose the best test for you. These days, more students than ever before are submitting GRE® scores with their applications. The test is accepted equally by top-ranked business programs all over the world, and it has several smart features to help you show your best. You can skip questions and go back and review or change answers. You also have the final say on which scores schools will see.
