Michigan Ross changed slightly its first question this year and reduced the number of words available to you for the second essay question. The post Michigan Ross 2016-17 MBA Essay Tips & Deadlines appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog. When appropriate, quantify the impact or provide context. Numbers are a great way to show both contribution and impact.
For the last part of the question (how did it shape who you are today?), think and then focus. Write genuinely about your future career, but realize as Soojin Kwon says that Ross uses the answers to see if business school makes sense. This section should only be used to convey information not addressed elsewhere in your application, for example, completion of supplemental coursework, employment gaps, academic issues, etc. Use this statement if necessary to provide context surrounding circumstances that affected your performance or that may lead admissions readers to the wrong conclusion about your abilities. By Linda Abraham, president and founder of Accepted and co-author of the new, definitive book on MBA admissions, MBA Admission for Smarties: The No-Nonsense Guide to Acceptance at Top Business Schools. Sue saw on LinkedIn that Nicole is a current student at her target MBA program and from a similar background to her own. The post LinkedIn Your Application, Part 3 appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog. In our previous posts about LinkedIn, we explained the four basic sections for any MBA applicant’s profile on LinkedIn. First, LinkedIn offers space for a lot of additions to your profile beyond a traditional resume: you can upload your CV (though I recommend uploading a version without your home address), reports or presentations you have created (though none that are proprietary to your employer), videos (of you presenting at a TEDx conference or of a news story covering a volunteer program you lead, for example), and even photographs within the summary, individual work experience positions, or education (being presented the Medal of Honor by the President or crossing the finish line of your first marathon, for instance).
Second, LinkedIn offers insight into the backgrounds of current students and recent alumni of programs that you are interested in to help you determine your own fit with the program and possible ideas of interests and activities you can pursue now to illustrate that fit.

This interview is the latest in an Accepted blog series featuring interviews with MBA students, offering readers a behind-the-scenes look at top MBA programs. The post Catching Up with Vandana About Kellogg, Apple & International Applicant Tips appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog. Vandana: It was a tough decision to make, but I chose Kellogg predominantly because of the MMM Program. Kellogg has always been known for its collaborative culture and outstandingly supportive people, and this is what stood out for me while I was recruiting for internships. My career coach from Kellogg’s Career Management Center spent many hours reviewing my resume with me, giving me feedback on my cover letters and elevator pitch and just helping me figure out which role was right for me. Vandana: Kellogg had a very handy checklist to help us prepare for the move to Evanston and everything we needed to do before our first day on campus. Vandana: As an international applicant, it was hard to stay confident and not second-guess what I put in my applications. As an international student, there are additional hassles when it comes to moving, getting a student visa, etc. Whatever the essay prompt is, it’s important to let your personality shine through and be able to get the reader to visualize your story and empathize with you. You can read more about Vandana’s b-school journey by checking out her blog, My Journey to Business School.

A Stanford GSB news article states that Jonathan Levin, former chair of the Stanford Department of Economics, will replace the top business school’s current dean, Garth Saloner, as of September 1, 2016.
The post Stanford GSB Names Jonathan Levin New Dean appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog.
Levin, a renowned expert in the field of industrial organization, joined the Stanford faculty in 2000, and currently serves as the Holbrook Working Professor in Price Theory.
In 1994 Levin earned his BS in Math and BA in English from Stanford, and then an MPhil in Economics in 1996 from Oxford and a PhD in Economics in 1999 from MIT. On his appointment to dean, Levin says: “The GSB is devoted to transforming lives by preparing future leaders to change organizations and change the world. And according to Provost John Etchemendy, “Jonathan is an outstanding teacher, a skilled and innovative administrator and a brilliant scholar who has deep understanding of both the academic enterprise and the workings of industry and government. Earlier this week, I talked about the importance of updating your LinkedIn profile and shared tips for a strong Headline and Summary.
The post LinkedIn and Your Application, Part 2 appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog. LinkedIn allows you to list every position you’ve held within a company separately but in my opinion you need to assume that readers will not get far in perusing your full profile if you do, so I recommend only listing your most recent role in each company and then using the 2000-character position summary to highlight the promotions you earned and the impacts you made throughout the company. The Experience section is where LinkedIn parts ways with a traditional resume: instead of using traditional impact bullet points as you would for a resume, LinkedIn works best in paragraph form, telling your story: what was happening in the business environment at the time, what challenges was the company or your unit facing, and what actions did you take? Since you are applying to graduate school, your involvement in your previous campus experience(s) is very relevant: if you were actively involved on campus and earned exemplary grades in the past, you are likely to do so again in your next university. If you would like professional guidance with your LinkedIn profile, please consider Accepted’s MBA resume and LinkedIn editing services. While the GMAT is not always the determining factor for admission, it can be used as a tool to weed out applicants and it can influence a busy reader to read an application a little more quickly and critically.
It’s not easy to grab the attention of the adcom once you’ve lost it with a low GMAT, but it is possible. No business school, even those that are lower ranked programs, will look at your GMAT score at the exclusion of everything else.
People tend to think that top b-schools care only about the quant score of the GMAT, but this isn’t true at all.
You SHOULD retake the GMAT two or three times, but retaking it more than five times may begin to negatively impact your application.
Wednesday is the day we share our application-changing tips on how to apply successfully to Columbia Business School! The Cornell Tech MBA made waves when it offered applicants to its unique program in New York City the opportunity to apply with their LinkedIn profiles instead of filling in the tedious employment history section of the application. The post How LinkedIn Can Help You Get Accepted appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog.
There are four essential areas in the LinkedIn profile that constitute the bare minimum that you need to complete well as an MBA candidate: the headline, summary, experience, and education sections. The headline is the description that is displayed under your name when you appear as a candidate in someone’s search.
The summary offers you 2000 characters to present a full picture of who you are: personality, interests, achievements, passions, and even ambitions. Check out the next post for guidance on using LinkedIn’s Experience and Education sections to their fullest.
The post GMAC Prospective Students Report Highlights appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog. The study reveals that business school applicants are now contemplating applying to fewer types of programs and are more focused on a specific postgrad career path. My observation as a former insider at CBS is that Columbia is looking to build a diverse class of high-achieving world citizens who’ve got a bit of grit. The post The Applicants That Stand Out At Columbia Business School appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog.
A world citizen also means someone who will add their own confident, distinct vibe to a cosmopolitan student body.
It can also mean someone who doesn’t have good test scores or a glossy international background.  But that person (usually a New York local) builds a relationship with an adcom member (though is not annoying!), retakes tests and makes efforts to improve at work or have an impact in the community.

If you’ve read our blog posts, vlogs, etc., you know we caution against relying exclusively and uncritically on rankings to decide where to go (so that means no “I’m just gonna apply to the top-5”).

The post Top Dog Takes MIT Sloan by Storm appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog. Accepted: It’s been more than a year since we last spoke – can you bring us up to speed? Since I made the decision and arrived on campus in August I’ve just been blown away by my awesome classmates, the sense of exciting things happening all the time and the incredible resources available to help me make my next move. Anyone who’s thinking of reapplying needs to take a critical look at their applications and be honest about where they took short cuts. Top Dog: I used to cover some clients in the US but had never spent more than a couple of weeks here until now. Speaking of moving countries, I wrote a comprehensive guide for planning your move overseas which you can find here.
Top Dog: My goal is to do my summer internship either in a large tech firm or at a start-up. Europe is a lot less exciting for me but it does help not to have to worry about those visa issues, so you never know!

Your education is too important for a guessing game, so make sure you get the facts as you are preparing for your MBA. The post INSEAD 2016 MBA Essay Tips & Deadlines appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog. One way INSEAD has followed a trend, however, is by removing the previous job description essays and making them short-answer questions in the application.
At an AIGAC conference a couple of years ago one of the adcom members remembered that an applicant in response to a similar question had listed his weakness as “pitching new ideas in a meeting.” The adcom member felt that the applicant was specific, real, and showed self-awareness by revealing this flaw. Don’t write about “weakness in pitching new ideas in meetings” as your flaw just because you saw it here. With only 400 words to describe two significant experiences, and the specified discussion points, you need to use stories that can be told without a lot of background information.
In discussing what you learned from the experiences and how they impacted your relationships, identify one specific thing for each point for each story – there isn’t room for more.
In choosing your topic story, think about “impact” – often people describe being surprised or emotionally challenged by encountering new or different cultures, but that’s not enough to make this a good essay. Simply discuss the range of activities you participate (or have participated) in – those that are major passions, and those that are “just fun” – clarifying their relative role and importance in your life. The post 3 Long Term Tips For Financing Your MBA Abroad appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog. Once I finished undergrad, I started working part-time in one company, and full-time for another company, simultaneously, in order to make enough money to accomplish my dream of studying abroad. Additionally, I endlessly looked for scholarships and sent tons of applications, with no luck, unfortunately. One afternoon in late March, I received my so longed acceptance letter to London Business School, and the school was offering a partial scholarship. Financial planning and financial responsibility are really important when you decide to study internationally. Admissions Straight Talk is a weekly discussion of what’s new, thought-provoking, and useful in the world of graduate admissions.
Programs from nearly 100 business schools surveyed, some 38,364 graduates, alumni, and recruiters completed the survey – a response rate of 67 percent to determine the strongest executive MBA programs. The corporate survey, which was sent to 845 companies representing 21 industries, yielded a more typical response rate of 31 percent. INSEAD –  Other EMBA programmes may offer leadership courses, but INSEAD includes a programme-long schedule of group coaching, 360-degree assessments and team activities, designed to develop a leadership style that is authentic to you – and thus accelerate your career progress even further.
Harvard Business School – Harvard Business School (HBS) Executive Education prepares executives from all over the world for new levels of leadership in their careers and within their organizations.

Columbia Business School – Executive MBA curriculum is identical to the Full-Time MBA Program’s, and it comes with the same benefits, too.
Tuck School of Business (Dartmouth College)  – Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth designs and delivers learning initiatives that transform individuals and organizations…that help executives improve their performance as leaders so they deliver stronger results…that better equip them to drive growth, innovation, and change for their organizations.

McCombs School of Business (The University of Texas at Austin) – The Texas Executive MBA is an opportunity for intensive learning, intellectual growth, and personal challenge that will help build a solid foundation for career and personal development.

It offers Executive MBA participants a comprehensive package of career services and a wide range of tools to assist them in understanding career management issues and the career planning process.

Choose one or two lessons from this accomplishment that changed how you think or behave and describe those changes.
Sue had a lot of questions about the program, so she sent Nicole a LinkedIn inMail message to see if she was open to speaking with her.
In this post, I’d like to share a bit more detail about some of the additional features that are available from this vast tool and why it makes sense to put together your LinkedIn profile before you even begin your applications. Of the many additional sections that can be added to a LinkedIn profile, the ones that make the most sense for students and graduate school applicants are Test Scores, Honors & Awards, Volunteering Experience, Patents, Projects, and Publications.
Use the University Finder tool to see alumni of each program, the positions they’ve held, the impacts they’ve had professionally and in the community. She is an expert at crafting application materials that truly differentiate you from the rest of the driven applicant pool. I loved the idea of being able to graduate with a Masters in Design Innovation in addition to my MBA, I thought the skills I would develop through this program would be very relevant to the career I want to build in the tech industry, and we definitely have had some cool courses!
I also volunteer for admissions events and prospective student outreach and am on the Food Committee for the new Kellogg building that’s being developed, and I am passionate about all these things. Students are involved with planning and organizing almost every event on campus, and I definitely think club involvement is extremely central to student life, leadership position or not. It is also harder while recruiting because a significant percentage of companies do not hire international students or sponsor work visas, so it’s good to know which these are earlier on.
Context setting is important, and so is using the right language, which brings me to…. It will be an honor to join such a committed, dedicated faculty and to support their mission of applying both academic rigor and real-world relevance to their research.
Importantly, he brings a vision for the future of management education that is rooted in his extensive scholarship on the evolving needs of a global business community. Today, I’m going to address the Experience and Education sections of a powerful LinkedIn profile. Sharing the context surrounding your accomplishments will make those accomplishments even more impressive for the reader.
Therefore, I highly recommend making full use of the space in LinkedIn’s education section to include the activities and leadership roles you held on campus and any excellent academic performance as well as the recognition you may have earned. For an application like MIT Sloan – which allows no space in its online form to detail extracurricular activities, the opportunity to highlight these non-professional roles and impacts here is extremely useful. She is an expert at crafting application materials that truly differentiate you from the rest of the driven applicant pool. It is also sometimes used as a screening tool by elite investment banking and management consulting firms. To do so, you’re going to need to truly blow the adcom readers away with an otherwise impeccable application.
If you earn a perfect GMAT score, but have no work experience, were kicked out of college due to cheating, and have six DUIs, then your score alone won’t be enough to gain you a seat in any MBA program. Think of it as the law of diminishing returns for the GMAT: Putting forth effort to reach excellence is positive, until you’ve put forth so much effort that it begins to make you look bad – like a serial test-taker…or a person who keeps trying but who still can’t cut it.
Other MBA programs like MIT Sloan and UT Austin McCombs are following that trend by inviting applicants to share their LinkedIn profile URLs in their applications. In this post, I will explain a bit about what to focus on in the Headline and Summary, and in the next posts I will explain the Experience and Education sections and share some useful additional tools that LinkedIn offers. You have 120 characters to summarize who you are here, and if you don’t do so, the space will be automatically populated by your current professional title and company.
I recommend opening with your current work and most recent impacts in the first paragraph, then share details of your character, outside interests, and other significant accomplishments in the subsequent paragraphs. The survey, conducted throughout 2015, analyzes the motivations, planned career paths, and program choices of more than 10,000 business school candidates worldwide. 23% are contemplating only specialized business master’s programs, such as Master of Accounting or Master of Finance. Even those who prefer to enroll in an online MBA program still anticipate spending 10% of their time in the classroom to enable opportunities for networking and experiential learning.
Often a specific event or situation triggers a student’s interest in getting a graduate management degree. Of these, 67% use it to research topics related to their graduate management degree education. For a small fraction, it means applicants who are internationally famous due to their own achievements or by association.
The executive education world is facing increasingly crowded, global and intense competition. Now it’s time to move on to the program research stage of the MBA admissions process.
Look for specifics that you care about (structure of curriculum, flexibility, strong concentrations, students from a given industry or geographic region, etc.). You will get the most out of MBA fairs, school information sessions, and school visits at this point in your research, after you already have a good idea of what each program offers and how you’d fit in competitively. Always stay open to discovery – maybe you’ll come across a school in a blog or a respected colleague suggests a program you hadn’t considered. The other 4 schools in the top 5 remain the same as last year, each pushed down one spot this year compared to last.
Through our community platform, we offer financing to thousands of MBA and other Masters degree hopefuls, enabling them to attend the world’s top business schools and universities.
Prior to joining the Prodigy team in March 2013, she worked in the tech startup industry, primarily specializing in the development of online tools for driving performance management and employee engagement. This is compared to graduates of top international two-year programs, who had a median gain of $64,000. Yes, I’m pleased to say the whole application process went more or less according to plan! It definitely won’t work to rehash your previous essays, you need to get help from friends, peers, managers, anyone who can give you fresh perspective on your resume, essays and interview strategy. I’m already working toward this goal and will hopefully use that experience in the same sector or co-founding a start-up when I graduate.
There’s enough information out there for you to keep on top of your applications, that means writing something every single day.
I was tempted to just plough ahead writing what I wanted without listening to others, especially when their advice was critical, but you need to get as many people as possible to review your whole application and then prepare you for interview. You can borrow funds for tuition, fees and living expenses up to the school approved Cost of Attendance budget. Many lenders will offer loans to students with a co-signer or with the school as the guarantor.
While interest rate is a very important component of the loan offer that will determine your monthly payments, students must consider all fees and interest accruals when comparing offers.
True or False: The length of the loan’s term and the loan’s total interest cost have an inverse relationship. Once you have completed your loan application and received an approved offer, lenders can provide you with the Letter of Confirmation that can be used for your I-20 form and VISA application. Most lenders will not require repayment during school and many will offer a grace period of 6 to 9 months following graduation. Loans offered in the US must be repaid in USD, so make sure to think about how you will repay your loans if you return to your home country outside of the US.

Prior to Prodigy, he has spent his career in financial services and employee management solutions.
Give a candid description of yourself (who are you as a person), stressing the personal characteristics you feel to be your strengths and weaknesses and the main factors which have influenced your personal development, giving examples when necessary.
If you can choose one anecdote that reveals both the strengths and the weakness, it’s efficient with space and can strengthen the essay. In fact, by demonstrating these qualities in addition to the requested weakness that he was working on, the applicant actually enhanced his chances of acceptance with his response. Tell us about an experience where you were significantly impacted by cultural diversity, in a positive or negative way. Describe all types of extra-professional activities in which you have been or are still involved for a significant amount of time (clubs, sports, music, arts, politics, etc.). DON’T use it for a superficial summary, a restatement of your other essays, or anything similarly boring and trite. After having experienced a new culture, spoken a different language, tasted other flavours and, most of all, met such diverse friends, I realized a whole new world was opening its doors and I wanted to fully explore it.
For almost three years I worked hard and managed to secure the funding required for my MBA abroad. Along the way, you may find many obstacles, however, discipline and hard work can take you closer.

Nicole is very busy in the program but with one click she went ahead and scanned Sue’s LinkedIn profile to get a sense of where she was coming from.
While many of these will be revealed in the application, the students to whom you will be reaching out to find out about the program may be more forthcoming about their school based on how impressive they find your candidacy. And of course, University Finder is an excellent resource to find current students and alumni of your target programs to connect with and gain unique insights into their programs! If you would like help with your applications, Jennifer can suggest a number of options that work with any budget. I interviewed with multiple companies on campus and was fortunate to have the opportunity to choose between a few internship offers. I received invaluable advice from so many second years at Kellogg who were willing to talk to me about their internship experiences and recruiting process – they volunteered their time to help many first years like myself navigate the recruiting process (despite being busy recruiting for their own full-time jobs) and their stories and insights were critical for my applications and interview prep. But it had everything from what documents we needed to send to Kellogg, health insurance information, visa related information and checklists with timelines, financial aid information and to-do items, housing options and guidance, certain coursework that needed to be completed before arriving on campus and some (optional) links to primers on basic business school fundamentals (excel basics, accounting basics etc).
I found it helpful to talk to current students to get help with moving to US and my career coach and fellow students to navigate the tricky world of recruiting as an international student.
Admissions Officers read hundreds of essays each day, and they don’t just want to know what you achieved at work. Levin is also director of the Industrial Organization Program at the National Bureau for Economic Research and a senior fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research.
If you are currently involved in a volunteer activity or social venture, you may wish to bring the experience to the top of your LinkedIn profile by including it in the Experience section itself; however, even if you do choose to keep the description to the separate Volunteer Experiences section – LinkedIn assuages some of the disappointment at the lack of space allowed for these experiences in the application. If you would like help with your application, Jennifer can suggest a number of options that work with any budget. This includes writing out-of-this-world essays, creating an impressive MBA resume, presenting a flawless transcript, providing outstanding LORs, and – like it or not – having a less-than-ordinary background. Your verbal score indicates your ability to read and write – you can’t really go to business school where the language of instruction is English (or at least not successfully) if you don’t have some mastery over the English language. If after three re-tests you still don’t have the score you desire and there are no extenuating circumstances that are likely to change on the next retake, then you need to cast your school net wider to include programs that better meet your qualifications. While I don’t believe that every applicant’s LinkedIn profile is going to be fully studied, we at Accepted view any additional space to share more about your background with the admissions committees as an opportunity to make your case of admission even stronger.
If you are active in fields outside of your professional role, it makes sense to use this space to present a fuller picture. Similar to a traditional resume’s Qualifications Summary, this section allows you to bring the most unique elements of your background right to the top for the reader.
This is an increase from 2009, when merely 15% were considering only specialized master’s programs.
Those considering a full-time MBA program expect to have 86% of their coursework in a classroom and desire 14% of their courses to be given online.
Possible triggers are looking for a new job but lacking competitive skills (27%), reaching a work plateau (17%), and lacking knowledge to do a job (17%). Facebook and LinkedIn are the most popular sites globally except in China, where Tencent QQ (an instant messaging platform) is most popular. Prospective students often experience a trigger to propel them towards higher education and are starting to put together their short lists of schools approximately a year before application submission.

It’s someone who has mapped out a plan for his or her future, and has done the hard work of really getting to know Columbia’s program and can prove it’s a good fit. He was the Professor of Leadership and Organizational Development at IMD from 2004 to 2011, and currently holds the Shell Chair for Human Resources and Organizational Development at INSEAD in Singapore.
We have to keep innovating and finding new ways to create lasting value for executives and organizations. Ask about their impressions and experiences, and assess how their views align (or not) with what you gleaned from the rankings vis-a-vis competitive fit. 27 schools boasted a 40% female population, compared to only 4 schools with those numbers in 2005.
The FT data shows that this pay gap exists for men and women at the same sector of industry and at the same level of seniority. Alumni were three years post-graduation (class of 2012), so b-schools needed to be at least four years old to qualify. We assess each applicant’s future earning potential (based on the historic achievements of similar postgraduate students) to determine every individual’s personalized loan offer.
She loves travelling, whether it’s for leisure or work – but especially when it’s to meet the students that Prodigy helps to fund their degrees. I got offers from INSEAD and MIT Sloan but was dinged by Wharton after spending the summer on their waitlist. All I can say is that, deep down, I just knew that MIT was the right place for me, especially as a career switcher with a big interest in entrepreneurship.
I’m keeping my options open but really see the US as the best place to achieve those goals, in the short term at least. The interview is your final pitch to adcom about why they should admit you and should be treated as such. Be sure to check with the school for any budget appeals as all loans in the US must be certified and approved by the school.
Some newer and innovative peer-to-peer lenders will assess students on their future potential and not require any collateral or co-signors. Most lenders will be required to share the APR (annual percentage rate), which will provide the effect of all costs of financing.
Be sure to read the details of the loan offer regarding early repayment and any associated fees. If the borrower encounters problems making their monthly repayments, many lenders will offer forbearance arrangements for financial hardship, health issues or extraordinary circumstances. Many lenders offer a variety of repayment methods to make it as easy as possible, but currency fluctuations will be the responsibility of the borrower.
If you choose to write it, produce a tight, focused essay revealing something you haven’t yet discussed.
I am pretty sure I did not know, at that time, what an MBA was, but after talking to many people who had studied abroad, I discovered that such a holistic experience was the right for me, to complement and potentiate my professional background. But just when I was starting to do my research on schools, the government in my home country devaluated the currency. I also did some external consulting projects that contributed to the “cause” of funding my studies. This process can also become quite onerous financially and in terms of dedication (at this point I was working, studying for the exams, sending scholarship applications, talking to alumni from different schools and the list goes on and on). Thus, while we believe these are 25 excellent schools for Executive MBA, like any ranking, it’s not the whole picture.
As a graduate, you also become part of our active, impactful alumni network, which stretches to well over 100 countries around the world and includes influential business leaders in a host of industries. Taking a general management perspective, it takes you beyond the basics to a deep understanding of the forces that will shape business in the future.
The High Tech Club at Kellogg is really top notch and the resources they painstakingly put together to guide us were incredible. It was an A-Z list of everything that we needed to do with timelines, and in retrospect, I can’t imagine not having such a list! If not, talk to a whole bunch of current students to really understand what makes them tick. He was won numerous awards and honors, including the American Economic Association’s John Bates Clark Medal.
We highly recommend that you update your LinkedIn profile and share the link in the application when offered the chance to do so. 71% of those surveyed named a single industry of interest for post-graduation employment, as compared to 58% in 2014. Social media plays a huge role in these students’ lives, and assists in the research for grad school programs. MBA program, had a 5-year gain of $89,100 and it took them 4.2 years to pay back the investment.
Be meticulous in your planning, have several different stories about your experience and practice, practice, practice. 10 years) will provide the borrower with more flexibility and lower monthly payments, the total interest cost over the life of the loan will be significantly greater than a shorter loan term. It also should be something that reveals qualities or attributes about you that are positive and relevant.
The domestic market in my country was depressed, so I used my savings to acquire assets that could then be used as collateral for a loan, or, eventually, I could sell when the market was starting to show improvements, and that way I could protect my savings from currency fluctuations this time.
To spice things up a bit more, two weeks before leaving my country to start my MBA, currency devaluated again but this time I was better prepared to take a risk and invest in my international education.
EMBA candidates have an average of 10-15 years of experience with more than five years of supervisory experience. You can point to an experiences (don’t focus on the same one used in your response to #1) that convinced you that the desired path is right for you. Of course Nicole found the time to speak with Sue: having such impressive fellow alumni was in her best interests! It removed a lot of the stress and guesswork from if and when something needed to be done, and brought structure to what could have been a messy and stressful affair.
A school working to boost its MBA rankings may be more inclined to accept students based on their high stats than others and may also be quicker to offer merit-based financial aid. Not only may the admissions office glance at your profile while reviewing your application, but your interviewer may check you out before meeting you in person. Furthermore, 61% of prospective students mentioned a single job function, up from 46% in 2014. In 2009, 49% of probable students were considering only an MBA program with 22% thinking about only specialized business master’s programs.
They’re looking for admits with resilience and who exude a joie-de-vivre — kind of like the city itself. One of the alumni said that he discussed a “phony weakness” in his essays (required for HBS that year), and his interviewer focused right on it, and basically said, “Come on. Talking to the Financial Aid  counsellors in my school, they suggested a couple of companies that specialize in financing international master students, and that is how I could get the last bit of money I needed to finish paying my MBA. They benefit from the collective knowledge of top Wharton faculty, as well as the experiences and perspectives of an incredibly talented group of peers in a collaborative environment. That experience preferably will show you in a team setting, demonstrating leadership, and showing aptitude for Ross’ MAP.
These numbers changed in 2015, with 36% considering only an MBA program and 46% considering only specialized master’s programs. A campus visit can be a huge plus–confirming for the adcom that you’re serious about attending. This change probably reflects the greater clarity of purpose that applicants are bringing to their application effort. Take advantage of the essay: Give it some thought and respond with the benefit of that reflection.
Maybe talk to an alumnus, to understand how graduating from a particular school changed their career trajectory, the support they receive from the school and what the network is like. THESE VERY SAME ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES, WHO HAVE SWORN TO PROTECT AND SERVE, OUR COUNTRY, AND CITIZENS ,ARE BUT SOME, OF THE CORRUPT,GREEDY TRAITORS .ENGAGED IN THE TYRANNY AND TORTURE.
The admissions process at Wharton is highly selective; it is one of the most competitive business schools in the world.
Ask for specific examples of scenarios that stand out for students and alumni from their time at business school, and this will give a deeper insight into what makes the school tick. Endowment is $825 million).6) Hong Kong UST Business School (Established in 1991, Hong Kong.
By nationality, 88% of the current class of the Kellogg-HKUST EMBA program is international. IMD was formed in January 1990.  IMD has a strong focus on training and developing general management and leadership skills. Kellogg offers full-time, part-time, and executive programs, as well as partnering programs with schools in China, India, Hong Kong, Israel, Germany, Canada, and Thailand. To respond to current trends and serve the needs of business, this will require sharply defined strategies for doing so—and then delivering on those promises.
Fostering diverse approaches to innovation among business schools is a first step in changing perceptions of what business education means to society. BILD, the curricular revision at the Haas School, includes three fundamental shifts within our full?time, evening, and weekend MBA programs. The school runs a range of programs and is consistently ranked among the best in the country. We surveyed more than 96,000 people in an extensive poll, including 3,200 human resource directors from the world’s biggest multinational companies and 21,000 students. The school district has moved to a biometric identification program, saying students will no longer have to use an ID card to buy lunch.A  BIOMETRICS TO TRACK YOUR KIDS!!!!!i»?i»?A TARGETED INDIVIDUALS, THE GREEDY CRIMINALS ARE NOW CONDONING THEIR TECH!

Eventually, such 'subvocal speech' systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists."What is analyzed is silent, or sub auditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley. We numbered the columns and rows, and we could identify each letter with a pair of single-digit numbers," Jorgensen said.
People in noisy conditions could use the system when privacy is needed, such as during telephone conversations on buses or trains, according to scientists."An expanded muscle-control system could help injured astronauts control machines. If an astronaut is suffering from muscle weakness due to a long stint in microgravity, the astronaut could send signals to software that would assist with landings on Mars or the Earth, for example," Jorgensen explained. These are processed to remove noise, and then we process them to see useful parts of the signals to show one word from another," Jorgensen said.After the signals are amplified, computer software 'reads' the signals to recognize each word and sound.
Our Research and Development Division has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the California Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction to run limited trials of the 2020 neural chip implant. We have established representatives of our interests in both management and institutional level positions within these departments. Federal regulations do not yet permit testing of implants on prisoners, but we have entered nto contractual agreements with privatized health care professionals and specified correctional personnel to do limited testing of our products.
We need, however, to expand our testing to research how effective the 2020 neural chip implant performs in those identified as the most aggressive in our society. In California, several prisoners were identified as members of the security threat group, EME, or Mexican Mafia. They were brought to the health services unit at Pelican Bay and tranquilized with advanced sedatives developed by our Cambridge,Massachussetts laboratories.
The results of implants on 8 prisoners yielded the following results: a€?Implants served as surveillance monitoring device for threat group activity. However, during that period substantial data was gathered by our research and development team which suggests that the implants exceed expected results. One of the major concerns of Security and the R & D team was that the test subject would discover the chemial imbalance during the initial adjustment period and the test would have to be scurbbed. However, due to advanced technological developments in the sedatives administered, the 48 hour adjustment period can be attributed t prescription medication given to the test subjects after the implant procedure. One of the concerns raised by R & D was the cause of the bleeding and how to eliminate that problem. Unexplained bleeding might cause the subject to inquire further about his "routine" visit to the infirmary or health care facility. Security officials now know several strategies employed by the EME that facilitate the transmission of illegal drugs and weapons into their correctional facilities. One intelligence officier remarked that while they cannot use the informaiton that have in a court of law that they now know who to watch and what outside "connections" they have.
The prison at Soledad is now considering transferring three subjects to Vacaville wher we have ongoing implant reserach. Our technicians have promised that they can do three 2020 neural chip implants in less than an hour. Soledad officials hope to collect information from the trio to bring a 14 month investigation into drug trafficking by correctional officers to a close. Essentially, the implants make the unsuspecting prisoner a walking-talking recorder of every event he comes into contact with. There are only five intelligence officers and the Commisoner of Corrections who actually know the full scope of the implant testing.
In Massachusetts, the Department of Corrections has already entered into high level discussion about releasing certain offenders to the community with the 2020 neural chip implants.
Our people are not altogether against the idea, however, attorneys for Intelli-Connection have advised against implant technology outside strick control settings.
While we have a strong lobby in the Congress and various state legislatures favoring our product, we must proceed with the utmost caution on uncontrolled use of the 2020 neural chip. If the chip were discovered in use not authorized by law and the procedure traced to us we could not endure for long the resulting publicity and liability payments.
Massachusetts officials have developed an intelligence branch from their Fugitive Task Force Squad that would do limited test runs under tight controls with the pre-release subjects. Correctons officials have dubbed these poetnetial test subjects "the insurance group." (the name derives from the concept that the 2020 implant insures compliance with the law and allows officials to detect misconduct or violations without question) A retired police detective from Charlestown, Massachusetts, now with the intelligence unit has asked us to consider using the 2020 neural chip on hard core felons suspected of bank and armored car robbery.
He stated, "Charlestown would never be the same, we'd finally know what was happening before they knew what was happening." We will continue to explore community uses of the 2020 chip, but our company rep will be attached to all law enforcement operations with an extraction crrew that can be on-site in 2 hours from anywhere at anytime. We have an Intelli-Connection discussion group who is meeting with the Director of Security at Florence, Colorado's federal super maximum security unit. The initial discussions with the Director have been promising and we hope to have an R & D unit at this important facilitly within the next six months.
Napolitano insisted that the department was not planning on engaging in any form of ideological profiling.
I will tell him face-to-face that we honor veterans at DHS and employ thousands across the department, up to and including the Deputy Secretary," Ms. Steve Buyer of Indiana, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, called it "inconceivable" that the Obama administration would categorize veterans as a potential threat.
