Search our directory of all leadership programs with a synthesis of each program structure, duration, location, eligibility, work permit, etc. The MBA Development Programs platform is one of the most valuable resources for MBA and MS students today.
I was so impressed by the MBA Development Program Directory that I subscribed to this unique and qualitative service immediately when I moved from Georgia State University to Kennesaw State University?s Coles College of Business. The MBA Development Programme Directory is a useful and well used addition to our MBA careers resources. The MBA-Exchange directory of MBA Development Programs is the "go to" list for students seeking their first and most important step following their MBA studies.
In class we learn the basics and the theory and I found that in the Leadership Development Program we learn how it is done.

The post HBS 2016 Grad Reflects on Her Experience as a Harvard MBA [Episode 154] appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog.
After studying Marketing and International Business at U of Cincinnati, she interned at Neilsen, and ultimately took a full time job there as a brand analyst. The interviewer asked why, if her goal was brand management, she hadn’t considered going straight to PnG (based in Cincinnati).
She addressed the PnG question with more detail, thanked the interviewers, and referenced the questions she’d asked them at the conclusion of the interview. Even though you prepare at home, there’s nothing like being on the ground in person – you pick up a local perspective.
After spring break, she realized how quickly graduation was coming, and that she’s about to part from her b-school friends (who are moving around the country).

As we review your application, what more would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy for the Harvard Business School MBA program?
Since I’ve been in MBA admissions consulting (over 20 years now), HBS has valued concision.
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. Graduation day is fast approaching for business school students, which means most are asking: What’s next? The post Two Years After My Harvard MBA appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog. While some graduates do command incredible salaries eventually, none that I am aware of made millions their first year after school. Furthermore, in many anecdotal cases, those who choose jobs making less money than their peers were often the happiest and found their jobs most rewarding. There is an earning variance between men and women, but it’s not universal that men make more.
Some people believe a myth that with a Harvard MBA you can start slacking and still succeed. The combination of your proven abilities and your access to influential people in their fields matters. Time management, wellness, healthy living, and a lifelong pursuit of learning and growth are all traits you can develop or refine at business school.
No one will be able to convince you that the expense of B-school, roughly $200K in direct costs at most full-time programs today (not to mention opportunity cost, which you hopefully learn about in business school), is cheap. Today’s show has something for pre-meds looking to prepare for the MCAT and for MBA wannabes interested in Harvard Business School. The post MCAT Expertise + Harvard MBA Experience [Episode 145] appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog.
Everyone knows what subjects will be tested – there are a lot of free resources for content review.
For the old exam, he advised 2-4 months prep time; now he advises 6 months, especially if applicants are full-time students.
Aim for the scores you need, not the scores you want – that is, know what it actually takes to get into med school. Factors to consider when deciding whether to retake the exam: the combination of your MCAT and GPA (do you need a higher MCAT to offset a lower GPA?). Schools are adjusting to data from the revised exam, so it’s only natural for scores to be weighted a little less while they get used to the new exam. Launching a full set of practice exams for the new MCAT – the first three are coming soon, and more in a few months.
When you’re looking for help with test prep, consider the track record of the instructor in helping students prep for the exam.
He did the 1st year required curriculum – he loved the courses and especially loved the environment (studying with the talented people in his class). He thinks it’s important to do some soul searching up front: the people who know exactly what they came for do get the most out of b-school. Yes: he’s drawn on it when negotiating contracts, etc – but he’s also found that the skills he gained from the case method help him frame situations effectively and solve problems.
It’s helpful to have direction and goals, even if you’re a career changer who will be using b-school to explore.

The post Harvard MBA, 2+2 and How to Get In appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog.
Our guest today is Adam Nathan, who earned his MBA from Harvard Business School in 2015 as a Baker Scholar and joined Accepted a few months ago.
Why a b-school education is significant—leadership roles, potential to solve problems in both the public and private sector.
More of a focus on helping people develop a sense of purpose—who they want to be, what they want to do, how they want to help other people. He explains that there is a bit of a “pay to play” culture, but that most people see it as an investment that will pay off later. It’s moving away from just numbers and resumes to focusing on who students are as people— their values, what inspires them, how they think about things. He’d worked at Hawaiian Airlines before b-school, so he had an understanding of the challenges facing the airline industry. The post An Interview about Interviewing at HBS: An Accepted Student Speaks appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog. HBS is about to send out their Round 2 invites…if you’re lucky enough to get one, then you’ll want to see this first-hand advice!
Rather than generic behavioral questions, the interviewer prepares tailored questions based on your application.
The easiest way to derail the interview is probably by not being authentic, either through scripted answers or lack of familiarity with one’s own application. What are some of the things you should do when you receive an interview invitation (on the week of the interview and on the day before the interview) in order to ensure that one is best prepared for what is to come?
In the weeks leading up to the interview, it is important to familiarize yourself with current events and monitor news for your industry.

I made some notes after the interview with key things I wanted to capture in the reflection.
The Kellogg curriculum is designed to shape you into a well-rounded leader, ready to drive growth, engage teams and tackle complex problems in your organization.
Depending on your pace, Traditional or Accelerated, you’ll complete the appropriate number of required core courses.
Our core courses are designed to equip students with fundamental business knowledge, analytical skills and the social acumen to succeed in today’s business landscape. If you’re pursuing the Traditional Pace, you are also required to take the seven core courses listed below.
If you’re pursuing the Accelerated Option, you may either take or waive Finance I and Accounting for Decision Making. Build higher-level knowledge and skills through our elective courses, which cover a broad spectrum and provide a deep focus in a variety of topics and industries. Turney is currently a chief resident in the department of occupational medicine and is a board certified medical review officer. Youa€™ll find that our curriculum, team-based coursework and extracurricular opportunities are reinforced by an acclaimed Leadership Development Programa€”all of which work together to establish a concrete foundation for a lifetime of career growth. To see how the Leadership Development Program is tailored to the degree you are interested in, click the appropriate link below. SEVEN AT THE TOPOver its four decades, Vanderbilta€™s Owen Graduate School of Management has produced hundreds of leaders in functions and industries all over the globe.
They've been highly responsive and proactive in ensuring our student utilization objectives are met. It provides an excellent overview of the top hiring opportunities with useful information about companies, functions, industries, and positions. The web-based format is convenient and the Linkedin integration enables us to check with one click which connections we have in a certain company.
They are keen to apply their brimming knowledge to new challenges and respond with enthusiasm to variety of situations that such programs have to offer.
Green is the author of several books, including Breaking Organizational Ties, My Cup Runneth Over, and the acclaimed Awakening the Talents Within.
Green co-founded the Greater East Pasco Achievement Program, a nonprofit tutorial service, which assisted over a hundred students in Washington State.
Green is the former Vice President of the Oak Ridge Chapter of Blacks in Government (BIG) in Tennessee and a BIG lifetime member. She graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 2010 with a degree in Marketing and International Business. The exposure she gained there to online marketing and social media led her to a marketing position at Google. And the essay was pretty difficult – HBS has a broad essay question, and figuring out a strategy was challenging.
After writing a rough draft, she showed it to friends, her mom, and a coach – people she trusted. The way classmates approach cases shows their reasoning process and can help you create better arguments. She’s met great friends, heard wonderful speakers, and made connections to a helpful alumni network. Their client was a fast food hamburger chain – their team’s job was to prepare the business for the next 5 years.
She feels like participating in expensive activities (weekend trips, etc) is a personal choice. She wanted to learn more about brand management, e-commerce, etc – and she wanted to return to tech.
And it’s a unique time in that it’s time off work to reflect and think about who you want to be and what you want to do.
It is very similar to the question posed two years ago, which I though was an excellent question.
And, in today’s tweet- and sound-bite-driven world, it is requiring even shorter responses, at least in the other portions of the application.
News Ranks Best Business Schools in 2016 appeared first on Accepted Admissions Consulting Blog. News survey in fall 2015, of which 129 provided enough information to be calculated in these rankings. As you can see above, while women do make less than men in most fields, they command larger wages in non-profits and HR. Regardless of the industry or function you enter, there is a strong chance that at some point early in your career another alum will be able to help you out in a meaningful manner. For many (myself included), basic habits that I honed daily during HBS continue to be invaluable today in terms of maintaining balance and health. Ben is a Co-Founder and COO at BestReviews, helping arm consumers with confidence and clarity to simplify purchasing decisions. He graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2011 with a BS in BioTechnology and a minor in philosophy.
They started by offering an MCAT question of the day – to help students prepare on a daily basis (and avoid procrastination). Overall, the strategic goals of the new exam are the same as the old one, so there’s some overlap.
Look for someone who’s a good coach and teacher – not just someone who has a high MCAT score. But he realized that a two-year program goes by fast, and he wanted to make more thoughtful, goal-directed choices about his time at HBS. People who know what they want to get out of b-school will be able to use their time more effectively. The other 4 schools in the top 5 remain the same as last year, each pushed down one spot this year compared to last.
Join us for a conversation about Harvard Business School, entrepreneurship, leadership, and admissions. And the people: your classmates are obviously smart and accomplished, but also genuinely nice, good people. He thinks Harvard can start working on this by beginning to shift the definition of success—and that the application process is part of that (asking applicants to present themselves as humans with values rather than just resume items). Most HBS applicants could probably handle the academics, but that’s not sufficient—the committee’s looking for human virtues. At HBS, he wanted to design a better business model for the travel industry and developed Ace Travel, which allows customers to design their travel experience end to end.
Our anonymous interviewee (who was accepted!) is a female manufacturing engineer at a high profile global healthcare company in the U.S. Interacting with current students, seeing the case method in action, and getting a feel for a day in the life of a student was very beneficial, especially before the interview. This can make the interview more challenging in that the questions are more difficult to predict and prepare for. Ways to impress the panel include knowledge of current events in your industry and in other industries, getting them excited about your professional aspirations, and being able to articulate why you chose certain paths. There are some great resources online with typical interview questions, however I recommend not crafting specific answers but instead focus on high level bullet points.
The reflection is a good opportunity to recap one’s strengths, clarify anything from the interview, and thank the admissions team.
It deepens your understanding of how each part of an organization contributes to the success of the whole.

Next, you’ll dive into advanced electives to deepen your knowledge in specific areas. Leverage these courses to achieve your personal and professional goals — whether that means gaining expertise in your chosen industry, taking advantage of our experiential learning courses, filling skill gaps or exploring new areas of business. Turney, MD, MBA, graduated magna cum laude from Fisk University in 1999 and later graduated summa cum laudewith a doctor of medicine degree in 2002. He is slated to complete the occupational medicine training program and his MSPH degree in 2011. The quality and depth of support that Vanderbilt Business students receive is typically reserved for high-level executives, and it reflects the latest thinking and best practices used by top organizations.
The take-up by students has been very good from the start and as a result fewer students miss application deadlines and opportunities. For example, I could learn about designing the corporate training program from the class on strategic alignment of human capital, but I could learn the practical aspects of the implementation of such a program in the organizational environment (such as which parts are more useful, more meaningful, more cost-effective, more challenging) through the LDP.
Wall Street continues to prosper as Main Street bears the financial hardship for our country.
Green, lectures and writes on contemporary issues impacting individuals, businesses, and societies across the nation. He has published over 100 articles on the subjects of decision-making and leadership, which have been syndicated to thousands of websites. One Tennessee paper called him a "20th Century Renaissance Man" because he is a manager, entrepreneur, artist, marketer, poet, producer, personal coach, professor, and author.
After graduating she worked as a Brand Analyst at the Nielsen Company and then in Operations at Google. Having worked in the tech industry, she felt some pushback against returning to school, but she wanted the skills she would gain in b-school (finance, management, etc). Another example is a short course she did over winter break, where they traveled to Ethiopia and Tanzania to study city-building and innovation. The HBS admissions committee has told you what it wants to know in the other sections of the application. Some people changed for personal reasons (geographic preference or relationships), and others moved after being exposed to unexpected opportunities for learning or places they could leverage their expanding skills. In my own case, a friend of a friend from HBS helped me secure a call with a potential client only a few months into my first job after school. However, amazing friendships that enrich your life are not an item you should put a price tag on. His education includes West Point, Harvard Business School, and multiple military schools including Ranger and Airborne School. After completing the first year of his MBA program at HBS, he decided to take a leave of absence to work on a start-up. Let the MCAT be a rite of passage – see it as an important step, rather than something you just have to endure. 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. Before starting at HBS he worked briefly for the White House and then as an Associate and Senior Associate Consultant for The Bridgespan Group, the non-profit associated with Bain Consulting, and finally he worked in Network Strategy for Hawaiian Airlines. Many people come into b-school already well-off, but he concedes this can be tough for students from non-traditional and less affluent backgrounds. Knowing he was HBS-bound allowed him to pursue work he was especially interested in before beginning his MBA.
The admissions committee does a great job creating a comfortable environment where interviewees can get light snacks and refreshments, mingle with other prospective students, and attend events throughout the day. However, this approach also allows the interviewer to use the time most effectively to get to know you. The week of, continue your normal news routine, read your application daily, and reflect on possible questions. I was glad to have some time before my flight the following day to refine the reflection before the 24-hour deadline. While it’s important to stay focused through this final hurdle, it’s also important to find outlets to relax so that you don’t burn out leading up to the interview. It equips you to approach problems differently, ask better questions and lead with confidence.
Turney is interested in the use of health policy to promote quality, affordable and accessible health care in communities across the country. Vanderbilt is the only business school that has partnerships with KornFerry and Hogan Assessments, top leadership development organizations used by Fortune 500 companies; and, like these successful firms, Owen calls upon an extensive network of certified executive coaches to work with our students in one-on-one and group settings. And they presented their recommendations to the company’s leadership team, who said they’re going to implement some of them. These were questions I was asking myself two years ago as my own graduation from HBS approached. Moreover, many dozens of my peers found something amazing, unexpected, and risky, and yet were comfortable making a leap into the unknown given the confidence in their future derived in large part from graduating from HBS.
Someone else without your academic background may feel they have something to prove, and they could be prepared to work rings around you. Without his support this prospective client might have never spoken to me (as they had turned down calls with other sales representatives from my company for months). Using the knowledge I gained from business school to help others has made a lasting difference in both business relationships as well as personal ones. They’ve also upgraded their prep materials in response to the actual exam after it was released.
He sees a risk of losing relationships, but the potential to explore projects and consider his goals for when he goes back. The day before, go over the top things you want the interviewer to remember about you, any breaking news, and try to relax as much as possible. The answer to that question is not something I can give or even suggest to you in a blog post aimed at the many. Putting in the work, even after a grueling education, is still required for  success, as well as gaining the trust of others for increased responsibility and authority. With this kind introduction a relationship was formed, and eventually a deal was closed, and later on this client was one of the largest revenue drivers for my entire business unit.
Helping a friend polish his or her resume or prepare for an interview, and then watching them get a job offer, is a pretty exciting experience. In 2007, Turney opened and managed a nonprofit health care center designed to help the underserved in Toney, Ala. His FamilyVision column, syndicated through Newspaper Publishers Association, has reached over 200 newspapers and more than 15 million readers across the country. There is typically one interviewer and one observer, with the interview itself being very conversational. Again, refer to the HBS criteria, as you contemplate possible topics, but the options are infinite.
