MIT Sloan School of Management recently released their deadlines and essay prompts for the 2016-17 MBA admissions season.
There are some big changes this year! Instead of a mandatory essay, applicants will be required to submit a cover letter along with their resume (as usual, limited to one page). If you want to include more information, Sloan will continue to offer their optional open-ended prompt that will allow you to use a variety of formats that will help them to consider your candidacy. We strongly recommend reviewing your application and using the optional question to provide more context on your background that you believe will be helpful.
The Sparrey Consulting Group created an exercise in 2012 to help exceptional professionals manage career choices. Today, we’re excited to announce a product name change to ProValues™ - as we change the name, we’ve included several new feature enhancements to help our users better manage their most valuable asset, their career!
The University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business still sees that a picture is worth a thousand words. With a similar prompt to last year’s, the 2016-2017 application submissions are bound to be filled with creativity!
Stanford has kept the same questions over the past few application cycles. We reiterate our suggestions from last year’s blog post (and recommend that you read it for context before jumping into this post), but also wanted to add some additional insights.
