2022/23 essay question analysis

Essay 1

That gives you a chance to expand on one of your core achievements, ideally something on your resume. 250 words will go quickly, so suggest focusing on an accomplishment that doesn't require too much context to explain. For instance, did you earn a promotion during a period of company cutbacks? Advocate for a budget increase when others were being cut? The best answers here will build upon a positive achievement and tie to your stated MBA goals!

Optional essay

As with other schools, the optional question is available for you to explain any additional information that you may not have had the space to clarify in other parts of your application.
