Put Your Career into Words
To ensure you are a good fit for a particular school or program, highlight your goals in your application.
While graduate business programs are eager to learn who you are as a person, they also want to understand your career goals and what you want from your MBA education. This is to ensure that:
- Their program will provide you with the education you need to succeed
- Your interests, abilities, and personality will make you a good fit with your classmates and the school community
- Your career goals are realistic and can be supported by their career services office
- You are serious about your education and future career
