Essay questions for classes starting in fall 2015:

1. Please detail your short- and long-term career plans. As part of your answer, please include: (a) how studying both in Switzerland, and specifically on the St.Gallen MBA, would      impact upon these plans; and (b) your back-up plan, should your immediate post-MBA plans not be successful. (max. 500 words)

  • When writing your essay, please keep in mind some of the following suggested guidelines:
  • Focus on how you view your career unfolding from graduation to achievement of your ultimate short term and long term goals. Since your past experiences are likely indicators of your skills and future direction, you will want to briefly outline key aspects of your career history.
  • Furthermore, your future career goals should flow logically from where you have been in your career and build upon what you expect to learn at the St.Gallen MBA. Do your career goals require the skills-set that a St.Gallen MBA degree would provide? Think about the narrative thread of your life and career and how the St.Gallen MBA is going to fit in, then expand into the future you want to make a reality through this education.
  • You can also use this essay as an opportunity to showcase your thriftiness & creativity by expressing an alternative solution to achieving your life ambitions should you not succeed on your first attempt.

2. Think of a well-known business leader, and outline the reasons why you believe he/she is undeserving of his/her public acclaim.
