If you’re looking to navigate the economic recession and job uncertainty caused by COVID-19, applying to business school could be a good option.
By pursuing a business masters program in 2021, you can upskill, broaden your network, and gain valuable work experience before re-entering the jobs market. When the jobs market recovers, you'll be in a better position than many of your peers.
Yet, due to the pandemic, applying to business school will be a little different next year, with video interviews, virtual admissions events, and changing admissions requirements.
With this in mind, BusinessBecause spoke to admissions directors and representatives from some of Europe’s top business schools, who gave us their top business school application tips for 2021.
Top Business School Application Tips
1. Engage with target schools in advance
Amy Duckworth, Director of Admissions at Imperial College Business School
“My top tip for applying to business school in 2021 is to engage with your target schools prior to applying.
“Now you’ll need to approach this in a different way compared to previous years. Attending open days and meeting current students at in-person events isn’t really an option given the current situation, but nevertheless, this pre-application research and engagement is still a really important part of making sure the school and the program you’re applying for is the right fit for you.”
