VIDEO: How To Score 16% Higher On The GMAT

MBA application drops, a new degree in French cooking, and the key to GMAT preparation—we tell you everything you need to know this month

There's plenty for you to look forward to this month, as we see the launch of a professional degree in French cooking, tips on how to score 16% higher on the GMAT, and the 10 Twitter accounts every MBA candidate needs to follow.

In our monthly Applicant Bulletin, we give you all the information you need to support your business school application.



Hello, I’m Simon from BusinessBecause, and welcome to this month’s applicant bulletin, where we bring you all the stories and developments you need to support your business school application.


Applications down at Harvard

Applications to Harvard Business School’s MBA program fell by 6.7% between 2018 and 2019. It’s the second year in a row applications have fallen at the school.

Applications were also down at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business, Yale School of Management, and Wharton.

Executive Assessment now accepted on Stern’s full-time MBA

NYU Stern will now accept the Graduate Management Admission Council’s Executive Assessment as part of its full-time MBA application.

Applicants can submit a score when applying to Stern’s two-year full-time MBA and focused one-year MBA programs.

The Executive Assessment, or EA, is shorter than the GMAT and focuses strongly on real-world skills.

While originally designed specifically for Executive MBA programs, the EA has been experiencing expanded usage across a variety of program types since its launch.

Business ethics on the rise for master’s students

Business ethics is one of the most in-demand subjects among master’s students. That’s according to the 2019 Tomorrow’s Masters study by market research firm, Carrington Crisp.

The study asked over one-thousand prospective master’s students to rank their most in-demand subjects.

Business ethics moved into fifth place from 18th last year. The most popular subject was big data and business analytics.

HEC Paris launch professional French cooking degree

HEC Paris has launched France’s first professional degree in French cooking. 

The new double degree is a response to increasing demand from students who want to start a career in the hospitality sector.

The degree is delivered in partnership with French cookery school, L’atelier des Chefs.

The first cohort will begin classes this month.


How to score 16% higher on the GMAT

What if you could improve your GMAT score by 16% without spending a penny?

Mindfulness meditation could boost your score and help beat the stress and insecurity that comes with high stake tests.

Take a moment to slow down and read our piece about how taking ten minutes for yourself could help you ace the GMAT.

Top-10 Twitter accounts every MBA candidate should follow

There are 336 million active Twitter users every month.

The social site can be a maze when it comes to knowing who to follow.

Luckily, we’ve put the top 10 twitter accounts every MBA candidate should follow all in one place.

From Harvard Business Review to TED Talks, we’re sure you’ll find nuggets of wisdom to help you on your business school journey.

From me and the BusinessBecause team, until next month, goodbye.
