MBA Application Tips—from the people who make application decisions

When applying for business school you may experience the fear of the unknown. Questions such as: how I can stand out among a sea of applicants, or what should I say in the MBA interview, might spring to mind.

To demystify the process and provide seven simple ways to ace the MBA application process, BusinessBecause turned to admissions experts and students who have been through the process.

MBA application tip 1: Be proactive

Applying for some of the best business schools around will require you to be highly organized and proactive. Pay close attention to which business schools offer Early Action or Early Bird deadlines so you can position yourself ahead of the queue in the MBA admissions cycle.

MBA application tip 2: Craft a strong MBA resume

The MBA resume is the first impression you’ll make on admissions teams so make sure your resume accurately reflects your strengths and abilities. 

MBA application tip 3: Make sure to do your research before completing the MBA essay 

Don’t just send the same MBA essay answers to all business schools—an MBA resume that isn’t tailored to the specific MBA program you’re applying for is unlikely to secure you a coveted spot.

Make sure to conduct thorough research into the program and weave this research into your answers in a way that’s authentic to you.
