Specific Advantages

The inevitable “Why MBA?” question can be tricky to answer fully. One of the best ways to show the AdCom their school best fits your goals is to get specific.

Rather than simply naming a class, describe how that class benefits you and your goals. In the above example, the candidate describes what she’ll learn from Professor Harris, how she’ll learn it and what these new skills will allow her to accomplish.

By connecting school resources to your future career, the AdCom will be confident your career plan is well-thought-out and that you’ll be successful in achieving your goals.
