Organization makes a difference during the MBA admissions process
It is not always easy for people of faith to track down a master of business administration (MBA) program that reflects both their professional and religious values. As a result, when they find a Christian university that offers such an option, they are going to want to do everything in their power to receive an acceptance letter.
Bloomberg BusinessWeek recently highlighted a few steps business school applicants can take early on in the MBA admissions process to increase their chances of getting into their ideal Christian universities.
For example, the news source suggested that applicants create a chart that details what exactly each institution requires of them before they become a candidate. This includes taking a look at each school’s essay questions to see how different or similar they are, as well as finding out what each program’s stance is on interviews.
With all this information clearly laid out before them, applicants can decide what they want admissions officials to know about them and where they can best deliver this information.
No matter what strategies individuals use during the admissions process, getting organized is time well spent. After all, an MBA degree from an on-campus or online Christian university may open doors to a variety of career opportunities. The Graduate Management Admission Council recently reported that 62 percent of soon-to-be MBA and graduate management degree holders had job offers before completing their studies.
