mbaMission Presents “Constructing a Standout MBA Application Boot Camp” – New York

Introducing a first of its kind MBA application writing class, led by veteran mbaMission admissions consultant Angela Guido: “Constructing a Standout MBA Application Boot Camp.”

Three-Session Class – 12 Hours of Instruction

Throughout this three-session class, we will guide you step by step through the process of creating a compelling MBA application that reveals your unique character and will inspire the admissions committee to grant you that coveted letter of acceptance. In a classroom “workshop” environment, you will brainstorm for unique ideas, outline and structure your essays, prepare multiple drafts of your essays and construct an appropriate resume for your target school. Further, you will get a head start on your recommendations and interviews, and develop a timeline for completing the rest of your applications. The class is designed to jump-start your application process and get you headed in the right direction with all your applications.

Constant Feedback

During this class, you will complete a series of targeted brainstorming and writing exercises, engage with classmates on your work, receive specific feedback and guidance from your peers and benefit from direct access to the workshop leader to hone your final product. You will also learn the key techniques of effective storytelling, which you can then apply to your future professional communications, including other business school applications and interviews.

Expected Outcomes

In this class you will accomplish the following:

  • Understand how to view essays through the lens of the admissions committee
  • Learn to identify the characteristics of a great essay and avoid common pitfalls
  • Dig deep into your past experiences to reveal your most compelling stories
  • Begin constructing your essays/resume for one target school, with feedback and direction from your peers and the instructor
  • Benefit from the workshop leader’s deep subject matter expertise on the MBA admissions process and top programs
  • Workshop your essays and resume in an online session a week and a half after the formal instruction sessions to enhance your drafts and move your work towards the final draft stage

“Now that I’ve started writing essays and have a much clearer idea of what the AdCom is looking for, I am much less overwhelmed by the whole process.” – Christine L.

“I just really feel like you’ve given us the tools to write a good essay. I had no idea what it meant to write a good MBA essay when the class started, and although I feel like I’ve still got a ton of work to do, I do at least feel like I will know when I’ve written my best essay. The curriculum has been great.” – Peter D.
