MBA News: mbaMission Founder Offers Tips on the HBS Essay

The 2015–2016 admissions season deadlines and essay questions are slowly being revealed school by school, and Harvard Business School (HBS) recently announced its essay prompt.

Jeremy Shinewald, founder of mbaMission, examined the essay question more closely in an article published this week by Poets & Quants, offering applicants ten tips on how to approach the challenge—five recommendations on what to do and five on what not to do. Before sitting down to tackle HBS’s essay, be sure to take a look at Shinewald’s tips!
