Describe the biggest commitment you have ever made. (500 words)

This will be our second year using this prompt, which we developed in collaboration with Amy Wrzesniewski, a professor of organizational behavior here at SOM and one of the lead faculty in the core leadership courses within our integrated curriculum. In asking this question, the Admissions Committee is interested not just in the commitment itself but also in how you approach the commitment and the behaviors that support it.

【2018年9月入学用出願締め切り日】 Columbia Business School

Columbia Business Schoolの出願締め切り日が発表されました。

2018 August Entry
・Early Decision Deadline : October 4, 2017
・Merit Based Fellowship Deadline: January 5, 2018
・Regular Decision Deadline: April 11, 2018

2018 J-TERM
・Application Deadline: October 4, 2017

Students may enroll in either August or January. The CBS admissions website notes that the paths are identical in terms of competitiveness of admissions, academic rigor, and student resources, but they differ in terms of timing and the opportunity to complete a summer internship.

The August entry has two review periods — early decision and regular decision. Because CBS uses a rolling admissions process, it is always to your advantage to apply well before the deadline.

All applications are due at 11:59 p.m. EST on the day of the deadline.

【2018年9月入学用出願締め切り日】 Stanford GSB

Stanford Graduate School of Businessより、2018年9月入学用出願締切り日が発表されました。
https://www.gsb.stanford.edu/programs/mba/admission/deadlines

Round 1
Deadline: September 19, 2017
Notification Date : December 14, 2017

Round 2
Deadline: January 10, 2018
Notification Date: March 29, 2018

Round 3
Deadline: April 4, 2018
Notification Date: Mid May, 2018

10:00 am Pacific Time, including your letters of reference and application fee payment. We cannot guarantee that we will review information sent to the MBA Admissions Office after the deadline of the round in which you apply.

Selecting an Application Round

You may apply in any one of the three application rounds each year.

If you plan to apply in round one or two, we strongly encourage you to apply in round one. Over the last few years, the number of applications we receive in round two has increased, making it more competitive.

Do not rush your application, but there are some advantages to applying in either the first or second round, including:

  • The ability to receive a need-based financial aid award from the Financial Aid Office prior to the date by which you must respond to your offer of admission.
  • Ample time to complete recommended quantitative and/or English language coursework prior to arrival on campus.
  • Access to the on-campus housing lottery and/or housing at Highland Hall and Schwab Residential Center.
  • Sufficient time to complete the visa application process (international students).
  • The opportunity to attend Admit Weekend (there is no Admit Weekend for Round 3).

If you want to use one application to apply for both the MBA and MSx Programs, you must apply in Round 1 or 2. You may apply in Round 3 to both programs, but you would need to complete two separate applications.

 

卒業生とのコンタクト

エッセイ、そして面接時にて問われる”Why did you apply to our school?”の質問へ回答内容を強化することはもちろんですが、何よりも自らの留学候補先をよく知るためにも卒業生の体験談は貴重です。UCLA, Anderson SchoolのDean LawrenceがAdmissions Blogsで自らの意見を述べています。
http://mbablogs.anderson.ucla.edu/mba_admissions/2017/03/from-the-deans-desk-top-5-reasons-to-connect-with-alumni-when-applying.html

The process of applying to graduate business school has many important steps – taking the GMAT® exam, writing essays, securing letters of recommendation, visiting campuses, among others. One often overlooked resource to consider is the alumni community. Alumni can provide information that you are seeking and in some cases, information that you may not have considered before.

Below are my top 5 reasons why you should connect with alumni during your application process.

  1. Experience the school culture. Each school has its own culture and climate. Speaking with alumni allows you to experience that culture first hand. You can also ask what type of people attend the school (bankers, consultants, marketers, teachers). Ask if it is a competitive environment, do people support each other, is diversity and inclusion valued at the school, etc.
  2. Get advice on best way to visit campus /see program in full action. Alumni can provide great advice on how to structure your visit, how to contact
    faculty, meet with students, possibly sit in on a class, etc.
  3. Gain insights into career options and opportunities. One of the top reasons you are going to business school is to advance your career. Alumni are great resources to understand the impact of the school’s career management center on his/her career, what companies recruit/hire students at that school, learn about the career outcomes of other alumni.
  4. Provide a window into specific experiences. Business school is not just about taking classes. It is a wonderful way to test your limits and get out of your comfort zone. Alumni can provide a “window” into specific experiences for consideration - favorite courses, school faculty, classmates, global experiences, signature conferences, academic internships, community service, etc.
  5. Get answers to the “I didn’t know what I didn’t know” questions. Alumni can provide information that’s otherwise hard to find, such as answers to questions about financing your MBA and learning about pre-MBA internship opportunities.

At UCLA Anderson, alumni participate in a variety of capacities to help prospects understand the power of the UCLA Anderson MBA. Many alumni host lunch events, inviting prospects to join and learn about the school. Others meet one-on-one within their own firm for a coffee chat, and then more participate in school sponsored events (e.g. recruiting events on the road) to provide their voice on why they chose Anderson.
