【Adam Markus & Affinity英語学院共催: 8/11 (土)】MBA ESSAY QUESTION ANALYSIS: ANALYZE, ANSWER, GET IN!

7月に入り、スコアメイキングもさることながら、エッセイ対策を中心とした出願書類対策にも意識が向き始める頃ではないでしょうか。そして、出願締切日と同時にエッセイ課題を発表している学校も増えてきました。

そうした状況も踏まえ、来月8月11日 (土)にAdam Markus氏とMBA出願対策セミナー(MBA Essay Question Analysis) を共催することになりました。Adamとは、ザ・プリンストン・レビュー・オブ・ジャパン(現:アゴス・ジャパン)でGraduate Admissions Consultingの仕事を共に開始して以来の付き合いとなります。2007年の独立後も、Adamは数多くのアプリカントをトップビジネススクール合格へと導いてきました。そして近年においては、日本人のみならず世界各国のアプリカントに対して卓越した指導力と経験を発揮しております。

Adamの指導実積は下記サイトよりご覧いただけます。

受験生の皆様におきましては、今後の出願準備に弾みを付けていただければ主催者として嬉しい限りです。

同セミナーの詳細は下記をご参照ください。

The objective of this presentation is to help you better understand MBA Admission Essay Questions in order to write effective essays and gain admission.   While examples will be drawn from the M7+INSEAD+LBS, the objective of this presentation is that you learn how to effectively analyze the essay questions for any school.

Part 1: What is an Essay Question?  Isn’t an essay question just one the school defines as an essay?  Well, actually no. This might seem like a strange conclusion but given that some applications include video essays and very extensive application form content, the answer is less obvious.  For our purposes an essay will be considered any application component except the resume, which is prepared by the applicant, and requires an interpretive and not just fact-based answer. Such an inclusive definition is useful when things like video essays and extended application form content are used instead of and/or in addition to essays.

Part 2: Primary Types of Essay Questions. In this section we will look at the types of essay questions using actual examples. Types covered will include goals, accomplishment, failure, leadership, personality, and contribution. The objective will be for you to understand how to identify and address a range of questions.

Part 3: The Essay Set. In this section we will see how an entire set of questions connects together to understand that that an essay component never is isolated but always part of a bigger whole.  We will compare two different essay sets. The objective will be for you to understand how to build a complete portrait of yourself that is focused on what each school is looking for.

Part 4: Trends in Essay Questions for 2018-2019. In this section we will look at the current trends. In particular we will look at video essays and shorter essay sets. The objective will be for you to know how to handle these trends effectively.

Part 5: Questions. I want to leave plenty of time for questions, so please be ready to ask questions related to the above, your individual concerns, or essay questions that I will not have covered.

受講料 16,000円(税込、教材費込)  :入学金は不要です。

出願に関する注意点等を共有させていただきます。

  • To be included in a specific round, applications must be complete and submitted by 23:59pm French time on the day of the deadline.
  • Competition for each round is equal regardless of the intake or round you apply for. We review the pool of applications submitted within each round independently, keeping the “offer ratio” (percentage of candidates accepted vs. applications received) fairly constant across all rounds. By “Class” we are referring to the entire population of students beginning the INSEAD MBA programme at the same time (regardless of campus location).
  • Campus choice is not taken into account when evaluating whether to accept or decline candidates. We will strive to accommodate your campus choice, but if your preferred campus is full, you will be offered the choice of either a place on the other campus or a place on the waitlist for your preferred campus.

GMAT:学力判定試験
Please arrange to have Pearson Vue submit your GMAT test scores directly to INSEAD, code DL3-S8-89. You can take the GMAT up until the day of the application deadline, in this case a copy of your unofficial score report (to be uploaded under “supporting documents” before you submit your application form) is sufficient for us to begin evaluating your file. GMAT scores are valid for five years prior to the application deadline to which you are applying.

NB: In countries where the GMAT test is not offered, we will accept a GRE test instead. Similarly, a GRE test is acceptable for prospective students looking to follow the Dual Degree path. The ETS code for the GRE is 0970.

English Proficiency :英語力判定試験
While we do not have a minimum score required for admission, we advise candidates to aim for a score at or above:

TOEFL IBT: 105; TOEIC (all four parts are required): Listening and Reading: 950TOEIC Writing: 170TOEIC Speaking: 190; IELTS Academic: 7.5

Please note the following:

  *We have added a fourth round of admissions to allow us to better manage the influx of incoming applications and to provide additional flexibility to our applicants

  If you choose to delay submission of your application until the following round of the same intake, your application form details will be saved automatically. Note that access to your form will be temporarily disabled from 00:00am (Central European Time) on the day of the deadline, as the system will shutdown for about four days. Access to your form will resume once the temporary shutdown period ends, so you can continue editing it.

  Please bear in mind that if you miss all four rounds of a particular intake, your application form and its entire contents will expire. At this point, you will be required to complete a new application from scratch, for the next intake.

  To be included in a specific round, applications must be complete and submitted by 23:59pm Central European Time on the day of the deadline.

  To enjoy an optimum application experience and to avoid the peak period, we strongly encourage you to apply a couple of days prior to the application deadline if possible.

  Competition for each round is equal regardless of the intake or round you apply for. We review the pool of applications submitted within each round independently, keeping the “offer ratio” (percentage of candidates accepted vs. applications received) fairly constant across all rounds.

  By “Class” we are referring to the entire population of students beginning the INSEAD MBA programme at the same time (regardless of campus location).
