Application Instructions – Daytime MBA | Duke’s Fuqua School of Business

First required essay: 25 random things about yourself

The ‘Team Fuqua’ spirit and community is one of the things that sets the MBA experience apart, and it is a concept that extends beyond the student body to include faculty, staff, and administration. Please share with us “25 Random Things” about you. The Admissions Committee wants to get to know YOU – beyond the professional and academic achievements listed in your resume and transcript. Share with us important life experiences, your hobbies, achievements, fun facts, or anything that helps us understand what makes you who you are.

Your list will be limited to 2 pages (750 words maximum). Please present your response in list form, numbered 1 to 25. Some points may be brief, while others may be longer.

Second required essay: The Fuqua community and you

Fuqua prides itself on cultivating a culture of engagement. Our students enjoy a wide range of student-led organizations that provide opportunities for leadership development and personal fulfillment, as well as an outlet for contributing to society. Our student-led government, clubs, centers, and events are an integral part of the student culture and to the development of leaders. Based on your understanding of the Fuqua culture, what are 3 ways you expect to contribute at Fuqua?

Your response will be limited to 1 page (500 words maximum).

Optional essay: Tell us more

If you feel there are circumstances of which the admissions committee should be aware, please explain them here (e.g. unexplained gaps in work, choice of recommenders, inconsistent or questionable academic performance). Note that you should NOT upload additional essays nor additional recommendations in this area. The Optional Information section is intended to provide the admissions committee with insight into your circumstances only.

Your response will be limited to 1 page (500 words maximum).

Harvard Business Schoolの2023-24年出願要項が発表になりました。
Application Process – MBA – Harvard Business School (hbs.edu)

Round 12023年9月6日

Round 22024年1月3日


Applications received after September 6, 2023 will be considered in Round 2. Applications received after January 3, 2024 will not be considered. Please note that each “round” represents a distinct period in which you may apply, not a succession of steps for your application. You may apply in one round only, one time in an application year.

GMAT/GRE Information

  • When submitting your application, you may report the unofficial GMAT or GRE score given on the day of the test for tests taken at GMAT or GRE testing centers, or your official score if you have received it. Every applicant must request that Pearson (for the GMAT) or ETS (for the GRE) send an official score report directly to HBS.
  • For the 2023-2024 application cycle, we will not accept the GMAT Focus exam for Round 1 and Round 2; we will accept the GMAT Focus for 2+2 applications.
  • We require you to complete the AWA portion of the exam; however, you do not need the results in order to submit your application. Note: If you took the online version of the GMAT prior to the addition of the AWA section (i.e. before May 20, 2021), we will accept those test scores without the AWA as long as they have not expired.
  • We accept online versions of the GMAT or GRE. Please plan accordingly as scores from online tests may take time to be received.

★今秋以降に導入が予定されているGMAT Focus Editionのスコアは審査用に提出することはできませんのでご注意ください。

〇 Essay課題(昨シーズンと同様の内容です)
As we review your application, what more would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy for the Harvard Business School MBA program?

We think you know what guidance we’re going to give here. Don’t overthink, overcraft and overwrite. Just answer the question in clear language that those of us who don’t know your world can understand.

Recommendations must be completed online. The recommendation form includes the following questions, along with other types of questions:

*How do the candidate’s performance, potential, background, or personal qualities compare to those of other well-qualified individuals in similar roles? Please provide specific examples. (300 words)

*Please describe the most important piece of constructive feedback you have given the applicant. Please detail the circumstances and the applicant’s response. (250 words)



今シーズンのアプリカントの中にはGW期間中を利用し、出願予定校を訪問している方々もいらっしゃいます。近年ではウェビナーやYou Tube動画から多数の情報を入手可能です。しかしながら、キャンパスの「雰囲気」から、何を感じ取れるか。そのコミュニティーにはどのような人が集まり、どのようなカルチャー(例:協力的かつ協調的など)が育まれているのか、また、在校生との交流を通してスクールが掲げる価値観が伝わってくるかなどのチェックポイントがあります。もちろん、アプリカント全員が自分の出願校を訪問することは難しいと思いますが、アドバイスを送る際には、できるだけ学校訪問を出願計画に組み入れることを勧めています。帰国後は、その見聞きした色々な情報をもとにこの先の出願戦略を考え、さらには進学希望理由に関して強い説得力を持てるようサポートしていきます。
