2021年度入学用からExecutive Assessmentスコアを受け付けます。
https://www.gsb.stanford.edu/programs/msx/admission/application-requirements/graduate-tests

Test Score Requirement

The MSx Program is now accepting the Executive Assessment (EA) exam as well as the GMAT and GRE.  The EA is administered by GMAC, so the test is similar to the GMAT exam, but it is shorter and does not have a writing component.  A current GMAT, GRE or EA test score is required for admission to the MSx Program, and we do not offer test waivers. We do not have a preferred standardized test nor do we require a minimum score.  The MBA Program does not accept the EA, so if you are submitting a joint application for the MBA and MSx Programs in Round 1 or Round 2, you will need to have a valid GMAT or GRE score.

Although similar proficiencies are evaluated, generally, the GMAT focuses more heavily on quantitative abilities, while the GRE has more emphasis on verbal skills assessment.

If you have previously taken either test and wish to use that score for your application, your score must be current as of your application round deadline. (GMAT, GRE and EA test scores are valid for five years.)

【2020年9月入学用エッセイ課題】Stanford Graduate School of Business

Stanford GBSのエッセイ課題および作成過程に関する注意事項が発表されました。
https://www.gsb.stanford.edu/programs/mba/admission/application-process/essays

Essay A: What matters most to you, and why?

For this essay, we would like you to reflect deeply and write from the heart. Once you’ve identified what matters most to you, help us understand why. You might consider, for example, what makes this so important to you? What people, insights, or experiences have shaped your perspectives?

Essay B: Why Stanford?

Describe your aspirations and how your Stanford GSB experience will help you realize them. If you are applying to both the MBA and MSx programs, use Essay B to address your interest in both programs.

Length

Both essays combined may not exceed 1,150 words. We recommend up to 750 words for Essay A and up to 400 words for Essay B. We often find effective essays written in far fewer words.

Formatting

  • Double-spaced
  • Number all pages
  • Upload one document that includes both essays

Be sure to save a copy of your essays, and preview the uploaded document to ensure that the formatting is preserved.

Optional Short-Answer Question

The two required essays shed light on who you are and how you imagine Stanford will help you achieve your aspirations. We are also interested in learning about the things you have done that are most meaningful to you. In this section, we provide an optional opportunity to go beyond your resume to discuss some of your contributions more fully.

Please do not include your short-answer response in your essays upload; use the text boxes provided in the application.

Optional Short-Answer Question:

Think about times you’ve created a positive impact, whether in professional, extracurricular, academic, or other settings. What was your impact? What made it significant to you or to others? You are welcome to share up to three examples. (Up to 1500 characters, approximately 250 words, for each example)

Editing Your Essays

Begin work on the essays early to give yourself time to reflect, write, and edit.

Feel free to ask friends or family members for feedback — especially about whether the tone and voice sound like you. Your family and friends know you better than anyone. If they think the essays do not capture who you are, what you believe, and what you aspire to do, then surely we will be unable to recognize what is distinctive about you.

Feedback vs. Coaching

There is a big difference between “feedback” and “coaching.” You cross that line when any part of the application (excluding the letters of reference) ceases to be exclusively yours in either thought or word.

Appropriate feedback occurs when others review your completed application — perhaps once or twice — and apprise you of omissions, errors, or inaccuracies that you later correct or address. After editing is complete, your thoughts, voice, and style remain intact. Inappropriate coaching occurs when you allow others to craft any part of your application for you and, as a result, your application or self-presentation is not authentic.

It is improper and a violation of the terms of this application process to have someone else write your essays. Such behavior will result in denial of your application or revocation of your admission.

ブレインストーミング-Vol.3:エッセイの作成準備

前回、前々回の投稿から、各校の特有なエッセイ課題を紹介しております。
今回はStanford Graduate School of BusinessのMBA Program、そしてMSx Program (One-year program)の課題として出題されているEssay A “What Matters Most to You, and Why?”を取り上げてみたいと思います。

ESSAY A: WHAT MATTERS MOST TO YOU, AND WHY?
For this essay, we would like you to:
• Do some deep self-examination, so you can genuinely illustrate who you are and how you came to be the person you are.
• Share the insights, experiences, and lessons that shaped your perspectives, rather than
focusing merely on what you’ve done or accomplished.
• Write from the heart, and illustrate how a person, situation, or event has influenced you.
• Focus on the “why” rather than the “what.”
https://www.gsb.stanford.edu/programs/mba/admission/application-process/essays

まずは、これまで築き上げてきた自らのライフ・キャリア(職業+個人的経験を含む)を振り返る過程で諸々の「分岐点」に着目をしてはいかがでしょうか。

各分岐点に差し掛かった時に(自分は)何を考えていたのか?当時、なぜそうした選択肢を選んだのか?他にオプションは存在しなかっただろうか?その時にとった行動にはどういった意味があったのか?さらには、そうした分岐点で経験した(キャリア)イベントを思い返す中で、自分に影響を与えた人物や出来事なども併せて書き出してみましょう。

こうした振り返りの作業(キャリアの棚卸し作業)を行うことは、自らの行動や考え方の背景に存在する”WHY”への回答を用意することへとつながります。

そうして用意した回答内容の分析は、My own career における”Theme”を発見するために必要な作業ではないでしょうか。

【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。

【2019年9月入学用エッセイ課題】Stanford GSB

Stanford GSBのエッセイ課題が発表されました。

Essay A: What matters most to you, and why?

For this essay, we would like you to:

  • Do some deep self-examination, so you can genuinely illustrate who you are and how you came to be the person you are.
  • Share the insights, experiences, and lessons that shaped your perspectives, rather than focusing merely on what you’ve done or accomplished.
  • Write from the heart, and illustrate how a person, situation, or event has influenced you.
  • Focus on the “why” rather than the “what.”

Essay B: Why Stanford?

Enlighten us on how earning your MBA at Stanford will enable you to realize your ambitions.

  • Explain your decision to pursue graduate education in management.
  • Explain the distinctive opportunities you will pursue at Stanford.
  • If you are applying to both the MBA and MSx programs, use Essay B to address your interest in both programs.

Length

Your answers for both essay questions combined may not exceed 1,150 words (1,200 words if you are applying to both the MBA and MSx programs). Each of you has your own story to tell, so please allocate these words between your essays in the way that is most effective for you. Below is a suggested word count, based on what we typically see.

Essay Suggested Word Count
Essay A 750
Essay B 400

Formatting

  • Double-spaced
  • Write the question you are answering at the beginning of each essay (does not count toward the word limit)
