【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。
http://www.adammarkus.com/results/#results-overview

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.

■Recommendations

All first-time applications require two recommendations. Reapplicants are required to submit one new recommendation. If you have been working full-time for at least six months, one recommendation should be from your current supervisor. If you are unable to secure a recommendation from your direct supervisor, please submit a statement of explanation in the Employment section of your application.The second recommendation should be from either a former direct supervisor or from another professional associate, senior to you, who can share their insights on your candidacy.

If you are a college senior or have worked full-time for fewer than six months, at least one, but preferably both, of your recommendations should be from a person who can comment on your managerial abilities. You may ask a summer employer or another person whom you feel can objectively assess your professional promise. The second recommendation may be from a college professor.

Please note that Columbia Business School and several of our peer institutions use similar, if not identical, recommendation questions. This is an effort on our part to make the process easier for your recommenders. We expect that you, the applicant, will not participate in the drafting of these recommendations. Applications are not considered complete until all required information is submitted. This includes recommendations.

We ask recommenders to consider the following guidelines when writing their recommendations (recommended limit – 1000 words):

  • 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.
  • Please describe the most important piece of constructive feedback you have given the applicant. Please detail the circumstances and the applicant’s response

■ IELTS or TOEFL
・同校への出願に際し、IELTSおよび、TOEFLといった英語試験のスコア提出は不要となりました。
昨シーズンの段階では、Duke (Fuqua), MIT(Sloan), Yale、そしてIMDといった各校へ出願する際においても、IELTSやTOEFLのスコア提出は要求されていませんでした。5月以降には、2019年入学に向けた各校の出願要綱が発表されます。GMATもしくはGREのみで出願可能なスクールが増えることが、出願戦略上において効果的に働くケースが出てくると思います。締切日やエッセイ課題以外の出願書類(テストを含む)にも注意を払っていきましょう。
