【2019年9月入学用エッセイ課題】Duke (Fuqua)

Duke, Fuqua Schoolのエッセイ課題が発表されました。
https://www.fuqua.duke.edu/programs/daytime-mba/application-instructions

You’ll need to provide your thoughts on three short-answer questions and two essays as part of your application.

Instructions for all written submissions

  • Responses should use 1.5-line spacing and a font size no smaller than 10-point.
  • Do not repeat the question in the document you upload with your application.
  • Respond fully and concisely.
  • Length requirements vary by question and are detailed below.
  • Responses must be completed before submitting your application.

All submissions are scanned using plagiarism detection software. Plagiarism is considered a cheating violation within the Honor Code and will not be tolerated in the admissions process.

Required Short Answer Questions

Instructions: Answer all 3 of the following questions. For each question, respond in 500 characters only (the equivalent of about 100 words).

  1. What are your short-term goals, post-MBA?
  2. What are your long-term goals?
  3. Life is full of uncertainties, and plans and circumstances can change. As a result, navigating a career requires you to be adaptable. Should the short-term goals that you provided above not materialize what alternative directions have you considered?

First Required Essay: 25 Random Things About Yourself

Instructions:  Present your response in list form, numbered 1 to 25. Some points may be only a few words, while others may be longer. Your complete list should not exceed two pages.

For context: Fuqua believes different types of people, points of view, and experiences bring out the best in everyone. And above all, we place a premium on succeeding while making a positive impact on businesses, organizations, and the world.  These ways of thinking set the Duke MBA experience apart, and this concept extends beyond the student body to include faculty, staff, and administration. When a new person joins the Admissions team, we ask that person to share with everyone in the office a list of “25 Random Things About Yourself.” As an Admissions team, we already know the new hire’s professional and academic background, so learning these “25 Random Things” helps us get to know someone’s personality, background, special talents, and more.

In this spirit, the admissions committee also wants to get to know you–beyond the professional and academic achievements listed in your resume and transcript. You can share with us important life experiences, your likes/dislikes, hobbies, achievements, fun facts, or anything that helps us understand what makes you who you are. Share with us your list of “25 Random Things” about YOU.

Second Required Essay: The Fuqua Community and You

Instructions: Your response should be no more than 2 pages in length.

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 are vital to providing you with a range of experiential learning and individual development experiences.

Based on your understanding of the Fuqua culture, how do you see yourself engaging in and contributing to our community outside of the classroom?

Optional Essay: Tell Us More

If you feel there are circumstances of which the Admissions Committee should be aware, please explain them in an optional essay (such as unexplained gaps in work, choice of recommenders, inconsistent or questionable academic performance).

Please do not upload additional essays or additional recommendations in this area of the application, and limit your response to one page.

そして、スコアの差し替え(UPDATING YOUR TEST SCORE)に関しては以下のように説明されています。

UPDATING YOUR TEST SCORES:
https://www.fuqua.duke.edu/programs/daytime-mba/faq

We encourage you to submit your application with the scores you wish to use. If you would like to update your test scores, please send an email to application-processing@fuqua.duke.edu to ask to have the score updated in your application.

If your updated scores are received after your application has been reviewed, we cannot guarantee that the admissions committee will be able to review your updated score.

こうした出願者からのスコアの差し替えリクエストに関しては、各校のFAQページ(サイト)をご確認ください。

◆英語テストに関する情報
Q. Do I need to submit an English as a Second Language Test score?
https://www.fuqua.duke.edu/programs/daytime-mba/faq

English as a Second Language test scores are not required, but we encourage you to include valid scores that you may have available. If you are applying for the joint degree with the Nicholas School of the Environment (MBA/MEM), please note that ESL test scores are required to complete the joint application.

出願準備に関する相談を承る中で「知りませんでした」という声が意外にも多く聞こえることが、以下のTOEFL等のスコア提出が義務付けられていない点です。2018-19シーズンにおいては、Columbia UniversityもTOEFLやIELTSスコア抜きで出願可能です。出願リストににTOEFLやIELTSスコアが不要となるスクールが並び、志望度が高い場合、その時の状況によってはGRE/GMATのスコアメイキングを優先させるという戦略にて準備を進めるオプションも要検討になるかもしれません。

学部長のインタビュー(Duke Univ., Fuqua School)

以下、Duke, Fuqua School学部長のインタビュー記事が掲載されています。
クラス編成とダイバーシティー、リーダーシップ教育、チームワークといったトピックについてコメントされています。スクールの全体像や教育方針を把握する上で、組織の長でもある学部長の発言やコメントにも注目していきましょう。

<以下、注目点をインタビュー記事より抜粋しました>
About 40-45% of our students are not from the US. We think it’s really important to be a global business school because we’re completely interdependent and it will be better if we recognise that we need to work with people who are different from us.

Leaders should be able to bring about collective diversity which starts with the assumption that we’re stronger because we’re together and we’re different. When people believe you care about them something amazing happens. Then they do have a sense of shared identity. They feel valued and welcome. Supportive ambition is really important.

Our emphasis is on making sure that in our curriculum we not only give people a sense of economic institutions and the way people conduct business but also behaviors that exist in different parts of the world. It’s important to create, practical global first hand experiences for our students, and you need to be someone who can embrace differences.

One of our great advantage is that we’re so fundamentally interdisciplinary. The emphasis is on fostering team spirit, and we have this thing called team Fuqua, which is an important part of our MBA experience.

Has there been an increasing focus on markets like India for US business schools with the growing popularity of GMAC here? We have about 30 students in every class from India.
