Harvard Business School:New Essay Word Count

Direct from the Director – MBA – Harvard Business School (hbs.edu)


Essay news:

  • The prompt will remain the same as in previous years: “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 are, however, adding a 900 word limit to the essay. Why, you might ask? Well, we have heard from some applicants that, without a word limit, sometimes questions (and stress) arise about the “right” word length. We hope that including a limit provides applicants with a little more direction and eliminates the stress about how much is too much to write.
  • Do you need to submit 900 words? No, certainly not. Successful applicants may share what they wish to in 500 or 700 words, for example, or go up to 900.


Recommender Questions

Recommendations must be completed online. The recommendation form includes the following questions, along with other types of questions:
  1. 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)

2.   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)

こうした作業を進め、アプリケーションフォーム内のShort Questionsに回答し、最後にEssay  Questionsに取り掛かるといった手順で準備を進めてはいかがでしょうか?



さらには、職場で他の人とうまく付き合いながら仕事を進める対人能力(Interpersonal Skill)にも注目しております。コミュニケーションに長け、自分の意見を明確に、自信を持って表現する姿。そして、聞き上手で共感力があり、常に前向きな姿勢を見せる。時には自分の意見に対して非協力的な、同僚、顧客、カウンターパートを非難せず、自分の意見を述べ、交渉力と同時に説得力に長け、最後には良好な関係性を築いている自分がいる。そうしたエピソードに耳を傾ける中で、いつしか聞き手である私もその中に引き込まれている感覚を覚えます。
