Questions to Answer
Our two essay questions are meant to be straightforward, not trick questions. We hope that thinking about and writing your essays will prompt self-reflection and that your essays will go beyond relating the “what” of your experiences, to the “so what” and the “why.”
・What matters most to you, and why?
・Why this program now? What are your personal and professional objectives, and how will the Stanford MSx Program help you achieve them?
We do not limit you on the length of your essays, as we want you to use as many words as you feel necessary to convey your message. Having said that, these are business school essays, and good business writing is succinct and to the point.
