B-Schooled Podcast Episode #166: Career Goals


What do you want to be when you grow up? When you pull together your business school application materials, you might find yourself stumped (in a few different ways) about how to explain your MBA career goals. But don’t worry—we’ve got you covered! This replay of one of our most popular B-Schooled episodes covers:

  • How you should think about and position your short- and long-term career goals in both the short-answer responses on business school applications, as well as in career-related essays.
  • What you should do if you have no idea what your career goals are, or if the main reason you want to go to b-school is to explore different options for your future career path.
  • Whether it’s a bad idea to say you want to completely change careers or stick with what you’re doing now.
