B-Schooled Podcast Episode #179: What Do You Bring to an MBA Program?


In order to claim a spot at your dream school, it’s critical that you find a way to let the admissions committee know what your classmates will learn from you and how you’ll be an asset to their program. However, since most schools don’t come right out and ask you to address what you’ll bring to the school’s community, you need to find a way to convey that information throughout your materials.

In this encore episode, we cover ways to communicate the knowledge, experience, soft skills, and interests you’ll contribute to class discussions and be able to bond over with your fellow students.
