Harvard Business School Fall 2017 MBA Essay Question

Harvard Business School SpanglerHarvard Business School has introduced the required essay prompt for the 2016-2017 MBA application season, which is a revisit of the optional question HBS used a few admission cycles back. It is as follows:

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?

Per HBS: There is no word limit for this question.  We think you know what guidance we’re going to give here. Don’t overthink, overcraft and overwrite. Just answer the question in clear language that those of us who don’t know your world can understand.

The post-interview reflection remains a part of the HBS application process. Within 24 hours of the interview, candidates must submit a written reflection through the online application system. Detailed instructions will be provided to those applicants who are invited to the interview process.

For more information, please visit the HBS MBA admissions website. And stay tuned for our expert tips on how best to answer this prompt!
