Just about every business school MBA application has student write essays to questions so how do you write a good essay which will stand out among the applications? This is your opportunity to effectively relate something important to you and impressive about you to persuade the admissions committee to accept you. Ultimately, schools are trying to find out what differentiates you from other candidates and if you will be a good fit in their programme. So how do you do that?

Firstly, read the question carefully and make sure that you are answering it. Your essay should have a good structure and the information should flow in a logical order. Get someone to read your essay and guess what the question was.

The Nanyang Business School Admissions Committee members read hundreds and thousands of essays each year. Use lively language, anecdotes from your personal and work life to make the essay interesting and which showcase your personality.

Remember to proofread it. Spelling and grammar mistakes are likely to send your application to the rejection pool in the speed of lightning.

So you’ve been shortlisted and invited to the selection interview and what should you expect?  One should view the selection interview as a way of getting to know each party better. The interview panel aims to get to know more about you, your personal and professional achievements, your leadership potential, how the programme can add value to your post-MBA career aspirations and your language proficiency level. On the other hand, you should take this opportunity to ask questions which have not been addressed in the marketing materials, such as if there will be any curriculum changes, how does the business school or programme develop relationships with your post-MBA target industry, etc.

Most importantly, remember to be yourself! Don’t try to think and be what you think the business school wants to see and hear!
