An MBA degree is a prestigious title that is widely accepted in the world. Competition for admission to a university or business school that offers the MBA degree is very tight. If you intend to take MBA courses abroad, what should be done and avoided in order for you to be accepted?
- Give proof, not promises
While undergoing interview tests, give specific examples of personal qualities or experiences that you describe. For example: You mentioned the ability to lead (leadership) as one of your strengths. Try to explain more about this character, in some specific examples from your own experience, such as the ability to motivate team members and able to think creatively when facing problems.
Go with clear advantages and your background that can make you appear as viable candidate who is worth to be accepted. There’s a good idea to practice explaining what is already written in the letter of application to be better prepared to face this test. And most importantly, be yourself and do not lie to give the impression that you deserved. The selection team reception will know this and certainly your application will be rejected.
- Dig up the information about the university’s objective
You must believe and understand why your destination university is the most appropriate option to continue your education and earn an MBA degree. Recognition and understanding of the university is an important goal. The selection team reception generally wants to know why you chose the specific campus.
Therefore, you should do a little research on the campus and write your understanding as well as possible. The more information you have, the better. Indicate also any available programs that can be beneficial to you or extracurricular activities you want to participate.
- Letter of recommendation to ‘sell’
Who you choose to write a letter of recommendation and what they write will give a big impact on your application. These letters will furnish information about who you are and whether you are worthy to be accepted in the destination university. Explain clearly about the author of a letter of recommendation that you selected (former lecturer or supervisor at work) what you want. Ask them to describe clearly the advantages you have.
- Correct writing
Please recheck your application letter, if necessary, ask your friend to read it to see errors in writing or there may be questions that you answer incorrectly. You should not use the same application letter for a different campus because usually every campus has different qualifications.
