Getting Into a Top 10 Program

Getting Into a Top 10 MBA Program: What it Takes to Join the Elite

To get into a Top 10 MBA program you need sky-high GMAT scores, a perfect GPA from an Ivy League school, fluency in five languages, a Nobel prize, and have already started your own successful company. Well, not quite. Though it may seem that way, the top schools are not full of super heroes. They want to know who you are as a person, how you have overcome obstacles, and why you want that top-tier degree. Getting that prized acceptance letter from one of the best programs can be daunting, but with some great application advice it is more attainable than you may think. After all, someone has to fill those classroom chairs. Why not you? We talk to three admissions directors and one author to get their tips and insights on applying to Top 10 schools.

Getting A Rejection Letter: What To Do?

There’s been an uptick of MBA applications in recent years and this means more competition. As more candidates are vying for the same number of seats at business schools, more applicants are unfortunately getting rejected. Some schools encourage you to reapply while others don’t. This time, we’ll learn from admissions officers about the re-application process, where you can find feedback, and how you can recover from rejection and re-energize your application to get accepted next time.

Listen to our most recent show on Re-Applying to Business School After Being Rejected.
