MBA Essay Questions

 

Fall 2014 Essay Questions

 

Use 12-point font, double spaced lines and do not exceed 1600 words for all three essays in total.

 

1.

What matters most to you, and why? (750-word guideline)

 

  • The best examples of Essay 1 reflect the process of self-examination that you have undertaken to write them.
  • They give us a vivid and genuine image of who you are—and they also convey how you became the person you are.
  • They do not focus merely on what you've done or accomplished. Instead, they share with us the values, experiences, and lessons that have shaped your perspectives.
  • They are written from the heart and address not only a person, situation, or event, but also how that person, situation, or event has influenced your life.

 

2.

What do you want to do—REALLY—and why Stanford? (450-word guideline)

 

  • Use this essay to explain your view of your future, not to repeat accomplishments from your past.
  • You should address two distinct topics:
    • your career aspirations
    • and your rationale for earning your MBA at Stanford, in particular.
  • The best examples of Essay 2 express your passions or focused interests, explain why you have decided to pursue graduate education in management,  and demonstrate your desire to take advantage of the opportunities that are distinctive to the Stanford MBA Program.

 

3.

Please answer one of the three questions below. Tell us not only what you did but also how you did it. What was the outcome? How did people respond? Only describe experiences that have occurred during the last three years. (400-word guideline):

 

  A.

Tell us about a time in the last three years when you built or developed a team whose performance exceeded expectations.

 

  B.

Tell us about a time in the last three years when you identified and pursued an opportunity to improve an organization.

 

  C.

Tell us about a time in the last three years when you went beyond what was defined or established.

 

MBA Recommendation Letters

 

Please make sure that all of your recommenders have submitted the online Letters of Reference before the application deadline. We strongly suggest that your recommenders submit Letters of Reference at least one day prior to the application deadline. You should expect that late Letters of Reference will not be included with your application file.

 

Professional / Workplace Recommendations

 

One of these two recommendations must be from a current direct supervisor. If you are unable to provide a letter from your current direct supervisor, include a brief note of explanation in the Additional Information section of the online application. College seniors may use a direct supervisor from a summer/part-time/internship experience or alternatively, from a extracurricular/volunteer/charitable activity.

 

Your second Professional/Workplace Letter of Reference must come from someone else in a position to evaluate your work—another supervisor, a previous supervisor, a client, etc.

 

  1. Please comment briefly on the context of your interaction with the applicant. If applicable, describe the applicant's role in your organization
  2. How do the candidate's performance, potential, or personal qualities compare to those of other well-qualified individuals in similar roles? Please provide specific examples.
  3. Describe the most important piece of constructive feedback you have given the applicant. Please detail the circumstances and the applicant's response.

 

Peer Recommendation

 

This recommendation should be from an individual of equal position with whom you have worked on a project or on a team from any of your extracurricular, professional, chartiable, or other activities.  Choose individuals who have had significant direct involvement with you within the last few years.

 

  1. Please comment briefly on the context of your interaction with the applicant. If applicable, describe the applicant's role in your organization.
  2. Please describe a time when the applicant changed your thinking or actions.
  3. Describe the most important piece of constructive feedback you have given the applicant. Please detail the circumstances and the applicant's response.
  4. (Optional) Are there any additional statements about the applicant's performance, potential, or personal qualities you believe would be helpful to the MBA Admissions Office?
