The admissions team at Cornell University’s Johnson School of Business, just published the essay questions to be included in the application for their full-time MBA program, starting in Fall 2014. Our admissions expert at Admit1MBA is working to analyze them and provide you with tips and guidance on how to ace the application, so come back soon.
Cornell MBA Essay #1 “Who you are”
We continue to ask for the “chapter headings” essay because we really enjoy reading it and get great information about you that we cannot get anywhere else in the process, even the interview.
- You are the author for the book of Your Life Story. In 300 words or less please write the table of contents for the book. Note: approach this essay with your unique style. We value creativity and authenticity.
Cornell MBA Essay #2 “Who you turn out to be”
Instructions: Please answer the following three questions in abbreviated format. (Keep each answer to 150 words or less)
- When did you decide that business school was the next step for you? (Was this an epiphany or an evolutionary process? What was the catalyst that caused you to consider this next step?)
- Johnson values people that make things happen for themselves. Give an example of how you have initiated this for yourself.
- Please describe your immediate post-MBA career goals.
