Make sure you are prepared for the MBA application process, which can be quite strenuous and goes beyond the GMAT, essays, and interviews.
Admission to a top MBA programme is typically very selective. Applicants' profiles are evaluated through an application and an interview. The items that make up an application can be divided into two broader categories – soft skills and hard skills.
Although most of your hard skills cannot be changed, your test scores can be increased. Usually, your GMAT and TOEFL scores are more highly correlated to your academic and professional background and showcase your international exposure. However, there is still potential to improve and emphasise your soft skills.
- Personal and professional project
- Extracurricular activities
- Academic background
- Professional background
- GMAT and TOEFL scores
- International exposure
