How to write a good MBA essay?

  • The first tip is to start thinking about your topic long before you start working.

Prepare some ideas, make a kind of brainstorming  – it will be easier for you to decide the final theme of your essay. Think about the structure – it is advisable to divide the work into two blocks – the first related  to you (your achievements, skills and others) and the second one, where you can write a few words about the schools in which you apply.

  • Expand your personality

If you do not know how to begin your essay – start with yourself! The reception committee is interested in bright personalities. Even if you don’t have a hands-on experience, you can talk about the strengths of your character, such as responsibility and the desire to learn.

  • Tell about your achievements

Of course, if you are a very modest and shy person, it may be a bit difficult. However, it is effective. Even if such sentences will sound boast – do not worry – it should be! Tell what a great and useful things you have done, how much you know and still want to learn new, and why you should enroll in the school of your choice.

  • Word count control

Carefully observe the size of your work. Read all the requirements and rules – if it says that the text must be  from 500 to 800 words – then comply with this condition. If you decide to write a text of 3000 words, deciding that you will make a better impression – you are mistaken. The commission will most likely decide that you haven’t  read the rules properly, and who needs inattentive students?

  • Editing

Apparently, it is obvious that when your work is written , it  must be re-read. In addition, make sure the text does not contain spelling, grammatical, or punctuation mistakes.
