Georgetown’s Newest MBA Application Essays Have Been Announced

Georgetown MBA Essays

The Georgetown University McDonough School of Business recently announced its newest application essays for admission to its full-time MBA and all-new Flex MBA programs.

According to the business school, which announced the new essays on Thursday, August 15, “Applicants can now choose one essay among three essay prompts, allowing them to showcase what they believe sets them apart from other applicants, either their leadership experience, how they have overcome challenges, or their values and beliefs.”

Shelly Heinrich, the McDonough School of Business Interim Associate Dean for MBA Admissions, says, “It’s important to us to that our students represent a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, cultures, and more—and we realized that professional and personal experiences showcasing this diversity do not always fit neatly into a single essay prompt.”

“We want to give applicants the flexibility to distinguish themselves from a competitive applicant pool,” Heinrich adds.

Applicants may submit one of the three following Georgetown MBA essays during their application process, in 500 words or less:

  • Describe a situation when you were asked to lead outside of your comfort zone. What leadership characteristics did you exemplify in this situation that allowed you to succeed?
  • Describe a situation when failure has been your fuel. What was your failure (or when did you not succeed to your full potential), and how did you use this as motivation to move forward and be successful in a future situation?
  • Describe the personal brand that you will bring to business school using examples or experiences that support how you’ve developed it. How do you believe your personal brand will strengthen the McDonough community? As you complete your MBA program, how do you hope to see your personal brand evolve through the transformative experience of business school?

Hopeful entrants to the Georgetown McDonough full-time and Flex MBA programs may apply on October 9, 2018; January 7, 2019; April 1, 2019; and May 1, 2019. Click here to learn more about the school, its MBA programs, and admissions process.
