Here are the findings for the week prior to June 18th 2018
1. Why Business Students Should Learn Strategic Communications
“Warren Buffett famously said, ‘It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.’
With that sage advice, it comes as a surprise that only six percent of MBA programs require any communications courses.”
2. Why Endorsements May Advantage MBA Applicants
“The graduate school application process can be daunting and highly competitive, particularly in the case of Masters of Business Administration (MBA) programs. The process starts when candidates submit an application that typically includes their resume, cover letter, essays, transcripts, and standardized test scores.”
3. Globally, MBA Apps See Increase
“There is yet another sign that MBA applications are on the rise globally.
A recent report from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) found that, since 2015, average applications per program have increased by 10%, with average enrollments per program rising by 24%.”
