New Essays

"This year’s application will require the completion of two mandatory essays.

 

Essay 1:  What do you hope to gain professionally from the Wharton MBA? (500 words)

 

Essay 2: Teamwork is at the core of the Wharton MBA experience with each student contributing unique elements to our collaborative culture. How will you contribute to the Wharton community? (400 words)

 

By asking these two questions, effectively breaking apart and expanding on last year’s essay question, our hope is to give applicants ample space to more fully explain their aspirations, goals, and how Wharton fits into those.  We want to be able to view applicants from both sides of their world – one where they are professionals developing skills and seeking career advancement, but also the personal growth side where they are seeking out enriching experiences to become better, stronger, wiser, and a more robust person.

Take these two questions as an important opportunity to express who you are and what and who you want to be.  It is important for us to know the real you and be able to envision you as part of the Wharton community."

-------

Wharton’s first question is similar to their first question from last year, although the admissions committee is asking for your professional goals alone. The second question is a lot of fun and gives you the opportunity to explain why you are a good fit for Wharton’s unique culture. Stay tuned for a more detailed analysis of these essays.
