At that age and stage, do you really need a two year MBA or a reputed finishing school where you build a great network and round off your business knowledge?
The good news is there are specific programs that cater to this applicant pool.
We want people who can redefine solutions to conventional problems, and strive to preempt unconventional dilemmas with cutting-edge ideas. Taking the above into consideration, please submit a cover letter seeking a place in the MIT Sloan MBA Program.

Without a sincere appreciation of its unique program offerings and community culture – gained by thorough networking, thoughtful research, and, whenever possible, a visit to its campus – the admissions committee may not assess you a good fit.
The second question is an appeal to share something much more personal, beyond your transcripts, test scores and professional achievements.We seek thoughtful leaders with exceptional intellectual abilities and the drive and determination to put their stamp on the world.We welcome people who are independent, authentic, and fearlessly creative — true doers.In announcing that its 2018-2019 application is available, Booth’s admissions blog debuted the following MBA essay questions: Booth’s new first question cuts to the chase, departing from the more abstract way of eliciting your b-school motivations through “Booth moments.” In doing so, it asks you to connect your coherent and compelling career vision to how the Booth MBA – in particular – will help you to achieve your greatest ambitions.It’s a version of the standard favorite, ‘Why an MBA and why school,’ and significant introspection is critical to writing an essay that’s both persuasive and genuine.MIT Sloan seeks students whose personal characteristics demonstrate that they will make the most of the incredible opportunities at MIT, both academic and non-academic.We are on a quest to find those whose presence will enhance the experience of other students.Fortuna’s Julie Ferguson, former Chicago Booth Senior Associate Director of Admissions, offers this perspective: “The new, more direct approach asks applicants to be clear and concise about their motivations – the ‘moments’ format didn’t necessarily ask candidates to map out their whats and whys of an MBA.The flexibility of the curriculum requires students to have a firm grasp on why they need and want an MBA, so that they’re poised to take full advantage of the choices available to them.” As a Booth’s former Assistant Director of Admissions, it strikes me as typical Booth to recast its essay questions this way.Your ability to articulate clear goals, even if they inevitably evolve during the MBA journey, convey your maturity and confidence to the Admissions Committee.It also demands a deep understanding of Booth’s culture, values and what makes it special.
