Handicapping Your MBA Odds — Mr. Global

Yet another video analysis of an applicant who wants to do his MBA at a leading business school. This week’s candidate has killer stats: a 730 GMAT, a 3.88 grade point average from an Ivy League university, and a job working for a high tech startup in Berlin. He’s a 25-year-old American who is fluent in several languages and has spent a lot of time abroad in the Middle East, among other places. We call him Mr. Global.

In this video, the third in a new series, HBSGuru.com Founder Sandy Kreisberg and Poets&Quants.com Editor John A. Byrne evaluate the merits of Mr. Global’s profile and how he should present herself to get into his dream school.
