THE SHIFT AWAY FROM GENERAL MANAGEMENT IN EMBAs (AN INTERVIEW WITH FUQUA’S JOHN GALLAGHER)

Blast from the Past:

Why B-Schools Reject MBA Applicants

“Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.”

You can’t argue with that observation. Just one problem: It leaves out the price you’ll pay for making a mistake. And mistakes come in forms other than bad judgment, including lack of self-awareness, preparedness, or impulse control.

Sadly, most people won’t point out your mistakes. “It’s uncomfortable,” they think. “It’s not my place.” “I don’t want to start a fight.” Instead, they leave you to repeat the cycle. In the case of an MBA application, you simply get a rejection letter. So much for lessons learned.

But was really behind that rejection letter? Last year, Accepted.com surveyed admissions directors from 13 MBA programs on what causes them to reject a candidate. From poor cultural fit to arrogance, most didn’t hold back. With interviews running and the second round applications coming due, what are some pitfalls you should avoid? Click on the link below to learn the biggest turn-offs for admissions directors.
