What are the leading business schools looking for in an ideal MBA applicant? How important is a GMAT score? Your undergrad GPA and transcript?
At the CentreCourt MBA Festival in San Francisco on June 24th, admission directors from four elite MBA programs sat down for a panel discussion with Matt Symonds, co-founder of CentreCourt and a long-time business school observer, to answer those very questions.
On the panel were Kirsten Moss, assistant dean and director of MBA admissions at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, Virginie Fougea, director of MBA recruitment and admissions at INSEAD, Kurt Ahlm, associate dean of admissions at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business, and Tina Mabley, assistant dean of the MBA program at the University of Texas-Austin McCombs School of Business.
