“Don’t be afraid to show your personality, your inner self,” advises Victoria Susakova, director for Eastern Europe and Central Asia at IE Business School. “We give you opportunities to do that because we don’t ask for a personal statement because they are more or less the same. Instead, we give you some topics and you choose three of them to develop, such as how do you imagine the CEO of the future, or how are you going to manage a team across the globe in 50 years time. The cool thing is that instead of writing essays, you can do something different. You can shoot a video or make a presentation. We place lots of importance to this part of the application process because we are looking for unique personalities. We want to see the person behind the CV and the diplomas.”
