Podcast Interview With NYU Stern’s Isser Gallogly

Isser Gallogly, associate dean of MBA admissions & innovation at NYU Stern

“Sometimes applicants can sell themselves short,” reasons Isser Gallogly, associate dean of MBA admissions and innovation at NYU’s Stern School of Business. The school recently made major changes to its MBA application, including the addition of what the school is calling an emotional intelligence endorsement. “They don’t want to say something that could be perceived as bragging. Some are a bit more modest. Sometimes people can’t see their own skills objectively. I feel these EQ endorsers can do that a bit more than applicants themselves. It’s only in rare occasions where a professional recommendation will move an application to a whole other level. I feel like the EQ endorser may be able to do that for the applicant to a greater level.”
