Deciding on Business School

One common business school application question is "Why are you pursuing an MBA?" Although you are not expected to map out your entire life plan before b-school, you should be able to at least provide a thoughtful, well-reasoned response.

According to an survey, the top reasons for pursing a graduate MBA degree are:

  • Opportunity for more challenging and interesting work
  • Personal satisfaction and achievement
  • Long-term income and financial stability
  • Remaining marketable and competitive in a given industry

It's a Big Decision; Be Thoughtful

An MBA is often cited as a life-changing experience and an opportunity to develop extensive leadership, teamwork, management and business experience. Given the commitment and investment required, be sure to investigate all of your options and make the best informed decision for you.
