Essay Questions
The essays let you explain, in your own words, why you think Kellogg is right for you. Take some time to think through the experiences that led you here and how they have shaped where you want to go.

The following two essays are required of all applicants:
  • Kellogg’s purpose is to educate, equip and inspire brave leaders who create lasting value. Provide a recent example where you have demonstrated leadership and created value. What challenges did you face and what did you learn? (450 words)
  • Values are what guide you in your life and work. What values are important to you and how have they influenced you? (450 words)

Certain applicants will respond to additional questions:
1Y applicants: Please discuss your post-MBA career goal, the current experience you will leverage to support the transition, and the Kellogg 1Y opportunities that will help you reach this goal. (250 words)
JD-MBA applicants: Please discuss your post-JD-MBA career goals and why the JD-MBA Program is the right program to help you reach those goals. (250 words)
MMM applicants: The five core values of the MMM Program are curiosity, creativity, empathy, open-mindedness and a learning mindset. Describe a situation in which you demonstrated one of these values. Why is this value an important part of the MMM experience for you? (250 words)
Reapplicants: Since your previous application, what steps have you taken to strengthen your candidacy? (250 words)

All applicants have the opportunity to provide explanations or clarification in Additional Information. Use this section if you think the person reviewing your application might have a few questions about one or more of your responses. This could include:
  • Unexplained gaps in work experience
  • Academic, GMAT or GRE performance

Karen’s Essay Analysis (个人观点仅供参考,转载请注明出处)

Essay 1: Kellogg非常重视申请人的表达能力和情商,所以Leadership一直是他家essay的标配。Leadership的核心是

让别人配合你,这不是单靠职位、知识、技能等权威,而要有很强的situational awarenss,换言之,善于察言观色,对他人的立场、目标和情绪敏感,进而有针对性地去调整自己的沟通策略,最终获得他人的认同。也就是说,这里你需要讲的不是一个task-focused的故事,而是people-focused的故事。这类文章,申请人常犯的错误是把它写成一个纯粹的individual achivement story:“我找到了问题的关键”;或者把事情的转机写得很小儿科,“我根据大家的优劣势分配了任务”,“我组了个饭局拉近大家的距离”。要注意本题的关键词有这么几个:1)Brave: 你应该做了些不擅长或不确定的事儿;2) Lasting impact: 这不是个transactional的事件,而是带来后续的好处,或很久以后还在被人讨论;3) Challenges: 除了交代困境本身,最重要的是how did you overcome the challenges.
