Essays

For the 2019–2020 application year, first-time applicants must respond to one essay question and one short answer question. Reapplicants are required to respond to the reapplicant essay question. Essay questions for the upcoming 2019-20 application year will be announced in July 2019.

First-Time Applicants

Essay Question: Describe your short-term and long-term career goals. How can the UCLA Anderson experience add value to your professional development? (500 words maximum) 

Short Answer Question: What are you passionate about and why? (300 words maximum)

Reapplicants

(For applicants who applied for the MBA program in the previous two years) 

Reapplicant Question: Please describe your career progress since you last applied and how you have enhanced your candidacy. Include information on short-term and long-term career goals, as well as your continued interest in UCLA Anderson. (750 words maximum)

Optional Question: Are there any extenuating circumstances in your profile about which the Admissions Committee should be aware? Please use your best judgment. (250 words maximum)

No preference is given in the evaluation process to applicants who submit a response to the optional question.

Please note:

Your essays are the primary way for you to share your perspectives and plans with the Admissions Committee. The best essays are introspective, genuine and succinct in directly answering our questions and responding to our topics.

  • You should try to distinguish yourself by showing what makes you different from others who share similar profiles.
  • Personal expression is what we are looking for, not platitudes.
  • Making a strong case for your future plans requires you to first do research on career paths and find one that resonates. Even if this target will change during business school, your application essays should lay out a clear trajectory for short-term and long-term goals. Do this by demonstrating how you expect to build on skills from your past, and those you expect to gain from the MBA.
  • Essays are more compelling if they include specific courses, programs, groups, opportunities and activities from which you would benefit if admitted to UCLA Anderson. These references are best found through online research, personal discussions and a campus visit (if possible).
  • Content and clarity are key elements, as we seek superior communication skills.
  • Style is a consideration, too, although we understand that those who speak other languages may have different manners of expression in English. We do check your essays for plagiarism, so make sure you always submit your own work.
  • Length does not equal strength. A well-written short essay can have even more impact than a longer essay. Please try to respect the word limits indicated above.
  • All essays and short answer responses are to be submitted in written form only.
  • All essays and short answer responses are to be entered directly in the text box provided in your application.

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

Essay Question:
简单直接的CG + Why school essay。一个完整的career goal通常包含industry, function, location这三方面的信息,然后要提供必要的context让别人理解,你的goal和你的经历、兴趣、性格、价值观以及MBA是如何产生关系的。首先

可以walk through过去的工作经历,解释清楚几段工作/role之间的联系是什么,你做决定背后的逻辑是什么,是什么引导着你这样一路走来,总结一下你从中分别掌握了什么skill。然后说goal,解释这对之前而言extension/progression体现在哪里,让读者看清你的整个职业的big picture。

然后写如何利用Anderson MBA去bridge gap and realize goals。写Why School不能泛泛而谈,而应该充满令人信服的细节,要写出课堂内外各种资源对你而言有什么具体的意义,和你的goal有什么关系,对你胜任未来工作的responsibilities有什么帮助。另外要注意personalize,保证写出来的内容是别人难以复制的。比如,你是如何得知关于学校的这一切的?是campus visit,info session,或者跟哪些校友在什么场合聊过?

Short Answer Question:
这题从去年的contribution演变而来,字数也增加了。我一直觉得越来越多的学校在向Stanford看齐,无论是Yale问biggest commitment,Booth问what influenced the choices in your life,或者是Anderson问你的Passion。Given已经有了第一题,我认为这题可以说一些

工作之外的事情,或者是并不单单依附于一份工作一个角色的事情,比如你喜欢event planning,不仅在学校的时候导演过大型演出,也担任公司年会的策划和司仪。比这个passion是什么更重要的,是它如何影响你,你从中收获了什么,以及可能的,未来如何在Anderson继续将其发扬光大、为community做贡献。
