Harvard MBA Duolingo testの受け入れを開始

先日Harvard MBAの出願締め切りとエッセイ課題の発表をお伝えしましたが、英語テストの要件に変化がありました。Duolingo testの受け入れを開始します。

テストスコアメイキングについては、これまでのGMAT or GREどちらのテストが自分に最適であるか?という議論に加えて、英語のテストについても同様に自分の状況に合わせて適切なテストを選択することが重要です。自分の状況に合わせたテストスコアを選択することも重要な出願戦略です。

A TOEFL, IELTS, Pearson Test of English (PTE), or Duolingo English Test is required if you did not attend an undergraduate institution where the sole language of instruction is English.
If you completed a graduate degree which was taught in English, it is recommended you submit one of these tests, but it is not required.
Scores from ALL of these tests are valid for two years. These tests must be dated January 1, 2021 or more recently to be valid.
HBS only accepts the Internet-based (IBT) version of the TOEFL.
HBS does not have a minimum test score to apply, however, the MBA Admissions Board discourages any candidate with a TOEFL score lower than 109 on the IBT, an IELTS score lower than 7.5, or a PTE score lower than 75, or a Duolingo score lower than 130 from applying.

6月に数多くのMBAプログラムが出願締切日、応募要項を発表しました。1stラウンドでの出願を目指す方は、7月からは本格的な出願書類作成が重要です。今回は、1stラウンド出願を目指す方に向けて、出願書類作成に向けてのアドバイス、特に主にエッセイへのアプローチについて記します。

Top MBAエッセイ課題分析ゼミ7月開催決定

2021-2022出願⽤アプリケーションの理解を深めるためのゼミです。当ゼミを通じて各校の出題意図を理解ることで、エッセイ作成プロセスを効果的に進めることができます。

解説対象校:
Harvard Stanford Wharton Columbia Kellogg Chicago Booth MIT
Berkeley Haas UCLA Anderson Cambridge Oxford INSEAD LBS

詳細はこちら
https://www.agos.co.jp/pdf/TopMBASeminarSeriesEssay.pdf

エッセイ課題の種類を理解する

エッセイ課題は主に以下の3つに分類されます。まず、これらの理解を深めることがエッセイ作成準備の第一歩です。

Vision essay
キャリアゴールエッセイといわれるものです。主に①なぜ皆さんのキャリア開発にMBAが必要か、②特定のプログラムへの志望動機、③MBA卒業後のキャリアゴールを問う課題になります。この課題に正しくアプローチするためには、①②③に対しての整理ができていることが必要です。エッセイの中で頻出の課題になります。

課題代表例:Wharton
How do you plan to use the Wharton MBA program to help you achieve your future professional goals? You might consider your past experience, short and long-term goals, and resources available at Wharton. (500 words)

Strengths essay
Leadership/Teamwork/Problem-solving/Creativity など実に幅広い領域で出願者の強みを問う課題になります。

課題代表例:Kellogg
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)

Personality essay
MBA留学を有意義にするためには。クラスで知識を向上させるだけではなく、積極的にMBAコミュニティ活動に所属し、クラスメートとの交流を図り、自己成長(personal growth)やネットワーキングの機会を得ることも重要です。このMBAコミュニティの意義を理解しているか、そのコミュニティにあなたがふさわしいか、適正があるかを問う課題になります。

課題代表例:Chicago
An MBA is as much about personal growth as it is about professional development. In addition to sharing your experience and goals in terms of career, we’d like to learn more about you outside of the office. Use this opportunity to tell us something about who you are… (Minimum 250 words, no maximum.)

エッセイ作成準備前のチェックリスト

• Post MBA Career goalsはクリア?short term and long term に分けて説明できる?
• MBAで得たいものを具体的に知識/スキル/経験の観点から整理ができている?
• MBAで得たいものを 志望校MBAプログラムで提供されるコースワーク、体験学習(Experiential learning opportunities)、クラブ活動やインターンシップなどの具体的な材料を使って説明ができる?
• 自身の強み/弱み(改善ポイント)/自分の特徴について整理ができている?
• 自身の強み:MBAコミュニティに貢献できる強みが整理できている?
• 自身の弱み:MBA学習の経験を通じて改善するための努力をしている?
• 自分の特徴:MBAコミュニティを理解し、自身の特徴を活かした貢献をイメージできている?

出願校のエッセイ課題の理解を深める

上記の基本整理を行った上で、志望校のエッセイ課題に正しくアプローチするために必要なステップを記します。

Mission Statement/Admission Criteriaの理解

各学校は出願者に求めている人材像を上記に具体的に記しています。そして、出願者にその資質を持ち合わせているかを出願書類を通じて理解することを想定しています。さらに、このプロセスを行うことは、皆さん自身も自分に合った学校に進学することを確認する上でも重要なプロセスです。

エッセイ課題全体の理解と各エッセイの活用方法の戦略ねり

各学校は求めている人物像を確認するツールとして、エッセイ課題を活用します。さらに、エッセイは1題だけではなく複数設定されていることも多いので、やみくもに各課題に回答するのではなく、エッセイ課題やその他オンラインアプリケーション内の質問も含めて、課題全体で自分の強みをアピールすることを考えることが重要です。まず、全体像を決め、その上で、1つ1つの問いに回答することが効果的なアプローチとなります。

Application
Essay A: What matters most to you, and why?

For this essay, we would like you to reflect deeply and write from the heart. Once you’ve identified what matters most to you, help us understand why. You might consider, for example, what makes this so important to you? What people, insights, or experiences have shaped your perspectives?

Essay B: Why Stanford?

Describe your aspirations and how your Stanford GSB experience will help you realize them. If you are applying to both the MBA and MSx programs, use Essay B to address your interest in both programs.

Length

Both essays combined may not exceed 1,050 words. We recommend up to 650 words for Essay A and up to 400 words for Essay B. We often find effective essays that are written in fewer words.

Short Answers (Optional)

In the Essays section of the application, we ask you to tell us about who you are and how you think Stanford will help you achieve your aspirations. We are also interested in learning about the things you have done that are most meaningful to you. If you would like to go beyond your resume to discuss some of your contributions more fully, you are welcome to share up to three examples (up to 1,200 characters, or approximately 200 words, for each example).

Question: Think about times you’ve created a positive impact, whether in professional, extracurricular, academic, or other settings. What was your impact? What made it significant to you or to others?

In answering this question, consider how your background, such as your work, education, skills, interests, culture, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, where/how you grew up, and/or other factors had an impact on your recent actions and choices (up to 1,200 characters, or approximately 200 words).
