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.

Essay

There is one question for the Class of 2025 application:

As we review your application, what more would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy for the Harvard Business School MBA program?

We think you know what guidance we’re going to give here. Don’t overthink, overcraft and overwrite. Just answer the question in clear language that those of us who don’t know your world can understand.

Joint program applicants for the Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Harvard Law School, and Harvard Kennedy School must provide an additional essay:

How do you expect the joint degree experience to benefit you on both a professional and a personal level? (400 words)
