How to prepare for the MBA Admission Interview

Once you have submitted all necessary documentation for an MBA program and you have finished the entire application process, you still haven’t reached the stage of admission yet. Before you can enroll in an MBA program, you will have to go through the admission interview.

This is the final step in the whole process. The MBA Admission Committee uses this interview to identify and eliminate weaker applicants. On the other hand, it gives you an excellent opportunity to present yourself in the best possible way to get admitted to the programs that you have applied for.

A lot of people think that MBA admission interviews are about factual information. This is not the case at all. Interviewers of the MBA Admission Committee are rather interested in your personal capacities and your personality. That’s what they would like to analyze.

Of course, business schools are interested in academic performances, but there is more. They are also interested in accepting students that will bring fame and good name to their schools, so before admission, applicants’ personalities are measured.

What are Leadership Skills

download-7The Collins English Dictionary determines management as ‘the innovator(s) of an event or team’. Real management, though, requires much more compared to that. An innovator could be the Chief Executive Officer of a company, or a first year worker who leads his or her team to excellence behind the scenes. An innovator could lead with main authority and power, yet very frequently great innovators lead via motivation, persuasion and individual hookups.

Just what is management?
One wonderful interpretation is:
“Management is the fine art of leading others to purposely produce an outcome that would otherwise not have actually taken place”.

Management via Psychological Knowledge
It’s not simply the production of outcomes that makes great management. Great innovators have the ability to intentionally produce difficult outcomes by hiring the assistance of others. They could single-handedly transform falling firms in to Fortune 500 companies, and they could transform societies. Excellent management is a vital secret to business excellence and it’s true in every kind of business from industrial automation to constructive industry.  

The Characteristics of a Great Innovator
Just what makes a great innovator? Here are a few of their crucial characteristics: Continue reading

How to make the most out of college tours

Seeing as it’s summer, now is the time when a lot of kids will start touring campuses they’re interested in attending. Visiting a college is huge, and a lot of times that’s what will inevitably make or break a decision. I know I would have chosen a different school had I not visited all of my options beforehand.

If the college is only a short drive away, then visiting it won’t be too big of a deal. However, if the college is far away from you, you might only get one chance to go there and tour it. It’s important that you get it right and make the most out of it.

For me, the most important part of college tours was the general feel I got from the campus. Some schools I saw had a very prestigious feel, while others had a very laid-back feel. In the end, that vibe you get will help play a crucial part in deciding where you want to go.

You want to make sure that overall feeling is accurate. Here are some suggestions to ensure that it is by making the most of your college tour:

Bring a map.

Perhaps most important, you should never visit a college without bringing a map of it with you. Practically every college has a campus map posted on its website. If you can, find one that has the buildings labeled — science hall, business hall, library, dorms, whatever. It’s good to know what you’re looking at and it will help you see what you need to see.

How To Overcome Your Fears And Excuses – 3 Steps For Doubting Entrepreneurs

Think about it for a sec. How often do you have thoughts about what you can’t do in your business? I can’t make a product. I can’t be a consultant. I can’t build a following. I’m not good enough / smart enough / popular enough / funny enough. These types of thoughts stop you in your tracks.

You’ll miss opportunities. You’ll half ass projects that could’ve been great. You’ll miss your self-set deadlines and lose face with the few customers you gain. All because these doubts make you feel like it’s not even worth trying. All of these doubts and excuses come from being afraid of where you are.

Ready For The Real World?

Before I begin… new layout. It’s slightly out of my comfort zone but I know for a fact that I’ve had a layout similar to this one. I like this one because it’s simple and complex at the same time.
