My tips are in blue below.

We have three required essays and two optional essays. The essays for the 2013-2014 application season are:

Essays:

1. What are the 2 or 3 strengths or characteristics that have driven your career success thus far? What are the other strengths that you would like to leverage in the future? (500 words maximum)

Rather than list Strength 1, Strength 2, and Strength 3, I recommend you start with one brief story that illustrates 2-3 of your strengths and shows you as a contributor and doer. Then analyze how those traits have contributed to your career success. Remember to describe your accomplishment in terms of impact and to quantify as much as possible.

Weave into your essay the response to the second questions — a trait that you would like to take advantage of in the future — into your conclusion.

2. Please describe your short and long term goals post-MBA. Explain how: your professional experience has shaped these goals; why this career option appeals to you; and how you arrived at the decision that now is the time and the MBA is the appropriate degree. (500 words maximum)

What do you see yourself doing immediately upon graduation and what would you like to do ten years from now? Describe why this path attracts you. What experiences have convinced you to pursue it? Why do you need an MBA, especially one with UNC’s approach to business education, to proceed down your chosen path. For more tips on writing about post-MBA goals, please see MBA Goals 101.

3. What personal qualities or life experiences distinguish you from other applicants? How do these qualities or experiences equip you to contribute to UNC Kenan-Flagler? (500 words maximum)

Everyone has a story. What’s yours? What makes you tick? What would you like the admissions committee to know about you — you the human being, the individual? What hobbies and experiences will differentiate you from the IT guy, consultant, real estate developer, or banker that the adcom just read about? How will your perspective contribute to the classroom and community at Kenan-Flagler?

4. (Optional) If your standardized test scores are low, or if you have not had coursework in core business subjects (calculus, microeconomics, statistics, financial accounting), please tell us how you plan to prepare yourself for the quantitative rigor of the MBA curriculum. (300 words maximum)

This is pretty straightforward. Just answer it. You may also want to highlight professional preparation that you have already had in quantitative areas.

Essay Five (Optional)

Is there any other information you would like to share that is not presented elsewhere in the application? (300 words maximum)

My favorite: The optional essay. A gift allowing you to give the adcom one more reason to admit you.

5 Reasons to Consider an Online MBA Program

Global BusinessThis is a guest post by MBA@UNC.

Earning a Masters of Business Administration (MBA), allows professionals to increase their earning potential and launch their careers to new heights. This versatile degree is designed to advance careers in the areas of finance, business, logistics, management and more. While a full-time program can be completed in as little as a year, you may find you do not have the time or resources to complete an MBA in a traditional setting. Today, more people are turning to online MBA programs — and with good reason.

Greater Flexibility

Online programs offer you greater flexibility. Instead of adhering to a specific schedule, most online MBA programs allow you to choose when you complete your course work. This flexibility means you can tailor your school schedule around your busy life, instead of the other way around. You can also complete course work from any location with a computer and an Internet connection, allowing you to travel or relocate all while you continue working toward your degree.

Keep Working

One of the major challenges of earning an MBA is financing it. If you are working to support yourself (and your family), you can’t afford to stop working to finish your degree. An online MBA is a great way to work and go to school without compromising either. An online MBA program can be accessed from anywhere you have the Internet, which means you will not need to put your career on hold by leaving your current position.

Real-Time Learning

If you continue working while attending an online MBA program, you will experience the benefits of real-time learning application. This means you can easily apply what you learned in class one day to the work you perform at your job the next day. This is often not possible with traditional MBA programs because many students need to scale back their hours or quit working altogether to effectively earn their degree.

Global Networking

Online MBA programs attract business professionals from across the country and around the world. During the course of your instruction, you will have the chance to collaborate these classmates, making global connections that can help you grow your career. In addition to networking with people who are earning the same degree as you, you will establish connections with students in other career areas, which can be useful in advancing your own career in the future.

Schools with Great Reputations

In the past, employers often looked upon an online degree as questionable. They felt employees couldn’t possibly receive the same level of education without the structure of a brick-and-mortar school and a set schedule. Today, however, there are many credible schools — including top-ranked universities — that offer MBA programs online. Employers are also more accepting of these degrees. As long as you choose the school and program carefully, you can still experience all the benefits of earning a top-tier, traditional MBA.

An MBA does not have to be beyond your reach. With the advances in technology and increased offerings from reputable universities, online degrees are growing in popularity and acceptance. If you have been trying to determine how you will earn the MBA you need but were unsure how to fit school into your busy schedule, an online MBA can be the perfect solution.

The MBA@UNC is an innovative online MBA program offered by UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School that continues the school’s tradition of excellence embodied by each of our on-campus programs.







Military Benefits to Help Finance an MBA

Those who have served in the military have a range of options for financing their MBA education.

Active duty service members and veterans who are pursing academic opportunities can turn to benefits offered by the military. Many service members take advantage of benefits to finance their education, either while they are serving or shortly afterwards.

Active duty members can use their benefits to expand their opportunities for new assignments and promotions, and, in some cases, to gain access to an officer candidate program.

Veterans can use their benefits to secure higher-paying positions when transitioning to the civilian world. In 2011, the average starting salary of an MBA recipient was more than two times higher than the average starting salary of someone who only held a BA. A graduate degree like an MBA can help veterans and service members advance their careers by developing knowledge and leadership skills that will benefit both their civilian and military careers.

Those who have served in the military have a range of options for financing their MBA education. Education benefit programs include Chapter 33 Post 9/11, Chapter 30 Montgomery GI Bill and the GI Bill Kicker.

The Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill is typically for individuals with 90 days of consecutive active duty service on or after Sept. 11, 2001. Disabled veterans discharged from active duty after 30 days also are eligible. This benefit includes funds for tuition, as well as a housing allowance and a book stipend. Service members might find that the availability of funds is greater under this allowance.

The Chapter 30 Montgomery GI Bill provides an educational supplement on a monthly basis. The current maximum benefit for a full-time graduate student is $1,564 per month, while the current maximum monthly benefit for a part-time graduate student is $782. Most veterans who receive an honorable discharge from the service are eligible for the Montgomery GI Bill. Basic eligibility requirements for the Montgomery GI Bill can be found on Military.com. In the event that the service member is unable to collect on hir or educational benefits, a family member might be able to collect in their place. All Montgomery GI Bill eligibility expires 10 years after the service member leaves the military.

The GI Bill Kicker, sometimes called the Army, Navy or Marine Corps College Fund, is offered to most enlisted service members who sign up for the Montgomery GI Bill program. The GI Bill kicker usually is offered as a bonus for taking specific high-need jobs in the military, such as positions in Special Ops, Communications, Military Intelligence and the Signal Corp. When a service member selects the kicker, his or her monthly benefit can increase by $950 per month.

The maximum possible lifetime benefit with the Montgomery GI Bill and the GI Bill Kicker is more than $87,000. These benefits could reduce the need for high-cost loans and debt. Veterans can determine their eligibility by completing the Veterans Online Application (VONAPP) through the Department of Veterans Affairs. Typically the process takes six–eight weeks. Active duty and veteran service members should always consult their education center and the Department of Veterans Affairs, respectively, to identify their funding options.

Earning an MBA can double one’s earning capacity while developing crucial skills for military and post-military success. However, tuition expenses at top schools can seem overwhelming at first glance. Fortunately, most veterans have a range of options to finance their graduate business education. To learn more about the options available to MBA@UNC students, visit our Veterans Benefits page. With options like Chapter 33 Post 9/11, Chapter 30 Montgomery GI Bill and the GI Bill kicker, active duty service member or veteran seeking a high-quality education from a respected institution will face fewer financial limitations to achieving their goals.

UNC to Offer Joint MD/MBA

Kenan-Flagler Business School

McColl Building at Kenan-Flagler Business School

Students interested in a dual-degree have a new program to consider, with a recent collaboration between The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Medicine and Kenan-Flagler Business School. What differentiates Carolina’s program is that it “goes beyond offering health-care management courses by also integrating leadership, innovation and entrepreneurship into the curriculum.”

The program will also utilize experiential learning, working with UNC Health Care. Prospective students must apply to both the MBA and MD programs, and can either apply to both simultaneously, or once they’ve already started med school. The first three years will be spent in the MD program, with the fourth year taking core and elective MBA courses. In their fifth and final year, students will take electives in both programs.

Looking forward, there are more plans for collaborations between the two schools, which are “expected to provide MBA and MD students not enrolled in the dual-degree program with resources and instruction on the changing landscape of health care.”

UNC Kenan-Flagler Current MBA Student Interview

Current UNC Kenan-Flagler MBA Student

Jason McAlpin, UNC Kenan-Flagler MBA student and Consortium member

Accepted.com is continuing a blog series featuring interviews with current MBA students, offering readers a behind-the-scenes look at top MBA programs. We hope to offer you a candid picture of student life, and what you should consider as you prepare your MBA application.

Here’s a talk with Jason McAlpin, a UNC Kenan-Flagler student who offers insights into the admissions process, student life in Chapel Hill, and his experiences at Coca-Cola. Thank you Jason for sharing your thoughts with us!

Accepted: First, can you tell us a little about yourself – where are you from? What and where did you study as an undergraduate and when did you graduate?

Jason: I’m originally from Greensboro, NC but attended HS and college in Maryland. I attended high school in Silver Spring, Maryland and completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland in College Park in May of 2008. I graduated with a business degree in Marketing from the Robert H. Smith School of Business at UMD.

Accepted: Why did you decide to attend UNC Kenan-Flagler? What attracted you to the program and is it living up to your expectations?

Jason: I decided to attend KFBS for a number of different reasons, ranging from academic rigor to location to full-time placement statistics to financial aid package. However, the top three reasons for attending KFBS were 1) The Leader Initiative, 2) The welcoming student body and staff, and 3) The school’s proficiency and reputation in both marketing and entrepreneurship.

Accepted: What are some of your favorite things about living in Chapel Hill? Do you think it is a good setting for pursuing a business degree?

Jason: Probably the best thing about living in Chapel Hill is that it is the ultimate college town. With that comes a ton of friendly people and pride in the school and the town. I think Chapel Hill is an excellent setting for pursuing a business degree because you’re in the middle of the East Coast and get recruiters all along the East recruiting at the school. As well, if you’re interested in entrepreneurship, the Research Triangle Park is one of the best areas for aspiring entrepreneurs.

Accepted: What’s your favorite class so far?

Jason: My favorite class that I’ve taken to date is Intro to Entrepreneurship. Every class was a different case study on a new startup and the professor really did a great job of pushing his students to look past the obvious in an effort to truly assess the viability of new ventures and new ideas.

Accepted: Did you find the transition back to student life difficult after being out of school for a few years?

Jason: It wasn’t particularly difficult because I was used to working hard and long hours before school. In business school it’s just a different kind of working hard – it’s much more trying to master concepts and studying material versus racing against a clock to execute an initiative.

Accepted: I see you are concentrating in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. Are you planning on starting your own business once you receive your MBA? Or do you have another job lined up for next year? If so, what role did KFBS play in helping you secure that position?

Jason: I don’t plan on starting a new business immediately once I graduate from KFBS, but I do hope to have my own business someday. I have played around with an idea for a while but I have no immediate plans to pursue. Instead, I’ve been gearing up for an opportunity that I’m very excited about – an associate brand marketer position at The Coca-Cola Company.

Accepted: Can you tell us about your internship at Coca-Cola?

Jason: My internship at Coca-Cola was fantastic but a ton of hard work. The structure was set up around one major capstone project. For me, I was to work with two new projects under the one of the company’s brands. Additionally, the summer was split up into three different parts:

The first four weeks, I was to conduct a situation assessment of both categories that holds each new product to determine who the consumer was, why they buy, when they buy, trends in the market, major players, etc. In the fifth week I made a formal presentation to the brand floor and major stakeholders of my project.

The middle week was a chance to shift off of your capstone project and work on a completely different project with other brand interns from the Coca-Cola offices in Atlanta, NY and Texas.

Lastly, the last five weeks I spent creating a comprehensive integrated marketing communications plan surrounding the launch of one of the two new products.

In short, it was a great summer with amazing people and an amazing support system around you the entire summer.

Accepted: Do you have any advice for some of our applicants who will be applying to UNC Kenan-Flagler?

Jason: While there’s a ton of different pieces of advice that I would love to give each potential applicant, my main piece of advice would be to not underestimate the quality of the people and environment in your search criteria – this is one of Carolina’s biggest assets and has made for an unforgettable two years.

Accepted: I see that you are a member of the Consortium. Can you share some application tips for other students applying to business school through the Consortium?

Jason: My main advice here would be to think long and hard about the Consortium’s mission and to illustrate how you have supported this mission without knowing it in the past, how you continue to do so now, and how you plan on furthering this commitment in b-school and once you graduate.

Please visit our UNC Kenan-Flagler and Consortium Zone for more McCombs- and Consortium-specific advice.

The GMAT is Slipping and So are Applications

Good news for b-school applicants: There has been a decline in business school applications. While that might not mean that getting into MBA programs has gotten easier, it does mean that the median GMAT score has been lowered.

Poets and Quants (“GMAT Scores Slip At Many Top Schools”) did an analysis of the median GMAT score at the top 25 US business schools and discovered that median scores are slowly dropping. MIT Sloan, Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, Carnegie-Mellon’s Tepper School, North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, and the University of Southern California’s Marshall School all reported a 10-point drop in their median GMAT scores.

Poets and Quants analysis also reveals that a larger percentage of students were accepted to some b-schools this year than in 2010. USC’s Marshall School accepted 38% of applicants, in comparison with 22% last year, Georgetown’s McDonough School accepted 49% of its applicants, up from 42% last year, and Michigan’s Ross School accepted 32% of its applicants, up from 25% last year.

Implications for MBA applicants:

This is an excellent year to apply to business school.

While you still can’t slap together a mediocre application and expect to get accepted to a top-tier MBA program, if you know why you want an MBA and where you would like to get it, now is the time to apply. If you are competitive at your target schools, invest the time in your MBA essays, work with your recommenders, and submit for the round 2 deadlines.

You may also want to apply to an additional “reach” school or two. However, don’t get too cocky. This data does not imply that all your target programs should be “reaches” or that the GMAT no longer matters.

There is just a little less competition to enter the MBA class of 2014, especially for those not coming from super-competitive cohorts in the applicant pool.
