In CollegeJournal’s "Internship Offers Are Too Early for M.B.A.s," Ron Alsop reports on robust recruiting for MBA interns and some of the problems inherent in this gold rush — namely that internship recruiters are on campus from the first day of class.
This article confirms from a different angle what I have been saying for a long time: MBA applicants need clear goals. They are as much an admissions requirement as a high GMAT. But they will also help you make the most of the professional opportunities inherent in MBA programs.
Starting the program with a well-defined vision and plan will help you as you choose classes and take advantage of the recruiter gold rush. Knowledge of your goals is a gem you want those recruiters to mine.
