Taking that step towards an MBA qualification is one of the most important that many professionals will take. the road to finally getting that qualification is not an easy one. there are several hurdles that have to be overcome. There is the necessity of a high GMAT score, an application and an essay that clearly differentiate the applicant and then the face-to-face interview which requires not only knowledge but people skills as well.
Those who make it through this grueling process should be congratulated. They have achieved their dream of placement in that prestigious business school. However, that is just the start of a long journey. In that business school, the successful applicant must now go toe-to-toe with equally gifted classmates – all in search of that ideal job placement.
