I joined Gavin Jocius of the Wisdom.MBA podcast. We talk about the business school admissions process and the trends seen in 2020 by admissions officers. We compare stories of studying in the US versus the UK and why Said Business School was a great fit for me. We also discuss how business schools have adapted during COVID, and Gavis shares his experience of being back on-campus at Duke this past September.

Discussion Topics:

(3:09) Sam’s decision to launch an MBA consulting business.

(5:57) Business application stats for 2020 and why schools are seeing increased applications.

(10:00) Advice for avoiding “achievement soup” in MBA application essays.

(15:00) Selecting the right business school.

(18:43) Oxford University’s Saïd Business School experience.

(29:35) The future of MBA program formats post-COVID.


I help determined applicants get admitted to top business schools. Get in touch if I can help you with your application. Book a chat here.
