KSM_FT_AppOpenHero_Blog_660x376We are excited to announce that the 2015-16 application for Kellogg’s Full-Time MBA program is now available.

The Kellogg Admissions team strives to get to know you as a person and understand what you want to get out of your experience. The application process provides our team with many opportunities to find out more about you, wherever you are in the world.

One of the ways we get to know you is through your essay questions. This year, the application features two essay questions, which can be found below:

  • Leadership and teamwork are integral parts of the Kellogg experience. Describe a recent and meaningful time you were a leader. What challenges did you face, and what did you learn? (450 words)
  • Pursuing an MBA is a catalyst for personal and professional growth. How have you grown in the past? How do you intend to grow at Kellogg? (450 words)

Later this month, the blog will feature two posts by Beth Tidmarsh, director of admissions for Kellogg’s Full-Time programs, who will provide more background on what the Admissions team is looking for in your essay question responses.

In addition to the written essay questions, our application features video essays that provide applicants with an additional opportunity to demonstrate what they will bring to our vibrant Kellogg community. Each applicant will complete two short video essay questions. The questions are designed to bring to life the person we have learned about on “paper.”

Learn more about the essays and application process.

As you are thinking about your application, take a look at Tidmarsh’s two series’ on “Tips for Applying” and “How Kellogg applicants are assessed.”
