mbaMission Resume Guide

At mbaMission, we strongly believe that you should tailor your resume to your audience—in this case, to the admissions committees—which requires taking the time to ensure that very specific characteristics and accomplishments shine through. Moreover, many candidates' resumes mistakenly convey responsibilities rather than accomplishments and waste valuable space on unnecessary information. The mbaMission Resume Guide explains how to approach, organize and present the data in your resume to best frame and highlight your accomplishments—and to stand out from the crowd.

The mbaMission Resume Guide delivers guidance on writing a strong admissions committee–focused and results-driven resume; explains how to approach spacing, formatting, special sections and descriptions of consulting work; and includes three sample resumes with notes, plus more than 300 action-oriented verbs that demonstrate accomplishments rather than responsibilities.
