Personal Statement Guide

Because the personal statement essay is common to almost all MBA applications, we have prepared the mbaMission Personal Statement Guide to help candidates develop a personal statement that will “wow” the admissions committee and increase their chances of being admitted.

Although personal statement essays can vary in length and in the precise question asked, candidates usually must discuss their past accomplishments, explain why they want to earn an MBA at their target school and present their professional goals.

This guide includes the following:

  • Tips on how to craft your personal statement
  • Multiple excerpts from well-written personal statements
  • Four complete sample essays with notes
  • A worksheet to help you structure your own personal statement
