Executive MBA Essays: How to Make an Impact [Sample Essay]

essays for executive mba

The following is an example of a successful Executive MBA essay for the MIT Sloan Executive MBA Program. Applicants to Executive MBA programs need to demonstrate significant leadership, impact, potential, and the legitimate need for the degree to be accepted, and this essay shows all of those qualities.

Statement of purpose (one page)

Prompt: The MIT Executive MBA Students and Community are: Open, Collaborative and Inventive. Please tell us why you are pursuing the MIT Executive MBA, and what you will contribute to your classmates and the community at MIT. Include examples of success working with organizations, groups, and individuals. For those reapplying, please highlight developments since your last submission.

As a founder, board director, and executive officer of a growth-stage technology company, I bring a unique set of experiences and a need for an innovative, transformative education that I can apply to my business immediately.

As an executive with both immediate challenges and wide organizational influence, I am particularly drawn to the action learning philosophy of the Sloan program. I am eager to transform my own mind and create immediate positive impact across my organization. I am inspired by the experiences of current students who implement their new learnings when they return to the office on Mondays. I am eager to do exactly that. My business is significantly more complex today than it was in the beginning when we provided a simple set of tools to small teams. Today, we are a multinational organization that provides tools and training to large enterprises seeking to implement Lean transformations of sophisticated processes in IT operations and multiple other industries. Throughout this journey, I have constantly challenged myself and my organization to learn, grow, and change. I seek to participate in this program as another step in my personal commitment to learning and adapting to the needs of the future. Now is the moment of maximum impact, whereby my organization and customers will be most receptive to, and benefit the most from, lessons and experiments that I intend to bring back and implement.

As a shareholder that has negotiated a significant amount of angel and institutional investment, I am keenly aware that my investors seek a positive return on their investment. I seek to prepare not only for the immediate needs of growth and complexity, but also for the mid-to-long term opportunities that may accompany that growth, such as a change of control, a liquidity event, or an opportunity to integrate my teams into a larger vision.

As a community leader, I seek to bring what I learn from the program back home and share it widely. I aim to broaden my understanding of business practices and theory beyond my focused experience in tech so that I may maximize the value of what I pass along to the aspiring entrepreneurs, technologists, and leaders in my community who, with ever increasing frequency, honor me by seeking my guidance and assistance.

Similarly, I have a strong desire to share my experiences and the details of my company and my journey with my classmates. I understand how valuable it is to be completely transparent with a group of peers who are eager to learn and share. I am excited to share my successes and my failures with them, open my business to their scrutiny, and make my organization available any time it aids in the learning experience.

Jennifer Weld, former Assistant Director of Admissions at Cornell’s EMBA program and  Accepted admissions consultant , provides insights into what this Accepted client did correctly when writing his Executive MBA essay.

A couple of strong points to this essay:

1. No nonsense approach

The writer immediately gets to the point of explaining why an EMBA is a necessary next step for their career. In the very first sentence there is an acknowledgement of all the writer has accomplished, but the clear recognition that further education is necessary to attain their goals.

2. Complete lack of verbosity

It is obvious the writer has had a very successful career thus far, but that is not what comes across. Instead you understand that the writer recognizes the constant need for learning and adapting to the ever-changing business environment.

3. Give and take

The writer discusses taking the learning from MIT and applying it to oneself, but also bringing key learnings back to the writer’s community. The writer also acknowledges that having classmates critiquing his business will be extremely beneficial to him, but also by opening up his operations to his classmates, they can learn a lot as well. This shows a generous spirit, which is the type of characteristic an admissions committee would be looking for in terms of representing the school after graduation.

An Expert’s Guide to Executive MBA Essays

by Eden | Mar 4, 2020 | Executive MBA Admissions

executive mba essays

Our “Expert’s Guide to Executive MBA Essays” may be a pretentious–and perhaps hyperbolic–title, but we hope to offer you our extensive expertise in Executive MBA essays in one all-encompassing article. Before creating Prep Executive, a tutor-led test prep company, we worked with many MBA and Executive MBA applicants over the years. Our experience has taught us that writing EMBA application essays is a big headache for EMBA aspirants.

If that’s you…then this guide is for you.

Unfortunately, the realm of Executive MBA application essay writing is so extensive that it is difficult to put everything into one guide. Therefore, our goals are to orient you to the essays, give you 12 tips to writing essays that will get you in, and describe the writing process that we follow with students as part of the Prep Executive Complete Plan .

Executive MBA Essay Basics

Get Expert Help

Let’s get started!

Typically, EMBA programs require between 2 and 5 essays as part of your application. Some “essays” may be extremely short, like this essay from Columbia :

Short-Answer Question: What is your immediate post-MBA professional goal? (50 characters maximum)

Examples of possible responses:  “Work in business development for a media company.”  “Join a strategy consulting firm.” “Launch a data-management start-up.”

Essay Question 1

Required; 750 word limit

What are your career objectives and how will the Wharton MBA Program for Executives contribute to your attainment of this objective?

Application essays are changed periodically, so your colleagues may have written different essays for the same program.

5 Types of Executive MBA Essays and How to Approach Them

types of executive mba essays

In general, Executive MBA essays can be grouped into 5 categories. Here are our notes on how to attack each type.

Future goals Previous history Weakness Promise Wild Card

Future Goals Essay

This essay is an Executive MBA standard. There may be one or more questions asking about your short term (immediately after the EMBA), mid-term (3 to 5 years after graduation), and long term (10+ years) goals. Usually, this essay question includes how you expect the program to help you reach these goals.

When writing your future goals essay, keep one word in mind: clarity.

At this point in your career, you should have an extremely clear understanding of the next levels in your organization or profession. Your essay should reflect this clarity and make clear connections between the program and your goals.

We recommend a classic 5 paragraph structure for your future goals essay. Content of the body paragraphs will vary by question, but we have given you some ideas to start.

1. Introduction

3-4 sentences with one sentence that is a specific response to the prompt (the one goal). Preview short, mid, and long term goals or indicate that the program will refine you intellectually, practically, and socially.

2. Body paragraph

Short term goals and how the program will help OR how the program will improve your intellectual understanding of specific topics (focus on courses and electives).

3. Body paragraph

Mid-term goals and how the program will help OR how the program will provide practical learning opportunities (focus on project-based learning and other program elements).

4. Body paragraph

Long term goals and how the program will help OR how the program will improve your network or social skills.

5. Conclusion

2-3 sentences summarizing and making a final pithy statement regarding your fit for the program.

Previous History Essay

Another common EMBA essay question is about your previous history. Think 3 greatest achievements, 3 most significant influences, or 3 events that impacted your life.

The previous history is not about regurgitating your resume’. You must pick 3–and only 3–significant things. Since there is so much ground to cover in your essay, we recommend a classic 5 paragraph structure.

2-3 sentences starting with philosophical reflection or a quote. One sentence must preview the 3 significant things as a direct response to the question.

Professional thing. Tell a short story if you like but be sure to offer at 3 reasons why this thing makes the list of significance.

Personal thing. You can talk about your family, children, or something of personal importance.

Wild card. Discuss a unique something that showcases your personality. Some of our previous students have climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, started a small nonprofit organization, or bought a business.

Another pithy wrap-up.

Weakness Essay

These essays will ask about a time when you failed or received criticism. Alternatively, you may be asked to write about 1 or 3 weaknesses.

No matter how the question asks about the weakness or failure, it needs to be epic and authentic. Everyone can see through the strengths disguised as weaknesses, so you need to tell a story in which you really “screwed the pooch.”

Our favorite format for this essay is as a 3 paragraph story:

1. Paragraph 1

Start with a quote from the person you hurt, offended, or disappointed. Segue into a short background for the reader of what happened.

2. Paragraph 2

Elaborate on the ripple effects of the failure or weakness. Think professionally, socially, etc.

3. Paragraph 3

Discuss how you addressed the failure and improved or moved on from it. This paragraph must be about proactive remedies so that the essay ends on a positive note.

The uglier the story the better. Some of our previous students wrote about getting into a screaming match with a manager, losing thousands of dollars in a poorly researched business deal, and almost ruining 2 subordinates’ careers. Epic…

Promise Essay

The promise essay is a new essay type that has shown up in recent years. The basic idea is that the EMBA program wants you to think about an important commitment you will have in the near future and plan (or promise) what you will do.

Two common themes are how you will balance the demands of the program with your existing commitment and what you will contribute to the program. Questions regarding the program may include during class discussions, to your classmates, or as alum (the program needs alumni who will show up).

Promise essays can be difficult to write because you do not want to commit yourself to something you do not intend to do. Our advice is to focus on concrete, doable promises. Here are some examples:

How you will contribute:

How you will balance the program with current commitments:

If possible, provide examples of how you have completed a similar action in the past. For example, if you say you would be willing to speak with applicants who are women entrepreneurs, talk about how you already attend a women’s business meetup and have contributed to that organization. As much as possible, try to back up the promises with concrete examples.

Structurally, the promises essay can be classic 4 or 5 paragraphs.

Wild Card Essay

We call this essay type the wild card because it’s an off the wall question designed to learn more about you as a person. We recommend showcasing your true personality and using the wild card essay as an opportunity to differentiate yourself from other candidates.

Here are some wild card essay examples:

From New York University Stern:

NYU Stern is committed to helping students develop a deeper set of professional skills, and a broader perspective of the role of business in the world. (approximately 500 words, double-spaced)

a) What is a significant contemporary issue on which you, as a business leader, would like to have an impact?

b) Why is it important to you?

c) How could you leverage your skills and resources to address the issue?

Previously from London Business School:

If you could choose any three people who have ever lived to join you for dinner, who would you invite and why?

If you were on the cover of any publication in 10 years, what would be the headline and the content of the article be?

12 Tips for Writing Killer Executive MBA Essays

executive mba essay editing

Now that we’ve have explained the 5 main types of Executive MBA essays and how to attack them, here are our 12 tips for writing essays that will get you in.

Outline the essay first. 

Use one of the general structures I have given you as a starting point. As a person that has read many, many essays, I can tell you that there is an OBVIOUS difference between an essay that was outlined first and an essay that was written almost as a stream of consciousness.

Be sure to answer the question.

After you have outlined the essay, ensure that your main points provide a list or reasons answering the question. When writing the introduction, make sure there is one sentence that is a direct answer to the question. After you have written the first draft of the essay, check again that you have answered the question.

Stay away from controversial topics.

Even if you think Donald Trump would make a fabulous dinner guest for your wildcard essay, do not list him. He is too polarizing of a public figure to risk your EMBA essays on.

Show don’t tell.

Within your body paragraphs, you need to substantiate your reasons or list with details AND examples. Use short stories from your past to illustrate and liven up your body paragraphs.

Be personable not personal.

Reveal some but not all of who you are. Your essays should reveal your perspective, humanity, and experience, but not tell your secrets and be too intimate. 

Abusive parents? Gave a child up for adoption? Wish you had studied something totally different in undergrad? These topics may be slightly too personal for your EMBA essays.

If there’s a weakness/failure question, talk about a really epic failure, not a fake one.

We can’t stress this enough! Be authentic (but not personal or controversial).

Don’t talk too much about your family or ethnic/cultural background.

While these are important components of who you are, they should be mentioned in only one essay and, preferably, not the same essay. Too much discussion of family or culture makes you seem obsessed or overly concerned with them. Remember that you’re applying to a professional program.

Follow the maximum word count.

If the requirement is 700 words, get as close as you can to 700 without going over. Traditional advice is that you can go 10 percent over the maximum word count, but we think smart editing demonstrates your humility and ability to adhere to the program’s rules.

Don’t forget about grammar, spelling, punctuation, and capitalization.

Use Grammarly or ask your favorite grammarian to review the essay.

Only have someone you think is really smart review your essay.

Since the final audience is a group of smart professionals, find another one to take a preliminary look at what you consider the final draft.

Think of the essays as 3 stories in the same book. They should flow and not be redundant.

If you find yourself mentioning the same stories or points in different essays, you have to broaden your thinking.

executive mba essay experts

Executive MBA essay writing can be complicated and full of uncertainty, especially if you don’t think you are a good writer. That’s why we included essay help in our Prep Executive Complete Plan . Here’s the process we follow during essay help. You should follow the same process if you are working on your own.

1. Create a detailed outline of each essay.

We call you on Skype and ask you questions about each essay. We take notes then send them to you with a recommended writing structure.

2. Write the first draft.

You write the first draft from our notes. Since we have captured your phrases and ideas, you will have no problem turning the notes into sentences.

3. Revise the first draft.

We take that first draft and review it for the big ideas. Did you stay on topic? Are your examples robust? Is the structure reader-friendly? We provide comments in track changes and send the essays back to you.

4. Revise the second draft.

You make changes based on our comments and send the essays back to us. For the second draft, we look the structure within each paragraph and go through each sentence word by word. If your essay is over the word count, we cut, cut, cut. If revisions are needed, we provide comments in track changes and send the essays back.

5. Revise the third draft.

As part of the revision for the last draft, we look at grammar, spelling, punctuation, capitalization, and diction. We will let you know if anything else needs to be changed.

If you and your editor are both happy with the essays, you’re done!

2 MBA Admissions Essays That Worked

These outstanding MBA personal statements resulted in admissions offers.

2 MBA Essays That Worked

essays for executive mba

MBA admissions officials say they prefer personal statements that convey personality and demonstrate grit. (Getty Images)

There is no secret formula to writing a compelling personal statement for an MBA application, university admissions officials say.

The key, they say, is to write a statement that feels authentic and makes your case.

Bruce DelMonico, assistant dean for admissions at the Yale University School of Management , is wary of personal statements that tell dramatic stories and stretch the truth. He says he is not looking for students to have exotic experiences, but for evidence of resilience, introspection and initiative.

Yale's business school recruits students identified as unselfish leaders – those who strive to improve the circumstances of others and help themselves rather than those who exploit others for personal gain, DelMonico says.

"We are looking to bring in students who will be inclusive leaders and who will bring people together," DelMonico says.

William Rieth, former senior director with the Fox School of Business at Temple University , says applicants sometimes struggle to write a memorable personal statement, but being memorable is vital.

"Students need to remember their audience," he says. "Schools are reading thousands of essays."

He says a solid personal statement requires a "compelling story" and an honest writing voice. "It should reflect your personality and sound like you."

How to Write an MBA Application Essay: A Few Tips

MBA admissions experts say a business school application essay should offer a convincing argument about why a candidate belongs in an MBA program at that particular school.

Wayne Hutchison, managing director for the MBA program at Michigan State University’s Eli Broad College of Business , urges prospective MBA students to explain their reasons for applying to B-school and to describe whatever incidents spurred their interest in graduate business education.

"In addition, applicants should discuss the skills and abilities they have that will translate to academic and professional success," Hutchison wrote in an email, noting that failing to include this information can lead admissions officers to question an MBA hopeful's competitiveness.

Aaron Burch, who earned his MBA degree from the University of Texas—Austin's McCombs School of Business , says MBA essays should address the following questions:

Burch, owner of – a website that provides information about shipping container houses – suggests that MBA students convey that they are at a point in their careers where they can "pivot without being pigeonholed" while having meaningful accomplishments, including "real responsibility."

It's also essential for MBA candidates to showcase what they have to offer a B-school, Burch wrote in an email. "You want to demonstrate that you're not just a taker and you want to add to the prestige and reputation of the school, add to the experience your future classmates will have, etc."

MBA alumni say it's crucial for prospective MBA students to describe how they intend to use an MBA .

"Admissions officers will want to understand your vision behind why an MBA might help you, so it's incumbent upon you to articulate the plan you have for yourself, and how their institution is going to help your journey," MBA degree recipient Taylor Constantine – the partner channel lead with Rain, a financial services company – wrote in an email.

Margo Bell, senior assistant director of admissions with Pepperdine University's Graziadio Business School in California, notes that MBA essays are influential factors in the MBA admissions process. Application essays help B-school admissions committees gauge the compatibility of a prospective student with the culture and values of the institution.

"As applicants begin to write their MBA applicant essays, it’s important for prospective students to share who they are as an individual," Bell wrote in an email. "The essay allows MBA admission officers to get a better understanding of who you are, what you wish to accomplish and why you deserve to be accepted."

Michal Strahilevitz, associate professor of marketing with St. Mary's College of California , advises MBA applicants to view the application essay as an opportunity to provide context for deficits in their admissions profile. "For example, if your undergraduate grades were not great because you worked full time to pay for school, write about it," Strahilevitz explained in an email.

What to Keep in Mind About MBA Essay Prompts

MBA admissions consultants note that business schools often have distinctive essay prompts, so it's important for applicants to tailor their essay to every school where they apply.

"Each school asks a specific question in the essay, and one of the most important things you can do as an applicant is to answer that question – not the question you wished we asked or the one you want to answer," DelMonico wrote in an email. "The various elements of the application fit together, and we’re looking to get very specific pieces of information from the essay. So please follow the essay instructions you’re given and don’t feel as though you need to or should make the essay broader in scope."

Barbara Coward, founder of the MBA 360° Admissions Consulting firm based in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, notes that the first step in the essay writing process should be meticulously reading the question prompt. Think about the question for a few days while going about routine tasks so that ideas can "marinate."

Coward says that once prospective students have decided what they'd like to write about, they should let the words flow without filtering them because too much self-editing at the beginning of the creative process can interfere with productivity. Revisions and tweaks can come after an applicant has fully expressed his or her ideas.

Admissions experts note that MBA hopefuls who are struggling to figure out how to describe themselves may want to ask friends and family for advice. Prospective MBA students can also gain self-awareness by keeping a diary or creating a storyboard of their life.

Mistakes to Avoid in MBA Admission Essays

Taking too long to express the main idea or central thesis of an essay is a no-no, Coward says. Applicants should directly respond to a question and ensure that their essay is easily understood by an admissions officer. "Keep in mind that somebody is not reading a novel," she says. "They're going to be glancing through."

Excessively verbose essays don't make a good impression, Coward adds. Applicants should respect word limits and be concise, because doing otherwise creates extra work for admissions officers under time pressure, she explains.

Two other errors to avoid in MBA essays, Coward says, are being monotonous or melodramatic . It's important to have an introductory sentence that strikes the right tone, she adds. "You're not trying to create drama, but you don't want to put the person to sleep either," Coward says.

Examples of Outstanding MBA Essays

Here are two MBA essays that made the cut. The first is from the Fox School of Business and the second is from Yale. These essays are annotated with comments that explain why the essays charmed admissions committees.

How to Write an Admissions Essay for an Executive MBA Program

essays for executive mba

Written by Pamela Foster Brady

Each individual has a story to tell, yet when it comes to the admissions essay, many essays fall short because the applicant fails to effectively convey their story.

The power of your personal story

As the director for a public university executive MBA program, I have the honor of meeting many mid-level professionals looking to boost their career through an executive MBA program .  Each individual has a story to tell, yet when it comes to the admissions essay, many essays fall short because the applicant fails to effectively convey their story.

Think about the essay structure

Each essay has a beginning, a middle and an end (just like we learned in secondary school.)  The beginning of the essay should capture the reader’s attention and compel them to want to read the rest of the essay.  It should also be an introduction to who you are.  Many essays are sent with no name and no introduction; they simply start with a statement as to why they wish to pursue their MBA.

The middle should describe your career progression.  Tell your story.  What disruptions have occurred in your career – were they good or bad?  Why?  Who is/was your mentor – how did they help you?  What events shaped who you are today?  What would be the next step in your career and how can an MBA help you?

The end should state why you wish to pursue the university you are applying to and what you bring to the cohort.  And like a good story, it should leave the reader satisfied and wanting to meet you in person at your interview.

Personal Statement On Executive MBA in Business

Type of paper: Personal Statement

Topic: Business , Time , Study , World , Skills , Students , Education , Management

Published: 03/10/2021


As someone both adept at management and leadership in business environments, I have a number of goals that will help me achieve the excellence that I desire in my career. Within five years, I have several goals in particular to meet: I wish to gain my EMBA in Business in order to assert myself as a much more viable and qualified business professional at my current employer, the Distributor of Honda in Kuwait. I currently manage 5 centers and a 32 member sales team; I wish to expand that influence into a greater set of regional responsibilities, as well as expand by business by at least 40% in the next 5 years. In the long term, my main goal is to become a major executive at one of the major car distributors in Dubai, Doha or Kuwait, whether it be with Honda, or another large, worldwide corporation. I wish to become an authority on the worldwide automotive industry, with the responsibilities and challenges inherent to that position. I am very passionate about my work selling cars and maintaining the efficacy and continued survival of Honda at this stage and would like to expand my ability to do so as far as I possibly can.

In order to achieve these long term goals, I will need a significant upgrade to my skill set. I have managed companies for 14 years; my experience is vast. However, as times change, so does the way business is conducted; the increasing influence of the internet and social media, as well as rising globalization has made it necessary for managers, like myself, to step outside their purview and know what is going on with their industry half way around the globe. Whether I am in Dubai, Doha or Kuwait, I may still need to know how the auto industry on a global scale is faring as it has direct and dramatic consequences on my own business. To that end, I will need to learn how to update and modernize my management and leadership skills, mostly in regards to how best to communicate over great distances and maintain contact with my personnel. Business strategies have also changed greatly, and I wish to keep up with the rapidly changing and interconnected auto industry. Finding was to better introduce and incorporate hybrid cars into our fleet would be a laudable goal, given their increasing importance in the global marketplace; learning how best to market those new vehicles and manage operations toward facilitating that goal is another part of my skill set that needs to be updated.

I wholeheartedly believe that I can learn all these skills and more at the Hult International Business School. The school has always been highly ranked by The Economist and The Financial Times; its ranking as the top school for percentage increase in salary increase and diversity of recruiters is of particular interest to me, as I am always looking for an increase in personal income. In addition, being ranked first in international experience very much appealed to my need to further globalize my business acumen and become familiar with the increasingly small world of business. The school’s high profile can help me network and make connections with a wide variety of similarly-minded professional, which can lead to the expansion of my customer base and open me up to new strategies and ways of thinking. The highly-accredited and qualified instructors and speakers there already contain the knowledge and forward-thinking initiative that I passionately seek to bring into my own workplace. The campus’ ideal location in the city of Dubai, the business hub of the Middle East, is yet another motivator for my determination to pursue my EMBA at Hult International Business School. This city is where I grew up and my parents currently (and conveniently) reside; also, this location offers the much-desired opportunity to study in London. In fact, all of these factors contribute to my great desire to work hard and earn my EMBA at one of the best international business schools in the world.

While I plan to study hard in the EMBA program, my 14 years in high-stress business management and development activities have taught me the importance of balancing my work and personal lives; adding my studies to that end will be little problem. Having so many responsibilities and duties over the years, I have learned a great deal about time management – something I will be very much focused on as I add this new experience to my life. I have a very supporting and loving wife; she very much understands my need to excel (as well as the potential increased income it provides for our family) and we are both sure to make time for each other within the confines of our respective busy schedules. I also have a boy, who is a year and a half already, and is a constant source of pride. In a couple of months, we are expecting our second child (a girl), which brings a new set of challenges and joys I eagerly await. They are true inspirations to me, and they keep me working hard to provide for them and to make them proud. I plan on incorporating studying into both my work and personal time equally; my family and my work colleagues all know of my intentions to earn my EMBA, and we are willing to set aside the time needed to place the appropriate focus on my studies. I am very thankful for the support that people on both sides of my work/home have for me, and they will be immensely helpful in keeping me in a productive mindset, both in school and at work.

Crafting Your Admissions Essay

Even seasoned professionals can be intimidated with a blank page, especially when trying to write an admissions essay for a top executive mba program..

Booth alum, Rick Weiland, offers you seven helpful hints on how to write your Booth application essay.

Rick Weiland started the Executive MBA Program in 1978, about a week after he got married. Fortunately, his wife Karen was in the middle of nursing studies, so they spent their nights cozying up to his Micro Economics text and her Gross Anatomy book. Rick also holds a BS from The University of Michigan (Math & Communication Science) and an MS from UChicago (Information Sciences). He spent his career in a variety of technical, managerial, and executive roles mostly at a software consultancy that transformed into a starter of new technology businesses, including two that ended up traded on the NYSE. Now retired for 10+ years, Rick volunteers at Chicago Booth and the Art Institute of Chicago, attends guitar classes at the Old Town School, and travels for fun both domestically and abroad. He and Karen have three grown sons and make their home in Evanston. 


Even successful mid-career professionals can be daunted by the sight of a blank page on which they have to write an essay to help get them admitted to the Chicago Booth Executive MBA program. The purpose of this blog posting is to give you helpful hints and strategies and some friendly encouragement for getting those essays (a) started, and (b) finished.

In this post, we’ll mainly be talking about the required essay :  “Why are you seeking an MBA from Chicago Booth and what do you hope to contribute to the program?” We’ll talk about the Optional Essay briefly at the end.  


Helpful Hint #1:   Relax. 

The reason you’re writing the essay, as with most aspects of the admissions process, is to help you and Chicago Booth determine if you are a good fit for one another. There’s nothing sneaky or mysterious about it. So take it seriously, but don’t let it paralyze you!

Helpful Hint #2:   Remember to answer the whole question!

In my experience, a lot of draft essays devote almost all of their time and space to answering the first part of the question (Why are you seeking the Executive MBA from Booth) and give little or no attention to the second part (What will you contribute). Don’t forget to explain why other students will find it interesting and useful to have you as a classmate. 

Helpful Hint #3:   Minimize the applesauce.

There is no need for you to devote space to heaping praise on Booth and telling the Admissions Team how wonderful Booth is; they already know. There’s no need to sell them on this, and you don’t want to sound like you’re piling on flattery. On the other hand, it is a good idea to spend a few sentences discussing why you and Booth are a good fit to one another.  

Helpful Hint #4:  Keep it simple!

Short punchy sentences made up of short punchy words will always be better than long, learned sentences filled with lots of adjectives. Disable the semicolon key on your keyboard. 

Compare “Keep it simple” to “Invariably maximize the simplicity of your written utterances, thereby effectuating successful communications.” See what I mean?

Helpful Hint #5:   Start from an outline.

Writing an outline helps you organize your sequence of thoughts.  It helps you make sure that all the things you want it to say get included, and the things you don’t need to say stay out. An outline makes the blank page a lot less scary. Key information for your outline could include:

A summary of your experiences, as well as your medium and long-term objectives

How the Booth Executive MBA Program will help you achieve your goals

An overview of what you bring to the program

Helpful Hint #6:  Refine your essay, and don’t be shy about getting some assistance.

Once you’ve written your essay, put it away for a day or two. Then come back and try reading it like it was written by someone else and see how it strikes you. Fix what you don’t like. Read it out loud and see how it sounds. (This is a great catcher of overly complicated or unclear sentences.) Have someone else read and critique your essay. Make sure this person will be frank and up front with you. Have them read it out loud to you. 

If English is not your first language, find a native speaker to review and, if necessary, help you smooth the English. 

Helpful Hint #7:   It’s a challenge, but don’t leave your essay to the last minute. Try to get it done early in the process. Besides helping you avoid last minute panic, having the essay done early gives you another chance to read and reconsider it before you submit. 


The optional essay is an opportunity for you to tell the Admissions Committee things you think are important, but that didn’t fit anywhere else in the admissions process. Most particularly, if there are soft spots in your background, this is the place to address them. If your previous academic record is spotty, or if there are holes in your employment history, this essay provides the opportunity to provide an explanation, including what you’ve learned from difficult situations and how you’ve moved forward from them.  On a more positive note, this essay is also a good place to talk about special interests or accomplishments whose description didn’t fit in elsewhere.   

If, on consideration, you don’t see the need to write the optional essay, no worries—it’s optional!

Five Top Tips for Writing Your EMBA Application Essay


Applying for an Executive MBA is a challenging and rigorous process. Aside from transcripts, tests and letters of recommendation, a key element of the EMBA application process is the essay, which gives you an opportunity to introduce yourself, speak about your accomplishments and explain to recruiters why your skills and experience make you a great candidate for a specific program.

Because EMBA programs are designed for seasoned professionals who want to boost their skills without taking time off work, admissions teams will be looking for top-notch leadership abilities and an eagerness to form a new executive network.

Here are TopMBA ’s top five tips on how to write a strong essay and maximize your chances of getting into your preferred EMBA program.

Get straight to the point

When writing an admissions essay, it can be difficult to know exactly what to write and when to write it. However, it’s important to know that recruiters want to understand your determination and dedication for starting executive education – so it’s better to get straight to the point. You can start the essay by explaining why you want to do an EMBA and how this type of program will help you achieve your goals.

Talk about the school

There are many great Executive MBAs out there and it can be difficult to narrow down your search, especially as they all have their own pros and cons. Nevertheless, being able to explain to b-school recruiters why you want to do a specific EMBA is key to making a good impression. Research the different programs thoroughly and acknowledge how the schools’ curricula, cohort profiles and reputation will boost your future executive career. You may also want to mention how you could represent the schools you’re interested in after graduation and why you’re eager to be a part of their alumni network.

Be specific

Another way to stand out to recruiters is by letting your experience speak for itself. Some schools will ask for some examples of managerial conflicts you had to resolve or any accomplishments you’ve achieved throughout your career. The best way to answer these types of questions is by getting specific. What type of conflict or issue did you resolve? How exactly did you go about it, and how was your approach unique? Do your managerial skills reflect your potential to become an executive? Once you’ve gotten these key elements down on paper, your essay will really show your flair for leadership.

Honesty is always the best policy. In fact, being honest is just as important as being specific or defined when it comes to an EMBA essay. There are plenty of resources online to help you complete this task to the best of your abilities, but be mindful of external influences that might make you rethink your application. Avoid writing what you think recruiters want to read from you, and instead, focus on the most authentic aspects of your career and personal life that convey why you’re a strong executive candidate. The best admissions essays strike a great balance between honest anecdotes and skill-demonstrating stories from your professional experience.

Check your grammar and style

Grammar, sentence construction and the writing style you use can say a lot about your personality and attention to detail – an essential skill to have in an executive career in business. If writing isn’t your forte, ensure that you leave yourself plenty of time to plan, write, and most importantly, edit the essay. A mistake on such an important part of your application might not sit well with recruiters.

If you’re still undecided…

If you need help choosing an EMBA, take a look at the QS EMBA Rankings 2020 , which reveal the top programs around the world and in specific regions.
