Praise for the Clear Admit Guides and the MBA Planner App

One of our newest contributors to Fridays From the Frontline, texaswannabecali recently shared her thoughts about the Clear Admit Fuqua School Guide, which she refers to as a “one stop shop.”  Here are some highlights from her blog:

“It lays a really good foundation of organized info on which you can build upon by allowing you to spend more time researching the details that are most relevant to you…I actually learned a lot about Fuqua that I hadn’t even thought to research or look into.”

texaswannabecali wraps up her review by saying, “I would highly suggest getting a copy,” and goes on to give her readers some insight into Clear Admit’s MBA Planner App:

“I especially find this useful for the essays such as Duke’s ’25 Random Things.’ I tend to forget the so-called interesting things I’ve experienced in my 24 years of life when put on the spot to actually list them, so I like the fact that when I randomly think of something, I can just whip out my phone and make a note.”

With Round 1 deadlines just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to do school research and get organized!  All 27 Clear Admit School Guides are available for immediate download in the Clear Admit Shop and you can find the MBA Planner App in the iTunes App Store.

Stanford Social InnovationThis week in Trivia Tuesday, in which we highlight the distinguishing aspects of top business schools, we’re opening up our Stanford School Guide for a closer look at their Public Management and Social Innovation Program.

“The Public Management Program (PMP) was founded in 1960s by then-dean Arjay Miller to promote communication and collaboration between leaders of government and business. His experience as president of Ford Motor Companies provided the impetus for this initiative; in this role, he witnessed firsthand the misunderstandings between politicians and those in the private sector. The PMP became part of the Center for Social Innovation in 2000, and today the Center has the broader mission of preparing students to address social and environmental problems. Continue reading…

Trivia Tuesday: Chicago Booth’s International MBA

Trivia Tuesday: Chicago Booth’s International MBA

internationalWelcome once again to Trivia Tuesday, our weekly examination of the offerings that help distinguish the top business schools from each other.  Today we’re focusing on Chicago Booth’s International MBA, as featured in the Clear Admit Guide to Booth.

“Chicago Booth is one of the only leading MBA programs that gives students the opportunity to pursue a specialized International MBA (IMBA) degree.  To receive the IMBA, full-time students must spend one academic term abroad, complete five courses related to international business and demonstrate proficiency in a non-native language before graduation.  Chicago requires interested students to declare their intent to pursue the IMBA in Autumn Quarter of their first year, significantly earlier than most of their peers.

“The IMBA shares the same core requirements as the traditional Chicago Booth MBA, which means that students first receive a solid foundation in general business principles before focusing on international topics.  In addition to completing the 10-course core curriculum, IMBA candidates must take at least five more courses in international business, at least three of which must be offered by Chicago Booth.  Because this course sequence is meant to provide them with a deep understanding of the global economy, IMBA students are not permitted to concentrate in international business, as the designation would be redundant.
