Harvard MBA Essay Guide

Answering an open-ended Harvard MBA Essay question can be tricky. The Admission team has recommended that you as an applicant should not overthink or overcraft the essay. It is easier said than done. Without any outline or strategy, the free-flowing essay might not capture all the traits of your personality that would demonstrate that you are a good fit for the program.

To make it easier for you to write the essay, F1GMAT has created the 2017-18 Harvard MBA Essay Guide.

Through the Essay Guide, we demonstrate:

1) How to highlight your extroversion and passion
2) Your capability as a decision maker
3) Your active learning skills
4) Your communication skills

Explicitly demonstrating your four traits would be ineffective. You should know how to use positioning in your essays. We have included:

1) Six Positioning examples
2) Two Sample Essays
3) A detailed analysis of Harvard MBA Curriculum
