Be it the regular full time MBA program or an Executive MBA [EMBA] program, your essays are the most important part of your application. For EMBA programs that do not mandate interviews, your essays could be the primary basis for decision making for the adcom.

Unlike the Full Time MBA which is targeted towards professionals with an average work experience of 5 years, the executive MBA is designed for senior management professionals averaging more than 10 years of work experience. The program is relatively shorter.

In addition to understanding your profile, your goals, your reasons for choice of the school and your value addition, most EMBA applications focus on your reasons for choosing to pursue an EMBA program at this juncture of your career, on how you plan to cope with the academic demands and on your plans to lead a balanced professional, personal and academic life. Answering these questions or any others asked in the EMBA application credibly and convincingly could better your chances of getting enrolled.

With nearly a decade's experience in helping MBA aspirants, especially mature professionals create eMBA applications stronger in theme, content and presentation, EssayLABB could make the difference.

Length of Program: 22 Months

Location: Los Angeles

Admission Criteria: "UCLA Anderson's admissions criteria emphasizes academic ability, leadership, work experience, and breadth of life experiences. We evaluate applicants' prospects as future leaders and their ability to succeed in and benefit from the Executive MBA Program. We seek to create a class that will bring unique contributions from their diverse backgrounds and who will actively participate in the UCLA Anderson community."

Essays are the primary way for you to share your perspective and career plans. The best essays are introspective, genuine and succinct in directly answering the questions and responding to the topics.

You should try to distinguish yourself by showing what makes you different from others who share similar profiles. Make a strong case for your future plans. Even if your career plans change during business school, your application essays should lay out a clear trajectory for short-term and long-term goals. Do this by demonstrating how you expect to build on skills from your past, and those you expect to gain from the MBA. Content and clarity are key elements, as we seek superior communication skills. Style is a consideration too, although we understand that those who speak other languages may have different manners of expression in English. Length does not equal strength. A well-written short essay can have even more impact than a longer essay. Please try to respect the word limits indicated below.
