Pre-MBA Work Experience: Quantity vs. Quality

When evaluating your application, our MBA Admissions Committee aims for a complete picture of your qualifications and fit with the program. It’s all about perspective. We look  at your application as if we are holding a scale, balancing all the parts.

When considering the experience on your resume, on one side there’s a raw number of years (Quantity), and on the other is your job experience (Quality).

Quantity

Say that you are the CEO of a mid-size corporation. Wonderful!  Oh, it’s your first week on the job? That’s an amazing accomplishment, but perhaps you’d still admit that your knowledge and expertise in such a new position wouldn’t be as developed as someone who’s been doing it for a few years.

Or maybe you have been in the same job for 10 years.  Wow!  No doubt you are a go-to person when it comes to that role, but could it mean that perhaps you didn’t take as much initiative or demonstrate leadership qualities required to launch you to the next level? Or perhaps you have only had a project manager role for a year, but in that time you’ve produced measurable results, saved clients money, improved processes and efficiency, and demonstrated leadership.  In these cases, the quality of your work experience matters more.

Quality

A general job title like “Project Manager” may seem lackluster, but could actually be pretty exciting.  Don’t let us make assumptions. Take every opportunity on your application to illustrate just WHAT about your job made your experience rich and rewarding.

On the flip side, a Chief Operating Office title sounds impressive, but what kind of company did you work for and how extensive were your duties?  An impressive title with naught to back it up won’t move the needle in your favor when it comes to work experience.

The take-away on work experience:  Years, titles, and accomplishments are not, by themselves deciding factors – it’s a balancing act! To help you provide us with a clear picture, here are our top tips for highlighting the quality and quantity of your work experience on your resume:

Choosing the Right Test for Your MBA Application

From the Texas  MBA Admissions Team:

So, you’ve decided that you want to apply for an MBA. Congratulations on making a fantastic decision!  But, now what?

One of the first application components that prospective students typically focus on is that dreaded standardized test.  It can be an intimidating first step. Where do you even begin? If you’ve researched our program,  you already know that the Texas MBA Program accepts both GRE and GMAT…so how do you know which exam is right for you?

First things first: The Admissions Committee doesn’t care which test you take. Honestly! We do not have a preference of exam, and do not believe that one test is better at demonstrating your preparedness for business school than the other.

Now that that’s out of the way, it’s important to think about what exam is best for you. In some cases, there may be a reason to consider taking the GMAT over the GRE, or vice versa.

Applying Late Cycle to the Texas Executive, Dallas/Fort Worth, or Houston MBA Programs

As we’ve stated before, the best time to apply to the Texas MBA Program is when you’re ready and can put forth your best MBA application. If you find yourself ready to apply to our Texas Executive, Dallas/Fort Worth or Houston programs now, in late spring, but think you must wait until the next year’s application cycle, you may be happy to know that these programs currently have a Rolling Deadline and are still accepting applications for the fall 2017 start date. We encourage you to consider this option.

What does “Rolling Deadline” mean?

Applying to the Final Round of the Texas MBA Admissions Cycle

From Texas MBA Working Professional & Executive Program Admissions:

There’s an ice-breaker game often played at events called “Two Truths and a Lie,” where you make three statements about yourself, and others try to guess which statement is false.  We’ll modify that slightly here and call it “Two Truths and a Myth.”

See if you can spot the myth about applying to a Texas MBA Working Professional or Executive (WPE) Program:

  • The Texas MBA is seeking the most qualified candidates for its WPE programs in Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston and Austin.
  • We consider a candidate’s academic performance, work experience and overall motivation in reviewing an application.
  • Candidates must apply early in the process to have a chance at being considered.
