Essay One

If we were to admit just one more candidate to the Postgraduate Programme (PGP) at the ISB, why should it be you? (500 words maximum)

Applicants must decide what evidence will best persuade the admissions committee of their worthiness. This is your opportunity to explain the "why" (what motivates and drives you) and the "how" (what creativity and interpersonal skills do you apply to make an impact).

Essay Two

Describe your short and long term career plans. How does the PGP fit in with those? (300 words maximum)

MBA programs ask this question to make sure that your goals are reasonable. Can their program prepare you for them and has your career so far positioned you to achieve them? If the answer to either of these questions is no, then they cannot accept you. You will be unhappy when you graduate.
