    The MBA has rapidly become the world’s most desired degree, with graduates of top business schools landing six-figure pay packages in private equity, high-tech, investment banking, and management consulting.

It will show you how to:
    - Select target schools and highlight the personal characteristics and skill sets they seek
    - Navigate the “GMAT or GRE?” question
    - Assess your own candidacy with the objective eye of an MBA admissions officer
    - Craft compelling essays and resumes that highlight your most salient attributes and make you stand out to the admissions committee
