MBA Admissions Tip: School-Hosted Blogs

Posted in Test Prep on July 13, 2011 by

Laptop manThis weekly MBA admissions tip comes from our friends at Clear Admit. For more expert b-school admissions advice, check out their blog.

As the summer progresses and applicants begin researching their target schools in more depth, we would like to highlight a valuable research tool: school-hosted blogs. The last few years have seen a significant increase in the number of MBA student blogs hosted by schools’ admissions offices, as well as in admissions offices’ use of blogs to keep applicants informed of deadlines, admissions policies and events. Both types of blogs are useful throughout the admissions cycle; the factual information in the admissions office blogs is helpful in understanding and planning for the application process, while the student blogs offer valuable insights into student life, culture and academics.

Below we’ve provided links to some of the active blogs hosted by the leading MBA programs.

To help our readers easily access these blogs, we offer feeds on the right-hand column of this page that display the most recent entries from school-hosted blogs. Whether you are an applicant looking to learn more about a target school or a news junkie who just can’t get enough of the MBA world, these feeds should help you keep on top of all the latest blogging from the schools.  Happy reading!
