Must-Read MBA Blogs, Part 2

Posted in Test Prep on July 26, 2011 by

A few months ago, we shared some of our favorite MBA blogs. Ready for another sneak-peek in the lives of MBA students and applicants? Check out these must-read weblogs from current and future MBAs.

1) Ellipsing My Way… to Business School

Richard Battle-Baxter started his blog last year to write about his GMAT prep and b-school application journey. He’s now about to start business school at Cornell’s Johnson School of Management — and he’s still chronicling his journey!

2) ¿Por Qué… MBA? One girl’s MBA application journey!

“¿Por Qué….MBA?” is written by an “enthusiastic, hopeful female consultant” applying to business school. Her witty, honest, and comprehensive posts about the GMAT prep and MBA application process are must-reads for anyone applying to b-school.

3) MBA Journals

Like the FT, whose MBA blog we featured previously, Bloomberg Businessweek recruits MBA students to write blog posts about their experiences. The 8 bloggers behind their MBA Journals attend schools all over the world.

4) School-Hosted Blogs

Sure, MBA students writing for b-school admissions offices certainly won’t be as transparent or unbiased as unaffiliated bloggers. But that doesn’t mean their posts aren’t worthwhile. Reading about others’ experiences at your dream school will help give you a sense of MBA life.
