As a top-ranked business school, UNC Kenan-Flagler seeks out highly motivated individuals with a passion for leadership and a strong academic record. So what else makes an ideal MBA@UNC applicant? We spoke with Beth Flye, director of admissions for MBA@UNC at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School, to find out.
As you begin to study for the GMAT, you will find that there is no shortage of preparatory material available. But what are the best study methods? How should you schedule your time? How should you study?
It’s possible to get a great GMAT score after only three months of dedicated study, but it requires hard work and serious discipline. In the middle of applying for scholarships and filling out MBA applications, you’ll need to devote a good amount of time to your GMAT practice. Follow these steps to get the best GMAT score you can in only three months.
On June 12, the GMAT will unveil its new section and question type, integrated reasoning (IR). Although this section is described as “new,” it isn’t a significant departure from existing question types. The following is an overview of what you need to know and how to prepare to maximize your GMAT success.
This new section takes the place of one of the essays in the “analytical writing assessment.” Where before test-takers had to write two essays, an “analysis of an issue” (an exercise in supporting your own argument) and an “analysis of an argument” (an exercise in evaluating what’s missing from another’s argument), only the argument essay remains. Integrated reasoning fills exactly the same amount of time. The test will therefore begin with the 30-minute argument essay, proceed directly to the integrated reasoning (also 30 minutes, like the essay it replaces), then give the option of a break before the quantitative section. The test still lasts 3 hours and 30 minutes, or 4 hours with the optional breaks.
In fact, many companies sponsor high potential students in MBA programs as part of their employee retention strategy. Investigate if your firm has a tuition assistance program. Benefits can range from hundreds of dollars to tens of thousand of dollars annually. If your company doesn’t have a formal tuition assistance program, you might be able to convince your management to partially or fully fund your education if you present a compelling case.
