The Stern MBA essays include one mandatory essay and a second with two optional subjects:

Essay 1 is called Professional Aspirations, 750 words:

  • Why pursue an MBA (or dual degree) at this point in your life?
  • What actions have you taken to determine that Stern is the best fit for your MBA experience?
  • What do you see yourself doing professionally upon graduation?

Essay 2 offers these options:

Option A: Your Two Paths, 500 words:

  • Describe two different and distinct paths you could see your career taking long term. How do you see your two paths unfolding?
  • What factors will most determine which path you will take?
  • How do your paths tie to the mission of NYU Stern?

Option B: Personal Expression:

Please describe yourself to your MBA classmates. You may use almost any method to convey your message (e.g. words, illustrations). Feel free to be creative.

Essay Content Issues

Essay 1 requires you to create a storyline for your essay.

Essay 2’s two options are also very effective filters. Option A allows you to consider options, integrating your response with Stern’s MBA. Option B is a free form exercise, allowing you to show your communications and creative skills.

Essay content values

Essay 1 is a perspective, based on your career track options. You need to answer the questions in a logical sequence, creating a full story.

Essay 2 Option A, “Your Two Paths”, deals with your thinking, showing how you visualize your career options, in context with the Stern MBA. Option B is more demanding than it looks, requiring you to deliver a creative, expressive picture of yourself.

Essay samples

The following paragraphs show the process of addressing specific subjects and creating a narrative track for your essay:

Essay 1

My decision to pursue an MBA is based on a clear understanding of the need for advanced management skills to match my career aspirations. The Stern MBA was my first choice, offering clear values for my needs. Stern’s enlightened mission statement also encouraged me to apply, reflecting many of my own core values.

Essay 2

Option A: The Two Paths

I’m currently choosing between two very different career paths. One is a business media career, based on the corporate aspect of media business. The other is a production-based career, based on the creative element of media production. For both options, I require strong business skills and qualifications.

Option B: About Myself

I’m a consultant. I run my own business, working in HR consulting with some of America’s leading corporations about HR practices, training, career development and best practice staffing, including retention. It was just recently that I realized I needed to do something about my own career development.

Essay evaluation

You need to evaluate your essays as follows:

  • Do your essays effectively answer all aspects of Stern’s requirements?
  • Is the content clearly presented for your reader?
  • Are you unreservedly sure your essays are of a high standard, and you’re happy with them?

When you can say “yes” to each Stern and Tuck MBA essay, your essays are ready to submit.
