Analysis of Cambridge / Judge Essay 1: What are the key issues facing organizations in your sector over the next three years? What course of action would you recommend to such organizations?

What are the key issues facing organizations in your sector over the next three years?  What course of action would you recommend to such organizations? (300 words)

Focused on the immediate changes and challenges facing the applicant’s chosen field, this opening essay is a chance for applicants to demonstrate their insight into sector-specific issues, as well as their sound judgment with respect to how these might be addressed.  This essay suggests that the admissions committee is interested in identifying prospective students who will be ahead of the curve upon graduating from business school, and in a position to make a meaningful impact on the organizations they join after completing the Judge MBA.

Given the narrow word limit and the likelihood that the admissions reader will not possess deep knowledge of most of the industries applicants will be discussing, the key to this essay will be delivering your predictions in a concise and accessible way, perhaps offering some examples to ground the discussion in terms the reader (and one’s future MBA classmates) will be able to understand.  If you’re feeling stuck on this forward-looking prompt brainstorming with or bouncing ideas off of a colleague or two could be a great starting point for generating and developing ideas.
