Analysis of Cambridge / Judge Essay 3: What are your short and long term career objectives? What skills/characteristics do you already have that will help you to achieve them? What do you hope to gain from the degree and how do you feel it will help you achieve the career objectives you have?

What are your short and long term career objectives?  What skills/characteristics do you already have that will help you to achieve them?  What do you hope to gain from the degree and how do you feel it will help you achieve the career objectives you have? (500 words)

Closing out its set of questions, Cambridge includes a fairly standard career goals essay of the sort featured in many MBA programs’ applications.  Applicants are asked to outline their immediate post-MBA professional objectives, as well as their longer term plans.  As is also typical, Judge asks applicants to explain what they hope to gain from its MBA program, and to link the skills and knowledge they’ll acquire during this year of study to their ability to achieve these goals.  Meanwhile, the explicit request that applicants inventory the existing skills and characteristics that will help them along their chosen paths is a somewhat unusual one, so candidates will need to reflect on their qualifications and take care in addressing this element of the prompt.

As is the case with most schools, demonstrating an understanding of the unique merits of Judge’s program is crucial to an effective response to this question. Taking the time to learn about the school’s curriculum, special programs and extracurricular activities – whether through a visit to campus, conversation with alumni or students, or conducting thorough research via the school’s website – will pay dividends here.
