Global experience for International MBA
Hi, I'm interested in applying to international MBA schools such as LBS, Judge, HKUST, and ESADE. I understand that they view applicants' global experience very strongly. The only experience I have is a summer of study abroad in Geneva and many personal international vacation trips. How can I turn this weakness around and let them understand that I'm really serious studying and ultimately working internationally?
- Eric Allen expert Well....your experience is what it is, but you can highlight the experience you had in Geneva as an eye-opening experience that is leading you to want to do more international work. Also, pointing out your personal trips in your resume and potentially essay could be valuable as well. Not everyone applying has international experience, so don't worry about it too much - just focus on what you DO have working for you and push that. Also, provide a clear explanation why an international MBA program is valuable to you and why international companies would want to hire you. If we can help further, let us know.
