What does the 500 word MBA application statement involve?

Applicants must provide a statement (maximum of 500 words) that outlines their motivation and reasons for undertaking the MBA.  It should demonstrate how the degree is applicable to their career, how it will help their personal development, along with what action they will take to leverage the MBA experience.  For this criteria, the highest rankings will be provided to those applicants where there is a clear nexus between the desired course of study and their existing/desired career path.  This may involve a fundamental change in their career direction or accelerated career progression within an existing career structure.

For students wishing to enter specific majors such as Strategic Procurement or Oil and Gas, it would be expected that they could show how this major would appropriately align with the current/likely career development.
