If you are more than twelve weeks from applying, you may be wondering what you can do to begin building the foundation for your future applications. In this section, we provide some of the conceptual underpinnings of our approach and tell you about substantive steps you can take now to ensure that your absolute best application emerges once you start the MBA Prep Steps™ program.
We begin with one of the most important questions you should answer before proceeding any further on this journey: “Should You Get an MBA?” Answering this question beyond a shadow of a doubt is critical to your success in the MBA application process.
Afterwards, we will provide a brief history of the MBA degree, and help you to understand the MBA application process as a whole. Then, we introduce you to the heart and soul of this book, our 8-12 week MBA Prep Steps™ Program.
Your journey to building an outstanding MBA application then begins with the steps we recommend that you take to prepare for the MBA Prep Steps™ program. The most important of these preparatory activities is to evaluate your candidacy objectively and to follow our prescriptions for making your candidacy that much stronger.
