A lil bit more :

I am interested in an MBA because:

My strengths (academic, personal, professional), which have helped me be successful and/or which my colleagues have praised, include:

My weaknesses, which have hindered my performance or created obstacles, include:

With an MBA, I plan to pursue these interests:

Management Field/Job Function:

Industry:
following are reasons/evidence that an MBA will help me achieve my goals (relate research to targeted industry or job requirements, natural strengths and weaknesses, and timing):

Personal factors I must consider (family, lifestyle, financial, etc.):

Allows me to declare a concentration of electives in my field.

Can you define who you are in terms of what is important to you? Is it lifestyle (what kind), job satisfaction (define), security/income, or something else? How do your priorities affect one another?

Do you feel strongly about some function and/or industry within business? Why? Which MBA fields, or at least functional areas, are most appealing to you? You do not need to know with 100 percent conviction which job you want, but you must have a direction. (If you do not know enough about the business functions to feel strongly about an area, you are not ready for business school.)

Do you have natural aptitudes that others notice? Do those skills lend themselves to any particular MBA vocations?

What initiated your interest in an MBA?

If you do not pursue an MBA, how are your options different than with the degree? Can you still get into your chosen field without an MBA, through other training or experience?

Beyond the MBA, do you need any additional resources (training, experience, financial, etc.) to achieve your long-term plans? What gaps exist in your background, experience, or training (beyond an MBA) that could stop you from achieving your goals?

Where do you see yourself 3 years from now ?

If not admitted to any MBA course, what would you do ?

How would your friends and professors rate you ?

Why have you chosen this institute ?

Why should we take you ?

Describe how you have coped with a failure in my life ?

What has been your greatest accomplishment ?

What motivates you ?

How do you evaluate success ?

What qualities should a successful manager have ?
