  MQM: Business Analytics

  https://www.fuqua.duke.edu/programs/mqm-business-analytics/application-instructions

  The admissions committee wants to learn more about your personal and professional motivations. To help us get to know you better, you’ll need to provide your thoughts on one short-answer question and two essays as part of your application.

  Instructions for all written submissions:

  83; Responses should use 1.5-line spacing and a font size no smaller than 10-point.

  83; Do not repeat the question in the document you upload with your application.

  83; Respond carefully, fully, and concisely.

  83; Length requirements vary by question and are detailed below.

  83; Responses must be completed before submitting your application.

  All submissions are scanned using plagiarism detection software. Plagiarism is considered a cheating violation within the Fuqua Honor Code and will not be tolerated in the admissions process.

  Required Short Answer Questions

  INSTRUCTIONS:

  Answer this short-answer essay in 2,000 characters, the equivalent of about 250-350 words.

  Question: Why did you select your preferred track(s) (Finance, Forensics, Marketing, or Strategy) and how do they relate to your immediate career goals after completing the MQM: Business Analytics program?

  Required Long Form Essays

  INSTRUCTIONS:

  Present your response to question 1 in list form, numbered 1-25. Some points may be only a few words, while others may be longer. Your complete list should not exceed two pages.

  Question 1:

  “25 Random Things About Yourself” Our spirit of community is what sets the Fuqua experience apart. The concepts extend beyond the student body to include faculty, staff, and administration. When a new person joins the admissions team, we ask that person to share with everyone in the office a list of "25 Random Things About Yourself." As an admissions team, we already know the new hire's professional and academic background, so learning these "25 Random Things" helps us to get to know someone's personality, background, special talents, and more.

  In this spirit, the admissions committee also wants to get to know you beyond the professional and academic achievements listed in your resume and transcript. You can share with us important life experiences, your likes and dislikes, hobbies, achievements, fun facts, or anything that helps us understand what makes you who you are.

  INSTRUCTIONS:

  Your response to essay question 2 should be no more than 350 words.

  Question 2:

  For our MQM: Business Analytics class, the Admissions team is looking for students who are eager to engage with, and learn from, their classmates. This learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom, as extracurricular engagement is an important part of the MQM experience. Describe how you would plan to be engaged outside of the classroom, and how your unique perspective, experiences, and passions will add to the MQM community.

  OPTIONAL ESSAY

  If you feel there are circumstances of which the admissions committee should be aware (e.g., unexplained gaps in work, choice of recommenders or lack of a professional recommendation, inconsistent or questionable academic performance), please explain them. Do NOT upload additional essays nor additional recommendations in this area. The optional essay is intended to provide the admissions committee with insight into your circumstances only.

  所有书面提交的说明

  使用1.5行距和不小于10磅的字号。

  不要在随申请一起上载的文档中重复该问题。

  仔细、全面、简洁地回答。

  长度要求因问题而异,详情如下。

  在提交申请之前,必须完成答复。

  所有提交的文件都使用剽窃检测软件进行扫描。剽窃被认为作弊行为,在录取过程中是不能容忍的。

  要求的简短回答问题

  说明:

  用2000个字符回答这篇短文,大约相当于250-350个字。

  问:在完成MQM:Business Analytics计划后,您为什么选择了自己的首选方向(财务、取证、市场营销或战略),以及它们与您当前的职业目标有何关系?

  要求的长篇论文

  说明:

  以1-25号的列表形式提出你对问题1的回答。有些要点可能只有几个字,而有些要点可能更长。你的完整清单不应超过两页。

  问题1:

  “25个关于你自己的随机事件”我们的社区精神是体验与众不同的原因。这些概念延伸到学生团体之外,包括教师、职员和管理人员。当一个新人加入招生团队时,我们会让他和办公室里的每个人分享一份“关于你自己的25个随机信息”的列表。作为一个招生团队,我们已经知道了新员工的专业和学术背景,所以学习这些“25个随机事件”有助于我们了解某人的个性、背景,特殊才能,等等。

  杜克的招生团队希望通过这样的方式了解真实的申请人,而不是申请人认为的招生官希望看到的人设。作为补充的要求,招生官不仅在文书要求中强调,也在初衷里写到他们希望这25件事不再是关于申请人去反复说简历上展示过的职业成就,而是能做自己,写写关于他们自己的喜怒哀乐、热情所在,那些定义了他们直到申请阶段作为一个个鲜活个体,而不是千篇一律的商科申请人的点点滴滴。这一点我们也可以从招生界面上的小心思中略窥一二,在"Application Instructions"——申请说明的大字下,有一行小字"We want to hear your story"——才是招生官真正想要传达的诉求:说出你的故事。

  虽说是展现自己个性的25件事,但别忘了你想要的申请的商学院注重的气质。如果能在25件事里点到“team”或者“community”相关的经历,包括但不限于志愿者经历、生活中的合作经历、能够打破次元壁融入不同社群、文化的经历等,无疑会为你的申请加分不少。

  本着这种精神,招生委员会还希望了解你,而不仅仅是简历和成绩单上列出的专业和学术成就。你可以和我们分享重要的生活经历,你的好恶,爱好,成就,有趣的事实,或者任何有助于我们了解你是什么造就了你的东西。

  举例子:

  1.避免仅仅是“贴标签”式的说明,尝试不同的表达方式或者补充说明,让你的表述更生动。比如写自己爱吃的食物是25件事中常常会提到的内容,但my favorite food is xxx 的效果远不如下面这两条:

  a) If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be pizza.

  b) Broccoli has always been my favorite food. So, when I became a vegetarian in 2008, it came as a shock to no one.

  2.Favorite 系列是写个人好恶的好方式,但具体的例子会让人印象更深刻:

  a) My favorite board game is Scrabble. My best move was on a family vacation, when I played the game ending, seven-letter, 84-point word “QUIETENS.” This was the final game of a 13-game series against my dad, allowing me to walk away the victor, seven games to six.

  b) Karaoke is my favorite entertainment. I held the record of staying in a Karaoke club, singing and dancing for over 8 hours.

  c) I love movies and some would call me a fanatic because I love to know the backstory of how a movie was made, as well who was the director, cinematographer, producer and can typically name a long list of actors from just about any movie. I can wake up at 2am in the morning and watch a movie in its entirety. Sometimes, it’s the only peaceful time when I can steel away to watch a movie uninterrupted.

  3. 不要过分兜售自己的能力,而是通过事实让人共鸣

  a) I have been watching Japanese animations since I was in junior high school. And that’s why I started to learn Japanese because I hope that one day I can understand the contents without Chinese subtitles.(有好奇心,乐于学习新事物)

  b) Pick a day in the last eight years and I can tell you what I did that day. Some may call my calendar crazy, I just call it organized. (有条理)

  4.在准备这篇文书的时候,可以随时记下一些自己想到的idea或者临时想起来的过去有意思的经历,如果最后得到超过25件事,可以再进行删选。

  5.在保证积极向上的大体基调上,呈现自己的多彩人生!

  注意:招生处并不希望在这25件小事中过多看到与工作或学术相关的成就,且在其他申请材料中呈现过的内容也最好不要出现。 但凡事总有例外,如果某些对你而言重要的相关经历,的确值得再次强调的话,可以补充进来。不过一定要言简意赅。写作时运用第一人称叙事的手法,能将这些故事赋予个人色彩,从而焕发出独特的生命力。

  Duke Fuqua MQM: BA

  杜克BA项目的特点是将项目分为四个Track:分别为金融、市场、策略和取证;因此网申中的track选择,必须和网申的职业规划的填写保持一致。同时3篇Essay也尽显商学院的特色,特别是询问申请者自己25件随意的事(回忆很多独特的经历,如学生组织和志愿者活动,从侧面体现了一下领导力和沟通能力),更是Fuqua商学院多年的传统问题。

  说明:

  你对作文问题2的回答不应超过350字。

  问题2:

  对于我们的MQM:Business Analytics课程,招生团队正在寻找那些渴望与同学接触并向他们学习的学生。这种学习在课堂内外进行,因为课外活动是MQM体验的重要组成部分。请描述您打算如何在课堂之外参与进来,以及您独特的视角、经验和激情将如何为MQM社区添加内容。

  学生应在申请材料中展示出数据处理和人际沟通两方面的实力。

  Duke大学该专业每年虽然招收100多名学生,但是由于申请者众多,竞争异常激烈。

  Duke大学在评估申请者的材料时,非常注重申请者的学习潜力和团队合作的能力。学校一直以来坚持,学习的过程不限于上课听讲,更重要的是适应一个多元化的环境,在团队作业中互相帮助共同进步。(有课程大作业、case study和团队作业的课程,积累了项目经历。)

  这篇Essay的意图是为了考察申请人是否对Fuqua商学院的校园文化和社群特色进行了深入细致的Research。因此在这篇Essay中,申请人需要列举出Fuqua对自身而言重要的资源优势,并通过实例证明双方的契合度,从而引出个人将会为班级及学院做出怎样的贡献,最后表达自己渴望成为Team Fuqua一员的迫切心情。

  在详细的题目说明中特别提到了“student-led government, clubs, centers and events”,因此,你对于Fuqua的调研也应该从这方面起步。 当然了,如果你认为自己能够在其他方面为学院做出贡献,也可以从相应的角度开展Research。

  至于具体的信息来源,可以参考在校生的博客、论坛、以及学院官网发布的任何资讯,和校友聊聊也是不错的选择。另外,Fuqua的YouTube主页也有各种各样的相关视频,能够带领你进一步了解学院的各个方面,总而言之,只要肯下功夫,没有查不到的信息,对于身在内地的申请人而言,你唯一需要担心的就是有没有一个稳定的VPN。

  自选论文

  如果你觉得招生委员会应该注意到一些情况(例如,无法解释的工作差距、推荐人的选择或缺乏专业推荐、学习成绩不一致或有问题),请解释这些情况。不要在这个区域上传额外的文章和建议。这篇自选论文的目的是让招生委员会了解你的情况。
