Path2MBA Spotlight:
Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business

Greetings From JumpStart!

Considering getting your MBA? The JumpStart Path2MBA prepares undergraduate students and working professionals to engage directly with admissions officers at our MBA program partners.

Regardless of which MBA program you pursue, there are foundational elements of the MBA Essay.

Join us for a unique, small group workshop with Duke admissions officers engaging with working professionals and undergraduate students.

Although the experience is hosted by Duke, you do not have to be in the application process for Duke to participate.

The ‘Team Fuqua’ spirit and community is one of the things that sets the MBA experience apart, and it is a concept that extends beyond the student body to include faculty, staff, and administration. Please share with us “25 Random Things” about you.

Join us for a unique, small group workshop with Fuqua admissions officers focused on the following three experiences.

  • Admissions officers will provide context on the application process and specifically focus on what you need to know specific to the Essay(s).  For example, how does an admissions committee think about the essay relative to the decision to admit or not.
  • Hear from current students about their experience and how they navigated the admissions process.
  • Engage in a guided small group working session for you to brainstorm, prep for a “Random Things” Essay, and network among peers.  Here is a link to a blog that students wrote about Duke’s Random 25 essay.
