There are special moments that pull everything we have learned into focus. When theory, practice, experience and talent all come to one sharp point -- a decision that shapes a definitive course of action. When it's no longer an issue of what can be done, but of what you will do.

When most people think of “MBA” the first name that pops into their mind is Harvard Business School. Harvard Business School was established in 1908 and has been a top choice of B-school for most MBA aspirants. However, receiving more than 10,000 applications per year, Harvard Business School is one of the most difficult MBA programs to get into. That’s why we’ve prepared this video to help you make your Harvard admissions essays stand out! To get into Harvard other than a high GMAT score you also need to be able to tell your story in a compelling and unique fashion in your Application essay. Writing any MBA application essay is a hard task, however, Harvard raises the bar with its highly-challenging yet open-ended prompt. In fact, HBS liked the question so much last year, they kept it unchanged for this admissions season. Essay Question: “As we review your application, what more would you like us to know as we consider your candidacy for the Harvard Business School MBA Program?” There is no word limit and it goes on to say, “Don’t over think, over craft or overwrite. Just answer the question in clear language and that those of us who don’t know your world can understand”. When you are writing the essay avoid a lot of jargons. They already have your resume, they already have your recommendation letters, they have your undergrad transcripts, they have your entire work experience, they have all your achievements, they have your GMAT scores with them, they have your Quant and verbal split. They have everything about you. They know all of this and now tell them something else about you. Now if you think about this at a very fundamental level, what Harvard is really looking at is that one story that inspires you. That one thing that gives them the “Why” about you. “What’ they already know but the “Why” they need know. So watch this video where we tell you a step by step guide to approaching your Harvard Business School Application essay.

SWOT analysis in practice - Starbucks -------------------------------- Strategy analysis has two main branches – analysis of a firm’s external environment and analysis of a firm’s internal environment. SWOT is a famous framework that allows us to combine the two types of analysis. SWOT is sometimes referred to as internal-external analysis. The acronym SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. The first two, Strengths and Weaknesses, are related to a firm’s internal environment, while the last two, Opportunities and Threats, consider its external environment. Internal strengths and external opportunities are vertically paired as helpful elements, while internal weaknesses and external threats are paired as harmful elements. if we perform a company analysis, under strengths, we would expect to see its core competences, the areas where the business excels and has a competitive advantage over competitors. Weaknesses are areas that need improvement. Such vulnerabilities place a company at a disadvantage when competing against other firms. Opportunities can be seen as favorable factors existing in a company’s external environment, in the industry where it operates, and have the potential to improve its current results and competitive positioning. Threats arise in a company’s external environment and might harm its current business.
