The MBA application process can be quite challenging at first. Finding a benchmark and evaluating oneself is hard. When I began my application process, I wasn't very confident about my chances. Shailesh and Mayank evaluated my profile thoroughly and were very patient in understanding my constraints and requirements. Their mentorship helped me, not just with my applications to universities abroad, but also through the application process to Indian schools."

Here is a snapshot of the vital information for the applicants
If you’re someone who feels they can better express themselves and their reasons for applying to the Questrom School of Business through a video, we encourage you to complete the video essays. Within the “Documents” section of the “Program Materials” portion of the application, you will find your personalized link to the video essay website. Clicking this link will bring you to the Kira Talent website, our partner for the video essay process. When you register, you must use the same email address that you used to create your admission application account.
Upon creating your account with Kira Talent, you can begin your video essays. You’ll need to use an internet-connected computer with a webcam and microphone. We will first ask you a question that all candidates will receive. You’ll have thirty seconds to prepare, and then 60 seconds to record your answer. This will then repeat for two additional random short-answer questions.
You can practice an unlimited number of times with Kira Talent’s provided example questions, but once you start the formal video essay questions, you are only allowed one opportunity. This allows the committee to see your candid responses. The formal process should only take you about five minutes to complete, and can be done on your own time. If you have any questions about your video interview once you’ve registered, please contact email@example.com.

The University saw its inception in 1839 by the name of Newbury Biblical Institute in Newbury, Vermont. The Institute relocated to Boston in 1867 and was named as Boston Theological Institute. In 1869, three trustees of the Institute pioneered an effort to obtain a charter from Massachusetts Legislature for a university by the name of Boston University. A fire broke out in 1872 that destroyed one of the buildings and the insurance companies with which the building was insured were already facing bankruptcy. Hence, left with no other option, the land was sold piecemeal as development site. Later, the University housed its new facilities in Beacon Hill, Boylston Street and Copley Square. The School President Lemuel Murlin led an effort towards buying a 15 acre land along the Charles River in order to unify the geographically scattered school. His successor Daniel L. Marsh led a series of fund- raising campaigns in tandem with Murlin’s efforts. Under the presidency of John Silber, the School saw much expansion and a new building for School of Management came into being.
