Application Essays

LSE MMS Long Essays

Question 1 (
600 words)

The “Team Fuqua” spirit and community is one of the things that set the Fuqua experience apart, and it is a concept that extends 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, they already know the new hire’s professional and academic background, so learning these “25 Random Things” would help them 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 the important life experiences, your likes, and dislikes, along with your hobbies, achievements, fun facts, or anything that helps us understand what makes you who you are.

Question 2 (400 words)

Chose only one of the two options below. Respond in 350 words at most.

Option 1 Question: For our MMS: Foundations of Business 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 MMS 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 MMS community.

Option 2 Question: The MMS: Foundations of Business program is developing leaders who are able to effect change in the communities of which they are a part. Share a time that you were able to make a change in your community: at school, at work, or at home. How will you use the lessons you learned and skills you developed from this experience as an MMS student?

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.

LSE MMS Short Questions

The LSE MMS Application consists of 3 short questions which in many ways supplement your essay questions and cover different areas of your profile. Don’t make the mistake of underestimating these short questions and make sure they add to the profile you have created in your long essays and don’t just reiterate what you have already mentioned.

  • Why are you pursuing the MMS degree at this stage in your professional development?
  • What are your immediate career goals after completing the MMS program?
  • Life is full of uncertainties, and plans and circumstances can change. As a result, navigating a career requires you to be adaptable. Should the immediate goals that you provided above not materialize, what alternative directions have you considered?
