There is an old adage in the technical industry “Good engineers make bad managers”
A vast majority of companies feel that even the best engineers lack the leadership acumen and skill set to manage a technical team.
Majority of STEM graduates get passed over for promotion.
In fact, about 60% of product managers do not have a technical degree!
If you happen to be a STEM graduate, you must be wondering how can you beat the odds.
Luckily for you, MEM is the tailor cut program that can help you fasttrack your career to become a technical leader.
Masters in Engineering Management
Masters in Engineering Management is an interdisciplinary degree designed for engineering or STEM graduates to build the link between engineering, technology and management.
The demand for Engineering Managers is expected to grow by 9% by 2020.
Apart from the market demand, the growth in terms of salary is also lucrative.
Check out the statistics here:
While there is no doubt that MEM is the tailor cut solution to help you transition into a managerial position, you will have to face cut-throat competition to get an acceptance letter from a top school.
In fact , the acceptance rate for top MEM programs is estimated to be 18%-24%!
Primary Reasons Why MEM Applicants Get Rejected
Unable to differentiate between MS, MBA and MEM
Why do you want to pursue an integrated career in technology and management ?
Majority of the candidates prepare their essays for MEM, but their goals reflect an inclination towards MiM/MBA or MS.
You need to explain why exactly you want to go for MEM rather than core management or technical degrees.
The MEM application and interview will have both technical and management related questions, and majority of the applicants fail to put equal emphasis on both.
This results in unbalanced applications which are a passport to the rejected bucket.
Worried that you won't make the cut for your dream MEM School?
It is natural to have doubts in the face of such competitive acceptance rates.
However, with the right strategy you can create an application that gets you into your dream MEM programs.

How does the MEM All-in-One Service work?
Here is a comprehensive video
All-in-One Service Explained Step by Step
Step 1: The Initial Counselling
Which schools can be targeted with my profile? How many schools should I target?
Will these schools be a good fit for me? How can your services help me?
These are just a few of the questions we help tackle during our initial counseling session.
By pairing you with one of our consultants, we give you one on one attention and help resolve all queries you may have.
We help you figure out your unique strengths, the glaring weaknesses and brief you on how exactly we can help you.
Step 2: The Brain Storming Session
A consultant can't really help you if he does not have a good understanding of your profile.
Hence our first official Skype call is an hour long brain storming session where we dig into "the why" behind every life step of yours.
From schooling to college life, right up to your current work experience, we dig into each part, cross questioning you on why you took those particular steps.
Why this particular activity? What did you learn while doing it? How did it help you grow?
These are some questions which will help us dig deep into your profile, and allow us to understand what makes you unique.
The Brain Storming Session is designed to give us an understanding of your motivations and aspirations, knowing which we can help you shortlist prospective schools and decide on your final targets. Hence it is not necessary to have a final list of schools before you start working with us.
Step 3: Essay Content Analysis
The next step would be scheduling Skype calls to discuss your essays.
Here is what we would do:
- Analyze each essay question, and help you understand what the school wants
- Dig into your profile and highlight activities which can be used to make a positive impression
- Help you figure out the content and structure of the essay
- Give you tips on how the readability and flow of the essay can be improved
- Make sure that every line is personalized and is unique to your profile
Notes would be taken during the call, and a recording of the call would be sent to you as well.
At the end of the call, you will have the essay game plan, & would be more than ready to work on your first draft.
Step 4: Proof Reading and Endless Edits
Once you have created your first draft and have sent it to us for review, we will
- Edit the content, making sure there are no abrupt breaks or missing gaps in the story line
- Add suggestions for improvement
- Proofread the essay for any grammatical mistakes
Be ready to have your initial draft ribbed with red and green comments, essays take several edits to hone, and we will make sure yours are perfect.
Additionally, we will send you a sample essay of a previously successful student to give you some inspiration on how to align your thoughts.
What will follow is an exchange of unlimited to & fro emails, with successive drafts, until you are assured that the essay you have is the best possible.
Step 5: Crafting a Powerful Resume
In parallel to your essays, we will start working on the other application material.
Your resume is not only an integral part of your application but is also immensely important during your interview rounds as well.
You have a lot riding on it, so make sure it's perfect.
We send you a preparation pack, complete with business school resume formats and reading material, to get you started.
Then we focus on content and make sure all important elements of your profile have been well represented
We pay special attention to make sure the content is properly defined in bullets & proper data quatification is done.
Then we continue to iterate with you until it’s absolutely perfect – as many times as it takes!
Step 6: Letter of Recommendation
The Letter of Recommendation is an important part of the application and acts as a 3rd party endorser of your skills.
Every school has a different LOR format which is directly sent to your referee.
Here it is imperative that you should guide your referee so that he can support what you have written in your application.
Letting the referee write whatever they want can be a very bad strategy as the LOR can turn out to be too generic or too short.
We will help you understand what the schools are looking for in the LOR, and help you craft a document which can help guide your referees.
If needed we will aid you in crafting the LOR directly as well, making sure nothing is left up to chance.

Step 7: Short Questions
Some schools love to pepper their application with a number of short questions
These can be related to anything from work experience & extracurricular activities to long term and short term career goals.
Via another skype call we will help you craft answers to these questions, making sure you put forward perfect answers that complement your essays.
We will then edit your drafts and hone them to perfection.
Step 8: Final Analysis
In the chaos of getting the essays, LORs, Short questions & Resume in order, people often forget that these are all a part of the same application.
The different elements need to complement each other, not act as singular elements repeating the same things again & again.
Right from the beginning, we take care of this, and upon reaching the finale steps, we make sure to do a recheck and ensure that everything is exactly in its right place.
Step 9: Interview Preparation
Congrats! You made it to the interview round.
The interview is the only thing between you and sure shot success.
We will first share our MiM interview question database which has questions asked to over 100 MiM grads.
Then via two indepth mock interviews, we prepare you to handle any type of question that could be thrown at you.
We will also share tips to make sure you leave a good impression on the interview panel, and give them exactly what they want
By the time we are done, you will be roaring to take on them.

What I exactly needed to convert my rejects to admits
I approached MiM essays after I got 3 rejects. I was really depressed about admissions and wanted a way to get an admit to at least one of the best schools. The approach used to help me was brilliant right from the start. The question guide I had gotten for LBS interview included almost all the questions I was asked in the actual interview. I've realised that such fine tuning of application is the magic to success. I got admits to both the colleges (LBS and LSE). I have already recommended MiM essays to at least 10 people. MiM Essays is THE RIGHT place for any MiM aspirant to be in.
