很明显,设计这个问题的目的在于希望你能够说出你对自己的看法。那些比较谦虚的人,和那些来自于强调自我的美国文化以外的其他国家的人,在回答前一半问题的时候会觉得很困难,因为很显然,回答这个问题时需要自我夸赞一下。

那些不是很自信的申请人会觉得保持诚实的同时还要说出他自己缺点是什么很难。

这个问题实际上是个很好的标准来考察你是什么类型的人,是自信的(或傲慢)还是有成就的(或自夸的),是颇有风度的(还是弄权阴险的),成熟的,有自我意识的,还是诚实的申请人。

典型的申请人

大多数申请人罗列出一大堆的优点和一个或两个缺点。他们的缺点经常是是用优点装扮起来的缺点。(“我简直太像一个完美主义者了”、“我工作过于努力”。)

更好的方法

开始写文章之前,选择两到三个你主要的优势。以这些优势为主线,对你其他的优势进行组织,围绕主线来写MBA文书,例如,如果你说自己是非常有决心和毅力的,你可能就应当谈一下你为了最终实现这个目标,而长时间不断努力地工作着,并付出了什么程度的耐心。通常的问题并不在于你无法发现自己的优点,关键是你能不能对他们进行有效的取舍,然后再得心应手地阐述。你需要用有限的优点来确保自己在描述它们的时候具有很强的说服力,而并不是将它们草草罗列一下就可以了。用你的两三处优点作为组织整体的基础会对你的文章有很大的帮助。

记住,MBA文书里只把你的优势以流水账的形式列出来,这种写作方式起不到任何效果。为了让别人相信你的优势并且对此留下深刻的印象,你要举例子来说明。你不用夸自己意志如何坚定。而应当举一个例子,比如你是如何战胜幼年时折磨了你五年时间的血癌的!不过,更大的问题是要找到一个适合谈论的不足。仅将一项优势称为一个不足(“我工作过于努力”)是不行的。这个策略已经有太多申请人用了,所以这样说几乎让人觉得你很不真诚,这样会使读你文章的人一下子觉得烦。另外还有一点,就是你没有按照要求回答问题。要求你说出一个不足而你并没有这样做。除此之外,你不知道自己的弱点意味着你对某一些重要的事情根本就不懂。明白自己的弱点,并以一种努力克服困难的姿态来表现,要比假装没有弱点强得多。如果你认为你存在某种弱点,你就处于一种可以进行建设性的转变的位置上。因为乐意于谈论自己的弱点是成熟的标志,这本身也是一个巨大的优势。

由此可见,在美国MBA文书中,你不要把自己塑造成一个过于完美,羞谈缺点的人,有时候,适当的坦率,能够为你迎来更多的加分。以上就是对美国MBA文书写作如何扬长避短的介绍。既然以上谈到了方法,那接下来就拿一篇经典文书给大家现身说法,希望你能从中找出规律,写出你自己的精彩!

Born into a peasant family isolated by high mountains, I have come a long way to be where I am. A senior manager now of a state-owned company that has grown into a medium-sized foreign trade business in China in only five years, I not only head one of my company’s most important departments but also travel abroad from time to time on behalf of the company. Often hungry and cold as a child, I now enjoy a comfortable life, which I hope will still get significantly better after I receive advanced business training in a quality MBA program.

In many ways, it is thanks to the childhood hardship that I have made my achievements. In trying to help alleviate the financial burden on my parents, I made my debut in the art of money-making at an age when American kids probably could not be hired to work. I still remember earning my first coin by buying fruits from one place and then selling them in another. Too little a profit it might seem, but it counted towards meeting the family’s expenses the. But more importantly, the coin started me out in a business career that I now hope to translate into sizable fortunes.

The hunger and humiliation that I endured as a conspicuously poor child, even by the standards of the poverty-stricken mountains, taught me the importance of success. Luckily, my parents, ignorant as they were, knew that the key t real success would lie in my education, and they toiled and moiled year in and year out to put that key into my hand, in a parental spirit and tradition that probably can only be found in China. Watching my parents working their backs off every day, I acquired the kind of determination, drive, and sense of responsibility not usually expected of Chinese women in China. With my parents’ unswerving support, I studied diligently and outperformed most of my classmates. For years, my academic report card was the main source of pride in my family.

On the strength of my high scores in the National University Entrance Examinations, I entered I 1986 into the Beijing-based University of International Business and Economy, one of the nation’s leading higher-education institutions of its kind, to major in accounting in its Department of International Business Management. Brought up in an isolated community, I was convinced that my country, just as my family, could only achieve real and sustained prosperity by readily doing business with the outside world. Masking full use of every minute I had, I read a variety of books and journals related to my major, through which I broadened my vision and enriched my knowledge. My professional interests were focused mostly on accounting, finance, and international trade. As you can see from the transcripts, my undergraduate academic record was excellent, ranking me among the top three among the 140 students of my department. In recognition of my performance, the university awarded me a stream of scholarships and prizes.

While my grades are outstanding, I am more distinguished by my publications, which demonstrate an insistent quest for real solutions to real problems. The International Business, a widely-read business journal in China, published a number of my articles. These include Reasons of the American Trade Deficit with China (Sept. 1, 1987), Exploration of the Stock-holding System Employed by the Big and Medium-sized State-owned Enterprises (Mar. 29, 1988), and Prospects of the International Shipping Industry (May 5, 1988). In 1990, I worked as a coeditor to the Dictionary of Contemporary Accounting and Financial Management, which has since become a major professional reference book to many Chinese entrepreneurs, accountants, auditors and other professionals in the business community. My editing concentrated on six sections, Accounting, Auditing, Financial Management, International Finance, International taxation, Bonds and Real Estates.

My solid education paid off in my ability to take on a variety of responsibilities in China’s booming economy. After I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in economics in 1990, I first took up the job of an assistant to the funding manager at the China National Technical Import & Export Corporation, where I gradually developed into an experienced accounting professional. Upon a meticulous analysis of the company’s financial statements, reports and other records, I found its financing policy skewed. It was borrowing billions of RMB with high interest rates while maintaining large bank deposits at low interest rates. Together with my supervisor, I rewrote the financing policy, saving the corporation approximately thirty million yuan. To maximize financing efficiency, I also developed an internal banking system that, by closely tracking the actual funding supply and demands of different departments and projects, made full use of the corporation’ financial resources. For this, I received special commendation from the president of the corporation.

Since 1993, I have been meeting increasingly greater challenges at the China Kingdom Import & Export Corporation, a company that I helped to set up. As head of the company’s Financial and Accounting Division, I formulated its accounting rules and policies, internal control mechanism, financing plans, contract-control systems, and many other crucial policies. By meticulous budgeting and accounting, my division played a very important role in the corporation’s rapid growth, which reached an annual total of sales of US $30,000,000 in 1997. This impressive track record now gives it a strong competitive edge over others. It enjoys an A credit rating by the China Merchants Bank, and has been designated an honor importer by the U.S.A Sea-food Association.

Having been in business for eight years, I feel that I have not taken full advantages of my potential, all my achievements notwithstanding. I have practiced my professional expertise in accounting, demonstrated my leadership abilities and perfected my communication skills. But I have yet to become an entrepreneur in my own right, and to fully master the art of modern business. I want to be trained more vigorously in scientific methods of analysis and synthesis. As China’s embrace of market economy gets consolidated, it creates a lot of opportunities and challenges that I do not yet feel fully confident to seize. I need to understand better how a full-blown market economy like that of the United States really works. I am sure that, in many respects, China’s development in the coming decades will mirror the American experience in the past. My business career has so far benefited mostly the companies that I worked for, but a good business education in America will probably spell the beginning of a new era for me. It should be the final leg of my journey before I achieve significant financial success for myself.

Your university is well known for its excellence in American business education. I am sure that, with my extensive business experience on forefront of China’s economic reform and development, I can be a worthy student of yours. I am anxious to benefit from your seasoned guidance and take advantage of your research facilities. If you accept me, you will be not only taking me farther away from the destitution I suffered as a child but also putting me in a position to help lift multitudes of Chinese people out of poverty. When my own company makes not only me but also many other people rich, when many people become insulated through my effort from the kind of suffering that I once endured, I will perhaps finally say I have achieved real success.

申请美国MBA,在写申请文书的时候,一定要突出自己的工作经历,这是所有美国MBA商学院最重视的一点。即要申请文书中体现出自己过去的成就、能力以及领悟,也要结合过去展望未来,写清楚自己的职业目标,同时,这个目标是可行且需要MBA课程的帮助的。以上就是申请美国研究生MBA的文书方法和范文,希望对你有帮助!
