Statement of Purpose
Your statement of purpose should focus on how and why a Middlebury Institute degree, combined with your past educational and professional experiences, will enable you to achieve your career goals. Please limit your statement of purpose to 600 words.
If you're applying to our MBA in Global Impact Management program, you will submit an essay, instead of a statement of purpose.
MBA Essay Question: Choose one of the traits listed here and give us an example of a time when you exhibited that trait to achieve a significant professional, non-academic accomplishment. Tell this story in 500 words or fewer: Insightful, Resilient, Proactive, Creative, Persistent, Resourceful, or Emotionally Intelligent.
Your resume or curriculum vitae should highlight your educational background and professional experience in one or two pages. Most of our graduate programs do not have specific professional experience requirements. However, for our One Year MBA, you must demonstrate a minimum of two years of professional work experience.
To receive maximum consideration for merit and need-based scholarships, please include a Personal Scholarship Statement with your online application.
Personal Scholarship Statement: Please describe in 250-300 words any academic achievements, community service activities, examples of leadership, or other personal characteristics that make you deserving of scholarships.
Through our online application, you will be able to pay the $65 application fee with a credit or debit card. We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit or debit cards. Application fee waivers are available for students affiliated with our partner organizations or schools.
