Essays

The Academic Statement of Purpose and the Personal History Statement are two of the most important documents in your graduate school application. Information in the Personal History Statement should complement but not duplicate information in the Academic Statement of Purpose. Each essay should be up to 500 well-crafted words.

Academic Statement of Purpose (ASOP)

What are your professional plans and career goals? How will attending graduate school assist you in reaching those goals?
Describe your research, scholarly, or creative interests. What topics are of particular interest to you? Reviewers know that interests change over time but try to be as specific as possible.
Discuss how your experiences, skills, and abilities have prepared you for graduate study. Relevant topics may include coursework, work and research experiences, internships, presentations, exhibits, publications, and community service. If you describe a research or scholarly experience, include information on the topic, research mentor, your role, and outcomes.
Describe how your skills, preparation, and interests are a match for the program to which you are applying. Identify faculty who share your research and scholarly interests. Reviewers will want to know that you have researched the program, faculty, and key focus areas.


Personal History Statement (PHS)
Required of all applicants:

Describe how your background and life experiences contribute to your ability to be both persistent and resourceful in graduate school.
Describe how your life experiences have prepared you to contribute to an academic community where scholars with diverse research interests, abilities, backgrounds, and experiences are supported, respected, and valued.


Optional:

Please address concerns that you may have that your academic record does not reflect your true capabilities and discuss mitigating factors that have affected your academic record. Reviewers will be interested in understanding your accomplishments relative to your opportunities.

Purdue MSBA Recommendation Letters

2 Letters of recommendation-Two online recommendations are required in order for your application to be reviewed.

No paper recommendations will be accepted. We prefer that recommenders be faculty or instructors who are able to render an opinion on the basis of close, current and sustained observation. 

We strongly urge that one recommendation is from your direct supervisor. Recommendations from friends, family members, acquaintances and other sources unable to evaluate professional or academic qualifications for study are not acceptable. No more than two recommendations are needed.
