How did everyone overcome this challenge? We asked 29 students of the Class of 2020 about their MBA applications experience including the time length to prepare their whole applications, how long they studied GMAT/GRE, to whom they asked their reference letters, how they prepared for the interview, and their advice for the future MBA students.
On this Byline ICS piece, Aiko Tokiyama, one of the MBA Coordinators, interviewed two current MBA students and one alumna on their experience of studying for an MBA during the first years of motherhood. Doro started the program when her daughter was around 2. Hong found out she had been accepted to the program soon after learning she was pregnant; she began her MBA studies when her daughter was three months old. Aya welcomed her son in the same week the program started in September 2019, so joined her MBA class in March this year.
