Achieving MBA Admission is More About “Why” than “What and How” (The MBA Exchange) – answering “why” in your essays is definitely moving, but answering “what and how” type essay questions are also important when applying to Singapore MBA programs.  “What and how” often show your professionalism and maturity.

“…the most significant difference among MBA applicants is not ‘what’ they’ve achieved, or ‘how’ they’ve accomplished it.  Rather the biggest point of difference is ‘why’ they have done what they’ve done.  Revealing the inspiration, vision, raison d’etre behind their past actions and future plans is the best way to differentiate and elevate a business school candidacy.”
