PostHeaderIcon Presenting… “My Grad School Application”

The University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business (GSB) is the first graduate program in the U.S. to require a PowerPoint presentation be submitted as part of the application process.

Many schools have been encouraging additional application material that takes advantage of new technology, everything from online applications to, well, PowerPoint presentations, but the Chicago GSB is the first to require it of applicants.

Presentations are limited to four slides (eh? what the heck are they gonna learn about someone in FOUR slides?) with no video or web links.

I did a bit of digging on the Chicago GSB site and could not find any reference to this requirement on their sparse application info site, so I’m relying on what I found on accountingweb.

VAs in the Chicago area might want to check this out – a whole new market for those skilled in presentation creation.
