Check Out the Updated Essay Questions for the 2021-2022 Application

If you’re thinking about applying to Wharton’s MBA Program for Executives, we’re excited to report that we have a new essay question. The updates will be reflected in the online application when it launches in early August, but we’ve also listed the essay questions below so you can start to prepare your answers. 

Essay Question 1

What are your career objectives and how will the Wharton MBA Program for Executives contribute to your attainment of this objective?

Essay Question 2

This is a new question for 2021-2022 and will be reflected within the application in August: Research has shown that there is a compelling business case for diversity and inclusion: increased profitability, greater creativity and innovation, and less risk for organizations that have effective DEI practices. What intentional steps have you taken or what would you recommend to support an equitable and inclusive environment at work or elsewhere?

Essay Question 3

Given your already demanding job and the desire to remain committed to important family and personal obligations, how do you plan to handle the additional demands on your time once you enroll?

Essay Question 4

This is an optional essay to explain any extenuating circumstances of which the Admissions Committee should be aware.
