What leadership characteristics did you exemplify in this situation that allowed you to succeed?Describe a situation when failure has been your fuel. What was your failure (or when did you not succeed to your full potential), and how did you use this as motivation to move forward and be successful in a future situation?Describe the personal brand that you will bring to business school using examples or experiences that support how you’ve developed it. How do you believe your personal brand will strengthen the McDonough community? As you complete your MBA program, how do you hope to see your personal brand evolve through the transformative experience of business school?Hopeful entrants to the Georgetown McDonough full-time and Flex MBA programs may apply on October 9, 2018; January 7, 2019; April 1, 2019; and May 1, 2019.
