Thanks a lot for sharing  such exciting stories!
I am a MT of Nestle,which is the world's best food company and the
largest FMCG company.
I have been interested in B-school of Havard
for years,since I was a freshman of BA  degree.
Therefore,I wonder whether my FMCG background is suitable to apply for HBS?
I plan not to switch to the finacial industry or something else.
Just want to back to FMCG,if I finish my MBA study.
Thank you for your attetion.

Hi, Jenny,

Sorry for the late reply. FMCG background is of course suitable for applying HBS. For example, this year about 20% of my class went to corporate for intern. If you are comitted to certain industry, just show your passion and demonstrate how important the school help you to get that.

Recently the application became much tougher than before. As the market is becoming not opportunistic, more and more people from banking and PE joined the application pool. And they are conventionally deemed a competitive group. But anyway, B-school will always recruit people from different industries, just get prepared and try to show the best self!

其实关于行业的选择, 作为B-school的学生, 我们自己都觉得很有争议. 4月份HBS一百周年校庆的时候,学校还特地就学校本身写了一个CASE, 让大家讨论学校要怎么发展,课程要怎么设计等等.然后由学生投票来选择他们最喜欢的老师来教.

课程进行中有学生就提出来既然学校是一个General management program,为什么大家毕业了都还是选择去投资银行,PE,或者consulting, 去公司做general mangement似乎只有一部分. 有人回答说是因为工资高的原因,没有人愿意自降工资尤其觉得自己本身不比别人差的情况下, 也有人说这只是short-term来看的,等到longterm大家还是非常需要general management的skill.  也有人投诉说是career office的问题, 说we were literally given the job we don't know what to do. 当然也有人说career office已经够好的了, 这都是个人选择问题. 下面就是我们班讨论当中的一个小片段. Just for fun!

I have got another question.
Hope you may help me,Michille.
Recently,I have searched some infortmation about my desired B-schools,by
surfing the  official website of some schools.
Could you pleas tell me what're other methods to find valuable information
of B-schools?
By doing so,perhaps when I face the admission officer,I can show how much
I have known about the school , which is sincere and specific!
Thanks a lot for you attention.

The best way is to ask admission office to introduce 1-2 current students (preferrably Chinese students) and try to set up a 10-15 minute phone call with them.  

The admission officer would love you to do that. Every school has admission ambassador students for this kind of questions. You can ask those students to tell you the difference between schools, career development, job placement or even the questions those admissions might ask you. Also, you can ask them to give you advice upon your situation.

Don't be afraid of such trouble. It would bring you truly valuable information. And (I guess) BeBeyond should have an extensive alumni network among top US B-schools and you should find a way to take advantage of it.
