Professional Statement

Alverno does not require the GMAT. However, a critical component of Alverno's application process is the professional statement. It helps the admissions committee gain a better understanding of you and your professional aspirations. It is also where you can provide any additional information about yourself that you believe would further support your application. The professional statement must be 2-3 pages, double-spaced using size 11 or 12 font. Please include the following:

  • 3-5 specific goals you hope to get out of the program.  We recommend you write your goals in SMART format (S = specific; M = measurable; A = attainable; R = realistic; T = timely).

  • As a result of obtaining an MBA from Alverno College, where do you see yourself in 3-5 years?
