In order to illustrate your motivation for the IBA programme we ask you to answer four questions in the OLAF. Your answers to these questions should be written concisely (max 1,200 characters (approximately 1/4 page) per question) and will be used to help the IBA selection committee decide whether you are the type of student that fits the programme. Each question will be evaluated with a score ranging from 0 (poor) to 5 (excellent). The overall score for your motivation will contribute to 25% of your total score, which will be used to determine your final rank, so read the questions carefully!
The four motivation questions are:
- Please describe a time in which you worked with people from different backgrounds and what you learned from that experience.
- Briefly describe a time in which you had to step out of your comfort zone and what you learned from that experience.
- How do you plan to integrate with students from other countries? (with this question you are expected to explain what you will actually do to integrate with your prospective students)
- What proves your sincere interest in a programme like IBA, from both an international and business perspective?
