What to Do When Shortlisted for MBA Course

By: J.J. Yong

When you are interested in an online MBA course you may need to apply in advance to hopefully be accepted. The time will come when the online business school will announce who has been accepted and who has been short listed. If you have been short listed you may be wondering what else you need to face in the process of trying to get your post-graduate business course.

Staying On Task After You Have Been Short Listed.

Nothing can be more frustrating than being short listed for that online post-graduate business administration course that you need to get your degree. Many people have a tendency just to give up when they have been short listed and decide that they must not be meant to get their MBA. This is a common reaction and while you have every right to be frustrated, you cannot allow for this to distract you. You have been working toward this particular post-graduate business course for awhile now and being short listed doesn't have to be the end of the world.

Now that you have been short listed you need to start looking into all of the top business schools. If one short listed you, why not consider the others? You may still be able to apply for other courses and get into them, or you should at least plan to apply to other courses next time around so you are sure that you are going to get into at least one of them. Having a back up plan is essential so you know that you will not be short listed next time.

While being short listed when trying to get into an online MBA course can be frustrating you also need to look at it from a positive point of view. When you are on the short list now, it means if anyone drops out that you may be able to take their place. This may also mean that next time around you will be certain to get a spot so you can get your course underway so you can get your post-graduate business administration qualification and be done with it. Don't give up, being short listed is simply a delay in the plan and while you might feel like you are facing a lot of uncertainty in what comes next, you simply need to be patient and keep your head down and keep working toward your goal.
