Working toward your MBA is a noble goal. Whether you have been in the work force for some time or if you've just come out of college, you know that getting an MBA proves that you have business knowledge on top of your four year degree. It is essentially the icing on the cake for anyone wanting to climb the business ladder or to start their own business. It shows that you are willing to go that extra mile in order to attain the business knowledge you need to help a business work.

But did you know there are strict admittance policies to any MBA program, especially when considering a superb MBA program such as with Harvard or Stanford. If you are reading this now, then you already know what most of these policies consist of. There is the application and the previous college transcripts that you must provide. There are essays you must write and potentially tests you must take to show that you can qualify to get into such a prestigious program. However, there is also one very important step one must also provide that has a great deal of importance to any MBA admissions board. That is you must also provide 2 or 3 written recommendations from people you work with that will vouch for your work ethic and leadership skills.

You may have never been forced to garner such letters, but any MBA admissions board will want to know why they should choose you to be a part of their program. Here is an MBA Reference Letter Sample for you to model your own after. When you talk to your prospective employer about writing the letter, follow this format--giving concrete examples of your work--and you will quickly move to the front of the admittance line.

Dear MBA Admissions Board:

This letter is to provide you with my recommendation for Susan to your highly respected MBA program. Susan has worked as an assistant project lead for our company for over four years, and has been a great asset to our company. Susan has gained a mountain of experience with clients as well as our own project delivery teams and is ready and excited to get into your MBA program.

Susan's input has been beneficial in keeping many or our projects on track. When a new client came on board and overwhelmed our resourcing capacity, Susan investigated outsourcing and contract workers and helped bring additional resources on board to help with the work load. She helped the team to draw up roles and responsibilities so that our team was able to deliver even though we were going through a bit of turmoil at the time.

In addition to Susan's capacity to take on projects, she is also willing to learn enough of the technical aspects of the business plan so that she understands what needs to be done to reach the end goal. On one project, Susan spent a day on the line with a shipping manager so that she could understand how their delivery capabilities would fit into the overall project plan. From there she was able to make informed decisions on how easily we could meet our project goals.

Susan is an asset to our team, and there is no better person to bring into your MBA program. Susan will represent your university well, and she won't disappoint you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.

Sincerely,

Jack Reynolds, Associate Manager
