Yes yes yes, we know, you want to make more money. Get a better job. Maybe work in some other part of the world. All that is perfectly fine. But as part of your pre-application MBA preparedness process, we strongly encourage you to step back and consider the question of WHY.

Or maybe you wanted to work in a nonprofit after college but everyone else was going to Wall Street or consulting and so you ended up just following along. And now you’re like, “HEY!
