We met first with Leadership and Corporate Accountability Professor David Garvin to ask what he thought of the idea of an “integrity pledge” for graduating students. He immediately suggested that we talk with another HBS professor, Rakesh Khurana. Khurana had written a book on the history of management education and, together with Professor Nitin Nohria, had published an article in the Harvard Business Review on making management a profession. (Read it here .) In it they suggested creating a “Hippocratic Oath for Managers” which would serve as a professional credo for MBA graduates. Like the Hippocratic Oath made by doctors or the oaths that attorneys make to be admitted to the bar, a management oath would outline values and ideals to which managers should commit.
Given the open-ended length, it is possible to cover more than one meaningful activity, project or accomplishment. However, the fact that HBS has been consistently trimming down its essay set in recent years likely indicates that a 1,000-word essay would be unwelcome. Moreover, it may be tempting to draft a lengthy essay on traditional subjects such as your career goals, greatest successes, and interest in the school; however, your need for an MBA or specific career goals may be adequately covered in your other materials. This should help to narrow your focus, select your topic and craft a succinct essay. You should take care to steer clear of simply “recycling” essays from HBS’s peer schools, such as Stanford or Wharton, as the adcom will probably spot such an essay based on the highly unfocused nature of the HBS prompt and will not respond positively.

Post college extra curricular activities: Now I am engaging in the IFRS study group whose purpose is to improve
the communication among stakeholders such as business manager in listed companies, BIG4 auditors, IFRS committee
members including regional head and to make IFRS standards better. I am suggesting how IFRS disclosure should be
improved from buyside view while raising case study(eg, How we evaluate one of portfolio companies M&A decision and
