How to get the Seth Godin MBA

If you didn’t see it a few days ago, Seth posted that he’d be teaching a few lucky people how to change the world (more details here).  Here are some things you can do to GREATLY improve your odds of getting into the program:

  1. Apply early. Turn in all your stuff as soon as you possibly can.  If you wait until the last day, you’ll have missed out.  Seth rewards those who show up first.
  2. Have a compelling story. Seth always talks about how we live in a story-driven world.  Take this into account when you’re creating your application.
  3. Demonstrate that you can, have, and will continue to lead. Prove that you’re ready to change the world.

Don’t waste your time trying to be uber-creative and thinking of different ways to stand out.  Just do those three things and you’ll have a much better shot.

Also, don’t apply to this if you can’t fully commit.  Seriously.

  1. Charlie – I’m glad I found your blog and this post in particular. I’ve seen some really creative applications but I figure to keep mine simple. Simplicity should stand out as it always does. Just heard about the program so I’m not early but definitely not last minute.

    What do you think could be learned in person that you wish you could have learned digitally?
