Background Verification: The Final Step in the MBA Admissions Process. Don’t Go It Alone

Suited man touches forehead in concern

Did you know that when you receive an official offer of admission, the screening process continues and enrollment is not guaranteed? Most business schools conduct pre-matriculation verification to confirm the personal and professional profiles of admitted applicants. Some engage agencies such as Kroll or Re Vera. So, as an admit, it is essential for you to anticipate and prepare for this final check before quitting your job and packing your bags for b-school.

Even applicants who have been completely open and accurate in their apps but have unusual work experience without complete documentation may be asked some probing questions. Gaps or inconsistencies can flag a candidate for further probing.

As anxiety-inducing as that may sound, having your background scrutinized at this time doesn’t mean the offer of admission will be rescinded. It could be as simple as providing a brief explanation or clarification to the verification agency! The key is to prepare in advance for the background verification process so you can respond promptly in a cool, calm and confident manner and not raise further red flags.
