Were at the leading edge of the demographic dynamic that is sweeping the country. Our mission at the Cox School is to serve the business community. We would be remiss if we werent taking a leadership position in this. Miguel Quiñones, O. Paul Corley Distinguished Chair in Organizational Behavior and academic director of the Latino Leadership Initiative, offered additional insight.

This self-awareness of how their behaviors could be perceived by others and how organizations have a certain template has been eye-opening.

John Roeder, assistant dean of graduate admissions, was the featured guest in a Q&A column offering advice to students applying to graduate school. My advice is to be yourself. Dont tell us what you think we want to hear, as it will be a disservice to the admissions process and to your own potential career. Through the essay and interview, we are trying to assess if our business school will be able to get you into the job or position that you want to pursue following graduation. If you are not honest, or have not done the self-assessment necessary in advance of the essay or interview process, it is much harder for us to make an assessment of your candidacy.
