An Open Letter to Prince Harry: Get Your MBA
Dear Prince Harry of Wales,
Rumor has it, you’re on the verge of a huge transition. After a decade in the British Army, you’ve got the experience, skills, and instincts crucial for success in any career you choose, and you’re weighing opportunities for a new chapter in your life.
I have your answer: join the Carlson School MBA class of 2018.
You’ll be one of many military veterans in the classroom. Today, 1 in 5 Carlson Full-Time MBA students is a veteran learning the language of business as they transition from military service to civilian life.
Our location in the heart of Minneapolis puts you within a stone’s throw of 17 Fortune 500 companies’ headquarters and a variety of other leading employers. Delta Airlines offers non-stop flights from Heathrow to Minneapolis St. Paul International that are just under nine hours, and according to our friends at the Atlantic, it’s well worth the journey.
Start thinking now about which of the four Carlson Enterprise programs will be right for you. Will you develop marketing strategies for real-world clients through the Brand Enterprise? Maybe you’ll manage a $38 million investment fund in the Funds Enterprise or advise businesses how to address pressing challenges in the Consulting Enterprise. Given your knack for entrepreneurship, proven by the success of the Invictus Games, I recommend the Ventures Enterprise where you can build your own business from the ground up.
This is the perfect place for you to carry forward your family’s commitment to charity. The Carlson School makes it a priority to give back to the community, and our students lead a variety of initiatives to raise money for those in need. Just last month, the MBA class raised more than $30,000 for Paralyzed Veterans of America.
I urge you to begin your application to the internationally ranked Carlson Full-Time MBA program. We understand you’ll be busy wrapping up your duties in Australia this spring, but rest assured, the Duke of Cambridge will have plenty of time to write your letter of recommendation, as we accept applications for admission on a rolling basis.
Associate Dean of MBA Programs, Carlson School of Management
P.S. The Partners Club offers career support and hosts special events to help students’ partners get acclimated to a new city, and would welcome Emma Watson, should she be joining you in Minneapolis.
