School Wants PowerPoint Presentations with Admission Forms

powerpoint student admissionThe Graduate School of Business at University of Chicago are trying a new experiment - they are asking MBA aspirants to include a PowerPoint presentation in their applications.

Students will have to limit their presentations to text, images and clipart but no hyperlinks or audio-video embeds.

If applicants do not have access to PowerPoint or a similar presentation software, they can email the admissions office for alternative methods.

One reason for such a requirement is that students will anyway have to master PowerPoint in their future jobs. Hmm..

The original creators of PowerPoint were against the idea of kids using this software since “children need to think and write in complete paragraphs."
