What’s the biggest difference between an MBA and an undergrad?
“Work experience” or “age” might immediately come to mind.
Or, perhaps, “level of polish” or “presentation skills.”
And if you’re more cynical, “amount of student debt” might also be up there.
But how can you distinguish an MBA from an undergraduate at a glance?
There’s no foolproof way to do this in real life, but if you’re looking at email, it’s trivial.
I can look at any email message and tell, based on the first 2-3 sentences alone, whether a high school student, university student, MBA, or seasoned professional sent it.
It’s easy because emails from younger students are almost universally awful.
It’s a quick win, but also an impactful one.
