Welcome to PrepAdviser and thank you for your question.
A recommendation letter, a.k.a. letter of reference, is part of the application package for admission to programmes for Master’s, MBA or other academic degrees. Most business schools require two or three letters of reference. The letters should provide an outside opinion on your academic potential and capacity for a successful performance in your selected programme.
Recommendation letters should provide an assessment of your academic, professional, personal, and interpersonal skills and qualities. They should also include information and examples of your achievements, and an evaluation of your potential for graduate business study. It is important that they list also the areas of your improvement which your selected programme can address.
