International business schools demand a set amount of work experience from applicants applying for Master of Business Administration (MBA) program. Professional Letters of Recommendation (LOR) are a mandatory requirement in the application and most institutes demand at least 2 distinctive recommendation letters.

A strong LOR from your current/former supervisor, manager or employer can provide you a competitive edge over other applicants. For reference we have provided a sample LOR from a supervisor for the MBA program, to help you plan your recommendation letter.

NoteThe mentioned sample is just for reference and students should not copy the letter to just fill it with their details. It would not convey the unique aspects of your profile and thus, can reduce your chances of acceptance.


Sample LOR for MBA #1

To whom it may concern,

I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Ms. XYZ for the MBA program at your institute. As a mentor working at ABC Solutions, I have known her since September 2019 and found her to be a creative and diligent professional.

In June 2020, XYZ helped us in presenting the future road map for online classes in government schools. Her technical knowledge to bring scalable and efficient ideas to the table was commendable. Her ability to shoulder responsibilities with a positive attitude was evident from the fact that she volunteered to be physically present in the schools during lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic in May 2020. Her performance has been appreciated on numerous occasions for demonstrating flexibility. The data collated for online classes demanded extensive work and required her to coordinate with entire staff of the school which Shweta managed seamlessly. 

Moreover, I have closely observed her rapport with staff members and appreciate her calm approach under demanding situations. She is a source of constant encouragement for seniors and junior students alike. I have also observed her to be ambitious and that's natural given her young age and drive to achieve perfection. I believe that her passion will lead her to climb up ladders of achievements.  

I was happy to know her aspirations for higher education and believe that she will be able to make the most out of program and would be valuable fit at your institution. I strongly recommend her for her studies at your esteemed institution. Please feel free to reach out for any queries.

Sincerely,

Recommender’s Full Name

Sample LOR for MBA #2

To whom it may concern,

Being the Lead Engineer from the Mechanical Department for several projects that XYZ worked on as a Design Engineer at the ABC New Delhi office since 2014, we have had a close affiliation. Unequivocally, I have seen her grow as a Responsible Engineer (RE) to Area Lead in a short span of time. XYZ had not only proved her technical skills as a mechanical engineer but also exhibited qualities of a successful leader. 

XYZ has hands-on experience with different kinds of mainstream static equipment such as pressure vessels, columns reactors, heat exchangers, air cooled heat exchangers and even proprietary items such as column internals, electric heaters, double-pipe, multi-tube and hair-pin heat exchangers. Her excellent technical aptitude has helped in speedy completion of many projects. She produced outstanding results as a team manager where-in up to fifteen members directly reported to her. Not only diligent, but some out of the box thinking made XYZ one of the blue-eyed employees as she had presented multifarious value addition and cost saving ideas for project which were accepted by client and implemented too. Some of these ideas included change in type of column internal for a H2S Absorber to meet gas train hydraulic guarantee, revising the grade of carbon steel pressure vessels to help reduce thickness by 5 – 10%, change in nozzle metallurgy to a material that is more commercially available, and eliminate use of scaffolding.

She actively coordinated with other departments and verticals at the organization, demonstrating her effective coordination and communication skills. Being compassionate, XYZ had been an active member of ABC-Cares wherein she helped various NGOs for fund raising, helped the physically challenged and brought up donation drives. Since, ABC supports GROW: Growing Representation & Opportunity for Women, she had also been an active committee member and had championed the efforts to let the forthcoming new mothers learn from her experience by letting out pointers that can help them strike a balance between work and the fledgling motherhood. She was entrusted to promote a campaign for “Healthy eating and better lifestyle” between the employees every year on the office level.

Owing to her resolve, credibility, and integrity, I feel honoured to be writing this recommendation for her at your university. Please feel free to contact for any further information or discussion.

Sincerely,
