What makes mbaMission the preeminent MBA admissions consulting firm?
We offer a combination of strengths and attributes that no other firm can match. Here is what you need to know about mbaMission:
We are the only MBA admissions consulting firm exclusively recommended by the world’s two leading GMAT prep providers, Manhattan GMAT and Kaplan.
No other MBA admissions consulting firm is recommended by either Manhattan GMAT or Kaplan, yet mbaMission is recommended by both. As Manhattan GMAT president Dan Gonzalez explains, “We used to work with ten MBA admissions consulting firms, but our GMAT students kept telling us that mbaMission delivered the best customer experience.” As for Kaplan, it actually shut down its own MBA admissions consulting operations in favor of sending interested clients to us.
The MBA admissions committees will be reading about you. Having an MBA admissions consultant who is an elite communicator first and foremost is crucial to your success. No other MBA admissions consulting firm can boast that its entire team of consultants has work in the public domain, but mbaMission actually requires it. Our experienced professional writers and editors include, for example, an ambassadorial speechwriter, a managing editor with Fast Company and Inc. magazines, an author of the book 65 Successful Harvard Business School Application Essays and a journalist who has interviewed world leaders.
All of mbaMission’s Senior Consultants have earned MBAs from the world’s leading business schools and specialized in a variety of disciplines. As a result, we know the MBA experience intimately and stay constantly informed through regular communications with business school students, alumni, admissions officers and candidates, plus our ongoing research for our Insider’s Guides.
This is not a second or part-time job for our consultants—this is exclusively what we do. By focusing only on MBA admissions consulting, we get better and better every day and every season. Period. Why trust your application to an MBA admissions consultant who is not exclusively focused on helping you succeed?
Being an experienced communicator and possessing an MBA degree are not the only qualifications necessary to be an mbaMission admissions consultant. To make the cut, potential consultants must first demonstrate their competency through multiple interviews, five writing and editing assignments, extensive readings and a prolonged period of mentorship. Thereafter, our Tuesday meetings and annual training conference ensure that our consultants are always on top of their game. Maintaining a full-time staff allows us to invest in our consultants, and they in turn invest in you, our clients.
We have a dedicated research and publications team that works year-round producing materials designed to ensure that you have up-to-date knowledge of your target schools. Interviews with students and alumni of the leading MBA programs, input from the schools’ admissions representatives, information provided by our clients and constant monitoring of Web sites and news sources inform our blog, our Insider’s Guides and our Interview Guides. Further, our founder and president wrote the Complete Start-to-Finish Admissions Guide, filled with advice for every step of the application process as well as multiple sample essays. And many of our publications are free for our package clients. Our point? We offer an unparalleled library of resources to give you an advantage in the competitive world of MBA admissions.
In addition to having helped literally thousands of candidates gain admission to their target schools and having forged relationships with representatives of the leading MBA programs, we benefit from the insider knowledge provided by our employees who have actually worked in business school admissions. Included among these is a former Stanford admissions staff member, a former Wharton admissions team member, a former Darden admissions interviewer and a former Columbia admissions interviewer, just to start.
