mbaMission celebrated its fifth annual consultant conference this past weekend in New York City, flying in the entire staff from around the world for two days of intense discussions about best practices and superior client engagement techniques. We are the only MBA admissions consulting firm in the industry to host such a conference and to invest so heavily in developing a skilled, cohesive, full-time team. We hire consultants for whom MBA consulting is more than simply a job or a part-time gig—it is a professional calling. For this reason, we feel that regularly convening to share our collective expertise and find ways to grow together to best serve our clients is an important part of our business.
Highlights from this year’s conference included a number of insightful presentations and teach-ins from various members of our consultant team, such as a mock client (essay topic) brainstorming exercise, a “Think Like the AdCom” business school application review, a deep dive into the implications of an increasingly prominent GRE (with our friends from Manhattan GRE), a best practices session focusing on recommendations and a session devoted to helping candidates define their career strategies. Through these events, we affirm our commitment each year to providing superior MBA admissions guidance, led by the highest-caliber team of dedicated professionals.
