An MBA requires significant planning and effort. Each business school hasa distinct ethos with different application requirements and deadlines. The competition for admissions to leading, global MBA programs is intense. It is particularly difficult for international MBA applicants, whose educational and cultural frame of reference is so different to the institutions they apply to.
Our consultants will work with you every step of the way to offer customized inputs on your MBA applications, helping you gain a better understanding of what the process entails, culture of different business schools and what they look for in a candidate and programs characteristics. Every applicant has a story to tell and we help you dig deep to draw out those stories that will become the foundation of your application.
