What Makes MBA Prep School Different
A few years ago, a handful of clever tips and some light application polishing may have been sufficient to give MBA hopefuls an edge over less-prepared applicants. Today’s MBA application landscape is far more competitive! Take a moment to understand what MBA Prep School does differently than the MBA Application Consulting firms:
|MBA Prep School||vs.||Application Consulting Firms|
|A Dedicated Coach|
Your coach will be your trusted advisor throughout your application campaign. He/she is laser-focused on identifying and unlocking your full potential as a candidate for the top business schools.
|vs.||Consulting by Committee
You are handed off to a committee of consultants who don’t spend time getting to know you and have little personal stake in your admissions success.
|Personal Branding and Application Strategy|
Projects begin with our proprietary strengths discovery and application strategy exercises to shape the key themes and building blocks for all of your MBA applications.
|vs.||Execution Without Strategy
After a cursory review of your resume and (perhaps) a questionnaire, a consultant pushes you to begin drafting your application materials and essays.
|Essay Strategy and Storytelling|
You and your coach identify key themes and big-picture messages to develop your most compelling stories and essay topics. Your essays capture your voice, tell your story, and represent an authentic, impressive picture of you.
You email drafts of your essays and your consultant responds -- days later -- with cursory notes or a marked-up document.
|Collaboration & Co-Creation|
Your coach reveals the principles at work in creating your best applications so that you can work collaboratively, not just blindly follow directions.
|vs.||Criticism & Dictation
A consultant critiques components of your application in isolation and dictates quick fixes.
|Career Visioning & Career Planning|
Your coach helps you discover your career purpose and dream job, setting you on course towards a more fulfilling and rewarding career.
|vs.||Career Goals Essay Editing
You are expected to start the project with your career goals already figured out.
|Proactive Project Management|
Your coach provides you with a clearly designed work plan with weekly goals and project milestones and then manages the project to assure you stay on pace.
|vs.||You Are the Project Manager
You have to drive the pace of your work with your consultant and manage the project’s timeline.
|Interactive Coaching Sessions|
Interactive phone or video conferencing sessions provide an opportunity to workshop issues and develop creative solutions with your coach.
90%+ of communication with your consultant is via email.
Your investment in our services is based upon the number of schools in your package.
