MBA Application Counseling

For working professionals who are applying to top MBA programs, Maplewood provides MBA Application Counseling services to enhance their chance of acceptance by customizing strategies and tactics to differentiate their candidacies from competitors.

MBA Application Counseling is specially designed for those who have gained a solid career background in preparation for top MBA programs. Appropriate preparation would include a few years of professional working experience after college, preferably with management responsibilities.

Why work with an admissions consultant?

The most difficult aspect of earning a top MBA degree could be getting accepted to the school of your choice. At top-ranked MBA schools, the admission rate for candidates with the right credentials and confidence to apply can be less than 20%, and often as low as 10% or 15%.

Maplewood consultants are knowledgeable about the key selection criteria of top B-school admissions committees: academic ability, personal character, management potential and professional goals. We are also aware of how schools weigh these criteria relative to other admissions factors and priorities such as diversity, which can change from time to time and from one school to another.

Maplewood consultants provide updated information and inside-track analysis as to what admissions decision makers would expect from applicants. Our clients - many of whom have a full-time job, family and busy social life - find our services professional, ethical, accessible, and results-driven.

If you desire the intellectual, emotional and economic benefits of a top-quality, full-time MBA education in the USA or Europe, we can help you get into the best possible business school of your choice!
