Why Choose Accepted for MBA Application Consulting?

We know that applying to business school is a daunting process. With acceptance rates at top schools hovering around 10%, it is easy to be overwhelmed. That’s where Accepted comes in. We can help you get accepted to traditional MBA, PT MBA, or EMBA programs, and we have the facts to prove it.

  • At most top schools, our clients are accepted at rates 50% or more above the school's overall acceptance rate.
  • Over 80% of our MBA consultants are former admissions directors or worked in admissions-related positions in top colleges and universities around the world, including Columbia, Cornell Johnson, Kellogg, London Business School, Michigan Ross, UNC Kenan-Flagler, Wharton, and Yale.
  • Our MBA consulting experts have well over 100 years of collective experience in MBA admissions.
  • English not your native language? Our business school experts speak 5 languages other than English – Chinese, French, Hebrew, Japanese, and Spanish.

Why Choose Our MBA Application Experts?

Experience, Approach, and Focus.

Experience: Accepted’s mba consulting staff collectively has over a century of MBA admissions experience, and we are more than happy to share our insight with you. However, credentials and experience are necessary, but insufficient for Accepted’s clients. They get more.  

Approach: You want to apply confidently and successfully. To do so you need someone at your side dedicated to giving you the guidance, support and constructive criticism so you can present yourself at your best. That’s our objective, too. Your MBA application consultant will be as determined as you are to help your realize your dreams and goals as he or she mentors you to acceptance.

Focus: At Accepted, you work consistently with one MBA admissions professional, who becomes an expert in your story. Your consultant is devoted to helping you present that story compellingly and effectively. You will not be shunted between one consultant who does strategy and another who does editing and another who does something else as if your MBA application is a commodity on an assembly line. It is crucial that the MBA admissions committee at your dream schools meet you through your MBA application as a unique human being, not an assembly line outcome.

Don't Submit a Mediocre (or Worse) Application

To get into your top-choice business schools, having an application that shines is vital. Our MBA application consultants can help you create the well-written, cohesive, and impressive application that will catch the eye of the business school admissions committee.
