What we offer:

MBA Application Counselors
Make Jesse & M your MBA application secret weapons!

MBA Profile Development: In our view, this is the most important part of the entire MBA application process. Why? If the story you decide to tell, the personal brand you wish to present is weak, it will negatively impact your entire application.  Once we’ve agreed on the personal brand you’re going to sell, we let it guide the rest of your application.


TOEFL and IELTS test score improvement:  We have been helping students raise their test scores, often dramatically, for over 10 years.  Our program is tailored to fit your specific needs and learning style.  Find more detailed information about how we’ll help you increase your test scores on our TOEFL & IELTS training page.

MBA essay editing Working with you as a team, we will refine, strengthen, and deliver your story in a clear, concise, and powerful essay. Every word counts and each school is different, together we’ll ensure that your essays are on target and exceptional.  Read more about our first-rate services on our MBA essay editing services page.

CV / Resume Consultation and Editing: Making a great first impression when applying for the MBA program(s) of your choice is crucial, and since your CV serves that function, it must be airtight and action-packed. It provides the context through which your essays will be read and it lays the foundation for the questions you will be asked in your interview(s). MBA CVs are different from traditional resumes, they focus less on your responsibilities and more on your leadership, teamwork, and international experience, with an emphasis on impact.  Read more about our CV / Resume Consultation and Editing services.

MBA Interview preparation:  We will help you to present yourself, your accomplishments and goals in a positive light; to expertly convey what you have to offer, and to express how valuable their MBA program will be for your professional and personal development. Learn about how we can work together on our Intensive MBA Interview Practice page.

Comprehensive package:  Includes all of the above, plus assistance in choosing your schools, planning school visits, video preparation, introductions to our clients who are currently attending MBA programs or have recently graduated, and, possibly most importantly, emotional support.  This is a long, and at times, very stressful journey.  We will be there with you every step of the way to offer technical support, but also to keep you energized and confident.

Jesse - MBA admissions consultant

Before concentrating on helping his clients achieve their ultimate MBA acceptance goals, Jesse worked in various rewarding and enriching positions teaching English as a foreign language: he taught at one of Thailand’s most prestigious universities, managed a private language school, and developed and led corporate English training programs with Addisorn, Hess, and Chevron. Before leaving New York City, he founded an arts nonprofit that organized and operated the first citywide open studios program. During his senior year of university, he founded a promotional products firm that became the first in the US to have an interactive e-commerce website, which won Fortune 500 clients from much larger competitors. Jesse holds a B.A. from Bard College at Simon’s Rock, a well-renowned American university that admits students before they finish high school.

M is an MBA admissions consultant

Previous to focusing on helping her clients gain admittance to their MBA dream school, M taught English as a foreign language, also known as TEFL or ESL (English as a second language) to professionals for 10+ years. M has helped students secure employment and advance their careers in international corporations such as Microsoft, Oracle, Coke, Hess, Chevron, Yandex, Sberbank, and many more. Working closely with her clients, she develops individual programs for each person, often including intensive interview practice, grammar and vocabulary enhancement activities, and comprehension improvement. During this time, she also assisted learners in greatly increasing their TOEFL or IELTS scores and getting accepted into the post-graduate program of their choice. M earned her CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) degree from Cambridge University in 2010. Before then, she accumulated a wide variety of writing and editing experience, including creating original copy & editing colleagues’ work for the United States Information Agency (USIA), in Washington D.C. and developing ad copy for small business servicing corporations such as Walmart, Land O’ Lakes, MCI, and more. She holds a B.A. from Bard College at Simon’s Rock, a prestigious American university that accepts students before they complete high school.

We will never share your information.


Connecting Globally, Succeeding Universally: With over a decade of experience in international markets, we help diverse clients achieve MBA success.

Both of us began our counseling journey outside of the US market, accumulating more than 10 years of experience each in the Asian market, including over 5 years of specialization in the Japanese market. This has provided us with a deep understanding of the unique challenges encountered by non-native non-Western MBA applicants. Our client base has since expanded, encompassing individuals from diverse countries and cultures. We recognize the importance of striking the ideal balance between presenting an authentic representation of you while fulfilling the expectations of top MBA programs.

How we are different:

Having two of us on your team means that you get twice as much experience and assistance. After analyzing and discussing the information you provide to us, we dig deeper, asking you further questions.  We don’t just react to your material; we proactively guide and build your optimum MBA persona. Almost everyone overlooks a key part of their story (sometimes because it seems commonplace to them) but we discover this jewel and bring it to the forefront. Often it is very difficult for people to frame their own stories and impressive work can be unintentionally excluded; we guard against this oversight.

Top MBA School Graduation
Get accepted to the MBA program of your choice.

All MBA coaches have a checklist of services they offer.  However, it’s often the interconnected nature of these distinct activities that go unleveraged, and opportunities are squandered.  Each component of the process should be carefully considered and used to your advantage.  We truly care and we prove it time and time again with quantifiable results.

Who we are:

We are a happily married couple that met and fell in love at university in 1990, at 15 and 16 years old (we earned admission two years before the standard age). Since then we have often worked together while living around the world.  We’ve resided in New York City, Mexico, Thailand, Spain, Italy, Tunisia, Albania, Macedonia, and Russia and have traveled to many other fascinating countries. Due to our adventurous lifestyle, our consultations are via Skype.  However, if we happen to be in the same city at the same time, we would be delighted to meet in person.

Experts in the field of MBA application services
Work with experts in the field of MBA application services.

Jesse began his journey into the world of the MBA application process as a test specialist.  As he got to know his students, he discovered that many used different consultants that weren’t communicating with one another.  Even after essays and resumes had been reviewed and approved by these professionals, he was disappointed to see key information missing and grammatical errors. He began offering essay and resume consultation and interview practice in order to ensure that the people he worked with had the best possible chance of acceptance. He brought in his wife, M, to add another dimension to test and interview preparation and to specialize in MBA essay consultation and editing.

Working as a team, we consult about each client, even if they are only working with one of us.  Jesse has more experience overseeing the entire MBA application process and M has more writing and editing expertise.  Both have worked extensively in test and interview preparation and preparing clients for specific professional tasks such as presentations, board of director meetings, and negotiations.
