Story Of mymbacreck.com

Our Mission
MyMBACircle was founded on the belief that neither your finances nor personal network should limit your access to the insights and knowledge that can help you gain acceptance to top universities. We’re on a mission to democratize admissions support to the world’s most coveted business schools and make the process more transparent than it is today through honest & bite-sized mentoring.

 

Why Us
We realized that for majority of the business schools students, the MBA application process is one of the most daunting times in their lives. Meaningful access to students and alumni from top colleges is limited, admission consultants charge thousands of dollars without adequate proof of track record and it is nerve-wracking to prepare multiple applications. Through MyMBACircle, we created a network of committed mentors of second-year students and alumni on top of their chosen industries that wanted to pay it forward in an honest way to those aspiring to get into top B-schools. We designed bite-size coaching and customized prep materials that provides the same edge as top admission consultants.
