Accepted.com’s updated ebook, The Consultant’s Guide to MBA Admission, guides applicants with a consulting background through the MBA admissions process by presenting the start to finish admissions journey of a hypothetical consultant applicant.
Standing out from the over-represented applicant group of consultants is no easy feat. Most of the consultant applicants who apply to top MBA programs have high stats, impressive work experience, strong communication skills, and an all-around extraordinary profile.
Accepted’s updated ebook, The Consultant’s Guide to MBA Admission, is ideal for consultants who are striving to create an application that highlights their unique qualifications and competitive edge. The new edition walks applicants through the admissions process as seen through the eyes of Scott, a fictional applicant, and his admissions advisor, Cindy Tokumitsu, Senior Editor at Accepted.com and co-author of the ebook. As Cindy advises Scott on topics such as school choice, essay topics, interview tips, and letters of recommendation.
“This ebook will make the MBA application process not only less overwhelming, but quite manageable, by giving you a bird’s-eye view of one individual’s application to his first-choice school,” explains Linda Abraham, Accepted.com founder and co-author of The Consultant’s Guide to MBA Admission. “As an invisible observer, you will see how this applicant, a consultant, makes decisions while working with Accepted.com Senior Editor Cindy Tokumitsu to develop his application strategy. Through their exchange, you will learn what questions to ask, when to ask them, and how to answer them. The profile of this character, Scott Murray, is a composite derived from actual clients with whom the authors have worked over many years. The profile represents a “typical” applicant: well qualified, but not possessing any obvious edge or clear advantage over his consultant peers.”
While the Consultant’s Guide starts with strategy, it proceeds to the application process itself. It provides guidance on writing the essays, preparing for MBA interviews and even coaching one’s recommenders. And it includes the essays Scott would have submitted to Harvard Business School if he were a real applicant.
The Consultant’s Guide to MBA Admission teaches applicants how to:
- Choose the best b-schools to match their goals.
- Distinguish themselves from other highly competitive consultants applying to top MBA programs.
- Compose persuasive application essays.
- Prepare for different styles of interviews and types of interview questions.
Consultants who would like a window into the complete application process should purchase The Consultant’s Guide to MBA Admission to distinguish themselves and increase their chances of acceptance at their top-choice business school.
