M074 | MBA Consultant

Job Description


Join a startup that has grown 10x in the past 1 year. If you are a problem-solver with a growth mindset, entrepreneurial, adventurous, and absolutely love facing challenges and devising strategies to tackle them, then this is the job for you.

MBA & Beyond is a global admission consulting startup for applicants who dare to question their purpose with a global MBA. We help purpose-driven applicants make it to the top business schools.

We are here to disrupt the Admissions Consulting space that has been working traditionally for decades.

Position Description

MBA Consultants work directly with MBA & Beyond’s clients to guide them through the MBA admissions process, either “from start to finish” as part of our all-in package services, on an hourly basis, or in the form of targeted pre-application services, including mock interview sessions and reviews of unsuccessful previous applications. In addition, consultants engage as a team during weekly staff calls, help us in product development, and contribute to projects that help develop and grow the company’s business.

The​ ​role

As an MBA admissions consultant, you’ll work with applicants to top MBA programs. You must be:

- A​ ​sensitive​ ​listener​ who can help applicants to develop their personal stories. You already know that schools don’t just want to see a resume and a pile of grades and test scores. They want to understand the person behind them, and successful essays often cover deeply personal topics, such as ethnic identity, family history, or personal failures and weaknesses. An MBA admissions consultant must win the trust of applicants to be successful in this area.
- A​ ​great​ ​editor​ to help applicants with the essays and recommendations involved.
- A​ ​mentor​ who can help young professionals to plan the right career path and present themselves to others effectively, with a special focus on typical pre- and post-MBA fields, such as consulting, strategy, finance, and technology.
- An​ ​expert​ — or budding expert — on top MBA programs, the MBA application process, and the experience of being an MBA student. Having an MBA may help, but is not required and does not, in itself, qualify you for the role.
- You’ll work with MBA applicants whom we have pre-screened for being coachable and realistic. We want applicants who will listen to your advice, and who are likely to succeed after implementing it. You can expect to build deep relationships with your candidates and to be showered in gratitude after helping them to achieve their goals.
