Our philosophy

At Inner Circle MBA our core philosophy is that admission to a top tier MBA programme revolves around two things: what’s in it for you, and what’s in it for them.

With this fundamental principle of shared success we help you build your business school application in a way that maximises your success, both in gaining admission to your programmes of choice and in starting your business school journey in the right direction for your career goals.

Our process

How do we get to a clear view of success?  We believe that your application is your chance to share your story.  We start with a psychometric test, discuss the outcomes, and put this at the centre of your story.  We assess your career goals based on your test results and education and career history, and select which business schools you should apply to based on that.

These end goals are then central to your application story which answers the first two questions all Admissions Committees ask: what do you bring to the school while you’re there, and what will you bring to the school when you’re done?

Your outcome

We’ll help you get to know yourself better so that you can then share your story with the schools you choose to apply to.  Then we’ll hone your skills through workshops on CV/resume building, application strategy, storytelling and essay writing, and interview skills.

If you choose to you can also work with us on scholarship applications or securing company sponsorship.  No matter which package you choose we always end with making sure your first few steps on your MBA journey are in the right direction.

We share the belief of top tier Admissions Committees that the application stage is the beginning of your journey with your chosen school.  That journey can go by pretty quickly.  We’ll make sure you don’t get lost along the way.
