Admissions Consulting

    With more than 25 years of experience, the MBA Counseling area aims to guide professionals who wish to pursue an MBA abroad (or other programs, such as LLM, undergrad, etc.). The orientation goes through all stages of the application process: from choosing the program suited to your needs, to preparing for the admissions process for the world’s most competitive business schools, such as Harvard, MIT, and Stanford, among others. Almost 2,000 clients have already been served, with a 92% approval rate and more than 3,000 attained admissions, out of which 76% lie in the top 15 business schools in the USA, and the top 3 in Europe. The guidance on the strategies and the preparation of applications is personalized and individual. In order to offer a full-service solution to our customers, MBA Empresarial has teamed up with Philadelphia Consulting, JCaro and The MBA Wire, and internationally with Veritas Prep, a global leader in online preparation for the GMAT. From this strategic alliance MBA Talent was born, which brings together some of the most experienced admissions consulting professionals in Latin America: Ricardo Betti, Maurício Betti, Júlio Caro, Paulo César Oliveira, Neusa Oliveira and Mateo Chang. In addition, MBA Recruitment and Selection services are also offered to companies that wish to fill their positions with highly qualified professionals, thus closing the professional development cycle of our clients: from preparing for the MBA to accessing the job market.

    • The MBA was a transformative experience: I had the opportunity to study in one of the best business schools in the world, to learn important tools for executive life, and to meet incredible people with diverse backgrounds and nationalities. This experience was only possible thanks to the support received from MBA Empresarial. From the decision to apply to the conversations that explored my life history, I had full support, especially from Ricardo Betti, who directed me through an interesting path of self-knowledge, extracting my best in the application. I had the great pleasure of being accepted into 6 internationally renowned schools and I counted on the support of Ricardo for the choice of the school that would best fit my profile, as well as orientations to make the most of my course. Today I have a degree from Columbia and I feel completely accomplished professionally! Thank you Ricardo and the MBA Empresarial Team for the immense help during one of the most important and enjoyable journeys of my life!

    • MBA Empresarial helped me a lot in the application process for my MBA. The role of counseling was fundamental so that I could know how to best expose my strengths and discover my differentials in things I would not have seen by myself. The role of the MBA was fundamental in my admission and they have always been there for me even after we have finished this process. I felt in them the perfect balance between professionalism and at the same time the proximity necessary to assist me in this.

    • I am a graduate of Stern-NYU's 2003 class. I met Ricardo Betti and MBA Empresarial when preparing my applications for universities and MBA courses. Ricardo - with his tireless patience and valuable opinions - was of fundamental importance to my application process and in my choice regarding which MBA to attend. Today I am a Director of a multinational company, a market leader and reference in our segment. Much of the success of my career and the professional that I am today is due to my MBA - and consequently to the work done with Betti. I'm certain that he and his company are some of the best - if not the best! - choices in this arduous process. Good luck!

    • Those who have studied at one of the best universities and business schools in the world have surely heard several times: "those were the best two years of my life" or "one of my MBA colleagues was appointed CEO"! Because of this I'm not surprised with the fact that my best friends have studied with me at Wharton and that Sundar Pichai, Wharton Grad 2002, has been named CEO of Google. Whether from personal experience or professional perspective, one of the critical factors to be accepted into a top school is self-knowledge to know "what matters most to you, and why?" (Classic Stanford question)! And it was precisely in this aspect that MBA Empresarial made all the difference for me. Ricardo Betti, the best MBA coach in my opinion, made me know myself more as a human being, be proud of my achievements, and know what made me the most difference as a candidate. Coaching is not telling you what you should write in applications, but rather, asking the questions and reflections that lead the candidate to make the decisions and the most appropriate choices. I was very happy and proud when I saw that Ricardo wrote a chapter in the book "Vale a Pena" telling my story. I have no doubt that this story would have been different had it not been for MBA Empresarial. After years of financial market experience with treasury, asset management, investor relations and equity research, I am currently working with HR talent from a large bank, and my tip for anyone who wants to pursue their MBA in one of the world's top business schools is to count on the support of MBA Empresarial!

    • MBA Empresarial counseling changed my life. We all have many success stories to tell. But which ones do we tell to the school of your dreams? And how do we tell it? This is a journey, above all, of introspection, and having a mentor to guide you makes a huge difference. The sessions at MBA helped me realize a dream that opened doors so that I could accomplish others.

    • When my wife and I decided to apply together for an MBA course in the United States we focused on the best schools and therefore went after the best person to assist us in the process. From the first meeting Ricardo sought to know in detail our profile, along with what we were sought for our career after the MBA. By knowing in detail the best schools in the world, Ricardo gave us some options that fit perfectly in our profile. From there he was able to extract details about our careers and personal life that enriched our application and helped us get accepted into several schools. Among the various options we decided to go to Tuck and could not have made a better choice. Ricardo was and continues to be a great contributor to the successes we had in our career.
