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.

    • Ricardo helped me a lot when I was applying for my MBA in 1990. His knowledge of the process and the important points to be emphasized, as well as the indication of the best available service providers, was very important to the success of my application. He is undoubtedly the main reference in career coaching geared towards those who want to do a master's degree abroad. I have been recommending his work to friends and the feedback has always been very positive.

    • 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.

    • 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!

    • Doing an MBA in a school that is among the TOP 10 was something that came in a turbulent way into my plans, as I had little time to do everything. MBA Empresarial, with professionals and partners of high level who, besides the competence, work with their heart in their mission, helped me a lot in the organization, prioritization and execution of the preparation to apply. The Business MBA Empresarial efficiently catalyzed from the choosing of the right school for me, up to what I should focus on more on each stage of the preparation. As a result of this work with them, I chose and got into Kellogg, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made.

    • I will always be very grateful to the business MBA, and especially to Professor Ricardo Betti, for the extraordinary work done during my candidatures to the best business schools in the world. I remember that in my first conversation with Ricardo it was clear the great challenge that we would have ahead of us. I practically did not speak any English, did not have an immaculate school record, and already had more professional experience than was recommended by the schools themselves. MBA Empresarial accepted the challenge and the outcome of the program developed by them could not have been better. At the end of the preparation I attained 720 points in the GMAT and an offer from the London Business School, among others.

    • MBA Empresarial/Ricardo Betti was fundamental in the process of guiding the best way to translate my experience to the demands/questions of each school’s essays. In addition, the support in choosing which programs best fit my profile and the strategy of applying on the first deadlines were fundamental to my acceptance into the MBA at Harvard.
