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.

    • MBA Empresarial was with me from beginning to end in the long admission process for the MBA and MPA programs. With them there is no magic formula. The work is "tailor-made". I'm very grateful to Ricardo Betti. He was a true coach from start to finish. As a matter of fact, he continues to be my great mentor!

    • 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.

    • Ricardo Betti is an ace. With a lot of experience and articulation, he and the MBA team extract the best from each one, taking the MBA candidates to another dimension in their preparation, through a productive program of great reflection and exceptional results. Highly recommend to all.

    • Fifteen years ago, when I made the decision to do an MBA abroad, I understood the extent and impact that this decision would have on my professional life. In that way, I knew that I needed to enter a first-rate school and I looked for the best professionals to support me in this project. The first name that was recommended to me was that of Ricardo Betti, and today, looking back, I recognize how important this work was for the success of this challenge. As an entrepreneur and dental surgeon, my profile had particularities that could be an advantage or a disadvantage, depending on how this background difference was presented. At this point, Ricardo's experience and competence placed this difference under the right prism, which was definitely decisive for the outcome of this endeavor. I am sure that Ricardo and MBA Empresarial can also contribute in a decisive manner to the candidates for the best business schools, just as it was for me.

    • My Masters abroad experience was fantastic. I believe that I have had a very significant evolution both in the academic and in the personal sense. The challenges I faced in the two years in Chicago have strengthened me, but have also shown me the importance of respecting different cultures and ideas. However, none of this would have been possible without the work of Ricardo Betti. I was very raw when I received the invitation from Itaú to do the MBA abroad. I would not have been accepted by American and European universities, had it not been for Ricardo with his careful training and his precise directions of step-by-step recruitment processes.

    • A MBA Empresarial foi fundamental para todo o processo de decisão e preparação para meu MBA no INSEAD. O processo foi quase como o primeiro período de autoconhecimento do MBA, essencial para “career changers” como eu, onde repensei minhas experiências, defini prioridades e juntos conseguimos garantir os próximos passos necessários! Não sei como agradecer todo o apoio recebido, recomendo a todos buscando cursar um MBA de ponta!
