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!

    • 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.

    • The whole process of choosing an MBA and applying to a top school made it very clear to me the importance of having people who understand the subject, who pass on tranquility, guide, question, and participate in body and soul. The MBA team with Ricardo's baton was fantastic at this important stage of my life. The involvement is so relevant that we sweat together in preparation and celebrated together in the results. Thanks a lot, or in Wharton style, where I did my MBA, fantastic ROI !!!!

    • 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!
      Carolina Cardoso de Almeida, MBA INSEAD ‘16 Director of Operations at EF Education First, Lucerne, Switzerland
    • MBA Empresarial was part of 2 special moments in my career. The first one was the acceptance into MIT. When I arrived at MBA Empresarial, I had so many doubts about what to do and how to do that I did not know where to start ... Ricardo Betti, with his knowledge and guidance, was essential to get me on the right (and more efficient) path that resulted in acceptance - one of the moments I remember most fondly in my career! The other moment was the time I worked as an Associate in MBA Empresarial itself, in MBA Counseling. It was 2 years of great learning, and I especially remember the very friendly environment of the company, with people who are willing, with initiative, acting in a collaborative environment. Without a doubt an enriching period from a professional and personal point of view.

    • Ricardo Betti was instrumental in my MBA process and my wife's LLM process. In 2006 I entered the 2-year full-time MBA at the Kellogg School of Management (also having been accepted into 4 other top-10 schools) and in 2007 my wife was accepted into the Law School of Northwestern University. Ricardo helped us throughout the entire process, from the choice of the school ("Matching") to the preparation for the admissions process with the correct positioning of our experiences to maximize our chances in the top-schools. We strongly recommend the services of MBA Empresarial.
