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.

    • I really enjoyed interacting with Ricardo Betti during the application process. It was crucial for me to better understand the differences between schools and to be more sure of the choice. In addition, as MBA Empresarial has a great history in the market, they put me in contact with alumni of the schools to be able to interact directly with them. Doing an MBA and the choosing of the school are two big decisions, it is worth talking to those who have experience on it, because of this I recommend MBA Empresarial.

    • The MBA Empresarial is the right consultancy for professionals seeking a first-rate MBA outside of Brazil. The application process is very different from that which is experienced with the local schools and makes the candidate immerse into himself/herself, exponentially increasing his/her degree of self-knowledge, and evaluate his/her past, present and future professional development process. Ricardo Betti can help candidates see their strengths and weaknesses, which schools fit into their personal and professional goals, and how an MBA abroad can bring a return.

    • When the bank where I worked offered me a sponsorship for a master's degree in administration abroad, Ricardo Betti was the one who prepared me. It helped me in studying, being accepted, and choosing the university. He is a brilliant professional, perhaps the most qualified person on this subject that can be found, not only in Brazil!
      Rodolfo Henrique Fischer, MBA MIT ‘90 Financial Markets Executive
    • 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!

    • 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.

    • MBA Empresarial was fundamental in my acceptance in to the MBA program at the University of California, Berkeley. It helped me identify the school profile that best suited my expectations, considering my score, work experience, and my long-term goals. MBA Empresarial also helped me define strategies and identify elements in my life history that would serve as a basis for addressing the matters of schools. When I think of MBA Empresarial, I think of a team that, besides having been key to my acceptance into 5 universities, played a very important role for my self-knowledge. The team taught me to have resilience and focus in a time of great pressure. I am very grateful to MBA Empresarial and all of its team.
