Our Editors

Uniquely among MBA admissions consultancies worldwide, our editorial team is staffed exclusively with business-savvy professional journalists. We strongly believe that only professional journalists, by virtue of their training in audience-focused, engaging writing, offer the editorial skill set perfectly suited to the specialised writing tasks involved in applying to business school. Journalists are specially trained to be able to craft a compelling “human interest” story — which, if you think about it, is what your essays really are!

Frankly, it’s easier to train a journalist to understand the Admission Committee audience — after all, writing to an audience is what journalists are trained to do — than it is to instill professional interviewing and writing skills in even a top MBA graduate.
