MBA Coaching Process

The STRONG Education’s personalized coaching support and comprehensive methodology lets you effectively manage all aspects of the application:

Due diligence: The importance of the discovery process is often underestimated. Yet by taking time to explore your background, we strengthen the coaching relationship, uncover facts, and find themes that create a solid foundation from which to fly.

Strategy Positioning: Crafting an intriguing application with structure, balance, and style begins with a compelling, fact-based story and vision that differentiate you. This is where our profound experience and creativity truly pay off for our champions.

Essays: Once we have a compelling message, we help you create exceptional essays 100% inspired by your real life facts to effectively convey well-thought out objectives, important personality traits, and your unique history.

Recommendation Letters: Consider the recommendations not a requirement but an opportunity. By strategically planning your recommenders and their intervention, we support and powerfully enhance your application.

Interview: Your application was great, and now it’s time to shine in person. The STRONG MBA’s innovative yet simple techniques and performance coaching have proven remarkably effective in helping you close the deal during the interview.

MBA Coaching Values

Your success in getting accepted to top schools defines our mission. Put simply, we can only be successful in this mission if our clients are successful in reaching their objectives. The STRONG Education coaching approach is guided by powerful values that have been crystallized and proven through many years of experience and many successful client cases:

Champions don’t have to be superheroes.

Looking at typical MBA profiles and the sheer number of capable people applying, candidates can get discouraged: “There’s nothing special about me. I’m just an ordinary manager (or consultant, engineer, analyst, entrepreneur, etc.)”. In effect, there are many other people applying. But there is only one you. We help future champions discern their particular talent, professional development, and vision that will uniquely contribute to the MBA course.

Set realistic goals and achieve ambitious objectives.

If a potential client’s chances are slim due to inadequate GMAT score or professional experience, we know that honesty pays off for everyone in the long-run. However having helped clients enter top schools with less than optimum scores or histories, we know how to look for potential. So if we feel you can make it despite certain weaknesses – and we are usually right about such things – we commit fully to your case and push you to the championship level.

Get short-term results with long-term benefits.

The STRONG MBA’s immediate imperative and measure of success is getting you into the MBA programs you want to attend. At the same time, because we use powerful coaching methodology inspired by executive career development, clients point to more profound benefits. Many of the competencies you gain will remain and move with you for life. We see you as a potential leader and train you like one.
