The Presentation Only Elite MBA Applicants See

Jana Blanchette, founder of Inside MBA Admissions

Every year, many of the most elite companies bring into their offices B-school admission officials and MBA admission consultants to give their two-year analysts the skinny on the MBA admissions game. These insider seminars are a common perk at McKinsey & Co., Boston Consulting Group, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and other organizations that pretty much require the MBA degree for advancement.

Jana Blanchette, founder and president of Inside MBA Admissions, has traveled around the country, giving two-hour-long presentations to top-tier consulting firms and Ivy League alumni groups. The sessions cover what happens after a person hits the submit button on his or her application, bringing you inside an admissions office to show how Adcom staffers evaluate applications.

Blanchette should know. In 2007 and 2008, she was a senior director in the admissions office for the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. While at Ross, Blanchette benchmarked the application processes and admissions criteria at other top business schools so the system at Ross could be reengineered. Then, in 2008, she left Ross to launch Inside MBA Admissions, an admissions consulting firm.

FREE UPCOMING WEBINARS FOR POTENTIAL MBA APPLICANTS

Blanchette received her MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management. After graduating from Kellogg in 1999, she worked as a management consultant for A.T. Kearney and later became a principal with the firm.

Readers can attend a one of several free webinars on “Understanding How MBA Applications are Evaluated” by Blanchette. They will be held on July 30, Aug. 7, and Aug 30. You can register here.
