Consultant Bio

Prior to founding mbaMission, Jeremy Shinewald was the sole speechwriter for the Ambassador of Israel to the United States, for whom he wrote more than 70 policy addresses. As his speeches were being published in the Washington Post, Washington Times and other major international media outlets, Jeremy was also laying the foundation for mbaMission, helping a small number of applicants gain acceptance to top-tier MBA programs each year. Jeremy was admitted to several top domestic and international MBA programs himself and ultimately became one of the youngest members of his class at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, where he was an admissions interviewer, wrote a Business Ethics case and a Small Business Acquisitions case and was chosen by his peers to be Class Graduation Speaker.

After graduation, Jeremy formally established mbaMission and has subsequently provided admissions consulting services to applicants from the United States and more than 30 other countries on six continents. Jeremy is a past member of the Board of Directors of the Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants (AIGAC), an organization committed to upholding the highest standards of ethical practices in MBA advisory services, and was the co-chair of the 2009 AIGAC Conference at Columbia Business School.

P&Q Consultant Reviews

  • Story Master
    5 hours ago
    A few years ago, I chose another consultant over mbaMission and didn't get anywhere. Last year, by overwhelming recommendation, I decided to work with Jeremy on my EMBA application. At the time, I had my doubts because being a business owner myself, I wasn't sure if two Type A personality working together was a good idea. Those doubts quickly faded away when the work started. J always scheduled calls with me that accommodated my ever changing time zone and during each call, he not only listened but also extracted the essence of my stories which helped the application writing process tremendously. I'm full of stories but I am possibly the worst person alive at telling my own stories. After countless calls and email exchanges, J ...

  • Simply The Best

    Jeremy is truly world class and without doubt a game changer in the world of MBA admissions consulting. He helped me think through my early brainstorms for my application to Stanford GSB, the only school I applied to, and I give him tremendous credit for helping me gain admission by telling my story the most authentic way possible. I would strongly advise you work with Jeremy.

  • Jeremy Shinewald
    3 days ago
    I give my highest possible recommendation to Jeremy Shinewald of mbaMission. Jeremy has deep, well-researched insights on every business school I had expressed interest in exploring. His institutional knowledge of every program served as an invaluable sounding-board as I honed my list of schools that I applied to. Jeremy is also undoubtedly a genius marketer. After performing his procedural forensic of my work and personal experiences, he helped identify my meaningful experiences that were particularly important to highlight in my applications. He not only enabled me to craft my personal story in well-thought-out manner, but he also helped me create a more profound and intellectually stimulating essay. His experience as a senior speech writer for politicians was also a tremendous benefit, as he helped me ...

  • Skill, Hustle, & Integrity
    4 days ago
    For many years, enthusiastically and without reservation, I’ve sent every GMAT student of mine to one place—mbaMission. Why are Manhattan Prep (where I teach GMAT) and mbaMission partnered? I remember when we had a small recommended list of admissions consultants, and all of them were/are very good. But Jeremy stood out then, and he clearly stands out now. He is as rigorous and uncompromising as we are about the people he hires (a minuscule fraction of all applicants) and about how he trains them (a lengthy initial onboarding with numerous gates and a never-ending “you can always get better” process, including periodic face-to-face intensives even for veterans—I’ve come to annual trainings of his, and they’re hard core). Jeremy absolutely knows what he’s doing. He busts ...

  • Valuable & Trustworthy
    1 week ago
    Years ago, Manhattan Prep chose to form an exclusive relationship with mbaMission and the reasons we made that decision stand to this day: mbaMission has the same values as Manhattan Prep. Jeremy is extremely picky about who gets to join his team of consultants, and they provide top-notch service to their clients. The fact that they not only offer free consultations but in fact ask every client to do one is telling. Without hesitation we send our students to mbaMission and we rely on that team to keep our instructors informed about trends in applications.

  • It Doesn’t Get Better Than Jeremy!
    2 weeks ago
    Jeremy Shinewald is an absolute game changer for anyone aspiring to get an MBA from a top school. Jeremy's time is split between his many clients and running (in my opinion) the best admissions consultation company out there. But if no one had told me that, I would have thought I was his only responsibility. His attention to detail is unlike anything I’ve seen, and he will cut to the core of what makes you an interesting person and a strong candidate. He will help you sort through your experiences, and will not only help you identify the key points that will make you stand out to the admissions committee, he will help you create an application that does them justice. Beyond that, he will ...

  • Incredibly Insightful Experience (Ding Review)
    3 weeks ago
    After not getting into my top schools, I worked with Jeremy on a 'ding review' where he looked over my application and walked me through how I could've improved it. Having worked with other consultants before, I found this experience to be by far the most insightful conversation I've had in regards to my application. I'm left kicking myself at not having used Jeremy before but I will certainly do so as I continue to pursue an MBA path. What sets Jeremy apart is his knack for finding the human element behind the application and painting a picture so that human element shines its brightest.

  • Excellent Service For Achieving Your MBA Dream

    mbaMission was incredibly helpful in guiding my through the MBA application. Education in an investment and mbaMission was part of that investment; it was well worth it. The GMAT and MBA application process can be overwhelming but I received personalized feedback from very qualified consultants. The individualized support helped me focus my attention in the right direction and highlight my strengths to achieve my ultimate goal—acceptance into one of the top MBA programs in Canada—MBA, Class of 2018!

  • Forever Grateful For Jeremy!!
    3 weeks ago
    I cannot even begin to express my gratitude for Jeremy and the whole mbaMission team. Jeremy was so EXTREMELY helpful in guiding me through my graduate school application process and was so reassuring that I would hit my deadlines. He instilled confidence in my writing ability and helped me produce my strongest work while also being my biggest supporter. I truly could not have applied without his expertise, insight and judgment. Jeremy not only helped me narrate my personal story and experiences, but also portray my strengths and skillset. He had incredible insight and guidance when structuring my thoughts in the most concise, creative, professional and affluent manner. Additionally, he was especially responsive and accommodating to my schedule and learning needs. Jeremy is a genuine, ...
