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.

  • Stellar Consultant
    1 week ago
    Jeremy is a superb consultant to have on your side - not only because of his brilliant editing and writing skills, but also because he actually cares for his clients and makes an effort to exceed expectations in any way he can. I was due to apply to five schools last year and couldn't apply to a single one due to personal issues. I asked MBA mission to extend my contract by a month and being the wonderful set of people that they are, they were happy to oblige. However, my consultant at the time had to go on an emergency sick leave and this was a bit of a bummer as I had already worked a fair bit with him and he already knew my story. Thankfully, ...

  • Best Decision I Ever Made!
    3 weeks ago
    When I met Jeremy over a year ago, I immediately knew his energy and inspiration was exactly what I needed to attack this application process. Jeremy helped me through multiple applications, interviews, and waitlists, and approached Version 22 of each essay with the same level of passion and commitment as he did on Day 1. Jeremy's wealth of knowledge, writing skills, and ability to tell a powerful story are unparalleled. He brings insight to every decision, no matter how big or small, every step of the way. Yet, what makes him the best (and in my opinion, the only) choice for a consultant is that he truly connects with each applicant he works with and is committed to their success. He is more than a ...

    I am really glad I worked with Jeremy, in a really short period and the deadline was approaching fast, and I was really anxious about the result of this journey, it was my dream program, one shot, that what I was aiming too. Jeremy’s ability to bring the best in people and make you aim higher is phenomenal, he is also very practical and does a great job to help you practice for what is required, I was surprised by the results that came in under really short time, Jeremy’s work was efficient, eye-opening and on point. Happy to know him as a person, and I would recommend him to any high aspiring prospected admits in top schools.

  • Jeremy Makes the MBA Admission Process Fun & Manageable
    2 months ago
    Jeremy knows exactly how to transform a candidate’s character traits/experiences/life story and articulate them in a way that is easily (and attractively) digestible for admissions offices. The MBA application process is a very expensive “black box” between tutors, consultants, applications, school visits, online programs, etc. The scariest part of which is that you never truly know that you are on the best possible path towards admissions at your target program. Jeremy takes the “black box” and lights it up for you. He is the most experienced person I have come across during my MBA application process by FAR, he knows the ins and outs of every school, is one of the best communicators that I have ever encountered and is very easy to work with. These skills ...

  • A Leader in His Field, and Also a Quality Human
    2 months ago
    My time with Jeremy unofficially began almost two years ago. I was considering applying to business school, and we connected for an initial conversation. Although I didn't end up applying that year, I recall being struck by his generosity of both time and energy, as he expressed his willingness to work with me on brainstorming my own life goals to determine whether business school was the right next step for me. Fast forward 18 months, and Jeremy and I began working on b-school applications. From the initial brainstorming session in September, up until this moment as I write this review on the first day of May, Jeremy has been an unwavering ally in the face of a challenging process and a particularly challenging application season. Our ...

  • Highly Recommended; Flexible & Thorough
    2 months ago
    Jeremy's expertise as a consultant, diligence as a writer/editor, and empathy as a friend/colleague are unmatched. Jeremy and I started working together over a year ago. Not only did his coaching and mentoring help result in my acceptance to my top choices, but it also helped me to understand my own motivations and perspective. Honestly, I underestimated the impact of the latter on my ability to derive purpose from my own experiences. I would strongly recommend Jeremy and his team to anyone looking to maximize the value of their degree before and after the admissions process.

  • Could Not Recommend More Highly!!
    3 months ago
    To start - Jeremey is incredibly knowledgeable about the entire MBA landscape and is the main reason I was accepted to my top school early action. For anyone that is serious about getting their MBA, they should engage Jeremey ASAP. Our engagement felt more like a peer/mentor helping me navigate a complex process. This is incredibly valuable when times are stressful, and you need suggestions on how best to proceed. I know we will remain in touch for many years. Jeremy is super easy to work with and was always available to answer any questions – big or small. From the very beginning, he spent significant time understanding what makes me who I am today. He has the gifted ability to ask the right questions ...

  • Best Consultant In The Business & Overall Amazing Person!
    3 months ago
    About one month before the application deadline, I found myself with a below-average GMAT, an unopened application, and a lot of questions about whether it was worth making a run for it. I spoke with a number of companies and consultants but was by far the most impressed with mbaMission. I had many friends that had worked with other companies and everyone seemed to have the most trust in and best results from the mbaMission process. As I thought about consultants, Jeremy came the most highly recommended. Jeremy is the best in the industry and my biggest concern was whether or not he’d be able to squeeze me in. His experience, his methods, and his approach are second to none. The thing about Jeremy is ...

  • Invaluable Wealth Of Knowledge
    3 months ago
    After attending one of Jeremy's free online events, I booked in a free consultation with him. One of the best decisions I've ever made. He was insightful, encouraging and most important of all honest. He gave me advice regarding strengthening my profile and tips on how to go into an interview well prepared. I've read his book on admissions at least twice and it has been an extremely reliable resource.

  • Great Help!
    3 months ago
    Once I got put on the waitlist, I immediately reached out to Jeremy. We went back and forth on how to better the waitlist video I had to make and quickly found a solution. Not only did he greatly improve my video, making it more personal and thoughtful, but also helped me escape the trap of overthinking things. Jeremy's experience and knowledge with these processes are invaluable resources for future applicants. I highly recommend Jeremy and mbaMission to anyone who's serious about getting their MBA.
