Booth School of Business at University of Chicago
Senior MBA Consultant
New York, New York
Kirill is a picture-perfect professional… so much so that he even made a guest appearance on a local version of “The Apprentice” to brief the contestants on a business task.
A veteran product manager based in New York, Kirill leads teams of engineers to build enterprise software. As much as he enjoys spending weekends with his friends in the city, if it’s winter time you’ll often find him hitting the slopes somewhere in Colorado!
During his first years out of college, Kirill explored a variety of roles: product marketing at a large cellular operator, digital advertising at Sony Pictures, and management consulting at Accenture. While getting his MBA at Chicago Booth, Kirill became interested in financial services, which led him to accept an offer from Credit Suisse and move to Zurich. He later returned to Chicago and started working on his technology start-up, reviving a talent marketplace idea which he and his partner once pitched in a business school competition.
Since then, Kirill has been pursuing a career in product management. He truly loves working with software engineers to solve complex problems for business. Kirill admits it took him a few years of soul-searching to discover his career passion, and his advice to people in their 20s is to try different paths: “You’ll be crippled by second-guessing if you don’t!” Alongside this career exploration, Kirill somehow managed to travel to almost 40 countries.
Kirill is well known among his friends and coworkers as the go-to person for mentorship and career counseling. He offers his expertise in MBA admissions and 10+ years in the technology industry, helping Admissionado clients prepare for the careers they always dreamed of!

Ecstatic! I got into my dream school (Kellogg with $$) and Kirill was a massive part of that. Approaching the process on my own, I didn’t have a good grasp of how I should frame myself as a candidate, what to actually highlight, or how to communicate my goals. Kirill helped with all these things. The strategy session was eye-opening and his quick responsiveness/openness to all of my questions was exceptionally reassuring. Kirill’s comments and questions on my essays were so insightful, I was sometimes blown away. He pushed me to go deeper, and I will forever be grateful. 5/5 stars. Thank you, Kirill!
Unbelievable. Beyond grateful that I have been admitted to 3 out of 4 top MBA programs in the US, including my dream school, Chicago Booth! As a Booth alum himself, Kirill was able to help me elevate my story and emphasized the important values that resonate with Booth, while separately tailored other aspects of my story to each of the other schools that I applied to.
Look no further than Admissionado. I started my process talking to about 5 other admission consulting firms, and I could feel right away that Kirill was the most passionate, was able to share honest assessment about my strengths and weaknesses, and genuinely believed that he could help me achieve my goals. I signed up for the Junior Deluxe package, and Admissionado’s exceptional service was consistent and exceeded my expectations from start to finish; always on time and, at times, willing to go above and beyond to meet my tight schedules. On top of all of this, the deliverables were always of the highest quality, which resulted in 4 out of 4 interview invites at Chicago Booth, Berkeley Haas, Yale SOM, and UCLA Anderson. Kirill inquired deep into my stories, shared unique perspectives, and analyzed every detail. What I liked most about working with Kirill was how he was able to effectively motivate and challenged me to become the best version of myself, in a way that was both supportive and insightful.
Looking back, I am glad that I made the best decision to work with Kirill and Admissionado. I am thrilled with the results, and I realize that I could not achieve all this without the guidance and support from Kirill and the rest of the Admissionado team members. Thanks for making my dream come true!
I truly enjoyed working with Kirill since he really brought out the best of me. He inquired deeply into my stories and professional background, bringing to light takeaways that I had not even realized. He understood my personality and my strengths as a human and person, helping me showcase and exemplify these in my essays.
