Company Information

When everyone claims to be “the leading MBA admissions company,” do words matter anymore? Who are you supposed to believe?

To be frank, we don’t pay a ton of attention to the field. Our objective can be summed up in one word: “Win.”

We don’t mess around. Our temperament comes from––in all candor––age and experience and enormous success. We keep a lower profile than others, but that’s part of our story. Our word of mouth from former clients is so powerful, we have the luxury to remain focused on the work, rather than on promoting ourselves. (As future business people, just think about how cool that is.) We’re able to dedicate all our time to helping our clients win by getting into elite business schools, and setting them up for success well beyond. If that kind of professional formula sounds like a good match for what you’re all about, come meet us. Let’s find out if we’ll click.

A lot of firms sport elite former Adcoms. And elite MBAs. And eye-popping stats and success and reviews. So…

Yes. If we were in your shoes, our eyes would glaze over, too. But you’ll do your due diligence––and we encourage it. Picking the right coach is important. In the end, you’ll have a strong sense of who’s for real and who’s all flair but no substance. Who offers a sincere, intelligent assessment versus who will prey on your anxiety. Our advice: put together a shortlist of firms, and go meet as many as you need. Get a feel. If you’re truly top MBA material, we’re confident you’ll recognize the unmistakable signature of experience, excellence and sincerity. In your bones.

Cool, but what’s The MBA Exchange’s… thing? What, if anything, makes your firm different?

  • A self-assuredness and focus that comes from experience and a roster of true professionals.
  • No bullsh*t. [Caring? Yes. Determined? Yes. Coddling? Not so much.]
  • Genuinely good, smart, decent, solid people.* 

[*As you get older and wiser, you start to realize how important this is, and more interestingly… how rare. Our M.O. at The MBA Exchange since our inception has been to only invite not just the smartest and most accomplished professionals onto our team, but also only those people who are genuinely “good eggs.” People we genuinely like. People we find to be mature and dependable and committed to others’ success. It may seem like a strange differentiator to call out, but honestly, that’s the one that may matter most at the end of the day.]

    Miklos was key to my MBA applications' success. He helped me with my school selection, strategy, and time allocation for each part of my application. After lengthy discussions, we decided to target three top schools and what the best strategy was for all three applications. Miklos helped with setting key dates and support for each part. Miklos was most helpful with my essays. When I reached out to him after I hit a wall he was patient and gave me new perspectives I could explore and write about. I was admitted to all three programs and had a helpful conversation with Miklos to make a final decision. I would have not accomplished this without his help.

    Miklos was an absolutely integral part of my MBA admissions journey for the class of 2022. I attribute my success in getting into multiple top 10 programs (with scholarships!) to his guidance. In July 2019, I completed my GMAT but when I sat down to begin my applications, I determined that I needed help in curating the remainder of my application. I had a free phone consultation with Miklos and immediately realized that he would be able to help me shape my unique story and achieve my goals. I chose to work with Miklos with the 3-School package at first, but ended up adding an additional school after I saw how Miklos took my applications to the next level. Even before writing my essays, Miklos ...
