After a seven year career in advertising, I enrolled at Columbia Business School (Class of 2006) – transitioning into a consulting role post-graduation. Over the past eleven years I have held a variety of strategy and marketing roles at traditional consultancies, at Fortune 500 companies, and as an independent contractor.
In 2010 I began working part-time for one of the top MBA admissions consulting firms in the U.S. As an MBA consultant I could make a difference. I could help one person achieve their dream – something that is increasingly hard to do in the corporate world. While the training I received was invaluable my entrepreneurial spirit started to kick-in, so in 2014 I struck out on my own. I had the training; now I wanted to help others in my own way. Over the past few years I have successfully helped applicants gain entry into some of the world’s most demanding schools.
I work with applicants across a multitude of industries, functions, and countries. Though a generalist, I have a particular fondness for global business – having lived and worked in Paris / Singapore in international roles. I often work with international clients.
In my spare time I love to travel – mostly to off the beaten track locations. If we end up working together I might share a story or two….
The Jaffe Advantage is a full service MBA Admissions Consultancy – with a focus on flexibility. As sole proprietor, I have the ability to customize packages to fit your needs. Are you a whiz at the interview? Don’t need a mock and want to save some money? Let’s take it out of the package. Is your application due in two weeks and you know you won’t be able to take advantage of the full service? Let’s modify it so you pay for what you will receive.
I have been advising prospective MBA candidates since 2010 and have helped multiple applicants gain entry to the top U.S. and European business schools. I received my training at one of the top firms in the U.S., where I worked for four years before breaking out on my own. Today I am able to offer you the assurance of a best-in-class product at a lower price point than my competitors. Why? Simply speaking – no overhead.
Menu of Services and Associated Costs
I offer three products:
1) End-to-End Advisory: I believe in partnering with you through every step of the process to ensure your best chance of success. We begin with school selection and end when you complete your interview. There is no limit to the number of conversations we have or the number of essay drafts you send me.
2) Application Strategy: This option is best for you if you want to go at it alone but would like advice / help on your profile and positioning. It includes: school selection; profile development; and initial discussion around essay topic approach for up to two schools.
3) Hourly Trial: Though I believe in the partnership model, I realize that it is a big committment. To that end, I offer limited hourly help (starting with a minimum of two hours and up to a maximum of five hours) to help you decide if this service is right for you. If you wish to continue after five hours you can convert to an end-to-end advisory package; the cost of the hours you purchased will be deducted from the final price.
A free consultation is available upon request for interested applicants.
