P&Q Consultant Reviews

  • INSEAD? Choose Fortuna
    2 years ago
    I would recommend Fortuna Admissions for anyone working towards an INSEAD MBA application. From start to finish, every dollar was worth it. If it wasn't for the daily coaching by Susanne Peltz, and the reviews at different points by Caroline Edwards, former head of admissions at INSEAD, I probably wouldn't be celebrating an INSEAD MBA acceptance. I had the right profile, the right CV, and the right references, however I didn't know the BEST way to tell a compelling story. Fortuna helps you do just that. You can be the perfect candidate, but if you don't put together a compelling application profile chances are you won't be accepted, even with a high GMAT score.

  • Professional & Patient
    2 years ago
    I chose Fortuna out of the half dozen consulting companies I reached out to because of two reasons: first was that Susanne has fantastic reviews particularly for INSEAD which was my preferred school, and second was that I felt Judith who took my consultation call was engaged in my success from the very start. I can honestly say that Susanne met the hype and more. I was quite unorganized coming into the application stage but Susanne walked me through everything I needed to know. Her initial call with me was comprehensive enough that I was able to build the skeleton of my personal narrative from that alone. Like others have said she knows the entire process through and through, and was able to point me ...

  • Delightful to work with
    3 years ago
    It was a pleasure working with Susanne (and the Fortuna team) on my application, a genuinely good experience. She helped me look back at everything I had done to this point and helped me convey that to the admissions committees in a comprehensive and coherent manner. Susanne excelled at finding the balance between being a professional and someone whom you can connect with - she was critical of my work when it needed improvement and instilled confidence in me when I needed the boost. I trusted her with my application and was not disappointed. I was happy even before I got the news from the MBA programs I had applied to because I learned a lot about myself through the process with Susanne. I would ...

  • Susanne helped me secure a scholarship at INSEAD!
    3 years ago
    I decided to go ahead with Fortuna after having a 30 minute consultation with Matt Symonds. I was very impressed that he had taken the time to thoroughly research my background and it was evident that Fortuna has expert insight into INSEAD admissions, having many consultants who have previously worked in the admissions team (e.g. Caroline and Susanne). INSEAD has a notoriously long application with many essay questions and a video component, but Susanne immediately put me at ease. She knew which aspects of my background to highlight and how to best position my story. She also gave me an action plan with deadlines for the various milestones, which helped to break down the daunting application process. She thoroughly reviewed my drafts and gave me ...

  • Consultant got me into INSEAD
    3 years ago
    I chose a comprehensive school package from Fortuna. Susanne started out with developing a deep understating of my personal profile and stories. She then started to work on a strategy based on my strength and weakness. When I started the essays, which I feel is the most difficult part of the application process, her help was really evident. She's always been very patient and straight to the point. We went through my essays question-by-question and step-by-step countless times. When I got stuck with the essay, she provided support and guidance over the phone as well. Before submitting my application, I felt I needed to change my story on one of the questions. She provided very rapid responses that eventually helped telling the story convincingly and ...

  • Excellent Support
    4 years ago
    Susanne and the Fortuna team were extremely helpful in my journey applying to my chosen MBA program. I was unsure where to start and what to do exactly, but Susanne gave me all the tips and support I needed to ace my application and eventually secure my place in the INSEAD program. Susanne tailored her services specifically to my needs and profile and ensured I was submitting a successful application. She helped me highlight my strengths and achievements and provided me with very valuable insights. I would definitely recommend working with Susanne and the Fortuna team.

  • An excellent choice for anyone very, very busy!
    4 years ago
    Working with Susanne at Fortuna was a fantastic experience for me. Although I was confident that I could get in to my first choice EMBA programme (Kellogg-HKUST) I also knew that the competition would be extremely tough. With a busy career and a young family to juggle, I was conscious that limited time for planning meant I would need a guiding hand to get me over the finish line. Fortuna more than delivered on all fronts. I am hugely grateful to Fortuna for their guidance and would strongly recommend using their services if you want to have peace of mind that you will be accepted by your first choice school.

  • Fantastic well-rounded help
    4 years ago
    Working with Susanne, Matt, and Caroline at Fortuna was absolutely invaluable as I prepared my applications for LBS and INSEAD. I have worked in similar industries in the past and explored many different MBA consulting services before deciding on Fortuna, and I have no regrets choosing Fortuna. My initial Skype call with Matt got me oriented in the right direction, and Susanne and Caroline helped me every step of the way as I prepared draft after draft of my essays and worked through my interviews and acceptance decisions. I am already a strong writer, but Fortuna's team helped me to shape and craft my essays with just the right spin that my goal schools were looking for. I have no doubt in my mind that ...

  • absolutely a wise choice
    4 years ago
    Working with Fortuna was absolutely a wise choice which helped me to gain confidence and relax during the preparation - especially when I was all in for INSEAD only, and I got it! The very customized approach and personal communications all met my needs and told the best story about myself. INSEAD requires many essays on quite general topics, but I found it actually extremely pleasing instead of challenging when I was working with the Fortuna team. They will go straight and tell you which parts are good or need improvement, there might be some amount of work of rewriting but having a professional to guide is definitely much better than struggling with essays that you don't know where to modify. All your materials will ...

  • Testimonial for Fortuna Admissions
    4 years ago
    INSEAD was my goal and with the help of Fortuna team that dream came true. Susanne was a tremendous help, she not only helped me with my essays but also kept me motivated throughout the application process. One of the best qualities about Fortuna team is that they encourage you to tell your story in your own words. I learnt a lot about myself as well in the process. I would recommend Fortuna without a doubt to anyone who is struggling with essay questions or even confidence. They will guide you towards your goal and will be your biggest cheerleader. I would like to thank Susanne and the entire Fortuna team with all my heart.

  • Testimonial for Fortuna Admissions
    5 years ago
    "I would highly recommend Fortuna Admissions to those candidates who are looking not only to get into their dream B-school but also to meet some truly wonderful personalities during their application journey. I have them to thank for my getting admitted to INSEAD (17J) and thus, helping me move one step closer to my dream. Overall, my approach to choosing my consultants were 3-fold: I wanted to successfully meet a tight deadline I needed “experienced” feedback to exponentially improve my chances to get into INSEAD and I wanted my experience with my personal coach to be a positive one When I began my search for MBA consultants in the market, I didn’t have much time between then and my application deadline. Most of the major ...

  • Testimonial for Fortuna Admissions
    5 years ago
    Working with Fortuna transformed the anxiety of applying to a business school to an engaging 10 week self-discovery and planning process. The sincerity of feedback during my introductory call with Matt identified the strength of my profile versus the expectations of my target school (INSEAD). 30 minutes into the call I was confident that Fortuna team was the right advisor to support me in the application process. I worked with Susanne and Caroline extensively through my application process. Their depth of understanding of INSEAD and the breadth of experience in handling students of diverse back grounds was evident in our strategy discussion for positioning my profile appropriately to the school. The insights were so specific that essay development and resume building became simpler and compelling. ...
