2020 Forté MBALaunch On Demand

Forté MBALaunch On Demand will give you a clear road map to help you navigate the MBA application process. Our line-up of webinars will help you "get it done," but also inspire you along the way so that you feel good about your future and how the MBA will support your personal and professional goals. Our intention is to make you the best MBA candidate possible.


  • 15 GMAT preparation webinar recordings
  • 13 application preparation webinar recordings
  • GMAT homework and study plans
  • An MBA application preparation guide
  • Application fee waivers offered by more than 35 of our sponsor schools

Because the MBALaunch On Demand program is self paced, you are welcome to get started as soon as you are ready.




  1. What is the program duration?
    The beauty of MBALaunch On Demand is that it is self paced; the time you spend on this program may vary in small or big ways from your peers. In general, we recommend setting aside 3 months for our GMAT Prep and another 3 months for our Application Prep.
  2. How much time per week do I need to dedicate to MBALaunch On Demand?
    Again, this answer will vary person to person. The program is designed to walk you through the admissions process, beginning with GMAT preparation, and ending with a thoughtful review of the entire MBA admissions process. In general, we would recommend dedicating 3-4 hours per week to MBALaunch.
  3. How does the MBALaunch On Demand Program Differ from the MBALaunch Live Program?
    MBALaunch On Demand includes the same webinar content, assignments, and study plans as the live program. The MBALaunch live option also includes a day-long educational and networking event, an assigned peer networking group, and a formalized advising program. The next in-person MBALaunch program will be offered for women targeting F21 enrollment. Applications will open this fall. For women targeting F19 admission, we recommend the On Demand program.
  4. How can I make the most of the program?
    Your MBALaunch program satisfaction will be directly related to your engagement in the program. This is a structured program that calls for you to dedicate time to GMAT study, self-reflection, and application preparation. The more time you invest, the better your experience will be. We suggest that you engage with your fellow On Demand Launchers on our Forté Connect platform. This platform is where you will find GMAT and Application webinars, access partner discounts, and view MBALaunch social events.
  5. When will I have access to the MBALaunch On Demand curriculum and program partner discounts?
    Within one week of registration, we will send you access information for Forté Connect, an exclusive intranet site for MBALaunch On Demand participants.

Forté's MBALaunch program was incredibly informative. I had a great time and found all of the webinars on both the GMAT and the Application prep extremely helpful. I am glad I took the time to complete all of them. I took the GMAT again and was able to improve 80 points. Thank you for all of your work.
