MBALaunch Partners


Platinum Partner

Stratus Admissions Counseling is thrilled to be the Platinum Sponsor for Forté's 2019 MBALaunch program. Since 2006, Stratus has helped thousands of clients achieve their dreams of going to business school. Stratus counselors are passionate about coaching young professionals on their application journeys. Our team of expert counselors are graduates of Harvard, Wharton, Columbia, Duke, MIT, and many have direct admissions experience or have served as either alumni or student admissions interviewers. Applying to business school is a complex and stressful process. Our seasoned MBA counselors can help you present a clear, compelling picture of who you are so you can apply with confidence. Last year, Stratus counselors conducted over 200 Office Hours with Launchers, providing profile evaluations, feedback on resumes, and guidance on school selection. In fall 2018, one quarter of Stratus’ female clients starting MBA programs were granted Forté Fellowships at Berkeley-Haas, Tuck, Yale SOM, Duke-Fuqua, UCLA Anderson, UVA Darden, Cornell Johnson, WashU Olin, and Vanderbilt Owen.


Gold Partner

Personal MBA Coach is pleased to be a Forté MBALaunch Gold Partner. Founded by a Wharton and MIT graduate over 11 years ago, Personal MBA Coach has helped hundreds of applicants around the world get into top MBA, EMBA, part-time MBA and graduate programs. Personal MBA Coach was formed with the goal of providing the customized one-on-one support that was missing at the larger firms with cookie cutter processes. This one-on-one guidance continues today as our founder, Scott Edinburgh, provides personal support to all clients. Our comprehensive counseling includes mock interviews with a team of former M7 interviewers and customized GMAT/GRE tutoring with tutors who scored in the 99th percentile. Scott also serves on the Board of Directors for AIGAC, the Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants and is invited to speak at MBA Admissions events globally. Our clients have been accepted to HBS, Stanford, Wharton, MIT Sloan, Chicago Booth, Kellogg, Columbia GSB, Yale SOM, LBS, Dartmouth Tuck and many more with a 96% success rate. They received $4.5M in total scholarships last year and over $1M in Forté Fellowships, with some MBALaunchers earning a full ride.
