Founded by Scott Edinburgh, a Wharton MBA and MIT Sloan graduate who sits on the Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants Board of Directors, Personal MBA Coach has been guiding clients for 16 years and is consistently ranked #1 or #2 by leading sources including Poets&Quants. Our clients earned $6.5M in scholarships during Round 1 this cycle including nearly $2M in Forté Fellowships.

We help clients with all aspects of the MBA application process including early planning, GMAT/GRE/EA tutoring, comprehensive MBA application support, school selection, essay editing, and mock interviews with former M7 and T10 admissions interviewers.

All Personal MBA Coach clients work directly with Scott or MJ Shores, a former Wharton Admissions Director. They are supported by former M7 and T10 admissions interviewers, expert GMAT, GRE and EA tutors and a small boutique team of seasoned writers and graduate professors with PhD and master’s degrees from leading universities including Harvard, Yale and Columbia. Personal MBA Coach’s leadership team also includes Erin Edinburgh Wand (Scott’s sister), a former Forté Scholarship recipient and Bain & Company consultant with an MBA from Yale SOM, who runs the company’s marketing operations and knowledge management.
