How To Improve Your MBA Application As An Asian Candidate?

MBA Workshop - 23 July 2022

On average, an MBA applicant from Asia will have more difficulty getting into top business programmes compared to their US or European counterparts.

This is neither a secret nor a conspiracy. The number of qualified candidates from Asia is high, and MBA programs have to maintain a demographic quota to keep their cohort diversified. Keep in mind that Stanford Graduate School of Business takes between 6 to 10 candidates each year for the whole Southeast Asia! 

Over the years at Prep Zone, we have helped candidates get into these top programs by helping them make their profile stand out from the sea of overqualified candidates.

Too often, candidates missed securing a top MBA admission offer not because they lack the qualifications, but because they fail to build a compelling profile that will differentiate them. 

Join us for our dedicated MBA workshop to learn on how to best set your profile apart from other applicants.  In this workshop, Jonathan (our MBA expert) will not only give you insights and advice on how to improve your profile but also share actual case studies that you can relate to.

What Our Successful Applicants Have To Say

I wanted to gain a deeper understanding of the nuances of the top schools beyond what’s simply available on school websites. Jonathan was able to explain these nuances, which was instrumental for crafting applications tailored to each program. As a result, I got accepted into three M7 schools and will be attending my dream school this fall.

I had a great experience working with Jonathan. I had prepared for R1 on my own and though I got interview calls, I wasn’t able to convert them for the US schools. After I went to Prepzone, I got great feedback on my essays and got more clarity on what I was doing wrong. I was really happy to get interview calls from all 5 schools that I applied to and then to get final offers from 4 out of the 5 schools. I am really looking forward to going to Kellogg and I truly believe that this wouldn’t have been possible without Jonathan’s help.

Working full time, having someone like Jonathan dedicated to helping me with my applications, both in terms of timeline management as well as helping me navigate through the right content to include in my essays, prep-zone really was a life saver. Tiffany was also a strong positive influence on my essay editing and helped me bring out the best versions of my stories. What I also highly appreciated was the help and guidance in picking the right program for me, after receiving multiple offers. Jonathan was helpful on a personal level and was instrumental in helping me understand which program would be the best fit for me. All in all, I achieved an excellent outcome for my MBA applications thanks to the great work offered by the Admissions Consulting team at Prep-Zone.

Jonathan constantly provided me support, guidance and encouragement throughout the arduous process of preparing for my GMAT and subsequently, the application. His presence definitely played a large presence in my ability to land an offer at Stanford. He was extremely knowledgeable about the process and available resources and provided me with benchmarks to reassure me that I wasn’t falling too far behind my fellow applicants. The interview preparation with Jonathan helped to clearly identify my gaps and allowed me to gain actionable insights on how to improve. I don’t think I would have made it without the encouragement I have received over this process. Thank you so much Jonathan!

My numerous in-depth conversations with Jonathan helped refine my goals, which was reflected well in my essays. During the entire application and interview process, his round-the-clock availability and quick turnarounds were truly appreciated. I firmly believe that HBS would not have been possible without him. Thank you again.
