The Ivy Approach
We approach the consultancy process differently from other admissions firms. At Ivy, we are building something together with you. We are here throughout the entire process and are ready to do what it takes to get you into your top choice.
We View Every Candidate as Different - The Ivy approach is unique in that it is based on a personal and intimate acquaintance with each candidate, tailoring every application to the candidate's characteristics and to the school's culture and values.
We Know the Value of The Network - We provide every candidate with a vast network of MBA students and alumni. These contacts prove vital in researching schools, industries and companies; in defining a clear career path; or in just trying to make sense of what a top MBA program is really all about.
We’re with You the Whole Way – We are by your side throughout the application process and beyond, working not only to get you admitted to your dream school, but also helping you become a wiser person along the way, better acquainted with your own values and ambitions, and fully prepared for the big move and the MBA challenge itself.
The Ivy Consultants
Every Ivy consultant is a graduate of a top MBA program, and each has been carefully selected to help you through the often mystifying admissions process. Your Ivy consultant will serve as a close personal advisor who knows you and guides you comprehensively throughout the application procedures.
Because all our consultants have been through the MBA admissions process, they thoroughly understand what you’re going through. What’s more, many of them bring unique knowledge gained by serving on their schools' admissions committees, where they have helped dozens of international candidates realize their dream of admission to a top MBA program.
In addition, our consultants have worked in the American corporate world and therefore can provide a realistic, yet creative, perspective on your career goals, which are a crucial part of the application strategy.
The only Ivy team member who is not an MBA graduate is Judith S. Hodara who joined us as the Academic Director and is in constant touch with the advisors team and candidates to ensure top quality work.
The Ivy Process
Our process was designed after years of experience assisting candidates with their MBA applications. Every step counts. Here are some highlights:
Consultant Matching - We use a comprehensive process of matching the most suitable consultant to every candidate, aiming to maximize the candidate's prospects of being admitted to his or her dream school.
The Ivy Round Table - During the Ivy Round Table session, several experienced advisers, including your own, work as a team to define and implement the best strategy, uniquely designed for you. This comprehensive planning “covers the waterfront,” from choosing the most suitable schools to determining the best way to position your profile.
Quality Assurance- Throughout the application process, every document, essay or piece of data undergoes extensive reviews by various consultants other than your own. These critiques make sure that we have chosen the best approach in light of your characteristics and our deep familiarity with the schools' admissions committees. These exhaustive evaluations are provided at no additional cost as part of the Ivy service.
