At Futureworks, we have a strong track record of getting students into top schools from Harvard to Wharton to Columbia to LBS to INSEAD. And we are known for helping reapplicants to make it to their dream schools! We have helped applicants who have been rejected in 1, or even 2 cycles, get admitted.
Here’s how we help, step-by-step. You can start with us right from step 1, or at any point in our process.
In college we help you decide on whether to
- apply to a deferred MBA
- apply for a Master’s and, later an MBA
If you have work experience, we help you decide on
- whether to apply for a Master’s, MBA or a dual degree MBA
- which MBA programs to target, given your profile, career goals and analysis of recruitment statistics.
We help by:
deep diving into your different academic, career and personal interests
identifying how to weave these together to create exciting career goals
designing different pathways to achieve your career goals
recommending a pathway and program(s) to achieve your career goals
recommending countries and a list of universities, along with what you’ll need to do to be a competitive applicant
