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


We understand how MBA admissions committees evaluate you and how that criteria varies from school to school. We help candidates identify and pursue projects at work and beyond to significantly elevate their profiles

We demystify the MBA admissions criteria

And map your background against these criteria

We assess gaps and make specific recommendations on how to improve on each criterion, both at work and beyond.

We identify how to strategically position you so you stand out


Applying for the first time?

We review your entire profile to advise you on

  • if you should apply this year,
  • if you should split your list between this year and next year, and how to do so,
  • if you are applying this year, how to maximize your chances of getting into a top school

“I’d applied the year before on my own, but did not make it. Not sure how much a consultant could help me, when I met Kavita her candid feedback about my previous applications and her suggestions about what I should do to better present myself as a candidate made me immediately sign up. Kavita spent quality time with me, more than I expected anyone to; making sure my application was as strong as it could be. This time around I got into most of the schools I have applied to and even got a $40,000 scholarship from one of them as well”.

“I believe starting with the process early really benefited me, something that Kavita advised me to do. Getting into an MBA program as a male Indian, IT engineer is extremely tough and Kavita helped me succeed by digging into my work-ex and co-curriculars to create a compelling list of accomplishments, positioning me in a unique way and finalizing a coherent goal (short and long term). Futureworks helped me identify and map my strengths and weaknesses with those of the top business schools and helped my narrow down the list.”
