For leaders: One Year MBA applicants are different from two year MBA applicants: most have expansive work histories and need to be positioned accordingly as leaders .

The admitOne difference:
#1 Engineered to project the leader in you through careful selection of key talking points. Because leaders talk less and say more. With long work histories, it is both important to research your career in detail as well as to know what matters enough to merit a place on your application. For instance, ‘achievements’ for two year MBA applicants with lesser years of work experience could be par for the course for a One Year MBA applicant. That is why:
1) We delve deep into your expansive work history using a propitiatory research questionnaire 2) We find the key talking points that matter for a candidate with extensive work experience 3) The process is handled by professionals with a long history in the corporate world in leadership profiles who understand exactly what merits a place on your application
