About the MBA Center
The MBA Center is a network of educational advising and test preparation centers that help prospective MBA students enhance their chances of admission to business schools. We also work with MBA programs, assisting them in identifying and reaching qualified candidates for admission.
MBA Center offers MBA information and preparation service internationally. Established in 1996 by a group of test preparation specialists and admissions consultants, our centers have helped thousands of non-native English-speaking MBA applicants succeed in entering the best business programs in the United States, Canada, and Western Europe. The MBA Center management is dedicated to establishing its global presence and strengthening its expertise in test preparation, professional training, business English training and admissions coaching.
The MBA Center network of test prep centers has been constantly expanding and currently operates in ten countries in Europe and South America. The MBA Center is more than a network of educational centers: through our investment in research and development we have created a team of MBA admission experts as well as strong IT and publishing departments. Since its early days in Paris, the MBA Center has responded to client demand by rapidly expanding both geographically and in its range of services, offering serious students help at every step along the way: from initial consultations and diagnostic testing to intensive test preparation plus coaching and complete application support. Services include candidacy assessment, school selection, GMAT and TOEFL classes and tutoring, essay writing and resume editing, interview preparation and career orientation. Depending on Center location, we also offer TOEIC, SAT, GRE, LSAT, and TAGE-MAGE courses and tutoring.
Our high standards as well as our commitment to the needs of individual clients have earned us a solid reputation among MBA applicants and the most prestigious MBA programs. We measure our success by the success of our students, many of whom have won admission to the best business programs in Europe and North America. It is the unique MBA Center teaching methodology, outstanding instructors and coaches, superb study materials, the optimal organization of the courses, the use of innovative technologies, and individual approach to student's needs that propel our students to progress steadily and rapidly.

Our Unique Method
The MBA Center Method, a unique and effective preparation program, is one reason why thousands of applicants choose to join our courses in centers around the world every year. The MBA Center Method includes educational materials and techniques that have been developed over many years. Our research team includes professional teachers, coaches, mathematicians, psychologists, psychometrists, and writers. At not the least, we greatly appreciate - and incorporate - continuous feedback from students.
To be clear, we do not teach basic English, mathematics, logic or writing skills at the MBA Center. What we teach you is how to succeed on standardized tests and how to best present yourself on an MBA application. It is true that you do not have to be an English expert in order to achieve a top TOEFL score. You do not have to be a natural writer in order to compose a winning application essay either. What you need, however, is to know what exactly is expected from you and what strategies will maximize your chances for success.
Another advantage of the MBA Center Method is flexibility. Our staff will design a preparation program that takes your individual needs, strengths, and weaknesses into account. Thorough progress monitoring throughout the entire training period makes it possible to modify and adapt your personal program as needed.
Unlimited Number of Test Prep Hours
We strongly believe that practice is the key to success in test preparation. Therefore, we offer you as many test prep hours as you need in order to achieve desired test results.
Convenient Locations and Schedules
Our centers are conveniently located in major cities to provide for easy access. Classes are held in the evenings and on weekends so that preparation does not interfere with your work and other activities. If you prefer to study at another location or at other times, we can arrange this for you on an individual basis. A wide range of online and distance-learning tools is also available.
Instructors and Coaches
The MBA Center team of test prep instructors, admissions consultants, MBA coaches, and editors offers students a unique pool of expertise, skills, and experience capable of providing any service or type of assistance that students may need in their preparation for an MBA. Every individual working at the MBA Center has gone through a strict selection process and has completed an MBA Center Method training program to guarantee the highest quality of services.
The MBA Center has a strict policy of hiring only graduates of top North American and European universities. Currently, we have instructors and coaches who have graduated from INSEAD, Wharton, Stanford, HEC Paris, Duke, Chicago Booth, Columbia and Carnegie Mellon.
Although a great number of our teaching staff are Americans and Canadians by nationality, all have extensive teaching experience abroad. This means that they are aware of and know how to tackle specific difficulties that non-native English-speaking applicants confront in preparing for MBA admittance.
