Description

**Perfect for the 2016-2017 Admissions Period**

For students around the globe, an MBA from a highly ranked US-based program is a key to accelerating their career and boosting their earnings. Top ranked business schools want applicants from around the globe and across a range of industries. However, many international applicants struggle to obtain acceptance in top US business schools due to lack of familiarity with US admissions processes and expectations.

This course, designed by a team of professionals who have served on the admissions committees of multiple Ivy League and top-5 MBA programs, can help international students navigate the US MBA application process. The content presented covers the "do's and don'ts" that are often misunderstood by non-US applicants, and provides specific, actionable advice for applicants to top MBA programs.

Covered in this course:

  • How to prepare before you have even selected possible schools
  • Expert's tips to craft stand-out essays and resumes
  • How to use the recommenders and interview process to repair any weaknesses in your package
  • Important steps to follow after you have applied to ensure “No” doesn’t mean No.


Documentation included for use in conjunction with the Video Lectures:

  • Checklist- make sure nothing is left off of your application or left out during the process
  • Timeline- Don’t get bogged down by deadlines, this easy to use tool will allow you to keep everything in one place
  • Standard Resume Template- Using the template keeps the ADCOM member happy


This course is purposely given in a slow, easy to understand format to account for the fact that many students will not have English as a first language.

¡HOLA!

My name is Levi McFarland and I work with a group of professionals in the Altiro Academy based in Santiago, Chile. I have lived all over the world and my passion is starting new businesses in new countries. 

I founded the Altiro Academy in 2014 to provide a holistic approach to meeting our goal, which is simply to provide the the best online courses and training in 4 separate but connected areas: Nutrition, Exercise, Beauty and Education. 

Each professional in our organization represents years of experience in their respected field, but has a very special characteristic....they love to teach! Everyone involved with the Altiro Academy is passionate about helping people.

We originally chose Nutrition, Exercise, Beauty and Education because we believe these are important paths to bringing out the best versions of ourselves. Consequently, the mission statement for the Altiro Academy is to create courses that:

- Are simple to follow and can be applied to real life

- Are affordable and within reach for those with a real desire to improve

- Are interesting and fun, we don't want people falling asleep!

- Are top-tier quality, which principally comes from our top class instructors

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Una empresa con su casa matriz en Chile, pero con profesionales de todo parte del mundo. Nuestro enfoque siempre ha sido ayudar a la gente en tres áreas: Nutrición, Ejercicio y Belleza.

Cada profesional en nuestra organización tiene harta experiencia trabajando en su rubro, pero tienen una característica especial....les encanta enseñar! Nos apasiona ayudar a la gente!

Junto con el equipo elegimos Nutrición, Ejercicio y Belleza porque creemos son rutas para llegar a la mejor versión de nosotros mismos. Pensando de esta forma, llegamos a la misión de la Altiro Academy, lo cual es crear cursos que cumplen:

  • - Cursos simples de seguir y aplicar en la vida real

  • - Cursos affordable y al alcance de gente con ganas de mejorar
