Bringing what the market is missing

We're here to provide comprehensive expert advice

The market for admissions mentoring in India is dangerous

Agencies without any experience or knowledge of the West routinely give bad advice about what MBA and Master of Business programs are looking for in a candidate. Many even take placement fees from low quality universities – steering students towards institutions that will pay them for students, rather than those that will help accelerate a student’s career.

The market for admissions mentoring in India is fragmented

Clients have to go to one place for GMAT coaching. Another for admissions guidance. Clients get confusing and often conflicting advice.

Enter Beacon

We’re here to offer holistic expert advice. Our mentors have lived and worked in the West and understand what admissions committees are looking for. Our mentors are also trained in all the components of a successful application. From the GMAT to the admissions interview a single mentor guides you through the entire process. While doing so they learn about you and your career aspirations, and so are able to give you better, more targeted advice that builds upon your strengths and addresses your weaknesses. We use technology as an accelerator throughout the admissions lifecycle. We use the same tech platform that top business schools use to help you get familiar with the tools that will be available to you. Our cloud based algorithms analyze your performance on every practice exam and worksheet and identify patterns and weak areas. Our mentors then use those insights to provide you with customized advice that maximizes the use of your time.

Be a Leader

Our clients have gotten admission to MBA programs at Harvard Business School (including the 2+2 program), Wharton, LBS, Yale School of Management (including the Yale Silver Scholars program), Stanford and others.
