MBA Admissions Consulting

The Art of the Bold currently offers MBA admissions consulting. If you would like to schedule a free, 30 minute consultation, please use the contact form at the end of the page or email us at

Why chose us? I could say it is because we only accept a limited number of clients in the admissions season to be able to offer highly personalized, customized service. We have over 15 years of experience in supporting our clients. Our clients have called our service “life-changing” and still frequently contact us for career and sometimes life advice many years after completing their MBA.

However, I would like to tell you a story. A story of Maris (not her real name), who wanted to apply to a top-business school to fulfill her dream of becoming an investment banker. She wasn’t sure where she should apply or how to translate her marketing background into a successful application. Maris and I worked together on her school selection first. We looked at schools where based on her personality she could thrive and get the support she needed to be successful in her two years. Over the next two months we worked on her essays by asking questions that self-examined who she is as a person and how she wants to operate in the world. She was invited to interview for several schools and I helped prepare her to tell story. We worked on her executive presence so that when she went in, she felt confident and ready to explain why she belonged on campus. I am happy to say that not only did she get into her top choice she got into several of her top choice schools with scholarship money. Today, Maris is working as an investment banker and still checking in for advice to push her career forward.

This is what we do for our clients.

Client Testimonials:

Damali pays special attention to individual needs of her team mates. Damali was my manager on the very first project at Deloitte. She recognized that while I had a lot of finance expertise, I lacked consulting skills and experience. She spent a lot of time with me, helping me understand the importance of building my network, and giving me very specific practical advice on how to handle tough client and team situations. I consider Damali not only my friend, but a mentor and greatly appreciate and value her guidance and advice.” – Yelena G.

“The great thing about Damali’s counsel is that she is clear and direct so there is no energy wasted trying to decipher what she really thinks. She’s sincere, thoughtful and creative. Mostly importantly, she’s right.” – Adwoa B.
