Betsy Massar

Master Admissions


Iโ€™m Betsy Massar, founder of Master Admissions. Right out of Harvard Business School I worked for Goldman Sachs and have spent most of my professional career in and around the financial industry. I worked on both the sell and buy sides (Barclays Global Investors, now Blackrock), and have worked on Wall Street (in the 80โ€™s), Asia (in the 90โ€™s), and San Francisco (in the new millennium!)You might think I am partial to HBS, but Iโ€™m actually quite fond of Stanford Graduate School of Business, as a communications and resume coach, and an editor of GSB professorsโ€™ academic papers. I am also a writer and editor with Institutional Investor journals.My partner, Frances Hochschild, bio here, offers her counsel, especially on resumes, interviewing, and on anything related to consulting. Frances, a former Bain consultant, was head of west coast recruiting for the firm, and continues to work as a recruiter for private equity firms.Lately Iโ€™ve been doing pro-bono work for the Forte Foundation, which has amazing resources for women, and for Service2School.org, which offers free application counseling to military vets.
