Kevin Chen

MBA Prep School


Kevin holds master’s degrees from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and a BA in Political Science from Princeton University. He has nearly a decade of full-time experience consulting business school applicants and has established one of the industry’s leading track records in helping applicants gain admissions to Stanford, Harvard and Wharton. Since 2007, Kevin has worked with more than 130 admits to Stanford / Harvard / Wharton and more than 240 admits to the remaining “M7” MBA programs (MIT Sloan, Chicago Booth, Northwestern Kellogg and Columbia Business School). In the process of attaining these outstanding admissions results, Kevin delivers critical competitive edge for clients by devising application strategies that target how top MBA AdComs make admissions decisions behind closed doors.An expert in personal branding, Kevin draws on his years of strategy and marketing experience in advising his clients. Prior to becoming an MBA admissions consultant, Kevin developed international marketing partnerships for the National Basketball Association and consulted Fortune 500 firms as a Senior Associate for McKinsey & Company in the U.S. and China. Kevin also brings advanced writing and presentation skills from working as a Senior Correspondent for Reuters news agency and as a PR specialist for Ogilvy & Mather. He translates his branding and marketing experience, deep familiarity with wide-ranging industries, and insider’s knowledge of top MBA AdComs into tailored admissions strategies for MBA applicants of all backgrounds.Lastly, Kevin does not just guide clients into elite MBA programs; after his clients become MBA students, Kevin continues to mentor his clients on recruiting for summer and full-time jobs and on making the best use of the business school experience. Kevin maintains active connections with his former clients to form a worldwide support network for MBA students and applicants – e.g., connecting applicants to MBA students who had interviewed with the same interviewers so that the applicants understand not only the interview tactics and techniques of particular schools, but also the personalities and tendencies of particular interviewers; introducing new admits to former clients who work in the admits’ professional fields of interest so that new admits can get a head start on career development and recruitment.
