Alex Leventhal

Prep MBA


I am among a handful of industry veterans who still works directly with applicants to the top 20 MBA programs both in the US, Europe and Asia. It is my strong belief that acceptance at leading programs ultimately comes down the emotional energy you can emit for your MBA candidacy. The GMAT and your undergraduate academic record are critical. However, beyond that, my job is to push you to connect emotionally with your application essay readers and interviewers, and to create energy around your candidacy through specific explanations of your accomplishments, choices, influences and career ambitions.I am an HBS grad, philosophy major undergrad, and worked in pharma/healthcare consumer products prior to my MBA, and then post MBA worked in life sciences tech and management consulting. I’ve worked for global firms such as Johnson & Johnson Consumer Products, Eli Lilly, and Siebel Systems.Writing and editing are my passions, and clients talk most about my contributions to their essays and interview preparation. I am a frequent lecturer at the Harvard Club of Los Angeles on career planning and MBA admissions.
