Work With Us

At the core of Ivy Groupe's work with clients is an emphasis on authenticity.

This comes from a deep-rooted belief that every single person who is applying to business school has a unique and compelling story to tell.

  • If you want to stand out, you need to be true to yourself.  What you have gone through in your life – in school, personally, at the workplace – is what makes you YOU.  There is no other person in this world who has walked in your shoes, had your exact experiences, and seen the world from your eyes.  Admissions Committees want to understand the living person beyond the two-dimensional application.

  • If you want to differentiate yourself, you need to approach the application process with your heart.  Business school applications are really more about the why than the what.  What will really set your applications apart is providing color on why something has been instrumental in shaping you or why something means so much to you. 

  • If you want to be memorable, the human element must come through.  Business schools want a diverse class of students who are able to deeply reflect upon and share their experiences with their classmates and the broader community.  By being authentic, you will show that you are human and demonstrate how you will be able to uniquely contribute to business school programs.

With this strategy, Ivy Groupe's clients have been able to maximize their chances of gaining acceptance to their dream business schools.

HBS Interview Prep Package

The HBS Interview is unique in that it is not "blind" (i.e. it is conducted by a member of the Admissions Committee who has read your entire application) and there is a post-interview reflection; as a result, the interview is very customized to your own background, story, and narrative.  Work directly with Shaifali (our Founder/CEO and an HBS graduate who collaborated with the HBS Admissions Office as a student) as you prepare for your HBS interview.  The HBS Interview Prep Package includes the following:

  • Initial discussion on how to approach the interview and post-interview reflection

  • Review of application and preparation of questions for mock interview

  • One mock interview + feedback

  • Post-interview reflection feedback

Shaifali's (Founder) Pricing:
