    Our mission is to provide tailored training, prep, and insight to equip business-minded students who are vying for a spot in the top MBA B-schools, in a highly competitive market, with the necessary infrastructure to have the best possible chance at success in their applications.


    Since 1996, we have successfully placed over 1,700 students into the top 15 MBA schools in the United States and Europe.


    Our expertise is based on understanding and deciphering Brazilian students' academic and professional background and addressing their needs to excel on standardized testing and in the most challenging MBA admissions processes.

    making the difference


    With 17 years in MBA Admissions, Professor Paulo Cesar has developed a unique methodology to guide and maximize the process of admissions of Brazilians, which has rendered him a track record of approvals into schools such as Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Chicago Booth, Columbia, Wharton, and other top 15's. Contact us for more information.

    Preparatory Courses

    Philadelphia Consulting has administered courses to over 2,000 students, offering comprehensive TOEFL and GMAT programs to build test content knowledge, develop reasoning, foster concentration, and consolidate strategy and performance.

    Interview Development

    In the final step of the application process, many students fail to provide a well-developed and transparent MBA interview. Our methodology has helped students present the best possible profile and fit during their meetings with school representatives. More information by clicking here.


    B-Schools have begun accepting video essays as part of the application process. We have designed a tailored solution to address the needs of students for professional video editing for submission. Click here for more information.

    Passion and Focus

    Our commitment and desire to provide our students with a personalized and top-quality service began many years ago. The gratification from seeing a student's excited smile once accepted is still the key driver for our work.
