What is Crimson MBA?

Founded by Rhodes Scholar, Harvard grad, and Stanford GSB's youngest MBA admit Jamie Beaton, Crimson MBA is a specialized consulting service for young professionals ready to break into the world's top MBA programs. 

With strategic coaching from former CEOs and M7 admissions officers, cross-disciplinary business leaders, and nationally recognized research fellows,  Crimson MBA students receive the latest expert guidance as they select their MBA programs and prepare their applications and interviews.

Submit your CV and target schools to our Strategy team. If one of our experts elects to work with you, they'll share a profile assessment before you choose to sign with us.


Meet your other Crimson tutors (as selected) for targeted support on test prep, job applications, or fellowship applications.


Meet your Strategist more frequently during application season for comprehensive support on crafting essays, preparing interviews, and framing your CVs.

How does Crimson MBA work?


Meet your Strategist 1:1 to assess your profile, goals, and programs suited to both. Discuss strategy regularly for boosting your profile in the 1-3 years prior to applications.
