Crack The MBA is a leading MBA admissions consulting firm headquartered in New Delhi, India with a proven track record of success. We provide highly specialized one-on-one service to help MBA applicants tell the best possible story that they can. We follow a proprietary process to help clients undergo a deep introspection process and discover themselves. This process is unique for each individual and cannot be replicated as a cookie-cutter solution. Our clients are located all across the world. We have a deep understanding of the process having gone through it ourselves and having helped aspirants year after year. We work with a select group of candidates and get to know them intricately to help them tell their story.
As for our name, did you find yourself wondering what Crack The MBA means? Is it about completing your MBA on crack? Is it like “cracking the whip” or “cracking an egg”? Well, these are fair questions (which we’ve actually been asked). It’s none of these.
Our name originates from the phrase “crack the code“, which means solving a puzzle. You can think of it as Da Vinci’s code. We think of ourselves as facilitators who help you – the MBA applicant – solve the puzzle to the MBA admissions process. We commissioned a creative design studio out of Lebanon with a mandate to depict a puzzle getting solved. Each tile in the logo represents a piece of your story (a piece of a puzzle). We gather all the pieces of your story and then try to make sense of them – putting them together to complete the puzzle. The “C” denotes a completed Rubik’s cube, with the top left tile depicting all the pieces coming together and the puzzle getting solved. The “C” also evokes Crack The MBA’s brand.
