How do you know they’re ready for graduate classes on day one?

Help your admits cross the chasm to become great students with MBA iQ.

  • Some schools have pre-requisites. What does this really tell you?
  • Some schools have rigorous testing for readiness. Do scores cause success?
  • Some schools have rigorous academic criteria. Is it all about prior academic achievement?

MBA iQ accelerates student readiness for success in the classroom.

It’s better to intervene than to remediate.  The dirty little secret is that every school has remediation. 

Schools can’t afford to create their own remediation program.  Time is a valuable resource.  In business, we talk “time to productivity.” How ready are your students to contribute on Day 1?   Do your professors spend too much time in remediation?  Are they maximizing their value-contribution to your MBA program?  


"My undergraduate degree was in bio behavioral health, and I've been working in sales and marketing at a chemical company for the last six years. I'm pursuing an MBA to gain business acumen for more advanced sales roles. 

I liked the MBA iQ and took a lot of notes. It was very intuitive - the math questions were the application of the math concepts covered in the course. 

I thought I'd have to start the MBA blind since the GMAT was waived for me. The MBA iQ gave me the confidence in starting the MBA. Also, I was able to apply the MBA iQ to my job right now as the learnings were very tangible. I gained the language of business." 

-- Jamie, matriculating Penn State MBA

Client Testimonials

Many schools have up to 18 hours of prerequisites – and close to $18,000 in tuition for the foundation courses that MBA iQ provides.  

Learn from Penn State. 

The students couldn’t begin graduate-level courses until they met their foundational coursework.  Many applicants were either giving up or going to other schools.  PSU replaced their foundation course requirement with MBA iQ and increased their enrollments without sacrificing educational outcomes making MBA iQ a win-win. 


“This process has opened up our enrollment significantly. I strongly believe this has made our program more attractive to students comparing programs.”

--Alfred G. Warner, Ph.D., Academic Program Chair, MBA Program, Penn State Behrend,
MBA iQ client since 2015

“Instead of spending a year’s worth of time they are spending 2-3 months at 10 hours a week of effort and are getting prepared in the way they need to be prepared. Students routinely tell us they feel prepared, and we see them doing well in the classroom. MBA iQ gives us a competitive edge.”

--Eric Robbins, Administrative Program Chair, MBA Program, Penn State Behrend
