Welcome to fxMBAconsulting.

My name is Leah Derus. I'm an MIT Sloan MBA who has been helping clients gain entry to top U.S. and European MBA and EMBA programs since 2009. There are no tricks, shortcuts, or secret handshakes for getting into a top business school. What works is presenting a compelling story - and that happens to be my speciality.

In addition to services like mock interviews or hourly advising, I offer two types of editing services: Content Review: You write. I provide tactical advice that you implement. Content Creation. We brainstorm. I write. (My writing has been featured in Harvard's Essay Guide).

  • Duke Fuqua Admit

    Leah’s advice, guidance and sheer hard work throughout my application process were absolutely critical to the final outcome. My GMAT score of 680 was definitely a weak point but she helped me enhance the rest of my profile to combat that weakness. As a British female with a background in investment management and tech entrepreneurship, Leah was key to helping me turn my past into a truly compelling story and articulate my future ambitions.

  • HBS Admit

    Simply put, the admissions process is not fun. Leah somehow made the entire process bearable, even at times fun. I went into the process thinking I knew what I was doing but it helps so much to have someone on the other end, listening every step of the way, and helping you uncover things about yourself you never knew or would have overlooked.

    I got an interview invite to HBS with a below average GMAT and that is thanks to Leah.

  • Wharton EMBA Admit

    Leah helped me dig deeply into my experience and come up with fantastic stories. The mock interviews are really helpful. Before my EMBA application, I hadn't interviewed in years.

    The mock interview process helped me build my repertoire of stories and gave me a sense of how EMBA interviews work. I would recommend Leah to any friend with their sights set on an EMBA program.
