Welcome to fxMBAconsulting. Whether your sights are set on a full-time, part-time or executive MBA program, I can help you tell your professional story in a way that is concise, clear and (most importantly) authentic.

Leah Derus

I help people craft stories that move their careers, and MBA applications forward. As a former Fulbright scholar with a Bachelor’s in Psychology from La Sorbonne and an MBA from MIT Sloan, I spent the first part of my career in recruiting and marketing.

Through fxMBAconsulting, I’ve worked with countless MBA and Executive MBA applicants over the years, helping them gain acceptance to top business schools like Harvard, Stanford and Wharton. How? By crafting MBA application material (resume, essays, recommendations and interview material) that conveys a coherent, desirable and unique story to the admissions committee.

Outside the MBA application cycle, I work with career-orientated clients at resumeSTORY.builders, I leverage the same toolkit and exacting standards to help my clients write their own ticket in the job market. Over the years I’ve found that taking the time to rethink a career plan or job search, rewrite a resume, polish up a cover letter or learn to convey poise and executive presence in interview, clients goals become their reality.
