Eliot Ingram, Co-Founder and CEO
Eliot Ingram has spent over 21 years in the field of MBA admissions. In 1994, Ingram helped launch MBA Multi-App, which quickly became the leading software for applying to business schools. In his senior management role, Ingram built strong relationships with admissions officers at the top 50 business schools in the U.S. He also gained exposure to tens of thousands of MBA applicants, which allowed him to develop a strong understanding of the admissions process from both the student and the school perspective.
After graduating with an MBA from Wharton in 1999, Ingram formed a consulting firm advising early-stage technology companies on their marketing and business development strategies. In late 2001, Ingram co-founded Clear Admit. For the past fourteen years at Clear Admit, Ingram’s combination of admissions expertise, marketing experience and editing skills has enabled him to help hundreds of applicants gain admission to top MBA programs. In addition, Ingram has helped grow Clear Admit into a leading source of news, advice and resources for MBA applicants.
Ingram holds a BA in Economics & Political Science from Swarthmore College and an MBA from the Wharton School.
