Calling all business school applicants targeting Fall 2021: We’re launching a webinar series this summer – the Clear Admit MBA Admissions Academy – and you’re invited!

Your dedicated admissions experts, Graham Richmond and Alex Brown, will be hosting a series of six webinars to teach you everything you’ll need to maximize your chances of success in the 2020-2021 admissions season. Each hour-long webinar will begin at 12 p.m. EDT.

These webinars will build on each other and are designed to be taken as a complete series (though you’re welcome to attend a la carte if you’re not able to commit to all six). We’ll also be providing opportunities for you to connect with your “classmates” throughout the summer.
