Team Featured in

Fortuna - Media Logos 2.001



I truly felt that Fortuna went above and beyond what was promised; they were generous with their time, their network, their advice, and their experience. I would consider them more than coaches, but friends, and recommend the Fortuna team 100%, wholeheartedly!

Admitted to Stanford GSB with full scholarship, MIT Sloan with $110,000 scholarship, and Wharton with $60,000 scholarship

Still can’t believe it, I got in at INSEAD!  Fortuna’s advice was invaluable in helping me craft my application.  With timely and thorough feedback, I was able to draw upon the right experiences that allowed me to put my best foot forward. I would highly recommend this experience to any prospective applicants.

S.V., Ottawa – Admitted to INSEAD

You have first-hand knowledge of the admissions process (and not in a secondary role as many others) and can leverage that experience.
You are also a fun team to work with. Working for months on your applications can be stressful so this makes a difference.

J.F., Philadelphia – Admitted to Stanford GSB

Working with Fortuna is like having Warren Buffett as your personal financial advisor.

D.B., London – Admitted to HBS

I have been admitted to Stanford! This would never have been possible without your help. Beyond helping me correct the structure of the essays you helped me push my thinking especially on the ‘what matters most to me’ question.
