Applying an approach that resulted in 19 job offers while in business school for the two co-founders, functional business experience and insight experts leading talent initiatives, we created JumpStart. We are here to support career aspirational goals of candidates and pursuing an MBA may be a lever to JumpStart that plan.
Each year, more than 250 individuals join the JumpStart Path2MBA Network including participation in our webinar series and diversity forum. 2/3 of attendees at our inaugural diversity forum are in the graduating MBA class of 2019. The 90% acceptance rate at top MBA programs of JumpStart Network members is very impressive. We are on track for our network to represent 500+ MBA program applications any given year.
