About Us


The Sparrey Consulting Group was founded in 2008 after early research showed that bright young professionals were spending an average of 90 hours completing applications to top-tier MBA programs. Company founder Andrea Sparrey saw an opportunity to save people time, make the process more fun, and most importantly, improve results. 

After helping applicants gain admission to more than 20 schools, including Stanford, HBS, Wharton, Booth, Kellogg, Sloan, Tuck, Columbia, Stern, Haas, INSEAD, and LBS over the past several years, as well as over $16M in scholarship grants, Sparrey Consulting expanded their services by developing programs to aid rising stars at other points in their career.

With a team of seven professionals, Sparrey Consulting Group works with high-performing professionals at every stage of their careers. Our clients have gone on to launch successful businesses, be named to the Forbes 30-under-30, and become top executives in consulting, banking, technology, and non-profits. Using innovative exercises and quantitative tools, group coaching, and one-on-one sessions, we will help you unlock your full potential to achieve your professional goals.

Why work with us?

We want people to view themselves & their careers differently! Our firm works with clients on a one-on-one basis with the goal of building a lasting relationship that challenges you to be at your very best, uncovers best-fit opportunities to develop your strengths, encourages you invest fully in initiatives that we think are essential to your success, and provides accountability and enthusiasm for the process.

Tactically, we begin by creating a customized plan to ensure your application maximizes your chance of reaching your goals at school. From there, we draw out our clients’ strengths and stories they would use to set their individual goals.
