English Business Services
English Business Services (EBS), one of the first companies in Italy offering consultancy services to native Italian speakers to help them to succeed in their MBA and graduate school applications, was established in Milano in 2004 by three former corporate managers of American and British nationality, long- time residents of Italy.
EBS prepares candidates for standard aptitude tests such as GMAT, GRE and SAT, and language competency tests such as TOEFL and IELTS. We also help candidates to choose the right business schools and to put together strong applications. Our mission is to help the Italian speakers to gain admittance to the most selective business schools in Italy and abroad, by mastering the skills necessary to excel in the GMAT and language competency test and submitting a strong application We realize that our Italian customers have a different academic and cultural background, so we accomplish our goal using a bicultural and bilingual didactic approach.
