The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) asked Adfero to help perspective students realize how business skills transfer to any pursuit.

On GMAC’s site, users start by identifying their motivator: Improving global health. Protecting the environment. Making the world a safer place. Next, they deep dive into field-specific careers, ones where an MBA puts them a step ahead of their competition. To maximize chances for user engagement, we designed the tool and its content for students starting their MBA journey and those further down the degree path.
