Betsy Massar Master Admissions

Betsy Massar

Betsy Massar founded Master Admissions back in 2009 and has worked with hundreds of candidates on getting into the top business schools in the world. She was one of the pioneering women graduates of Harvard Business School, worked on Wall Street and in Asia, and has been a long-time communications coach at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.


Betsy Massar worked for Goldman Sachs right out of business school and has spent most of her career in and around the financial industry, working for both investment banks and investment management firms. Before moving to the Bay Area, she lived in Taiwan, Singapore, and Hong Kong for 10 years.


At Stanford, drawing on her skills from her time as a writer, journalist, and editor, she advised Stanford MBA students on the Critical Analytical Thinking course and coached first and second year students on their resumes and presentation skills.


Betsy Massar is a lifetime member of the Hong Kong Foreign Correspondents Club, and when not counseling applicants for Master Admissions, ice skates regularly and herds cats as president-elect of the Harvard Club of San Francisco, the third largest Harvard alumni association in the world.
