Athena Mentor: International University Admissions Counseling

Discreet. Personalized. Successful.


We care for the whole person. Our students become the kind of people who thrive at the world’s best colleges. We specialize in advising international baccalaureate students and students from national degree programs who aim at top universities in the U.K. or U.S., and who often wish to keep open their options in their home countries. Our best advice: leverage your international experience in a meaningful way, and start early!

MBA and Professional

MBA: it’s the most sought-after degree for the world’s movers and shakers. But not all business degrees are the same! Is a one- or a two-year program right for you? Europe, the U.K. or U.S.? Should you rather apply for a specialized master’s in finance, international management or hospitality? How soon should you apply? And how do you get into a truly top business or professional program?

Who is Athena Mentor?

For 10 years, Athena Mentor has counseled, trained and inspired young people. Our staff specialists provide targeted assistance in math, science and art; but all admissions counseling is done by Dr. Marlena Corcoran personally. Dr. Corcoran has studied, taught and done research at academic institutions to which you may aspire: Brown, Harvard, Princeton, Oxford, the École normale supérieure and CNRS . . . She has visited dozens of universities in the U.S., U.K, Europe and Asia. Dr. Corcoran understands your global concerns: she was born in New York, has travelled widely and has lived in Europe for almost 20 years.
