Practice LLC is a closely-held educational services firm providing career development, culture and language transition, and academic and professional hard-skills training to newly-admitted business school students.

The firm was founded in 2012 by Ivan Kerbel, a Wharton MBA alumnus and higher education administrator who served as Director of the Career Development Office at The Yale School of Management and as a Sr. Associate Director in Wharton’s MBA Career Management Office.

The Practice MBA® Summer Forum is co-developed and co-delivered annually by a group of peer faculty members who have extensive experience working with elite MBAs.

Our vision for Summer Forum is to offer practical skills and tools that we know will improve performance and accelerate learning in the MBA context, as well as to share insights and insider perspectives that will enable students to start business school on a solid footing and to achieve their goals.

Each year, we select approximately six MBA Fellows, graduates of the most recent full-time class of MBA students at a range of schools, to join Summer Forum for its duration and to serve as teaching assistants and student mentors for all program participants.
