Brandon Wu Biography 

Founder/owner of a creative entertainment studio, Brandon Wu is a 32-year-old entrepreneur who believes that everything is possible. Failing the SAT in high school did not stop him from getting into the university of his dreams. After two transfers and countless hours of hard work he eventually graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, with an Economics degree. (BA Econ,2002 

After university Brandon enjoyed spending most of his energy in the high-tech industry working with passionate artists and intelligent engineers. However, in the cold San Francisco February of 2005, he decided to leave and pursue new opportunities in the world of business just one month before the deadline for all the business schools he wanted to apply. With so much to study for the GMAT, and not much time, he developed a unique way to study that enabled him to score 780 (99 percentile) on the GMAT within a short amount of time. He received his MBA from Marshall School of Business (University of Southern California) with a scholarship.

After business school, Brandon worked as a Manager in the strategy division at the Sony headquarters in Tokyo where he spent much of his time with top executives from all over the world incubating new ideas and analyzing existing businesses. While at Sony Brandon was featured on Sony’s global website as a success story of Sony’s MBA Program. 30 DAY GMAT SUCCESS was written during these years in Japan. Everyday after work, Brandon would find a quiet coffee shop, and write down the journey he took while preparing for the GMAT hoping that his experience would one day benefit others who are in the similar dire situation he once was with just one month left to prepare for the GMAT.

Brandon left Sony in December 2009 to follow his entrepreneurial heart and start two businesses. He now lives in sunny Seattle.

Brandon Wu featured in United Daily News

Brandon Wu GMAT 780


This week Brandon was asked to give an interview about his high GMAT score to United Daily news – the biggest paper in Taiwan!

His advice is well known by now – get that test booked, and once you have the date on your calendar, study smart and stay focused.

Don’t spend months and months learning and relearning the same things, condense your studies and with the right study plan and lots of Official Guide practice tests, you can improve your score rapidly and effectively. I don’t have to remind you that he scored a 780 with just 30 days of study.

Wow!

Brandon will be in Taipei until the end of April before flying back to Los Angeles.

Author of 30 Day GMAT Success, Brandon Wu, was invited to give a talk at the US Education Information Center yesterday evening. He was asked to talk about his success at taking the GMAT and his business school experience to Taiwanese students who are interested in pursuing an MBA in the United States. And what a hit the workshop was!

Brandon began with a brief overview of his career so far and where his MBA experience fit into it. This was followed by GMAT taking tips, study advice and a breakdown of his incredibly effective and unique study plan.
