About Magoosh

Magoosh is a play on the Persian word “Magush,” which means “one who is highly-learned, wise and generous.” Magoosh’s team is self-described as being, “a bunch of education nerds who get super stoked about helping students achieve their academic dreams.”

Back in 2008, co-founders Pejman Pour-Moezzi and Vikram Shenoy first began working on the concept of Magoosh, as managing test preparations with crowdsourced questions and answers. Later in 2009, their focus shifted towards an expert-powered preparatory platform, rather than a people-propelled experience, and the company was officially launched.


Magoosh is an admissions prep company with an informative blog, offering a 7-day free trial and a variety of guarantees promising improved test scores and more efficient learning methods. They also have targeted study schedules that evaluate when it’s best for a particular student to begin studying and times dependent upon when you’re the most motivated. This information will guide the learner more effectively up through the day of testing.

    Magoosh is great for do it yourself applicants. The key to it are the explanations after you get a question wrong. Sometimes when just doing the Official GMAT books you have No clue why you were wrong. Magoosh explains Everything and this helps build a better base of uderstanding. Also compared to other test companies the price is a steal, can’t hurt to try this considering a lot of applications to programs are more expensive.

    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Keep taking the gmat until you received the score you want. Admissions is not as hard as they make it seem and it is a holistic view but relax About it all and if YOU have the test score you want it makes you much more cOnfident in the interview.
