Inside The MBA Tour

Before attending an event, start your MBA search by learning your top program preferences and finding your ideal business school with MBA Spotlight Survey!

Survey Benefits:    

• Survey results reveal your top 5 most IMPORTANT PREFERENCES when choosing a business school
• Before your event you receive ALERT MESSAGES from business schools that MATCH your preferences
• At your event you attend a SPECIAL SESSION to meet your matches (exclusively for survey takers)
• FREE ADMISSION to event!

You can take the survey once you register for an event.

At the event, you will participate in unique event formats that help answer your MBA questions and connect you with business schools.

The event starts with: MBA Panel Presentations cover valuable business school admissions topics and answer a wide range of MBA applicant questions. Panelists are experts in the field and admission representatives. Topics include: How Admission Decisions are Made, Managing Your MBA Career Search, and Financing Your MBA. A 2009 Chicago event attendee said, “Prior to attending the MBA Tour, I was slightly intimidated about going back to school to get my MBA full time, however, after sitting through the admissions process panel presentation and meeting with schools reps face to face, I now feel excited and much more empowered.”

Next comes: Individual School Presentations highlight unique program features in a 30-40 minute session given by admission representatives. Use the presentations to learn detailed information, compare different programs, and prepare for speaking one on one with representatives. A 2009 Atlanta event attendee said, “It was a great opportunity for me to learn the specialty of each school from the individual school presentation. The back to back sessions enable me to easily make comparisons among schools.”

Finally: The Open Fair is strategically placed at the end of our MBA event. This allows you to first gather information from the Individual School Presentations and MBA Panel Presentations in order to prepare for speaking one on one with admissions representatives at the Open Fair. During this time, you have the opportunity to meet with admissions representatives and alumni from a large number of programs. This is the perfect time to ask personal questions related to your MBA search and application process. A 2009 Los Angeles attendee said, “It is a golden opportunity to interact with school representatives and alumni alike. It gives lot of insight about the admission process thus opening up the minds of students and allaying many misconceptions that students might have.

Tip: It is highly recommended at the open fair you visit with as many schools as possible. A school that you are unfamiliar with could have the perfect program for your MBA goals.
