MBA Tour Dates and Cities (2019)

When we began writing our research guide, the motivation was to have an alternative to MBA tours where business school’s PR stunts are compensated with an objective analysis that includes latest trends in the job market, base salary and bonus fluctuations, and strengths of each business school. Although the response has been overwhelming, while we began guiding applicants through all-in-one Essay Review, Resume Editing and Profile Evaluation service, a point of contact became all too important to ignore. Applicants found the networking with Alumni post MBA Tours to be valuable sessions to get an insider perspective about the program. Some remained within the shell of the marketing gimmick while most opened up and offered interesting insights and even discouraged some applicants from applying.

We have used several such interactions as narratives while editing the essays. The MBA Tours have not only transformed from a ‘fit analysis’ sessions but became valuable ‘anecdote’ collecting machines. The ‘extra’ mile that you went in finding the fit or collecting information that is not obvious in employment report or our research guides became a key indicator in measuring an applicant’s motivation to join an MBA program. We rarely put effort into finding out about a brand, if at some level, we don’t believe in it.

The QS team and The MBA Tour dominates and still offers the most events around the world. However, the role of Access MBA and Poet & Quant’s Centre Court events cannot be ignored. In terms of the sheer number of events, QS is way ahead, capturing the breadth of the world. So if you are from an underrepresented part of the world, the chance that a QS event will reach your city is high. For European applicants, Access MBA offers the most events while for the most evenly spread out schedule, The MBA Tour is your go-to event. Centre Court stands out by bringing top schools (Stanford, Wharton, Booth, Kellogg, MIT, and LBS) into the event – something that we have rarely seen in other events.

To help you attend the right events for 2019, we have collected the schedules for QS Events, The MBA Tour, and Access MBA Events. Centre Court events are traditionally conducted in September (Los Angeles, Houston, Toronto, Chicago, Washington DC and New York City), March (London) and June (Boston). We will update the event dates when the team announces them for Sep 2019.
