The QS World MBA Tour provides an outstanding opportunity for candidates to meet representatives of the world's leading business schools face to face. It is an unparallelled opportunity to help candidates make informed education and career choices, while giving participating business schools the chance to meet a highly targeted audience of the world's brightest young professionals.
In addition, participants get these great benefits:
The first 100 visitors to arrive at each fair receive a free copy of the QS TopMBA Career Guide, the world's leading publication for MBA candidates, students and graduates. Featuring hundreds of pages of current articles, business school profiles, interviews with employers and advice on applying and career planning, the guide, worth US$20, is a must-have for anybody involved in taking an MBA.
Only those attending a fair are eligible to apply for exclusive QS World MBA Tour scholarships. The scholarship fund will be over US$1.2m in 2011 and includes scholarships from such schools as Chicago GSB, Wharton, IE, MIP, Ashridge and many more. Read more about MBA Scholarships and make sure you apply in time.
During the fair, visitors can participate in free seminars covering essential MBA issues such as: picking the right business school; financing an MBA; taking the GMAT test; preparing a winning application. Also look out for the master classes, held by a leading MBA professor, simulating the MBA classroom experience right there at the fair. Participants will receive details of this by email before the MBA Fair.
Talking face-to-face with school admissions officers and alumni at their tables is the most valuable information source in selecting your future school. You can obtain detailed advice for your applications, as well as scholarship and financing information. Participating business schools are still accepting applications for forthcoming start dates. All participating schools have been informed of your registration and are prepared to meet you.
Some of the participating business schools will contact you to inform you about info sessions or interview opportunities taking place around the MBA Fair. Other schools may invite you to interview or attend such events during the Fair.
Come prepared and you'll make a great impression. Before you meet the schools, it is a good idea to check out their profiles, admissions data (candidate profiles, average GMAT etc) and areas of excellence. You can do all of this research right here on the official World MBA Tour website.
