If you’re thinking of doing an MBA, virtual events are a great way to evaluate your commitment and kick-start your b-school journey.

Virtual events – such as the QS World MBA Tour and the QS Virtual Connect MBA, run on Zoom – offer students all the advantages of an in-person event, giving you the chance to learn more about business schools around the world without leaving the house.

Here are five reasons why you should attend a virtual MBA event.

They’re free to attend

Searching for the perfect MBA can be daunting, which is why an online event is the perfect way to start: you’ll learn about admissions processes, funding, applications and what makes each program unique. And they’re free, meaning they’re easily accessible for people of all backgrounds.

Spaces fill up quickly, so make sure you register soon to avoid disappointment!

You’ll meet like-minded people

Applying to b-school can be an isolating and intense experience, especially if you don’t know any other applicants. Thankfully, virtual events give you the opportunity to meet other MBA candidates and b-school alumni, making the admissions process less stressful.

You’ll meet b-school recruiters

Both the QS World MBA Tour and the QS Virtual Connect MBA offer you the unique opportunity to sit down virtually with MBA admissions directors from the world’s top business schools. Not only does this give you the option to narrow down your choices, it’s also a great chance to ask detailed questions and build your network.

If you have an eye on a few b-schools, make sure to book your spot in advance. Connecting with recruiters will give you an invaluable advantage for your MBA application. Here are our top tips on how to impress them.

You can consult with career advisors

At QS events, you will get the chance to meet directly with careers advisors and CV coaches. Career advisors will help you set goals and understand which MBA programs would best suit your needs. CV coaches, on the other hand, will offer advice on how to best tailor your CV.

Regardless of your career aspirations, this is a great opportunity to get ahead and stand out in the candidate pool.

You’ll get access to exclusive QS scholarship opportunities

By attending one of our virtual student events, you will be eligible to apply for one of the exclusive scholarships offered by QS and our partner institutions, worth up to US$5.8m.
