Online registration is highly recommended and beneficial to you for a number of reasons; however, there will be an opportunity for you to register at the event.

Work experience is not required to attend the fair, but most MBA programs require a minimum of two years of work experience. No experience is necessary for you to begin exploring an MBA and whether it fits your professional goals.  

We recommend that you dress professionally or in business casual attire. Your goal is to make a good first impression on the MBA admissions directors that you’ll meet with.

Although not necessary, it is helpful for you to bring a few copies of your resume along with something to take notes on. You can always leave a copy of your resume with the MBA admissions directors that you connect with. You also will likely want to take notes about the MBA programs that you are interested in. 
Why MBA?

There are countless benefits that come along with getting your MBA. Whether you’re looking to start your own business, move up the career ladder, or change industries, an MBA can give you an extra edge! An MBA can also give you the salary increase you’ve been dreaming about. In 2017, the average salary for someone with an MBA in North America was $98,900. Other benefits of an MBA include: gaining a networking that can land you your dream job upon graduation, specializing in a specific industry (i.e. consulting, finance, technology, etc.), developing leadership skills that will make you stand out from the crowd AND MUCH MORE!
