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.
