The Economist’s Which MBA? MBA Fair, which were held online on September 7th and 8th, provided inside access to admissions officers from business schools all over the United States and the world, including Canada, the UK, Australia and Singapore. Webinars addressed how application decisions are made, provided application tips and discussed how non-US students could maximize the value of an MBA from a US institution. Chat sessions covered financial aid, grants, GMAT preparation and career resources.
Admissions officers, professors, students and alumni were available to answer questions and address the concerns of MBA candidates. Several organizations offered free downloads such as career guides, GMAT tips, scholarship information and links to resources. Anyone who visited five or more exhibitor booths was entered into a free draw for an iPad 2.
Visitors found “a good amount of information regarding MBA admissions, courses and career prospects” and wrote “this is an amazing event” noting that they were “looking forward to the next online fair.”
The next online MBA fair focuses on Executive MBA programs, for professionals with over 5 years of experience considering an Executive MBA structure. Participating universities are located throughout the US, the UK, Sweden and France. Sign up free at http://registerembafair.whichmba.com for The Economist’s Which MBA?
