Considering an MBA?
Now that you’ve decided an MBA is the next step to reaching your future goals, it’s time for you to find the right school and program to earn your degree. Doing your preliminary research online to gather basic information on various programs is a great start to finding your perfect-fit school, but meeting in-person with an actual representative from the school will allow you to better conduct an in-depth analysis of program details, make a personal connection to your school of interest, and have a firm grasp on your top-choice business schools. All of this can be done by attending an MBA conference hosted by The MBA Tour. Our tours also offer a variety of unique 1:1 and group MeetUps, admissions panels, school presentations, and GMAT strategy sessions.
