Our Latin America tour has concluded, and we are moving on to our next set of events in Asia! Kicking off our Asia Tour on August 28th is our Tokyo MBA Conference, featuring over 30 top business schools from around the world. Considering an MBA? Here’s what you will gain from attending an MBA Tour event:

1:1 Interaction with Admissions Representatives

Why is in-person interaction so important for MBA admissions? Hear from admissions directors participating in our Asia Tour!

MeetUp Sessions provide an opportunity for candidates to meet 1:1 and in small groups with admission directors and alumni from various programs. This allows candidates to make a personal connection with their top-choice schools, get questions answered, and enhance the overall MBA application process by keeping lines of communication open with admissions directors.

MBA Fair gives candidates a chance to personally meet and speak with school representatives and alumni after the panel and school presentations. The fair is an open floor forum to facilitate interaction between students and representatives, where personal and specific questions are encouraged and answered. This opportunity allows candidates to make a great impression on school reps and learn more about how a program appeals to him/herself. Learn from school representatives how to make a memorable impression:

Tip* It is highly recommended at the MBA fair you visit with as many schools as possible. A school that you are unfamiliar with could have the perfect program for your MBA goals.

Collect Information and Easily Compare Programs

MBA Panel Presentations cover valuable business school admissions topics and answer a wide range of MBA applicant questions. The panels consist of professionals with their expertise spanning several topics, including; How Admission Decisions are Made and Financing Your MBA. Receive reliable information directly from school representatives, admission officers, alumni, and other professionals answering any and all possible questions an MBA candidate could have. Learn more about the panel presentations and hear school representatives’ opinions on them:

School Presentations highlight unique program features in a 30-minute session given by admission representatives. These presentations are ideal for candidates to learn detailed information, compare different programs, and prepare for speaking one on one with representatives during the MBA Fair. Hear from school and admission representatives what the differentiating factors between programs are, and uncover program details you may not have known before. Hear about what representatives cover during their school presentations and why candidates shouldn’t miss out:
