It’s official, application season is in full swing and that means so are the MBA Tour conferences. This week we are kicking off our US tour with two events, one in Seattle and another in San Francisco! Are you ready for your upcoming event? Do you know how to make the most of the experience? Not to worry, we can help! The MBA Tour and Admit Advantage are co-hosting a webinar this Wednesday, July 15th from 8:00-9:00 pm EDT, to help you prepare for your upcoming MBA conference, so you can get the most out of it.
Throughout the MBA application process how you present yourself is crucial to your success. Just as businesses must sell their products or services to their clients or consumers, you must “sell” yourself to the business schools you apply to. One of the most effective methods and one that is recommended by many of our partners and the admission recruiters, such a Kate Mickle from the University of San Diego, is the elevator pitch.
1: Who should write my recommendation letter?
“Typically business schools will ask that you get a letter of recommendation from an employer, whether that be a current or a previous supervisor, and the reason for that is because employers can give us more information on your fit and readiness for an MBA program.”
What should MBA students take advantage of when looking for a job? Here's some advice from current MBA students and alumni on making the most of your school's resources.
ANSWER THE QUESTION: "WHY OUR MBA?"
The MBA fair portion of the event is your time to personally meet with school and admission representatives and alumni. Get answers directly from the source to any questions you have about school programs, student life, and everything in-between, and make a strong impression while doing so to make yourself a memorable candidate.
A great way to get basic and advanced questions from the source about schools and their programs are from school admission reps and alumni at school presentations and panels. Follow these guidelines to make the most of your time at the various presentations available at The MBA Tour events.
So you took the first step and registered for an MBA Tour event, now what?
