The Access MBA Team provides a unique consulting service to each qualified candidate. Over the past twelve years, our in-house MBA experts have invested considerable time evaluating each candidate’s registration profile to better assess and advise individuals on their MBA project. The business school meetings are upon invitation only, and the selection process is conducted by an internal team of 10 highly experienced consultants led by Dr. Kalin Yanev, PhD in Psychology.
The MBA degree is designed for business professionals who hold at least a Bachelor’s degree or the equivalent, and who are fluent in English. Potential applicants should have a minimum of 2 to 3 years of relevant work experience after graduation. The Access MBA consultants apply further selection criteria based on the suitability of candidates' profiles to the admissions requirements of the participating schools.
After candidates complete the online registration form, our MBA experts review each registrant’s profile and call the most qualified candidates to gain a detailed understanding of each individual's MBA project, assess their motivation, and help them identify their options. Following this conversation, which is conducted in English, our consultants evaluate the MBA candidate’s preferences and requirements, and match the candidate with appropriate business schools.
The MBA candidates selected for One-to-One meetings subsequently receive a list of their scheduled meetings with select business schools. Candidates are able to discuss the school list with their dedicated consultant, and amend it if necessary. In the case of late registration or if we are not able to reach a candidate over the phone, we invite the qualified registered candidates to consultation sessions organised on the first day of the event, in order to determine which schools they should meet at the event.
We recommend that candidates register early to benefit fully from this unique consulting service and prepare for the meetings by reading the profiles of the schools they are scheduled to meet.
