Win an MBA campus visit

Attendees will have the chance to visit a business school of their choice organised and funded by Access MBA. The winner will be picked in a random draw at the end of the Spring Tour season. It is Access MBA’s responsibility to arrange the visit to a university or business school campus selected by the winner and to cover travel and accommodation expenses of up to EUR 1,000.
