The 2019 Access MBA Fall Tour will visit 39 countries between 28 August and 3 December. Its unique One-to-One meetings format gives young professionals the chance to familiarise themselves with top international MBA programmes throughout the world and find the one that will take their career to the next level.
Around the world
The Access MBA Tour, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, will enable professionals from five continents to meet MBA admissions’ directors One-to-One. Two of the cities, Washington D.C. (US) and Buenos Aires (Argentina), will host the tour for the first time, giving business professionals the opportunity to meet leading international business schools during personalised One-to-One and small group meetings.
Finding your best educational fit
When you register for an Access MBA event, you will be able to take advantage of the special feature of the format – the opportunity for personal meetings with international business schools that best match your career preferences. Your professional background and individual requirements will be evaluated by Access MBA’s experienced orientation consultants before the event. On the basis of this evaluation, you can be invited to meet the representatives of those programmes that correspond closely to what you are looking for and take advantage of the other event features. In addition, you will receive personalised advice on programme selection, your admission strategy, as well as GMAT and scholarship information from qualified admissions and test preparation experts.
The opportunity presented by the Access MBA Tour cannot be stressed enough. MBA applicants have the unique chance to meet top business schools in their country of residence. The mere fact that a school has chosen to visit a particular country means that it wants to attract local students and you could be one of them!
An exciting new feature of the tours is that one of the attendees will have the chance to visit a business school of his/her choice organised and funded fully or partially by Access MBA.
Diversity and quality
Participants in the Access MBA Tour receive reliable and up-to-date information about programmes, the application process, scholarships, career prospects and more directly from representatives of some of the world’s top business schools. It is worth noting that most of the participating schools have at least one accreditation from the three top accrediting bodies – AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA. In addition, more than one third of all participating schools boast the prestigious “Triple Crown” accreditation from all three associations.
All MBA programme formats – full-time, part-time, distance, online, blended and modular – are represented at the tour. You can also explore a wide range of study destinations and meet business school representatives from Belgium, Canada, China, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, the Netherlands, the UK, and the US, among others. Attendees will be glad to learn that they will be able to meet representatives of the best performers from the Financial Times Global MBA Ranking including Imperial College Business School (UK), INSEAD and HEC Paris (France), IESE (Spain), IMD (Switzerland) Yale School of Management (US) and many more.
The tour also caters to the needs of experienced business executives considering Executive MBA (EMBA) programmes, with a total of seven boutique EMBA events scheduled to take place in Johannesburg, Brussels, Paris, London, Rome, Geneva, and Abu Dhabi.
