The Access MBA Spring Tour, which will visit 41 countries between January 22 and May 18, will once again offer young professionals the opportunity to get to know in person the diversity of international MBA programmes throughout the world, and find the best fit for their career growth, preferences, and potential.
All around the globe
Between January and May, the Access MBA Spring Tour will enable professionals from five continents to meet MBA admissions’ officers in person. Three of the cities will host the tour for the first time since the creation of the One-to-One event format in 2004 – Stockholm, San Francisco, and Manila. Additionally, Lisbon and Almaty will be returning to the Tour itinerary, so business professionals based in Portugal and Kazakhstan will have the chance to meet leading international business schools during One-to-One and small group meetings.
Finding your best educational fit
If you consider pursuing an MBA degree, make sure to sign up for an Access MBA event and enjoy the core feature of the format – personal meetings with international business schools that best match your career aspirations. Who decides which school would be most suitable to help you reach your individual goals? The professional background and individual requirements of each One-to-One participant are assessed by Access MBA’s experienced orientation consultants before the event. On the basis of this evaluation, business professionals are invited to meet the representatives of those programmes that correspond closely to what they are looking for. In addition, prospective MBA applicants receive personalised advice on their choice of programme, their admission strategy, as well as GMAT and scholarship information from admissions and test preparation experts.
The Access MBA Tour offers aspirants 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. This is a huge opportunity!
Diversity of programmes and top international business schools
The tour is attended by representatives of some of the world’s top business schools who will provide prospective MBA and EMBA applicants with relevant and up-to-date information about programmes, the application process, work-life balance, and more. It is worth noting that most of the participating schools have at least one accreditation from the three distinguished accrediting bodies – AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA. In addition, over one third of all participating schools boast the prestigious “Triple Crown” accreditation from all three associations.
The tour features diverse MBA programme formats – full-time, part-time, distance, online, blended and modular. You can also explore a wide range of study destinations. You can expect to meet admissions’ directors of MBA programmes in Belgium, Canada, China, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, the Netherlands, the UK, and the US, among others. What is more, you will be able to meet some of the best performers from the Financial Times Global MBA Ranking including Imperial College Business School (UK), INSEAD and HEC Paris (France), IESE (Spain), University of San Francisco (US) and many more.
High-profile prospective Executive MBA (EMBA) applicants also stand to benefit. In addition to EMBA programmes taking part in the Access MBA events, the boutique Executive MBA (EMBA) events of the Access EMBA Spring Tour will take place in Brussels, Paris, Amsterdam, and Dubai and welcome experienced business executives to meet admissions’ directors from some of the world’s leading Executive MBA programmes.
