Over the course of 49 events, the 2018 Access MBA Fall Tour will guide the most ambitious business professionals to their dream MBA degree and to new career heights. Read on to find out how you can benefit from the tour and prepare to make the most from meeting top international business schools.
Trotting the globe
Between August and December, the Access MBA Fall Tour will make it possible for professionals from five continents and 40 countries 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. Business professionals in Frankfurt, Tokyo, and Ottawa will soon have the chance to meet leading international business schools during One-to-One and small group meetings.
Tailored to your educational needs
If an MBA degree is on your career development plan, make sure to join an Access MBA event and experience the most appreciated feature of the format –personal meetings with international business schools that best match your preferences, career goals, and potential for growth. For that reason, the professional background and individual requirements of each One-to-One participant are assessed by Access MBA’s experienced consultants before the event. The evaluation allows business professionals to meet the representatives of those programmes that correspond closely to what each attendee is looking for. Future MBA applicants also get personalized guidance regarding their choice of programme, as well as GMAT and scholarship information from admissions and test preparation experts.
The Access MBA Tour offers aspirants the chance to meet top business schools in their home countries. 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!
In addition, an innovative format has been introduced to serve high-profile prospective Executive MBA (EMBA) applicants. In 2018, the Access EMBA Fall Tour will visit London, Paris, Dublin, and Abu Dhabi where experienced business executives will have the opportunity to meet admissions’ directors from some of the world’s top ranked Executive MBA programmes.
Diversity of top international business schools
Access MBA and EMBA attendees gain all the important programme and application details directly from some of the world’s best business schools. It is worth noting that most of them 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 and you can also explore a wide range of study destinations. You can expect to meet admissions’ directors of MBA programmes in Austria, 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 Saïd Business School and Cass Business School (UK), INSEAD and HEC Paris (France), ESADE (Spain), University of Chicago Booth School of Business (US/UK) and many more.
How to get invited to One-to-One MBA meetings
Access MBA One-to-One events welcome professionals aspiring to MBA studies and managerial or entrepreneurial careers, who have a Bachelor’s or a Masters degree, over two years of full-time work experience, and are fluent in English. Senior professionals with more than eight years of work experience who are committed to senior business growth should consider attending an Access EMBA event.

You are strongly encouraged to review the school profiles and programmes before your meetings so that you can benefit as much as possible from the event.
