We understand the challenges candidates face as they seek to obtain an MBA degree. That’s why we at Access MBA have always stood by aspirants and supported them with a wide range of incentives designed to help them enrol in their dream programme. To reward commitment and ambition, we give candidates who have participated in at least three One-to-One meetings access to all available incentives (see below).
About this event
One-to-One Meetings with the World's Top Business Schools
The Access MBA Tour is a series of One-to-One events connecting qualified candidates with admissions directors of top business schools through face-to-face and online meetings. The Tour helps aspiring business leaders start building a solid and sustainable career path.
On the day of the Access MBA event, you will:
- Meet admissions directors during 20-minute One-to-One and small group meetings
- Take part in panel discussions featuring school representatives and alumni
- Receive advice and support from the Access MBA consulting team, as well as GMAT and scholarship information
How to Participate
Participation is free of charge and is by invitation only. Here is how it works:
Step 1: Sign up and complete the online registration form, preferably at least 10 days before the event. Then, we review each profile and call the candidates to gain a detailed understanding of their MBA projects, assess their motivation, and help them identify their options. The conversation is conducted in English.
Step 2: After that, we evaluate each MBA candidate’s preferences and requirements and match them with the most appropriate business schools.
Step 3: Those selected for One-to-One meetings receive a list of their scheduled meetings with business schools. Candidates can change the schools in the list by turning to their dedicated consultant.
Step 4: Participate in the event and find the best university for your future.
In the event of late registration or if we are not able to reach selected candidates over the phone, we offer to consult them on the day of the event in order to determine which schools they can meet.
"The format is quite compact, with many schools at the same time and place, and I had the opportunity to ask questions and get answers one-on-one right away."
"The organization of the event was impressive – all of my meetings started on time. The discussions made me want to be a student at two of the participating business schools!"
"My meetings with the business schools were very helpful; definitely better and more efficient than a fair. I will apply to one of the schools that I met today."

Each attendee receives the Access MBA Guide latest edition & Admissions book by ClearAdmit. Attend 3+ meetings for a chance to win a GMAT course, $1000 scholarship, plus other discounts and incentives for consulting strategy sessions, test prep, and more.
Before the event, we recommend you learn the main info about the MBA programs on your schedule. This allows your meetings to be spent on questions beyond the basics. Deeper, productive conversations with school representatives is what this event is all about.
You’ll leverage the extensive knowledge of MBA Admissions Directors that’s most relevant to your own experience and interests. This is far beyond what any website could capture! Alumni panels and on-site industry experts arm you with insights to make the best possible choices in your journey to business school.
We’ll connect with you before the event to get to know your profile, interests, as well as any programs you want to meet with. This helps us to build your individual schedule of meetings. Our team is always available to make changes to your schedule if needed.
You’ll receive a schedule with your start time once you register. The full event runs for about 4-5 hours. School meetings are 20-25 minutes each. Most attendees meet with at least 3 schools, as well as participate in a few workshops and panels.
There’s no dress code, but we recommend business casual to make a good first impression.
Attendees must have a bachelor’s degree and a minimum 1-2 years of professional work experience. MBA programs at the event typically require between 2-8 years of work experience (after graduating undergrad). Requirements differ program to program.
