QS World MBA Tour …World’s best and biggest business school fairs
London--(뉴스와이어) 2009년 10월 15일 -- The QS World MBA Tour, featuring hundreds of influential business schools such as visits Seoul, COEX InterContinental Hotel on 2 and 3 of November 2009, featuring a new and innovative way for potential MBA students to meet business school admissions directors one to one.
Connect 1.2.1, which takes place on the 2nd of November, is a new QS product allowing selected MBA candidates half hour one-to-one slots with representatives of business schools attending the fair. This is the closest to a hands-on interview that MBA candidates can have and provides a unique opportunity for school and candidate to assess each other prior to application.
Lizz Fitt, marketing manager of QS Connect 1.2.1, says: “The World MBA Tour allows candidates to gather initial information from several business schools in a short space of time. However, selected students can meet in a private setting with schools of specific interest to them at Connect 1.2.1. Many students have achieved places at desired business schools following a Connect 1.2.1 event.”
Candidates interested to Connect 1.2.1 can apply at http://www.topmba.com/connect . It’s free.
On the next day, the QS World MBA Tour occurs at the same venue. The tour visits over 40 countries with over 360 of the world's international top business schools every year. This suite of educational events has become the world’s most successful event of its kind and has helped place thousands of MBA candidates in top business schools of their choice. Candidates get information on full time, part time and distance learning MBA programs, fees, admissions, scholarships, financial aid, the GMAT test and graduate MBA career opportunities.
In addition, the QS World MBA Tour offers US$1.6million of exclusive scholarships during the fall 2009 season. These scholarships offered by QS as well as by its partner schools - including Duke, USC Marshall, IE Business School - are available only to attendees of the fair.
The fair also provides unique, free expert seminars and admission panels, allowing candidates to direct questions to a number of experts. In selected venues there will also be MBA masterclasses, enabling participants to experience first-hand how lessons are delivered in business schools
The first 200 candidates arriving at the fair will receive a complimentary copy of the QS TopMBA Career Guide, a 350-page publication that includes expert editorial on the MBA industry and a comprehensive directory of the world’s top business schools.
