In-Person Meetings with Business Schools: 4 Reasons Why You Should Participate.
Top international business schools meet One-to-One with aspiring business, management, and finance professionals in Rome.
Employment trends are bright for graduates holding an MBA degree or a Masters in Management, Finance, or Accounting. These qualifications are now valued beyond the corporate world in almost any professional field, industry, continent, business or social entrepreneurship, in both the public and the private sectors.
Graduate degrees such as the Masters in Finance (MiF), Management (MiM) or Accounting are advantageous for young professionals in terms of starting salary and position as well as prospects for career development. The prestigious Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is recognised in all parts of the world and industries as the gold standard of management training.
The diversity of reputable MBA and Masters programmes has never been greater, and so are the career paths for aspiring business leaders and professionals. The process of selecting the right business school requires much research and reflection. Individual meetings with business school Admissions Directors are crucial to the selection process, and here is why:
1. Learn how each programme fits your goals
Determined graduate school applicants should take the opportunity to talk with business school representatives one-on-one in order to find out if the school will help them reach their personal and professional goals. In addition, the meetings can portray the personality and approach of a school and show if they are compatible with the applicants’ expectations. Business school representatives also provide feedback on how competitive it is to get admitted.
2. Choose between an MBA or a Masters degree
The MBA and Masters degrees differ in terms of admission requirements, budget, career prospects, and student profiles. For those who are not yet decided, what can be better than meeting MBA and Masters programme representatives at the same time, in the same place? The Access MBA and Access Masters events, taking place in Rome on the 8th of October provide the unique opportunity for potential applicants to talk in-person to international business school representatives from INSEAD, IE Business School, Manchester Business School, ESCP Europe, ESSEC Business School, Hult International Business School, MIP Politecnico di Milano and many others.
3. Meet the schools that will fulfill your expectations
The MBA and Masters One-to-One events enable prospective students to meet the representatives of schools that correspond to their professional background and expectations. The schools and the candidates are already familiar with one another and each 25-minute meeting is spent discussing the topics that matter the most.
4. Benefit from real-time professional guidance
Getting a graduate business degree is an once-in-a-lifetime experience, and prospective applicants appreciate expert advice. Before, after, and in-between the business school meetings, event participants can receive free consulting on any aspect of school selection, GMAT preparation, funding options, and application strategies that guarantee a successful business education investment.
