GMAC Hosts Virtual MBA Fair
Attention prospective MBA students: here’s a convenient and cost-free opportunity to interact with dozens of the world’s top business schools during a global online event developed and managed by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC).
Coming up on November 22-23, 2010, the GMATCH Virtual MBA Fair will feature more than 40 participating B-schools, including London Business School, INSEAD, the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, the UCLA Anderson School of Management, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and Nanyang Business School.
GMATCH uses virtual booths and a multimedia auditorium stocked with material about each participating school’s programs, as well as management education in general. Prospective applicants can use webcams for “face-to-face” interaction with admissions representatives, alumni and students.
This global virtual fair will be open for four hours on each of the two days it occurs and is structured so people in different time zones may participate when it is most convenient for them. The November 22 session is optimal for people in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The session set for November 23 is aimed at individuals in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Pacific Islands.
“Today’s global economy means international recruitment is particularly important for MBA programs around the world,” says Julia Tyler, GMAC’s executive vice president of member services and school marketing. “GMAC is pleased to play a key role in helping business schools and students tap the power of technology to connect with each other conveniently and effectively, no matter where they happen to be.”
