Business school is a hefty investment in both time and dollars, so you need to arm yourself with all the information you can about the programs that interest you. After all, you can never know too much!
A great way to learn about several schools in one shot is through MBA fairs, and as luck would have it, today’s the first day of The Economist’s autumnal Virtual MBA Fair. For all of you planning to attend (you should…It’s free and online), try these three strategies for making the most of your time:
- Maximize your chances of winning MBA scholarships (and other prizes like subscriptions to The Economist and gift cards) by attending the fair’s webinars and exhibitors’ booths. Prizes are awarded based on points accumulated from participating in the fair, and webinars and booth-visiting will get you 30 and 10 points each, respectively.
- Make the most of your access to expert advice. The fair’s webinars and one-on-one chats are the most popular aspect of this fair for a reason. Favorite topics include “Common Myths about the GMAT” presented by the Graduate Management Admission Council (a.k.a. the creators of the GMAT), “How to Create a Successful MBA Application” by the head of MBA recruitment at Henley, and “How to use MBA rankings” by Economist editor Bill Ridgers. View the full agenda here.
- Chat with admissions representatives in the exhibitors’ booths. Why? Because these are the very people who review MBA admissions applications for a living. Head over to the fair now to ask them your personal application questions (just make sure you’re registered)!
See you at the fair!
