Have you ever wondered what the most successful business executives around the world have in common? The answer is the right skills and attitude to be a great leader.
An MBA degree is your single best way to gain the necessary skillset and confidence for a radical career switch, a top management position, or a double increase in salary over a period of three years1. The opportunity to learn together with like-minded professionals from around the world will bolster your network, broaden your career prospects, and present you with opportunities to turn your entrepreneurial ideas into business ventures.
Access MBA gives business professionals the chance to talk in person about leading international MBA programmes with representatives of some of the most respected business schools in the world.
By registering for the One-to-One MBA event, your profile will be carefully matched and selected for individual meetings with the business schools that correspond to your expectations.
On the day of the event, you will:
– Meet Admissions Directors during private 20-minute One-to-One meetings
– Take part in Panel Discussions featuring school representatives and alumni
– Get advice and support for MBA preparation from our Access MBA consulting team
– Obtain GMAT and scholarship information
– Gain insight into the MBA admissions process
The Access MBA Team provides a unique consulting service to each qualified candidate. For ten years now, our in-house MBA experts have invested considerable time evaluating each candidate’s registration profile to better assess and advise individuals on their MBA project. Access to the event is upon invitation only and the selection process is conducted by an internal team of 10 highly experienced consultants led by Dr. Kalin Yanev, PhD in Psychology.
The MBA is designed for business professionals who hold at least a Bachelor degree or equivalent and are fluent in English. Potential applicants should have a minimum of 2 to 3 years of relevant work experience after graduation. The places at our event being limited to an average of 15 individual meetings per business school Admissions Officer, the Access MBA Committee applies further selection criteria based on the suitability of candidates’ profiles to the admissions requirements of the attending schools.
After completing an online registration form, our MBA experts review each registrant’s profile and call the most qualified candidates to gain a detailed understanding of each individual’s MBA project, assess their motivation and help them identify their options. Following this conversation, which is conducted in English, our Candidate Managers evaluate the MBA candidate’s preferences and requirements, and match the candidate with the business schools attending the event.
The MBA candidates selected for One-to-One meetings subsequently receive a list of school meetings and a specific arrival time at the event. Candidates are able to amend their school meetings list and are welcome to communicate with their dedicated consultant before the event. In the case of late registration or if we are not able to reach a candidate over the phone, we invite the qualified registered candidates to the event at a specific time for an on-site consultation session, in order to determine which schools they should meet at the event.
We recommend that candidates register early to benefit fully from this unique consulting service and come well prepared to the event by reading the profiles of the schools they will meet.
Register online and, ten days before the event, you will receive a free profile evaluation and a personalised consultation to help you prepare for your One-to-One meetings
