The MBA: Five reasons why you should take it personally
The prestigious Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree has become an important contribution to career development over the last century. It has gained a sound reputation beyond the corporate world in almost every professional field and industry, and across every continent. Top international business schools will meet talents through one-to-one meetings in Budapest on May 17 at the event that is partnered by the Budapest Business Journal.
Today, hundreds of thousands of business professionals actively seek admission to business schools. At the same time, top international MBA programs also invest time in personally communicating with prospective applicants in order to build a diverse MBA class and alumni network.
The process of MBA selection requires much research and reflection. Here is why in-person MBA meetings are crucial to the selection process.
1. The MBA is a personal commitment
Deciding to do an MBA is a matter for career, lifestyle and future development. The personality and approach of a school are important factors for MBA candidates to consider. How different MBA programs match one’s expectations is easily discernible by speaking with their representatives in person.
2. Business meetings with business schools
Determined MBA applicants take the opportunity to talk business with MBA representatives one-on-one. They find out which business schools will enable them to reach their personal and professional goals. MBA meetings also allow applicants to receive feedback on how competitive it is to get admitted to the school.
3. 25 constructive minutes
Access MBA’s One-to-One event enables professionals to meet the representatives of schools that were carefully selected to correspond to their professional background and expectations. Thus, the school and the MBA candidate are already familiar with one another and each 25-minute meeting is spent discussing the topics that matter most.
4. Gain an admissions advantage
One-to-One MBA event participants get a sneak preview of their chances for admission by asking the right questions and putting forward their best presentation skills. Among the top-ranked, and thus most competitive, business schools participating in the Access MBA events in India are:
- IE Business School
- WU Executive Academy
- Corvinus Business School
- Frankfurt School of Finance and Management
5. Real-time professional guidance
Getting an MBA degree is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and MBA applicants appreciate expert advice. Before, after and in-between the business school meetings, event visitors can receive free MBA consulting on any aspect of MBA selection, GMAT preparation, funding options and MBA application strategies to help guarantee a successful business education investment.
