Online MBA Fair Gives Options For Business Students
by Taylor Cotter
Getting a Masters in Business Administration is a big decision. If you’re looking to start an executive track at a corporation, getting an MBA is often the best way to get your foot in the door.
However, getting an MBA requires huge time commitment and effort. Often, current employees who are interested in working on their MBA have to do so online, or at night. Choosing the right MBA school is a big decision, since you need to factor in time, financials, and the value of your degree.
To find the best MBA program for you, consider attending The Economist’s Which MBA? Online Fair, which connects prospective MBA students to business schools around the world.
On September 5-6, 2012, over 40 business schools from North America, Europe, Australia and Asia will be waiting to meet prospective candidates through an online, interactive virtual MBA fair. Visitors can chat with admissions officers one-on-one or in group chat rooms, join live webinars, and download school information.
Researching business schools takes a lot of time and energy. At the Which MBA? Online Fair, visitors can navigate a plethora of information and browse the virtual booths of business schools. Visitors can download brochures and applications or flip through photo galleries and videos. Business school representatives will be available to answer questions via personal instant message, group chat rooms, Skype chat, and webinar presentations.
In February, nearly 4,000 visitors from 142 countries attended the fair. Candidates came from all industries – business, finance, start-ups, marketing, sales, and IT, to name a few.
