Today a master’s degree has become a valuable asset to have under your belt, with its balanced blend of theory, practice and networking, it puts applicants in another league.

Before reaping the benefits of the degree and taking advantage of positive employment trends and diverse career prospects, the process of selecting the right business school requires research and reflection. This is why face to face meetings with admissions directors are crucial to the selection process:
1. Learn how each program fits your goals
Determined graduate school applicants should take the opportunity to talk with university representatives one-on-one in order to find out if the MBA programme will help them reach their personal and professional goals. In addition, the meetings can portray the personality and approach of a school and show if they are compatible with the applicants’ expectations. Business school representatives also provide feedback on how competitive it is to get admitted.
2. Explore the programs that best fulfil your expectations
The Access MBA One-to-One event enables prospective students to meet the representatives of business schools that correspond to their professional background and expectations. The schools and the candidates are already familiar with one another and each 20-minute meeting is spent discussing the topics that matter the most. The event provides the unique opportunity for potential applicants to talk in-person to international business school representatives.
3. Benefit from real-time professional guidance
Getting a graduate degree is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and prospective applicants can take advantage of expert advice individually or during workshops and presentations. Event participants can receive free, individual consulting on any aspect of selecting where to study, how to prepare for admission tests (TOEFL, IELTS, GMAT, GRE), funding options available, visa requirements, and winning application strategies.
