Business schools event offers one-stop shopping

Thinking about taking the plunge and going for your MBA? Then you'll want to catch The MBA Tour when it makes its four Canadian stops this fall.
The MBA Tour is an independent organization that brings admission representatives and alumni from business schools in Canada and abroad under one roof to meet with potential MBA students. In a very short time, attendees can compare and contrast different programs and get a feel for the schools.
“I really liked the opportunity to get information that is not posted on websites or brochures,” says one attendee who was at last year's event in Calgary.
The MBA Tour also provides a forum for potential students to personally introduce themselves to the schools. Says Peter von Loesecke, CEO and managing director of The MBA Tour: “Students have the chance to not only have their queries answered, but make a lasting impression that will come to mind when their application letters are being read by the same key decision-makers later on.”
In addition to browsing the “open fair” part of each tour, participants can listen to panel presentations that cover topics such as women and MBAs and how admissions decisions are made. In Vancouver and Toronto, they will also have the opportunity to hear individual school presentations.
The MBA Tour will make the following stops in Canada:
- Calgary - November 8
- Vancouver - November 10
- Toronto - November 13
- Montreal - November 15
