I was forwarded from a Michigan admissions e-mail to an MBA Tour event coming up. I may go to this event. This event for San Francisco is on Nov 9, Tuesday. Depends on my work situation whether I might go to this one or not.
The other thing in the same e-mail was for the World MBA Tours. And they are coming up quick. I signed up for the Los Angeles one Coming up on Sept 12. Here's the info of what a World MBA Tour is
The World MBA Tour is a unique opportunity for you to meet the admissions officers and alumni of the world's top business schools, and discuss your next education and career steps.
The 11th edition - the World MBA Tour 2004 - is present in over 50 cities in nearly 40 countries, consolidating our market leadership in mature markets and bringing graduate management education to exciting new locations such as Stockholm on the Spring Tour, and Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Guangzhou, Kuala Lumpur and Cairo in the Fall. The Tour enjoys partnerships with leading national media in every location, providing an outstanding opportunity for candidates to research schools and make informed education and career choices, whilst offering the business schools a highly targeted audience of the world's best young professionals. Visitors can also participate in a series of seminars and workshops covering issues such as choosing between specialist post-graduate courses and an MBA, picking the right school, financing an MBA, taking the GMAT test, and preparing a winning application. Information on exclusive scholarships available to finance your MBA program can also be obtained at the fairs.
