Where do you begin?
The foundation of a successful MBA application is self-knowledge combined with school research. If you’ve been reading this blog, you’ve seen that concept before.
To start learning about the different programs, begin at your computer. Review the school web sites and Accepted’s b-school zones.
After developing a list of schools that interest you, take advantage of MBA fairs and school receptions to go into greater depth. MBA fairs are a valuable source of information and offer a forum where you can also interact with school representatives.
In fact, the upcoming MBA Tour events are a great opportunity for fall applicants to proceed with this initial research. The MBA Tour will start off in New York on July 23, travel through Washington DC, Boston, Atlanta, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, and end in Houston on August 4. If you’re not in the US, check out their events outside the US too.
Take advantage of the opportunity to learn more about top MBA programs, meet representatives, and get the information you need to distinguish between the different programs and focus your efforts. It is a great place to start!
