Services for Purchase cont.

Individual School Presentations

Admissions representatives regard the presentations as one of our most useful conference formats. The presentations are an opportunity to showcase your unique program aspects to a group of prospective students. You have 30-35 minutes in a private room to highlight the features of your program. Typically there are three to five other universities presenting in concurrent sessions. Individual School Presentations are now offered at most conferences in 2014 for USD 500 per presentation. *AV is not included in the presentation cost.

MeetUp

We offer dedicated time and space for one to one and small group meetings with top candidates during our conferences. Conferences will have allotted time in a MeetUp designated room to meet with high quality candidates that are preselected and invited by you prior to the event. Our newly re-designed MeetUp 2.0 system makes it easy for you to pre-screen candidates and send meeting invitations.

By using MeetUp you can gain access to detailed candidate information: resume, student interest in your school, student intent to apply to your program, GMAT status, work experience, geographical preference, and more. Use this comprehensive candidate information to help filter through to your ideal candidates!

USD 500 per event, or discounted at USD 100 when purchased with a school presentation.

TheMBATourMatch

A service for schools that do not have the resources or time to find and schedule candidates for MeetUps or MeetUp Networking events. A school will designate what type of candidates to target and we will manage inviting and confirming MeetUps for the event. During the busy travel season, The MBA Tour staff can assist in confirming MeetUps until the day before an event to take advantage of all registrants who are interested in your program and who you are targeting. You will receive a schedule of your MeetUps with student profiles and resumes a few days before the event allowing you enough time for any necessary prep work.

USD 500 per event.

MS Fair

These are 1 to 1.5 hour mini fairs focusing on Specialized Masters programs that take place before the main MBA conference. This a great opportunity for you to target candidates for your MS programs in addition to the MBA program.

Professional and Cultural Activities

Professional activites can range from company vistis to briefings from local partners on the state of education in a certain region. They are a great way to expand you knowledge of your recruiting market and expand your network there.

The MBA Tour plans additional activities on free days during the tour to help you explore you surroundings. These trips are a fun and engaging way to sight see while connecting with your professional colleagues. Past cultural activities have included city tours, dinners out, volunteer work, and day trips.

Event Formats

MBA Fair

The fair is strategically placed at the end of the MBA conferences. This allows candidates to first gather information from the Individual School Presentations and Panel Presentations in order to prepare for speaking one on one with you at the fair. At the MBA Fair, you and your alumni have the opportunity to meet with a large number of applicants in a short period of time.

Panel Presentations

Panel Presentations are 30-40 minute sessions that cover valuable business school admissions topics and answer a wide range of MBA applicant questions. Schools have the opportunity to participate on the panels and share topic advice with a large group of prospective students. Any participating admissions representative can be a panelist; sign up online after registering for events. Topics in the past include: How Admission Decisions are Made, Managing Your MBA Career Search and Financing your MBA. The MBA Tour provides guiding talking points for all panels.

MeetUp Networking Events

Some cities will be MeetUp only events - no MBA fair will take place. The MeetUp Networking format includes panels and a room for one to one and small group MeetUps instead of a fair. Some cities will also include school presentations. This format is geared towards smaller conferences with 100-150 candidates and provides a more intimate environment for connecting with future applicants. You will use the MeetUp system to pre-select and invite candidates to meet with you at this event.

The MBA Tour offers TheMBATourMatch, a premium service where we schedule your MeetUps on your behalf with candidates matching your school's selection criteria. USD 500, see MBATourMatch for more details.
