International MBA event to be held in Bucharest on November 14

Newsroom 05/11/2015 | 10:01

The Access MBA Tour, worldwide leader in One-to-One business education events, will return to Bucharest on November 14 at Radisson BLU Hotel, the organiser Advent Group announced.

“Access MBA is designed to bridge the distance between business executives and elite MBA programmes from around the world through personalised One-to-One meetings between candidates and school representatives” – Christophe Coutat, Advent Group’s Managing Director, said.

The One-to-One meetings enable business professionals to find a top MBA programme that corresponds to their background and expectations. Each MBA candidate undergoes a selection and matching process by business education experts. Qualifying attendees are then given a custom event agenda for a series of 25-minute long meetings with admissions directors.

The event features top international business schools from Europe and North America, as well as prestigious local institutions. Candidates can expect to meet representatives from schools such as Vienna University of Economics and Business WU Executive Academy, Duke University, HEC Paris, IESE and University of Manchester. It is expected that the gathering will be attended by up to 400 qualified MBA candidates from Bucharest and elsewhere around the country.

The event is part of Access MBA’s Fall Tour, which features 125 international business schools and takes place in 34 cities across the world.

In addition to the private One-to-One meetings with admission officers, candidates can receive MBA preparation support, obtain GMAT and scholarship information, gain insight into the MBA admissions process, and participate in Panel Discussions featuring school representatives and alumni.

The highly sought-after Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree prepares business professionals for top managerial roles. In its 2015 Corporate Recruiters Survey report, the US-based Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) claims that up to 85 percent of companies worldwide plan to hire MBA graduates – a growing trend which has seen an increase of 22 percent over a five-year period. In addition, three out of four companies claim that they plan to recruit on the premises of business schools, reinforcing the notion of career progression as a core advantage of MBA education. Salaries in 2015 have also seen a surge, reaching the 100,000 USD milestone in the US. Globally, more than half of employers plan to increase starting salaries for new MBA hires in 2015, either at the rate of inflation (30 percent of companies) or higher (21 percent)”, according to the report.


Event Registration

In order to be selected for the One-to-One meetings, candidates are required to register on well in advance of the event date (at least 5 days before). Online registration is free of charge.
