All about the MBA tour

The MBA Tour is one of the most renowned educational events in the world. The MBA tour’s purpose is to provide MBA aspirants an opportunity to get good quality and genuine information by direct interaction with the concerned b-schools.

This is a good opportunity to establish personal contact with your target b-schools
  5. Individual school presentations – Some schools schedule for special information sessions about their programs. If some of your targeted schools are doing this, it gives you a better opportunity to talk at a closer level.

  2. Take your latest resume, with a photograph on it and business –cards along. Give your resume and business cards at counters where you have interest and also good interaction with the b-school team.
  3. Don’t disperse the effort – There is no point talking to schools which do not map to your choice due to whatever reasons. Make sure that you interact well with select schools.
