UPDATE #1: This event is more of an opportunity for us to meet and network with those heading up graduate school programs (rather than it being a "traditional" Meetup, in the sense that we meet and "do" something together). As such, there really is no plan for the event on my end, other than what QS World MBA Tour (the host of the event) has on the agenda. They approached me with this offer, and I felt it would be a good thing to pass along to our members who might be interested. Don't forget, for free admission, you must follow the instructions listed in the event posting below!
Thinking about getting an MBA? Want to apply for $1.2 million in exclusive scholarships?
Then mark Thursday, September 19th on your calendar – that's when the QS World MBA Tour comes to town!
If you are considering going for an MBA in the near future, then this is a must-see event. It only happens twice a year and more than 30 top ranked MBA schools from the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and Europe will be presenting their MBA programs; the full A-Z of subjects are on offer.
I've made special arrangements with the host of this event, QS World MBA Tour, to give our members only FREE admission (normally $15 at the door) by following the directions near the bottom of this event posting. It’s a great opportunity to attend seminars, meet alumni and ask questions directly to admissions directors from universities such as George Washington, UCLA, Berkeley, University of Virginia, Penn State, plus many more.
