The Access MBA Tour is a series of One-to-One events connecting qualified candidates with admissions directors through personal, face-to-face meetings. The innovative event concept was founded by Advent Group in 2004 and has set a new standard for educational events in the industry. The tour currently visits over 55 countries in Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, North America, Asia, and Africa.
At each event, Access MBA matches selected candidates with top-ranked international business schools. Through a targeted marketing campaign via influential local and global media, approximately 350 potential MBA applicants register on the Access MBA website for each event. Only the most qualified are invited to each event to meet with school representatives, according to the admissions criteria and requirements of the business schools.
Candidate profiles are screened by a team of in-house business education experts. Qualified candidates are contacted by e-mail or telephone in order to identify the best business school programmes for them. These candidates are then matched with participating schools, with whom they meet at the event in a series of 20-minute One-to-One meetings. In this way, MBA candidates only spend time with those schools that correspond to their needs and expectations. Access MBA holds approximately 70 One-to-One events per year, with each taking place in luxury five-star hotels.
