Full-time MBA Fair To Be Held On November 9th and 10th And Executive MBA Fair To Be Held On November 11th
November 2, 2011

New York, NY—The Economist’s Online Fairs business will hold three days
of graduate education fairs in early November. The first fair, which
focuses on full-time MBA programs, will be held on November 9th and
10th. The second fair, which is devoted to executive MBAs, will take
place on November 11th. Interested participants can log on from
anywhere and can register for free on the Full-time MBA website (
http://registermbafair.whichmba.com/?source=catprep ) and on the
Executive MBA ( http://registerembafair.whichmba.com/?source=catprep )
website.
Both fairs provide a unique opportunity for prospective students to
interact with admissions officers from schools around the world. Fair
attendees will also be able to speak with alumni from those schools to
better understand daily life as a student. Visitors can watch Bill
Ridgers, The Economist’s Business Education Editor, interview full-time
and executive MBA alumni in a taped panel discussion.
“Choosing the right school is an important part of the business school
decision process,” said Isaac Showman, Vice-President and Head of Online
Fairs. “The fairs we’ve created allow prospective students to interact
with and learn as much as possible about the exhibiting schools,
enabling students to make more informed decisions about what’s right for
them.”

A variety of well-known universities will take part in each fair.
TiasNimbas, University of Bath, University of New South Wales
(Australia), University of California- Riverside, and the University of
Hong Kong are among those participating in the MBA Fair. Darden School
of Business, Georgia Southern University and the International
University of Monaco will have exhibits in the Executive MBA Fair.
