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 ( ) and on the Executive MBA ( ) 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.
