ACCESS MBA One-to-One Tour in Zurich
The number of MBA applicants in the world continues to rise. Offering prospective MBA candidates the opportunity to meet face to face with the world's top international business schools, the Access MBA One-to-One event is a unique and effective way to find the right MBA.

Market Trends: the Right Time to Do an MBA

While the economy has slowed in the past two years, business school applications and investments have soared by over 20% each year. Due to the current global financial situation, it is considered the right time for business executives to invest in their careers. While the economy is preparing its recovery, business-minded individuals opt to strengthen their professional profile. Full Time, Part Time, Distance Learning MBA programs have already shown a steady flow of applications. However, business sponsorships and company investments in top-level executive MBA programs may be placed on hold.

In general, the return on investment is high for candidates who earn their MBA at top international business schools. In the Graduate Management Admission Council’s recent study of MBA graduates, the overwhelming majority of MBA alumni were very positive about the value of their MBA, rating it outstanding or excellent.

Helping Candidates to Choose the Right MBA

Qualified professionals are given the chance to meet with business school representatives in private One-to-One meetings. Access MBA advisors help orient candidates towards the appropriate business schools at the event. This orientation and the personal discussions with Admissions Officers are key in selecting the best MBA program for each candidate. This is what differentiates Access MBA from other fair organizers. “The One-to-One meetings are proven to advance candidates in their decision-making process during the event. This is more valuable than basing an MBA program choice on brochures or rankings”, says General Director Christophe Coutat, who founded the Access MBA Tour in 2004.

“We are convinced of the value of the Access MBA 1-2-1 events as we are consistently presented with high-quality candidates who fit our programme and our recruitment goals; many more than we would normally meet at a traditional fair event and with better profiles and motivation,” says Helen Dowd, Admissions Director at Manchester Business School. The school, ranked in the top 20 worldwide, participates in the Access MBA Tour year upon year.

Event attendees

The Access MBA Tour is a targeted event focused on high quality, personalised services for MBA candidates. Candidates who match school’s admissions criteria are selected for One-to-One meetings. Qualified candidates are typically English-speaking individuals with at least 3 years of professional experience and holding a Bachelor’s degree or the equivalent.

Participating Schools

The ACCESS MBA Tour includes over 100 prestigious business schools that are accredited and internationally ranked. Among them, 70% of the Top 100 MBA programs worldwide are featured at the events. Participating schools include HEC Lausanne, Cranfield, IE Business School, Esdae, ESSEC, Kellog WHU, Nyenrode, Copenhagen Business School, Rochester Bern and more
