With its balanced blend of theory, practice, and networking, the Masters degree has become a valuable asset to have under your belt. Whether prospective students are headed to a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree or Masters in Management, Finance, Accounting, or STEM, the future is looking bright for graduates across business-related disciplines.

What is more, the prestigious qualifications are increasingly well regarded in a wide range of non-business fields all over the world as well. Recent Masters and MBA graduates from top international schools continue to be the disruptive and innovative force across any industry, continent, or professional setting.

Before reaping the benefits of the diploma and taking advantage of positive employment trends and diverse career prospects, the process of selecting the right business school requires research and reflection. This is why individual meetings with business school admissions directors are crucial to the selection process:

1. Learn how each programme fits your goals

Determined graduate school applicants should take the opportunity to talk with business school representatives one-on-one in order to find out if the school will help them reach their personal and professional goals. In addition, the meetings can portray the personality and approach of a school and show if they are compatible with the applicants’ expectations. Business school representatives also provide feedback on how competitive it is to get admitted.

2. Choose between an MBA or a Masters degree

The MBA and Masters degrees differ in terms of admission requirements, budget, career prospects, and student profiles. For those who are not yet decided, what can be better than meeting MBA and Masters programme representatives at the same time, in the same place? The Access MBA and Access Masters events, taking place in Budapest on 9th and 10th December, provide the unique opportunity for potential applicants to talk in-person to international business school representatives from Bocconi University, Warwick Business School, University of St. Gallen, IE Business School, ESCP Europe, McGill University – Desautels Faculty of Management , Vienna University of Economics and Business and others.

3. Meet the schools that will fulfill your expectations

The MBA and Masters One-to-One events enable prospective students to meet the representatives of schools that correspond to their professional background and expectations. The schools and the candidates are already familiar with one another and each 20-minute meeting is spent discussing the topics that matter the most. In addition, an Open Fair Session presenting Masters programmes such as STEM and Social Sciences gives applicants the opportunity to get information about degrees which are not necessarily business-related.

4. Benefit from real-time professional guidance

Getting a graduate business degree is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and prospective applicants appreciate expert advice. Before, after, and in-between the business school meetings, event participants can receive free consulting on any aspect of school selection, GMAT preparation, funding options, and application strategies that guarantee a successful business education investment.
