The MBA Tour Managing Director Danielle Boland said finding an MBA that aligned with your career goals, work experience, academic history and learning style was critical to making the most of the opportunity an MBA presents.

“There are dozens of great business schools around the world that are all unique for their own reasons,” she said. “Finding the one that will bring out the best in you is critical.”

“The MBA Tour is all about the process of whittling down a diverse range of schools to find the one that is exactly right for you and your circumstances.

“Our smart algorithm will match you with schools that best meet your ambitions for Virtual Meetups. These are intimate, 25-minute face-to-face video sessions with a maximum of six other candidates.

“During these small group discussions, you’ll have the chance to ask questions directly to school representatives to get a better feel for the program and assess if it’s right for you.
