The QS World MBA Tour is returning to Tel Aviv. Some of the world’s top business schools will be looking to recruit MBA students at a fair to be held on October 4 at the Sheraton Tel Aviv Hotel & Towers. Among the business schools taking part in the event are Toronto-Rotman, HEC Paris, IE Business School, Manchester, Duke, and UCLA. The event will give an opportunity of meeting admissions officers from these and other leading schools.
Asked why the fairs attract so many prospective students, QS managing director Nunzio Quacquarelli said "It is the perfect chance to make an impression face-to-face with the very people reading your application forms, and that is invaluable to gain an edge in this tough field. The QS World MBA Tour provides the best step in the application process, the opportunity to ask intelligent, tailored questions on topics like personal fit, career opportunities, school specializations and financial aid." The QS World MBA Tour offers $1.6million worth of scholarships during the Fall 2009 season. The scholarships, for top business schools including Wharton, Chicago and Cass, are available to people who attend the fair.
