In-Person events



A MeetUp is a small group meeting between a university representative and up to six candidates. Each MeetUp session lasts 20 minutes, and there are usually five to six sessions per event. Universities will begin sending MeetUp invitations 15 days before the event, so be sure to check your email and student portal. If you do not receive any invitations, there may be a chance to schedule MeetUps onsite during the event.

Admission Panels

Each event will have one or multiple panel presentations, which are sessions on various topics hosted by a small group of university representatives. The topics covered during MBA Tour panels vary based on the event and include preparing your application, financing your degree, discovering programs that fit your career goals, and more. Check your event page to see which topic(s) will be covered during the event you’re attending.

Advising Sessions

Take the stress out of your business school application by learning from the specialists! During a 25-minute presentation, you will hear from test prep organizations, admissions consultants, young professional networks, financial institutions and others to help you better navigate your business school journey.

MBA Talks

Explore the unique features of various business programs during these 25-minute presentations. Not only will you get a valuable overview of programs, you will also hear more about their take on topics like entrepreneurship, leadership, technology, careers, and more. And, get your top questions answered during the Q+A at the end. 

Networking Fair

Most events will conclude with a Networking Fair, in which you have the opportunity to network with admissions representatives, alumni, event partners, and fellow applicants. The Networking Fair gives you the chance to meet with any schools you were not able to visit earlier in the event and to make connections with other event attendees and MBA graduates.
