Taking an MBA is likely to be one of the biggest investments of time and money that you will ever make. A recent Economist article puts this decision on par with selecting the right house given the impact of tuition fees (as much as $107K for a Wharton 2-year MBA) and the opportunity costs of forgoing potential income. And while there are many business school options, finding the right program is not just about looking at rankings, or choosing one considered as "prestigious." The key to making the right choice is in knowing why you want to pursue an MBA, and what you expect it to do for you."
 
Join NSHMBA on Thursday, 12pm PT for an insightful webinar exploring the top reasons for pursuing an MBA, understanding whether it's the right fit for you, and determining when is the right time to get an MBA. Our team of panelists includes Kathy Gleed, Senior Director of Admissions and Chief Diversity Officer at the UC Davis Graduate School of Management and Amy Russell, Deputy Director of Admissions also from the UC Davis GSM. We will also have Jose Macedo, UC Davis MBA candidate class of 2016, to provide a student perspective on the MBA selection process.
 
We hope you will be able to participate as we will be discussing why it's so critical to choose the right school and provide you with the tools to help you assess your top needs and priorities in selecting a program:

  • How to determine whether you will get your return on investment?
  • How to choose an MBA program that will further your career and help you achieve your professional goals- both now and in the long-term?
  • Why are faculty-to-student ratios and diversity important? 
  • What are the benefits to choosing a school based on its location?

In addition, we will also address concerns surrounding common MBA misconceptions to take the anxiety out of the admissions process so you can refocus your MBA efforts on your applications.
 
A Q&A session will follow after the conversation.
