Has back to school season got you feeling a bit left out? Whether you're longing to indulge your lifelong love of learning once more, or looking to boost your professional credentials, QS — the publisher behind the industry standard World University Rankings — might just be able to help.
This autumn, two of the biggest events for postgraduate learning come to London. First, on Saturday 5 October, the QS World MBA Tour brings together over 40 of the world's best business schools. Then, a week later, it's time for QS World Grad School Tour London, which is the largest international masters event of its kind.
And the best bit? Both of them are totally free to attend.
Whether you're eyeing up a senior management role, want ot increase your earning potential, or looking to start your business, an MBA can provide you with an invaluable toolkit for success. If you're thinking about pursuing one, but not sure where to start, the QS World MBA Tour has you covered.
Submit your CV in advance of the event, and the publisher's in-house team will use their expertise to pick the business schools that will suit you best.
At the event itself, you can book personal meetings with admissions directors from over 40 business schools including Imperial, LSB, Carnegie-Mellon, Tsinghua, and Kellogg to get a feel for them yourself — which is way more cost-efficient than visiting them in person (it's just good business sense!). There's also the chance to hobnob with business school alumni and learn what life as an MBA student is really like.
Of course, deciding to go for an MBA is only the first step — your ultimate goal is getting that high flying career in business. That's why the QS World MBA Tour is jam-packed with inspiring seminars, with topics including MBA Global Insights, Effective Networking, and Women In Leadership, which features industry leaders from the likes of Google and BT, plus the founder of GrowTech.
There's even an employment panel featuring recruiter representatives from some of the world's top companies, not to mention plenty of networking opportunities at the MBA Happy Hour (yes, there will be free bubbly and canapés).
