MBA Interview Strategy for
HBS, Stanford GSB & Wharton

Wednesday Oct 14th @ 12:30 ET

The venerated trinity of business schools – HBS, Stanford GSB & Wharton – have notoriously distinctive interview formats. While HBS runs the interview like a 30-minute case discussion, the GSB skews towards behavioral questions and Wharton throws you into a dynamic team based discussion. Then there’s the added complexity of making a personal connection in a virtual format this year. Learn more about what to expect, how to prepare for the various interview styles, and tips for making the best possible impression on video.

Host: Fortuna Admissions Director Matt Symonds, business education industry expert & columnist for Forbes, The Economist, BusinessWeek, the BBC

Specialized Masters Programs: Admissions Insights & Strategy

Wednesday, Oct 28th noon ET

Demand for specialized masters programs, like the Masters in Management (MiM), are on the rise, and have become increasingly popular over the last few years as more and more individuals seek to increase their competitive advantage on the heels of their undergraduate degree. Designed for younger candidates with little to no work experience, the MiM is a catalyst for a career in business – as opposed to the MBA, which is traditionally designed for those with 3+ years of work experience. Find out what these programs are looking for and how to position your application for success.

Host: Fortuna Admissions Director Matt Symonds, business education industry expert & columnist for Forbes, The Economist, BusinessWeek, the BBC

Speakers:

Emma Bond, former London Business School Senior Manager of Admissions

Lisa Bevill, former IE Director of Admissions

Julia Brady, former Kellogg Managing Director and Senior Associate Dean of UChicago

A Winning Round 2
MBA Strategy

Wednesday, Oct 21st @noon ET

The single most important thing you can do is apply when your application is the very best reflection of you, and your candidacy. As a round 2 candidate, you need to go the extra mile to demonstrate you understand each program’s unique values and culture, and that you’ve given serious consideration to both what you’ll gain from and bring to their community. We discuss the unique considerations for round 2 candidates (particularly this year), mistakes to avoid, and how to maximize your chances of admission success.
