Specialized Masters Programs: Admissions Insights & Strategy

Wednesday, October 28th

12:00 PM ET / 9:00 AM PT / 6:00 PM CET

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
