Access MBA event: Don’t
Well I just had a very frustrating evening. Off I went to a posh hotel with over priced tea for the Access MBA one -to -one event. And found out it’s not a one -to -one event they instead offered me group discussion with admissions reps. What good is that? I can find out the same information by reading the website and not get wet!
Tried group discussions before and I don’t think they work. You can’t have a conversation and obtain tailored information. Or the other person dominates the conversation. Kinda like spare room hunting, if you get a two on one situation, you know you ain’t getting the room.
So I wasn’t impressed!
So was it worth the money? Mmm wouldn’t say no. Mainly by stamping my feet I got to see one MBA course on one-one basis and they told me about scholarships I wasn’t aware of! Now that’s worth more than the five pounds entrance fee.
But I would say it was a waste of time. I got to see one school and didn’t see the other schools I was interested in, mainly as I declined to do group discussions.
And no I didn’t ticket the box to say I would recommend this event to others.
What are your thoughts and experiences on one-to-one versus groups at MBA events?
