Amsterdam MBA Fair 2016

Are you a young professional with several years'  work experience in the private or public sector? Do your ambitions extend beyond the Netherlands? Are you considering a graduate business degree e.g. MBA (Master of Business Administration) from a top-ranked international program to take your career to the next level?

The choice of school is critical to making your MBA a success. Factors which you should take into account include international reputation, specialization, one vs. two year program, US vs. Europe, alumni relations, campus etc. Most important is that you make the right choice for you!

Ivy Circle Netherlands with the support of Roland Berger offers you this unique opportunity to meet Admissions Directors and alumni from the world's top graduate business schools. During the fair, you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the MBA in general, compare schools and programs, learn more about those youre most interested in and see which best fit your competencies and ambitions, to help you make the right choice.
