LONDON, UK, Sept. 13 /CNW/ - The world's biggest MBA, Masters and PhD

York, Boston, Toronto, Atlanta, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, Seattle and
Houston between 12 September and 6 October. Full details can be found on

A record 190 international MBA and grad schools (up from 165 in 2006)
will take part, including 27 of the top 30 US business schools and the world's
best international MBA and Masters programs:
- University of Melbourne, Australia
- CEIBS, China
- INSEAD, France & Singapore
- Bocconi University, Italy
- London Business School, UK
The Wharton School will attend all venues of the Tour in 2007. Thomas
Caleel, Director of Admissions says, "We always meet a large number of
candidates suitable for The Wharton School on the World MBA Tour."
For the first time candidates can meet admissions directors of not just
MBA programs, but also grad schools in accountancy, education, law, logistics,
international relations and technology.
Attendees also have the opportunity to apply for US$ 1.1 million of
graduate and MBA scholarships to top schools including Chicago GSB, Wharton,
CASS, Toronto, exclusively granted to visitors to the Tours.
98% of last year's 13,000 visitors in the USA rated the fair 'useful' or
'very useful'. Spencer Mattheson, Tour Manager, says "Schools and candidates
are looking for the right match. In a face-to-face meeting, an experienced
admissions officer can answer very personalized queries, provide career
guidance and suggest tips to improve the chances of application success for
the right candidates."
Peter Johnson, Director of Admissions at UC Berkeley's Haas School of
Business, adds that first impressions can contribute greatly to an applicant's
success "We look for candidates who can clearly articulate their post-MBA
career goals, and have a good understanding of how our MBA program will help
them to achieve those goals." Following each fair, Johnson's team follow up
personally with candidates short-listed for their potential.
