About the trade show
About the Access MBA Tour

Employment Prospects Brighten for MBA Graduates
The Access MBA Tour in Toronto matches MBA candidates with the best business schools
The prestigious business education event will take place in Toronto on February 8th offering an opportunity to evaluate the current situation of the MBA degree. An elite selection of international business schools will meet One-to-One with highly qualified candidates in Canada.
Recruiters hire increasing numbers of MBA graduates
As many companies struggle to rebuild and expand their activity after the economic crisis, an increasing number have shifted their hiring focus and are now recruiting qualified MBA graduates. Two-thirds of companies participating in the latest Graduate Management Admission Council’s Corporate Recruiter’s Survey planned to hire MBA graduates for mid-level positions. This is in great contrast to corporate recruitment in 2009, when companies reduced the number of available positions by half. Experts indicate that companies are in need of dynamic MBA-educated executives to help them to build and strengthen their business for the future.
The general consensus is that MBA graduates are more qualified to take on business-building tasks than employees without such experience. In the past, individuals with BAs were frequently on equal footing with MBA graduates. An MBA degree is a major asset and now almost a mandatory condition for a management position.
An event that helps candidates select the right MBA programme
The Access MBA Tour will take place in Toronto with international business schools that wish to recruit local MBA candidates. The event’s One-to-One format is a unique and effective way to match candidates who meet schools’ admissions criteria. When registering online, candidates provide information about their personal and professional profile. Before the event, Access MBA matches the candidates with the MBA programmes that meet their needs and criteria, and at the event the candidates meet with MBA Admission Directors in 20-minute intervals. Event participants can also benefit from free orientation sessions with Access MBA’s professional consultants and GMAT test preparation advisors.
“The MBA One-to-One format that we created 8 years ago has become the new standard of graduate recruitments amongst top international business schools” says Christophe Coutat, founder and CEO of Advent Group, the media agency that organizes the Access MBA Tour.
Participating international business schools
The Access MBA Tour features top ranked universities at each event, including CEU Business School, HEC Montreal, Hult International Business School, IE Business School, Queens School of Business, The Lisbon MBA and others.
