Preparing for
a virtual event

Learn how to make the most of a virtual event with The MBA Tour, where you’ll have the opportunity to connect with leading business schools from around the world, gain access to exclusive panels and discussions, and network with admissions professionals, alumni and fellow candidates (learn more here). 

Download our comprehensive Virtual Event Candidate Guide before your event so you know what to expect and have an understanding of the platform and best practices to follow.


Event Questions

You will receive an email from The MBA Tour one hour in advance with information on how to log into the virtual event platform.

Visit our website, click on the events tab, and then select the event you are interested in attending. This page will show the event schedule, attending universities, and special offers. 

All of the participating schools will be available to chat at their virtual booth throughout the event. This is a great place to meet with admissions representatives from those schools and introduce yourself.

Registrations for all of our clinics are on a first-come first-serve basis. To secure your spot, we recommend signing in as soon as you’ve received the link to the platform. 

It is highly recommended that you attend The MBA Tour in your region. Inour experience, candidates that attend an event outside of their region typically have a less valuable experience.

Technical Questions

Yes, although we highly recommend you use a computer to get the full experience.

Yes, if you have a scheduled MeetUp, the expectation is that you will video chat with the university representative in a small group. Because of this, we recommend you wear business casual attire.

Yes, a strong internet connection is necessary.

If you are having technical difficulties during the event, please visit the Help Desk.

Meetup Questions

MeetUps are invite-only small group meetings with admission decision-makers. We’ve distilled decades of experience into an intelligent matching algorithm that recommends the best schools for you. During the 25-minute, face-to-face video sessions, you can ask questions and get a better feel for the program and if it’s right for you.

Each MeetUp is 25 minutes long.

The best way to view and accept your MeetUp invitations is by logging into your student portal. Once you login, you will see your pending invitations on the left side panel. 

To reschedule, go to your student portal and click the reschedule button under the MeetUp section on the left-hand side bar.

If you cannot attend any of the sessions a university invited you to, select the “schedule conflict” button under the MeetUp invitation on the landing page. This will allow you to send a message to the school requesting a different time to meet after the event. 

Most MeetUps are scheduled prior to the event. However, if you are interested in adding another, visit The MBA Tour’s MeetUp booth for on-site scheduling.

Learn how to make the most of your MeetUps with these tips

We recommend you dress in business casual attire.

When you don’t have a scheduled MeetUp, we’d recommend visiting the school’s booth in the Exhibition Hall. There, you can have a 1:1 or group chat with a school representative as well as leave your contact info to meet after the event.
