Amsterdam MBA Fair
September 27, 2009: 10:30 AM - 5:00 PM
On Sunday September 27, the 3rd annual Amsterdam MBA Fair will be held. The day targets young professionals living in the Netherlands who are interested in pursuing an MBA in the next 1-2 years. Twelve of the top global MBA programs will send their Admissions Directors to provide information and promote their schools. From past participants we understand that the greatest value of the day is the chance to speak with MBA alumni living in the Netherlands who can talk about their own experiences during and after their MBAs.
We would like each of the participating schools to send 4 to 6 alumni to attend the event on Sept 27. We welcome you to join for the entire program from 11.00 to 17.00. Though if you are time-constrained, the most valuable time to be there is for the break-out groups and borrel from 13.30 to 17.00.
The following business schools are participating this year: Chicago Booth, Columbia, IESE, IMD, INSEAD, Harvard, Kellogg (Northwestern), London Business School, Sloan (MIT), Stanford, Tuck (Dartmouth), Wharton (U. of Penn).
