“Access MBA is designed to bridge the distance between aspiring students and elite business schools from around the world through personalised One-to-One meetings between candidates and school representatives,” Christophe Coutat, Advent Group’s Managing Director, said.

The One-to-One meetings are aimed at helping prospective students find a top business programme that corresponds to their abilities and expectations. Interviews are customised for each participant in advance, and qualified attendees are given 25 minutes to discuss their opportunities to study an MBA programme directly with admission directors. In order to qualify for the meetings, candidates undergo a selection and matching process which considers both their qualifications and wishes.

The event is composed of top international and local business schools. Candidates can expect to meet representatives from schools such as Duke University – The Fuqua School of Business, IE Business School and EADA Business School Barcelona while a total of 125 schools will feature in the Access MBA Tour this year.

The current event is part of Access MBA’s spring tour, which will visit 34 cities across the world this season alone. It is expected that the event will be attended by up to 200 specifically selected candidates from Vilnius and elsewhere around the country.

The event starts at 4:30 PM and will last until 10 PM. Besides the private One-to-One meetings with admission officers, candidates will also be able to get advice and support for MBA preparation from the Access MBA consulting team; obtain GMAT and scholarship information; gain insight into the MBA admissions process, and participate in Panel Discussions featuring school representatives and alumni.

The highly sought-after Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree prepares business professionals for managerial roles. In its 2014 Corporate Recruiters Survey report, the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), a US-based organisation dedicated to publicising information about the MBA degree, stated that four in five companies (80%) plan to hire MBA graduates. In Europe, holders of the MBA degree can expect to receive a median base salary of EUR 59,000 compared to EUR 35,000 for those with a Bachelor’s degree, while in the US the gap between the two qualifications is even wider: USD 95,000 for MBAs compared to USD 50,000 for Bachelor’s-degree recipients. “In the Asia-Pacific region, the majority of employers (62%) plan to increase MBA base salaries at the rate of inflation (31%) or above (31%), compared with 2013,” according to the report.
