Question on QS World tour [#permalink] New post 29 Nov 2010, 05:37
Have anybody attended the QS MBA tour and how did you feel?

When they display the list of participating schools in an area, are the schools indicated by highlighted bold text or are all the schools in the list attending the event?

what schools are you targeted? based on what schools attend the program, there's a very small representation of the top-10 schools. if that's what you're gunning for, then it's probably not that valuable.

Thanks kb.

I mean on the website www.topmba.com, there is a list of schools that visit each place.
In the list there are schools displayed in bold and schools displayed in normal font.
I was wondering whether only schools listed in bold are attending the event?

Thank you.

By the way, here is the master schedule of all Fairs and Tours.
all-mba-tours-and-fairs-104171.html

There is a different set of schools attending each of the events.... the bold schools just means "partner" schools that have a better/stronger relationship with Top MBA and the rest are "regular", so it does not mean anything. You actually have to click on each school's name and see which cities they will be present at (such as this one - only visiting Bangalore but listed in all other cities)

VERY CONFUSING! I think the number of schools attending is actually fewer than the impression made by the website.

Thanks BB,

from what I understood from your reply is that if I check the School Page at
http://www.topmba.com/school_profile/marshall-school-of-business-university-of-southern-california/
then the list of places the school is touring should be displayed under the Events Schedule.

Thanks for the help.

Regards.

I attended the LA one earlier this year and found it helpful if you're trying to gather information from multiple programs.

If you're just hoping to talk to 1 or 2 programs in depth it's not a great venue to do so with a bunch of people waiting in line to ask questions after you.
