Hi there,

Campus visits and meeting current students are always talked about as being important during the MBA application process. Top 10 schools can be far, so I'm wondering if they ever do visits outside of the US, particularly in Toronto?

Looking at the MBA tour and the QS tour for next week, in Toronto, it's mostly European and Canadian schools. However the most of what you can do is totally achievable by reaching out to student ambassadors off the website, using the advanced search feature on LinkedIn to find alums, taking part in all the chats/webinars, reviewing their YouTube videos. One of the biggest reasons you want to do this research is to make it shine in your essays. Of course it's good to actually meet people face-to-face but I wouldn't let this stop you in anyway there's so much you can do without being on campus or meeting admissions representative face to face. The purpose of research is to get to know the school in order to establish whether or not they are fit with your goals and your values. If you can manage to demonstrate in the application that the school is a fit with your goals and values then you will have succeeded. For most schools it is a good idea to do a little name-dropping but I have clients take out quotes all the time because the quotes are not substantial, they don't add value.

Torontonian here, got into a couple of top 10 schools in round 1.

As far as I know, almost all of the top 10 schools visit Toronto. Sign-up for the schools' email newsletters. You may also need to check schools' websites regularly for upcoming events. A few that I know of -

  • MIT Sloan usually holds an information session early Aug
  • If you are a female applicant, you can attend the Forte Forum, which takes place late Aug/early Sep, and some top US schools are there. Several of them also hold events open to everyone either before or after the event. For example, Kellogg had an information session the evening before, and Tuck held a coffee chat the morning after.
  • Yale SOM and several top 15 schools come for a multi-school panel around July/Aug. Yale also has another info session early Nov.
  • Not sure the exact timing, but heard Wharton/Harvard hold information sessions in the summer.
  • Chicago Booth and MIT Sloan participate in one of the MBA tours, I can't recall the exact one.
  • Coffee chats with current students, usually over winter break or in the summer. The ones I know include Wharton, Yale SOM, Chicago Booth.


If you have the money and time, I would encourage you to also visit the campus. I visited all of the schools I applied to last year. It's not a requirement, but it shows interests, in particular with schools in more remote locations such as Tuck. It also gives you a feel for the culture on campus. There are a couple of schools that I visited and decided not to apply/attend.

Feel free to let me know if you have other questions. Happy to share my experience.
