QS MBA fair in Mumbai - (bad) experience  [#permalink]

Hi friends,

I attended the QS MBA fair in Mumbai on 27th May but did not find it much interesting. I had 1-2-1 sessions with the Queens and Ivey schools.

The Queens delegate was a canadian lady and she counselled us very nicely. She has answered all the queries, I asked her that my age is 34 and i have 10+ years of experience, and she told me that i can still hope for the admission, as the admission is offered case by case basis and looking at all the aspects of the application. She explained us how the Queens apply "team" strategy in the class and why its beneficial for students. She also explained us about the VISA norms. we were really impressed with her knowledge, appearance and the respect that she showed towards us.

After that i had 1-2-1 with the Ivey school. There was an indian girl and really she was pathetic. She told me that since I have 10+ years of experience, there is no point in further discussion and told me to leave(really she the moment she came to know my age, she as not willing to listen a single word from me :evil: ) She even told me that i will not get into any other schools in canada for full time MBA and I should look for only EMBA. It was very disheartening and i thought of putting this on the Ivey's website. ( i even know her name, its Pooja).

Furthermore, the Ivey girl did not know difference between the job functions such as technology and consulting. She suggested me for full time executive MBA. I wanted to ask her what is that and if she knows any other schools offering that, but she even didn't listen to me and just telling me to leave (really she was so reluctant to talk to me).

Is this is the quality of the delegates (however, the other Ievy delegate was canadian girl and she was quite impressive) Ivey is sending to represent the school. I am really feeling bit nervous about Ivey, (not because i am overage) and my mind has started taking doubts about the quality of the education they provide (I should not judge the school just with the one delegate, though)

Overall the ambiance is cool and exciting (credit goes to Taj). I also saw one senior QS lady (must be in-charge) screaming on the junior QS staffs and also talking very rudely with some of the students (mostly who forgot resumes for 1-2-1 sessions or who missed appointment timings etc) . I felt that the QS staff was overworked and needed a longer break between the two events. So, in all, it was not much enlightenment but a good chance to meet the delegates esp if you have a specific query and the 1-2-1 works in that case.

Thanks for reading friends. I appreciate if you share your views and experiences of this kind of fairs.
