 FROM mbaMission Blog: Beyond the MBA Classroom: Columbia Business School’s Pre-MBA World Tour When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.Although Columbia Business School (CBS) does not offer any official pre-term trips for incoming students, the student body does organize something called the Pre-MBA World Tour. Trips run in parallel throughout June and July. Students can join any part of any of the trips, for any period of time that is convenient for them. The trips are completely the responsibility of students, though CBS encourages and supports the initiative. Past destinations have included Peru, Oman, South Africa, Israel, Hong Kong, Thailand, Costa Rica, Cuba, Turkey, France, Budapest, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, and Japan.For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at CBS and 15 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.The post Beyond the MBA Classroom: Columbia Business School’s Pre-MBA World Tour appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.

Friday Factoid: Facilities at Duke Fuqua [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: Friday Factoid: Facilities at Duke Fuqua The Fuqua School of Business is located on Duke University’s West Campus near the intersection of Science Drive and Towerview Drive. Students often congregate in the Fox Center, a 70,000 square foot facility that was built in 2002. Linking the main wings of the school and featuring a café, enormous windows, and a spacious indoor winter garden, the Fox Center is the hub of the school. Students can eat breakfast and lunch there, grab a coffee, conduct team meetings, or just take a breather between classes or during the 15-minute break in each class period. In August 2008, Fuqua opened the 91,000 square foot Doug and Josie Breeden Hall, the “new front door of the School for students and visitors,” as it was described in the student newspaper, the Fuqua Bulletin. Named after former dean Douglas Breeden (2001–2006), the building boasts a three-story atrium, two auditoriums (which seat 126 and 146 people), the expanded Ford Library, three 70-seat lecture rooms, and a suite of team rooms. All told, Fuqua’s campus covers nearly 500,000 square feet, with 58 team rooms, ten classrooms, and seven seminar rooms. In February 2015, the school undertook a major renovation project for the R. David Thomas Executive Conference Center. Once completed in mid-2016, the center will add more than 90,000 extra square feet, including a 5,600 square foot ballroom.For more information on other defining characteristics of the MBA program at Duke Fuqua or one of 15 other top business schools, please check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.The post Friday Factoid: Facilities at Duke Fuqua appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.

MBA News: MBAs Are in High Demand at Companies, New GMAC Survey Shows [#permalink]
 FROM mbaMission Blog: MBA News: MBAs Are in High Demand at Companies, New GMAC Survey Shows Three out of four companies plan to hire MBAs this year, the Graduate Management Admission Council’s (GMAC’s) annual Year-End Poll of Employers report reveals. The recently released results show that 96% of the 179 surveyed recruiters from 159 employers believe hiring MBAs will create value for the company, while 69% view recruiting business school graduates as a priority in the firm’s hiring plans. “We are expanding our MBA hiring because the company needs to fill the leadership pipeline,” one U.S. manufacturing recruiter commented in the report.The trend is not new: 85% of respondents said they plan to hire as many or more MBAs than they did last year. Employers in the United States are more inclined to take on business school graduates than their European counterparts—82% of U.S. employers are reportedly likely to hire MBAs, while the number of European companies was lower at 63%. In any case, employment perspectives look fairly bright, as a U.S. health care/pharmaceutical employer notes in the survey: “The job market continues to improve at a faster rate for MBAs.”The post MBA News: MBAs Are in High Demand at Companies, New GMAC Survey Shows appeared first on mbaMission - MBA Admissions Consulting.
