The MBA Fair: Come to the fair and brighten your career prospects
Sunday 31 January 1993
MBAs are essentially generalist courses. They are designed to introduce you to the full range of management functions and let you experience new and, hopefully, fascinating jobs. Possession of an MBA should increase your self-confidence. It will certainly broaden your horizons. Your fellow students will have different experiences and will form a useful network of contacts in a variety of employment sectors. These factors should increase your marketability, improving your prospects of gaining an interesting, responsible and lucrative position.
The MBA Fair, sponsored by the Independent on Sunday, will be held at the Business Design Centre in Islington on 3 and 4 February and should be the first stop for anyone contemplating management qualifications. MBA schools from 10 countries (the UK, Ireland, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, USA, Spain, Switzerland and Italy), together with advice centres and publishers will be there. It will give you a chance to delve behind the prospectuses and find out exactly what the courses offer, how much they cost, how they're funded, what alumni are doing now and much more.
Each day a programme of seminars will provide additional information on MBAs: choosing them, getting a place, what employers think of them, the European and American options, and how to go about getting a job once you graduate. Careers advisers from the University of London Careers Advisory Service and representatives from the Association of MBAs will be available to give tips and advice.
When trying for a place on an MBA course, just as when trying to gain employment, the way you apply is as important as what you have to offer and so members of the University of London Careers Advisory Service will be running a CV and application forms surgery each day. A bookstall will be distributing all kinds of literature about the MBA, from the AMBA Guide to Business Schools to the University of London Careers Advisory Service's best-selling How to Write a CV.
The catalogue to the fair is essential reading: at pounds 1.50, it will get you into the fair, provide all the information you need to make the most of your visit and contains heaps of useful articles and addresses. So, get out of your rut, unblock your career and come and see us at the MBA Fair 1993. Call 0800 252183 for further information.
