Access MBA, a global leader in One-to-One business education events, will meet business professionals in Zurich on 3rd February at Zurich Marriott Hotel, organisers Advent Group announced today.


“The Access MBA Tour is currently held in 40 countries all over the world. At each event, professionals aspiring to MBA studies and managerial careers are carefully matched with top-ranked international business schools, ensuring a personalised and result-focused experience,” said Christophe Coutat, Advent Group’s Founder and Managing Director.


The One-to-One format enables business professionals to find a top MBA programme taught in English that corresponds to their background and expectations. Prior to the event, the professional profiles of MBA candidates are carefully evaluated and matched with suitable business schools. The individual meetings conducted with MBA Admission Directors help each event participant identify the business school programmes that can provide them with the educational experience and career prospects they are looking for.


“There is a wide range of local and international MBA programmes to choose from. At the same time, a diversity of learning formats, including more flexible and shorter options, enables participants to find the best fit depending on their personal goals, lifestyle, and preferences,” said Iva Peneva, Lead, MBA Candidate Relations of Advent Group.


The Access MBA Spring 2020 Tour showcases around 200 international business schools and takes place in over 50 cities across the world. Potential MBA applicants in Zurich can expect to meet representatives from schools such as IESE Business School, University of St. Gallen, Univeristy of Zurich, Hult International Business School, Vienna University of Economics and Business WU Executive Academy and many more.

In addition to the in-person meetings with Admission Directors, event attendees receive MBA and GMAT preparation support, obtain information about scholarships and other funding options, gain insight into the MBA admissions process, and participate in panel discussions featuring school representatives and alumni.


The prestigious Master of Business Administration degree has the distinction of being a valued asset to careers in the business world. The latest data reveals that the prospects remain high in almost any professional field. The vast majority of business school alumni are employed, whether for a company (79%) or as self-employed entrepreneurs (10%), according to the 2018 Alumni Perspectives Survey by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), the organisation that administers the GMAT exam. “The majority of business school alumni feel their graduate management education advanced their careers at a faster rate compared with peers who do not have a graduate management education,” the report states.


The strong demand for MBA graduates also signifies higher salaries. In 2018, the median base salary among business school alumni was USD 115,000. In addition, various polls frequently show that the majority of employers plan to hire new business school graduates, indicating the consistently bright prospects of business and management education.
