About the Webinar
The most popular field of study for international students in the United States is business and management. Indeed, international student applications for graduate business programs in the U.S. increased by 7 percent in 2014. A recent survey by the Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants (AIGAC) states, “When it comes to choosing the business schools to which an applicant is most likely to apply, MBA rankings continue to be the No. 1 criteria for prospective students. … The second most important criteria for school selection was ‘career impact,’ followed closely by a school’s career placement stats.”
Attendees of this webinar will gain valuable insight from admissions expert Jack Nelson, director of recruitment for graduate business programs at Hofstra University’s Frank G. Zarb School of Business in Long Island, N.Y., and student ambassador Deliece Knights, an incoming MBA student from Trinidad and Tobago who will matriculate at CUNY Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business this fall. Attendees will also have their questions answered by Jack and Deliece in real time. Register today!
