Post release

On the 7th of June, more than 1,500 participants joined a live broadcast attended by three of the world’s most renowned business schools: Harvard, MIT, and Yale.

Future applicants from more than 15 countries, including the USA, Canada, China, India, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Germany, took part in the live interactive online event with the Heads of Admissions from Harvard, Yale, and MIT.

This was first event of its scale; nothing comparable had ever been organized by any other companies.
Given the scale, the number of participants, and the quality of the questions they asked, this event outperformed all previously organized MBA events.

The event panelists, Tommaso Canetta (MIT Sloan), Kate Bennett (Harvard Business School), and W. Bruce DelMonico (Yale School of Management), fielded more than 200 questions from attendees around the world.

Event moderator, Dmitry Bondar, (founder of MBA25) raised several important topics for discussion, such as:

  • innovations in admission processes

  • immigration policy changes and how they could affect potential business school candidates

  • new approaches for candidate selection

  • financial aid for international candidates

  • the value of investments in MBAs

The event was organized and held by the MBA25 company. The MBA25 team has been organizing business education events in Europe, CIS countries, and the USA for over 8 years, connecting top business schools with top candidates. World-leading companies support MBA25 in finding and developing promising talents. The company is headquartered in Austin, Texas, with a European office in Kyiv, Ukraine.

We would like to thank our partners for their cooperation during the live broadcast and their readiness to help: GMAT Club, Beat The GMAT, MBA Strategy, English Business Services, Global Edu, GMAT Genius, 700+ Club, and Dominate Test Prep.
