How to get there

Georgy Babilashvily, INSEAD

Dear MBA25, Thank you very much for organizing the MBA-Fair in Moscow. It was one of the best MBA fairs, with high quality of candidates and strong list of schools represented. The organization was remarkable – reception, stands, plenary session, and especially the IT infrastructure.I trust this even was extremely beneficial for all participants! Wishing you success in your future undertakings.

Ivan Kalinin, Harvard Business School Class of 2009

MBA25 was organized very professionally, indeed an event where top schools and high quality candidates gathered in one place.    Some of these people I could very well see studying at HBS in 1-2 years. 

Denis Tafintsev, Stanford University Graduate School of Business Class of 2010

Dear MBA Strategy,   Thank you for an opportunity to represent Stanford GSB at MBA25 event in Kiev. I really enjoyed having open and friendly conversations with talented people who came to meet the representatives of top-rated business schools.    I believe that such events will extend the boarders of high-level business education and increase the quality of doing business in CIS.

Alexey Astafev, MBA Hong Kong University of Science and Technology - School of Business and Management Class of 2011

Many thanks to you and your team too for having me & HKUST both at MBA25, and for brilliant arrangement of the event.   Indeed, I myself noticed considerable interest in Asian schools this time - as I had to answer numerous questions about our school in front of so many people for all 3 hrs.

Alex Zaretsky, Class of 2009, New York University - Leonard N. Stern School of Business

I took part in one of the events organized by MBA strategy as an alum of NYU Stern.I was amazed by the level of organization and detailed preparation. All the aspects were carefully though through and taken care of.All I had to do is to show up and speak about my school to applicants.I think they are doing a great job of laying down the infrastructure which helps many talented candidates to get accepted to top world business schools.

Andrey Galiuk, Class of 2010, University of Chicago Booth School of Business

I would like to extend my gratitude to your team for professionally organizing a recent MBA25 Fair in Moscow. The event was well though through from concept to realization and went virtually seamlessly.I appreciate your effort in selecting a great pool of aspiring MBA candidates - it was a great chance to network and get to know many like-minded young professionals. I enjoyed participating in the panel discussion on pre- and post-MBA career, where audience was very engaged and asked well-prepared questions. Hope sharing my experiences was helpful for the participants and I would be happy to participate in similar events in the future.

Andrei Protasov, Wharton Business School

 Let me thank you for the high-quality MBA event. We think the MBA25 fair raised the bar for similar Russian and Ukrainian MBA-events and brought its own vision regarding how such fairs should be organized. What we liked most was the quality and quantity of proactive candidates looking for top-notch MBA programs and who are interested in professional development. We believe you will find similar demand in other CIS countries, where a lot of talented professionals are ready to build an international career.We are looking forward to participating in the MBA25 fair in the future and will be glad to represent Wharton again. 

Irina Polovneva, Country Representative, IE Business School

I was impressed with the overall success of both fairs held by MBA Strategy in Russia and Ukraine. They were able to attract top schools, which resulted in an amazing number of participants. I would also like to add that as the organizers MBA Strategy did a good job pre-educating visitors about the difference of the programs and schools participating. This event will not only become "a must" on our schedule for the market of Russia and Ukraine. It also helps to strengthen the competition on the above mentioned markets and improve quality of the service providers. Everyone benefits at the end!

Daria Zarubina, Regional Director, Russia and CIS, Duke University, The Fuqua School of Business

On behalf of Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business I would like to thank MBA25 team for very well organized events in Moscow and in Kiev.I had a pleasure of participating in both events, and the caliber of the candidates I met was very high. I found that event attendees were prepared with good questions about MBA in general and The Duke MBA programs in particular.The mix of formats was very interesting, and we consider participating in MBA25 events in the future, because it is one of the best ways to meet large groups of qualified prospective students.

Irina Vekselberg, Yale Club of Russia, Yale

I would like to thank you for inviting us to MBA25 Event on September 27th at Marriott Grand hotel in Moscow.Everything was well-organized and prepared. The setup and your stuff were very professional. Particularly, I found the set-up of open discussions and separate seminars on career and admission progress beneficial to participants and speakers.  I was favorably impressed with strong interest in Yale School of Management from your Moscow candidates. It was too bad we could not participate in your Kiev Event.We would be glad to participate in your future events.Thank you,

Alex Garmash, LBS HR Director, Executive Board Member of VAB Bank, LBS

As an alumnus of London Business School I would like to thank the team of MBA Strategy for organising MBA25 event. This MBA fair attracted hundreds of perspective MBA candidates with the perfect opportunity to meet some of the world top business schools. It was a brilliant opportunity to position LBS as the pre-eminent global business school. It was my honour to present the benefits and global impact of LBS to more than 50 prospective students over face-to-face conversations. Many of them discovered new opportunities and programmes at LBS and intended to apply to LBS. In general, MBA25 created an unparalleled opportunity for MBA candidates to make informed education choices.

Andrea Chomistek, Associate Director of Admissions, University of Michigan - Ross School of Business

Thanks so much for allowing us to participate and for all your time and attention spent making it possible. You and your team are great. I had a wonderful experience. I knew that the candidates would be good quality from seeing their information you had on the website. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the level of career focus, knowledge of the MBA, and quality of English speaking skills. I also really appreciated the website. It was very helpful to be able to have some knowledge of the attendees before speaking with them.  My only regret is that I couldn’t be there in person. I will highly recommend participation in the fall to my team and to the joint schools.

James Barker, MBA Admissions Co-ordinator , Cambridge Judge Business School

MBA Strategy’s one-to-one format enabled me to truly understand the individual candidates’ profile and motivation for MBA study, and to be able to advise them on our offering accordingly.  It allowed for strong connections to be made, and for the applicants’ questions to be answered in greater depth.  The candidates were generally well prepared and had already done a reasonable amount of MBA research.The events were well-run by the dedicated and hard-working MBA Strategy team.

Aleix Pratdepadua, Associate Director of Admissions, The ESADE MBA & Executive Masters Unit

I would like to acknowledge the great effort that MBA Strategy put into the successful event. I was highly impressed by the quality and diversity of the prospective candidates and of their previous knowledge of ESADE. It was a highly productive and intensive interview day that we look forward to repeat soon in Moscow and Kiev. We hope that our candidates had the same experience we had.

Aleix Pratdepadua, ESADE Business School

Many thanks to the MBA Strategy Team for their hard work! Their events are personalised, professional and friendly. One really feels looked after by the staff, the personal attention is much appreciated. Keep up the good work! Andrew Bueno (INSEAD)It's been a nice experience attending the MBA 25 again in Moscow and Kiev. I've been impressed by the quality of candidates and their academic and professional employability. Hope to meet all of you in the Fall again!

Pavel Khokhryakov, Stanford GSB Russia Chapter Officer, Alumni Ambassador

In September 2012 I represented Stanford Business School. In my opinion MBA25 is an excellent place for applicants to meet representatives of the leading business schools, learn more about MBA and careers after it, compare different schools, learn about their cultures and peculiarities of the learning processes, talk directly with admissions officers and alumni. MBA25 is organized effectively and allows participants just in one day to get critical information regarding best MBA programs.

INSEAD, Moscow

Thanks again for everything. I was very happy with the turnout and the quality of candidates so I would like to thank MBA strategy for their support. We had such amazing attendance numbers. Well done.Thanks again. It was great to meet you.

Participants of MBA25, Moscow

"Everything was perfect organized. The event was very nice and informative." "Thanks to the round table session with the Harvard Business School, I’ve decided to apply to this school." "Real conversation with representatives of schools was really valuable." 

Andrew Bueno, INSEAD, about MBA25 in Tallin, Riga, Vilnius

I would like to thank MBA25 for being the first service provider to "pioneer" the Baltic region. I was extremely happy with the quality and quantity of candidates in all 3 countries! Many thanks!

Laura Russo, Recruiting and Admissions, SDA Bocconi

Many thanks for your great support, MBA25 events so far have been characterized by a high level of energy and commitment, plus personalized approach. Very valuable, in my experience. We will certainly consider doing more events with your organization.

Michael Scott , Development Manager Europe, Latin America, HEC Paris, MBA

Attending MBA25 is a priority for HEC. We were impressed by the professionalism of the staff and the quality of the participants as well as by the dynamic format of the event.

Pauline Cheung, HKUST

The organization of MBA25 in Moscow was impressive. Candidates' quality was relatively high.

Tan Wee Teck, NUS Business School

The MBA25 was a very well-organised event that gave schools the opportunity to meet and interact with prospective students on a very personal level. Through one-to-one meetings and small focus groups, schools are able to showcase what their programmes can do for these students while students are able to discuss their requirements and concerns with schools about how to choose a MBA programme that is best suited to their needs.

Tatyana Kretova, IE Business School

Excellent organization. Good candidates

Andrew Bueno, INSEAD, Kiev, Moscow

Thank you MBA25 Team for great events in Kiev and Moscow. The quality and quantity of prospects surpassed my expectations. Your attention to detail and personal care of the school representatives was most appreciated! Looking forward to next year.

"Many thanks to mba25 for such great meeting""The speakers were very professional""Duke University, IE and INSEAD attract me. I wish future cooperation. Your event very pleasing.""Thanks for useful presentation...i enjoyed panel discussion""All process was extremely well-managed" 

Participants of MBA25, 28th of September, Moscow, 2013

"Chicago booth - one of the best meeting, two scheduled alumnis and a current student passing by, atmosphere at this table was really friendly and very supportive, hosts really tried to answer questions without holding anything back, they explained how they see the school, what expect from the MBA programs, what is expected from you and all this with the sauce of personall experiences and reactions. Very great, I actually wanted to become friends with everyone and this school sky-rocketed in my personal rankings." 

Participants of MBA25, 28th of September, Moscow, 2013

"MIT - this meeting started with a great intro, all you need to know about the school compressed in 5 minute animated speech by Dawna, this not only helped to get some crucial info, but also provided participants with source for additional questions and set the pace of round table. I really liked both school representatives, clarity of information and straight to the point approach. Unfortunately it lacked some alumnis, but they invited us for additional meeting, so it was compensated."
