Coming to Taipei on 17 November?

If so then you might want to meet us at the World MBA Tour at the Westin Taipei on Nanking East Road.  You will have a chance to speak to a representative from the School as well as recent MBA alumni.  You may find this a bit early but if you are to take the GMAT as part of your application as well as secure the student visa then the sooner the better.  Hope to see you there!  If you read this after and missed us there then just use the link to read about our programmes and also the scholarships on offer.

Here, classes in the first semester is coming to an end – next week is the last week.  After that we have the Integrative Project before moving into revision before exams.  Most in the class feel that they have only just begun their studies but the MBA year passes like nothing else and it is very intensive.  That’s why I always encourage my students to make sure that they take advantage of the Christmas break: three lovely weeks.  For the students anyway.  Not so for me; I’ll be back after two weeks to ensure that everything is ready for the next semester.

Well, I’m in need of a coffee now so…

Coming to London on 18 October?

If so then you might want to meet us at the AMBA MBA Fair at the Thistle Hotel Marble Arch.  You will have a chance to speak to our Admissions Coordinator as well as recent MBA alumni.  You may find this a bit early given that classes only begin in September 2009 but if you are interested in the MBA then the sooner you make your decision about where to go the sooner you can begin planning ahead.  If you are in Edinburgh and you are considering the University of Edinburgh Business School then you are also very welcome to drop in and meet with myself or one of my colleagues – nothing beats actually visiting the environment where you are to study later.  It has to be somewhere that you (and maybe your family?) can feel at home.  If you can then please do go and visit the schools you are considering.  Meet staff and the current students and see what they are doing right now.  Planning ahead is also important if you are to take the GMAT as part of your application.  So hope to see you there or maybe here.

On a personal note I’m finalising the data for our exam board meeting next week.  Everything needs checking and re-checking to make sure it all runs smoothly.  As I have mentioned before, this is the final exam board meeting for the full-time class of 2007-8.  The IB class (our shorthand for the MBA in International Business class) have to wait until next year as they only submit their final project in December.
