The Access MBA and Access Masters Tours in Bangkok matches MBA and Masters candidates with the best business schools on March 15th, offering an opportunity to evaluate the current situation of the MBA and Masters degree. An elite selection of international business schools will meet One-to-One with highly qualified candidates in Thailand.

Recruiters hire increasing numbers of MBA and Masters graduates

As many companies struggle to rebuild and expand their activity after the economic crisis, an increasing number have shifted their hiring focus and are now recruiting qualified MBA and Masters graduates. Two-thirds of companies participating in the latest Graduate Management Admission Council’s Corporate Recruiter’s Survey planned to hire MBA and Masters graduates for mid-level positions. This is in great contrast to corporate recruitment in 2009, when companies reduced the number of available positions by half. Experts indicate that companies are in need of dynamic MBA-educated executives to help them to build and strengthen their business for the future.

The general consensus is that MBA and Masters graduates are more qualified to take on business-building tasks than employees without such experience. In the past, individuals with BAs were frequently on equal footing with MBA and Masters graduates. An MBA or Masters degree is a major asset and now almost a mandatory condition for a management position.

An event that helps candidates select the right MBA or Masters programme

The Access MBA and Access Masters Tours will return to Bangkok  with international business schools that wish to recruit local MBA candidates. The event’s One-to-One format is a unique and effective way to match candidates who meet schools’ admissions criteria. When registering online, candidates provide information about their personal and professional profile. Before the event, Access MBA and Access Masters matche the candidates with the MBA and Masters programmes that meet their needs and criteria, and at the event the candidates meet with MBA and Masters Admission Directors in 20-minute intervals. Event participants can also benefit from free orientation sessions with Access MBA’s professional consultants and GMAT test preparation advisors.

“The One-to-One format that we created 8 years ago has become the new standard of graduate recruitments amongst top international business schools” says Christophe Coutat, founder and CEO of Advent Group, the media agency that organizes the Access MBA and Access Masters Tours.
