If you are considering pursuing your MBA and you are looking at schools in the Triad/Triangle area, I highly recommend attending the upcoming MBA Open House at Elon on July 15.
About a year and a half ago, I started my quest to find the right MBA program. I researched every school in the area and signed up for many of the open house programs. The Elon MBA Open House was the first I attended in April of last year, and I have to honestly say that it was two hours that changed the direction of my life.
On the Elon website, you’ll read a lot about the program structure and classes, and also that Elon focuses on “Engaged Learning”, which all sound great, right? I don’t think you can really get a full appreciation of what this means unless you experience it. Part of the open house includes attending “mock” class, just to give you an idea of how the professors interact with the students. Also, several current students attend to answer questions and give you a better idea of what to expect (FYI, I will be one of those students). By the end of the open house, you will walk away with a much better understanding of what it means to attend the MBA program at Elon.
After attending that open house last April, I knew that Elon was the right place for me. Almost immediately, I began studying for the GMAT and sent in my application to attend.
If you decide to check out the open house, it is on the evening of July 15 from 5:30 to 7:30 in the Koury Business Center. Check the MBA website for registration. Hope you see you there!
