The Access Masters Tour is a series of targeted events that focus on high quality services for candidates looking for a Masters degree. These events give qualified and motivated graduate students the opportunity to meet with the admissions officers of international and local business schools and universities. Career counseling helps candidates with questions concerning Masters programmes, as well as orients them towards the right programme and school.
Interactive workshops take place at a round table with business school representatives and up to 12 candidates. These informal and open discussions make the workshops a great opportunity to learn more about specific Masters programmes. The workshops are 20 minutes long and are organised around a specific subject area (Marketing, Finance, Management, International Relations, Science, Technology, Engineering...).
Candidates that are more advanced in their application process are selected for customized meetings held with one to three individuals and the school representative.
Participating candidates attend the meetings of their choice provided they satisfy the basic admissions criteria: work experience, level of motivation, country of interest for studying, programme format and language fluency.
The thematic meetings depend on the attending business schools and are grouped in the following way: Management (Business, Strategy, Organisation), Finance (Finance, Accounting, Banking), Marketing (Marketing, Communications, Media) and other themes according to demand (International Relations, Information Systems, Law,...), STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)
Candidates that registered online have free access to the event and are pre-scheduled for school meetings that correspond to their programme preferences. Places are limited to 12 candidates per workshop. Advanced candidates who are "ready to apply" to specific schools are selected for customized meetings with school representatives.
The events are designed for recent graduates hoping to further their education. They have either a Bachelor's degree or the equivalent or are in their last year of undergraduate studies, and are fluent in English. However, some Masters programmes are available for candidates with professional experience. The event is reserved for candidates who meet schools' admissions criteria.
