The Economist Online Fairs is partnering with tech startup Apply in the Sky to host its Global MBA Forum on March 22nd and March 23rd. The free online event allows prospective students to interact with leading business schools from around the world.
From tips on how to navigate the admissions process to details about program specialties, curriculum and campus life, the Forum provides prospective students with a wide variety of information, while Apply in the Sky helps them get into school by providing them with the ideal workspace to write their applications once they have determined their target programs.
“We’re thrilled about our partnership with The Economist Online Fairs,” said Apply in the Sky’s co-founders, Emily Chiu and Chiara Piccinotti. "Finding the right business school can be difficult and time-consuming, and the Global MBA Forum makes it easier. Apply in the Sky completes the equation by empowering applicants to focus on what’s truly important: crafting the best possible application.”
The Global MBA Forum, which takes place entirely online, and The Economist’s partnership with Apply in the Sky are evidence of a growing trend among higher education institutions to embrace technology and web-based innovations as means of rethinking traditional processes like searching for the right academic program or applying to school.
