UBM Asia presents virtual MBA fair

HONG KONG - UBM Asia (http://www.ubmasia.com ) announced today the launch of its first virtual trade show for business schools, MBA Wired APAC (http://www.mbawired.com ).
Participants from anywhere across the globe will be able to chat live with representatives of international business schools, network with other candidates, watch school and program presentations, download MBA profiles and attend real-time webcasts, all without having to leave their home or office.
The first MBA Wired Virtual Event will be held on June 3rd, 2010, and will host a range of schools from Asia, Europe and the USA, who will be presenting their MBA, eMBA and online MBA programs. Additional information on careers, salaries, entry tests such as GMAT and TOEFL, will be part of the event's live discussions and presentations.
MBA Wired is scheduled to take place in East Asia's early evening. This will allow candidates from APAC to take part after work, while representatives from business schools in Europe and the U.S. will be logging in during work hours.
"Offering business schools the chance to get to know candidates online meets the need for more efficient matching, saving time and energy on both sides," said Jerome Hainz, Manager, eBusiness, UBM Asia.
"Schools spend a considerable part of their marketing budgets on running road shows overseas, quite often without knowing the type of candidates they will meet. MBA Wired provides them with the platform to get in touch with international candidates prior to face-to-face meetings," he said.
The virtual setting allows admissions officers to staff their booths independently of physical locations with school representatives from all levels, as well as students and alumni. "Imagine the impact a school can make if a candidate can first chat in English with the dean, who logs in from his office in Paris, then chat in his native language with a countryman based in a campus in Asia and finally talk to an alumni working in London, all on the same platform at the same time," stated Hainz.
While the live portion of the virtual event takes place at a specific time, the presentations, documents, videos, webcasts and other content will be archived and available to the online community 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Admissions officers can continue the interactive dialogue long after the live events are held.
MBA Wired APAC will be the first truly international MBA fair as candidates can make use of the virtual environment to attend the event not only from Asia but from all parts of the world.
