Thursday, 8 June 2023 - Amsterdam MBA Fair 2023

This year's fair includes several milestones!

  • A new sponsor/partner Bain & Company, Amsterdam office.
  • The first time the fair will be held before - instead of after - the summer.
  • A return to a face-to-face event after 2 virtual/online editions during the pandemic.
  • 20 of the world's leading business schools, more than ever before and a truly unique opportunity in Europe!

Are you a young professional with a few years' work experience in the public or private sector? Do your ambitions extend beyond the Netherlands? Are you considering a graduate business degree (e.g. MBA or Master of Business Administration) from a top-ranked international program to take your career to the next level?

The choice of school is critical to making your MBA a success. Factors which you should take into account include international reputation, specialization, one vs. two year program, US vs. Europe, alumni relations, campus etc. Most important is that you make the right choice for YOU!

Ivy Circle Netherlands with the support of Bain & Company offers you this unique opportunity to meet Admissions Directors and alumni from the world's top graduate business schools. During the fair, you will have the opportunity to ask questions about an MBA in general, compare schools and programs, learn more about those you're most interested in and see which best fit your competencies and ambitions. To help you make the right choice for YOU!
