Monday | February 8 | 2016 | 8:00 pm - 9:00 PM

The graduate management education (GME) industry is constantly evolving, making our work in admissions ever more challenging. It has grown exponentially, resulting in a broad offering of programs, formats and schools with ever more diverse student bodies. Candidate needs and behaviors have also evolved. Even with easy access to more information than ever, candidates expect individual treatment today as well as customized programs tailored specifically for them. This introductory session will provide an overview of how the industry has evolved, the forces affecting it, and current trends shaping its future.  It will begin a dialogue that will continue throughout the program regarding the challenges faced by new admissions professionals, and the opportunities to make our jobs easier by collaborating with key stakeholders in the admissions process.
