What Are Students Expecting from Business School?

Tuesday | November 20 | 2012 | 3:45 pm - 5:00 PM
Auditorium, National University of Singapore

What motivates both young graduates and experienced professionals to pursue graduate management education? What do they expect in terms of the academic experience, student life, and future careers? Are the expectations of students studying in India and Asia different from those of students in other parts of the world? These questions are key if your goal is to recruit students  who have realistic expectations about programme offerings, fit smoothly into your classrooms, and are well prepared for post-graduation careers. Understanding and meeting student expectations may also be the key to graduating satisfied alumni who can serve as future ambassadors for your school. This session will explore GMAC research and market data about candidate motivations and feature panelists who will share their best practices in student expectation management.
