Top Five Reasons to Participate in JumpStart’s Path2MBA
- Receive guidance on how to prepare for the path to an MBA.
JumpStart works in collaboration with academic partners to break down the idea of pursuing an MBA, the application process, life in business school, and various MBA programs and their applications processes. This knowledge can be used to apply for business in the coming year or later.
- Connect with admissions officers for in-person insight into top MBA programs.
JumpStart can put you in direct contact with admissions officers from top MBA programs. Forum sessions include “Meet the MBA Program,” school overviews, topic-based workshops, networking sessions and one-on-one chats.
- Get guidance and coaching specific to your application your resume reviewed and prepare for your interview.
Professionals are available to consult you about your game plan, application, essay, and resume and provide feedback in alignment with best practices to gain admission. There are also interview prep working sessions and opportunities to schedule a 1:1 interview.
- Take advantage of prospective candidate opportunities.
Many MBA programs offer on-campus experiences for prospective candidates. However, these experiences are by invitation only. JumpStart’s Path2MBA Forum provides a unique opportunity to learn about these and other offerings, such as deferral programs and application fee waivers.
- Get Your MBA Application Fee Waived.
Several of our MBA program partners waive application fees for the JumpStart Network. This could mean over $200 in savings per MBA program you choose to apply to.
Applications are currently being reviewed and acceptance decisions will be communicated on a rolling basis.
