Second Wave of International MBA Research Begins

March 26, 2010

Slover Linett is partnering with the Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants (AIGAC) to extend our joint study of MBA prospects, first conducted in early 2009. The new results will be presented at AIGAC’s annual conference in June at MIT’s Sloan School of Management.

The 2010 survey, which was launched this week, will examine how prospective MBA students around the world choose which business schools to apply to, what resources they use during their decision and application process, and what they hope to achieve with their degrees.

Responses to the online survey will be collected through the first week of April.

Graham Richmond, founder of Clear Admit and AIGAC’s president, says, “Last year both our members and MBA program admissions directors found the insights from this research extremely valuable. The study made it clear what drives prospects’ decisions and how best to reach them — something that helped many schools improve their communication strategies and plan more confidently.”

This year, for the first time, Slover Linett and AIGAC will make school-specific findings available to MBA programs in the US and abroad.

For more information, please contact Bill Hayward, Slover Linett’s senior associate for higher education by email or phone: 773.348.9215.

The Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants (AIGAC) defines and promotes professional excellence in serving graduate and professional school applicants worldwide. The association’s international membership is committed to upholding the highest ethical practices in graduate admissions advisory services.

AIGAC was formed in 2006 in response to the dramatic growth of graduate school admissions consulting. It helps the graduate school applicant community find qualified consultants to guide them in their search for the appropriate educational institution and environment in which to pursue graduate or professional studies.

Multiculturalism is key for creating inclusive arts experiences


Last month, Coca-Cola aired its now-famous Super Bowl ad depicting people from various racial, ethnic, and cultural groups singing “America the Beautiful” together in different languages. Among the instant outpouring of polarized reactions to this ad rang much praise for its depiction of a multicultural America. Yet the ad provoked a slew of negative responses as well. Many of the ad’s detractors questioned whether this multicultural America could ever feel as cohesive as an America whose citizens speak a common language, and therefore have taken great strides toward assimilating into a common culture.
