According to the GMAC Application Trends Survey Report 2018, overall application volumes to graduate business programs were steady in 2018, and an overwhelming majority of programs reported that their candidate pools were similarly — or even more — academically qualified compared with the previous year’s. 

While steady demand and increasing applicant quality is great news for business schools, many admissions offices now need to extend limited resources as they process more applications and take a more holistic approach to considering applicants. During this session, deans and directors from three business schools, both public and private, will explore the common obstacles faced by their admissions staff.

View the webinar, How to Do More with Less: The Essential Tools in 3 Business Schools’ Admissions Toolkits, to:

  • Explore common obstacles faced by GME admissions office staff. 
  • Discuss best practices around stretching limited resources to accomplish institutional goals for GME admissions. 
  • Discover the essentials for a GME admissions toolkit that can be used on your campus.
