Want to snag a seat at a top MBA program? Then, you don't want to miss this event. In a live chat on Thursday, Sept. 29 from noon to 1 p.m. (EDT), you'll be able to get the scoop from two insiders from The MBA Exchange: Dan Bauer, managing director, and Kimberly Raynor-Smith, senior admissions consultant. The MBA Exchange is a Chicago-based educational counseling firm that helps applicants get into top B-schools. Bauer and Raynor-Smith will take your questions and offer advice on everything from GMAT scores to interviews.
A Harvard Business School MBA alumnus, Bauer launched MBA Exchange in 1996 after having interviewed HBS applicants for three years. He has served as senior vice-president for global marketing and sales at MasterCard International and vice-president for national marketing at Citibank. Before arriving at The MBA Exchange in 2004, Raynor-Smith was an associate director of admissions at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. She has also worked as an MBA recruiter for Bain & Co. and Boston Consulting Group.
Your host for this live chat will be Jack Dierdorff (BWJack), consulting editor of BusinessWeek Online and former managing editor of the magazine.
Hope to see you there!
