The QS World MBA Tour, featuring hundreds of influential business schools such as Duke, Machester, IE, CEU, Vlerick, and GISMA begins its "Spring 2009 tour" and comes to Bulgaria at the beginning of March. Fair will take place in Sofia on 17 March.

The Tour, in its 15th year, will visit over 40 countries with over 360 of the world's international top business schools. This all-inclusive suite of educational events has become the world’s most successful event of its kind and has helped place thousands of MBA candidates in top business schools of their choice.

The fair provides MBA candidates the chance to meet face-to-face with the admissions officers and alumni of business schools as they shortlist the right school for their MBA studies. It is packed full of information on full-time programs, fees, admissions, scholarships, financial aid, the GMAT test and graduate MBA career opportunities.
