The MBA Tour

On August 2 – 4, the Brazil Gateway represented Ohio State’s Fisher College of Business at The MBA Tour in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, respectively.

The MBA Tour is an independent information source regarding MBA admissions that holds events to promote personal interaction between prospective MBA students, business school admissions representatives and alumni.

Brazil Gateway shared information about Fisher’s MBA programs and other graduate and professional programs with more than 300 Brazilians in both cities.

Universities from around the world were also present. Jane K. Aparecido, academic relations and alumni community manager at the Brazil Gateway, also participated in panels on “How to Finance your MBA,” where she shared her experience when applying to Ohio State in 2013.

“How to finance any type of education abroad is always a major topic for prospective students, especially during this time of financial difficulty in Brazil,” said Aparecido. “I shared my experience searching for scholarships, fellowships and loans when I was applying for my master’s at Ohio State back in 2013. People who attended the panel told me they were glad to hear a real story and see new possibilities and paths that can be helpful for them as well.”
