You’re Invited!

Join us for a unique opportunity for both prospective and admitted students who have not had the opportunity to come on campus to visit a class, be hosted by a current student and receive more information about the Full-Time MBA. This event will allow you to experience life as a Full-Time MBA student so you can picture yourself as part of class of 2020.

MBA students identified a class visit as one of the most useful experiences towards their decision to pursue an MBA degree. Attending a class allows prospective MBA candidates to experience the program first-hand and engage with current MBA students. In addition to the class visit you will have the opportunity to experience the Carlson MBA through sessions on careers, experiential learning, and participate in a networking reception with alumni, staff, faculty, current students, and other members of your class.

The event will take place in the Carlson School of Management Building. Your check in point for the event will be on the second floor of our building in the Executive Center. Please note that if you come in the front of the building you will have to go up one level to reach the Executive Center, if you park in the 19th Avenue lot and use the skyway, you will aleady be on the second floor.

The check in point will be well marked. Please follow the signs and balloons.

If you are driving, please see the parking information below under "locals." If you are from out of town, please view the "non locals" tab to learn more about getting to the event.
