You’re Invited!

Join us for a unique opportunity for admitted students to visit a class hosted by a current student and get 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 2019.

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 student life, careers, experiential learning, and participate in a networking reception with alumni, staff, faculty, current students, and other members of your class.
