Twitter Thursdays: News from MBA Programs
Welcome to another installment of Twitter Thursdays, a weekly column in which we highlight the latest updates from the top MBA programs on Twitter! For those who missed last week’s maiden post, think of Twitter Thursdays as a way to stay on top of what’s happening in the MBA admissions world – this time with a focus on words (or in this case ‘tweets’) from the schools themselves. Also, if you’re not following us already, be sure to check out Clear Admit on Twitter for updates, special prizes, admissions tips and breaking news.
The Haas School’s Dean mingled with their alumni in Los Angeles and revealed a “surprising” post-MBA statistic. Meanwhile, across the country, UCLA / Anderson’s Dean, Judy Olian, rubbed elbows with alums in Boston. Having hosted a few alumni events in Athens and Spain, Stanford GSB shared briefings from the events. Rose Martinelli, Chicago Booth’s Associate Dean of Admissions, also related some alumni news regarding three graduates’ start-up success.
The Johnson School celebrated its admission to the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, an organization for promoting diversity and inclusion in American business. The Tuck School of Business is already knee-deep in the academic school year, sharing plenty of professors’ research. Meanwhile, the Kellogg School of Management continued its steady stream of insight and research, as conducted by their notable professors. The Wharton School is gearing up for the Joseph Wharton awards ceremony, which happens to take place on the day of their Round 1 deadline!
While these are just highlights of what the leading MBA programs have been “tweeting” over the past week, we certainly encourage our readers to fill their personal Twitter needs by finding out who to follow through our Twitter Index. The MBA Admissions Twitter Index is hosted within the Clear Admit Wiki (a free resource which many applicants have come to depend on for first-hand accounts of MBA interviews, and general admissions-related updates). For more fill of the top MBA programs, check out this list of admissions officers and schools’ news feeds. We’ve also compiled lists of current MBA students and alumni as well as current MBA applicants who are on Twitter.
If you’re on Twitter, let us know! E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your user name and status as an MBA applicant, student or admissions officer so we can add you to the appropriate Twitter Index. Happy “tweeting” and we’ll see you next week with some more Twitter updates!
