Registration for Spring Quarter 2011 Campus Visit Events Available

We are very excited to announce our Spring Quarter Campus Visit schedule!

Today, initial registration has opened for Spring class visits and information sessions. The first information session will be held on Monday, 28 March 2011. The first opportunity for class visits will be Thursday, 7 April 2011.

In addition, this is the first quarter that all MBA Classes will be held at the GSB's new home, the Knight Management Center (map).

Please be aware that attending one or more of our on-campus events is neither required nor expected. Our events offer a chance to experience a day at the GSB, but do not result in preferential treatment in the admission process.

So far for the winter quarter, we have accommodated about 150 class visitors!

We look forward to seeing you in the coming months.
Take care,
Joe Sicora
Admissions Coordinator
