Sign up before 30 September for one-to-one meetings with Admissions Directors at the world’s top business schools

The prestigious Access MBA Tour will take place in Geneva this year at the Beau Rivage Hotel on 4 October. With a ground-breaking One-to-One event concept, Access MBA helps business professionals tap into the global leadership pool by matching them with international business school programs.   A pioneer in the organization of One-to-One educational events, the Access MBA Tour features over 125 business schools and visits more than 65 cities per year. The Tour gives candidates the unique opportunity to meet Admissions Directors from some of the world’s best business schools during individual, face-to-face meetings.

One-to-One meetings: The first step to admission
Access MBA is based on a simple and original concept: a candidate has twenty minutes to illustrate his or her suitability for admission, as well as to objectively evaluate which MBA program is the best for his or her career and aspirations. Upon registering online for a One-to-One event, candidates are hand-selected, contacted over the phone, and matched to the best business schools for them by their team of expert consultants.

ecolint90thbirthday1

The world's oldest, biggest and possibly most famous international school marked its 90th birthday in style on Wednesday 17 September 2014, with the entire population of students and staff assembling on the three campuses of the International School of Geneva (Ecolint). All dressed in blue and white, the occasion was marked with songs, speeches and birthday cake for all.

It was an occasion for both celebration and reflection. Ecolint's Director General, Vicky Tuck, noted how much the world has changed in those ninety years, but said that the original vision of the school's founders - an internationally oriented child-centred education for peace - is as important today as ever. She joined in the celebrations on all three campuses and was later interviewed on the local English-language radio station, WRS.

At a special inauguration ceremony held on Thursday, 5 September, the international school, GEMS World Academy, invited author, Douglas Kennedy to open its new Discovery World Library and World Language Learning Center in Etoy, Vaud.

Timed to coincide with the annual literary festival in Morges, Le Livre sur les Quais in Morges, the event was one of many special occasions organized to help children explore the world of literature. As an official sponsor of the festival, the school welcomed a number of authors and illustrators into their classes, where they ran creative workshops for students throughout the day leading up to the evening event.

La Côte International School (LCIS) has just moved to a brand new, purpose-built campus in Aubonne, Vaud.  Set amidst the apple orchards and vineyards overlooking Lake Geneva, the campus provides an inspirational location for 50 staff and over 200 students, currently enrolled in the school.

Like many new schools emerging in the region, the LCIS campus building has been constructed using environmentally-friendly techniques and materials.  In line with the school’s teaching style, the facilities incorporate the very latest building technology and include an impressive new sports hall, an on-site theatre, and an outdoor classroom.

llis trialperiods

While most parents will have already sorted out places for their children in local schools, there is a small group of families who are still looking for the best school for their kids.

To help parents during this difficult decision-making process, Lake Léman International School (LLIS) in Morges, Vaud, is inviting students to come and experience their school for a day, and is also offering last-minute enrolments for the 2014-15 academic year. This is a great opportunity, especially if you’ve recently moved to Switzerland from abroad and your kids are having trouble adjusting to the new environment and school system.  The school welcomes children from the ages of 3 to 14.

Parents are welcome to visit the school and speak to teachers about dealing with any feelings of apprehension, anxiety or frustration that can arise when starting at a new school. A no-obligation trial run at LLIS should help to make the transition as smooth as possible.
