Amy Mitson, Tuck Great diversity in candidates. Will attend again next year Michelle Lovell, University of Florida Impressed with the quality and interest level Laurie Shunney, Cornell Last year s World MBA Tour in Atlanta proved to be a rich source of MBA candidates with substantial work experience. Anne C. Cooper, Georgia - Terry Good number of very interesting candidates, especially fruitful for diversity and women contact Judith Hodara, Wharton Great Candidates. Highly Qualified K. Dougherty, Kogod School of Business Great leads, serious applicants Aurora Goicocnea, University of Miami Los Angeles Registrations Fall 2007: 1,163 GMAT test takers: 18,082 Regional Population: 13 million Media Partners: Los Angeles Times, Business Week The Los Angeles Fair consistently delivers one of the biggest and most diverse audiences in North America. The broad mix of both US and international candidate profiles, with wide ranging academic and professional backgrounds, is consistent with a city that is the media, industrial, communication, financial, fashion and distribution centre of the West. The 2007 Fair confirmed LA s strategic importance as one of the largest diversity recruitment markets in North America, providing an excellent source of Hispanic and black candidates. Houston Registrations Fall 2007: 454 GMAT test takers: 10,649 Regional Population: 2.1million Media Partners: Houston Chronicle, Business Week As the state with the third highest number of GMAT test takers and as the fourth largest city in the US, and a city which draws candidates from all over the South, Houston is another must on the US recruiting schedule. Despite going up against a big college football Saturday, our Houston Fair in 2007 attracted a sizeable, quality crowd. European and Asian schools present expressed their satisfaction in meeting many outward looking candidates. Houston s economy is diversified over eight key industries, and the region possesses a highly trained and highly skilled workforce. High oil prices have helped the city stay second in the nation for job growth. Houston has 18 Fortune 500 companies and has been designated the best city in the US to start a new business. The Houston Chronicle, undoubtedly the key print media in the region, really excelled as a Fair partner for the third time. Atlanta Registrations Fall 2007: 388 GMAT test takers: 4,802 (Georgia) Population: 5.1 million Media Partners: Creative Loafing, Business Week With one of the larger GMAT audiences in the USA, several top universities, a low tax base that has encouraged rapid business development, Atlanta is an important strategic recruitment market. Ranked fourth among US cities with the most Fortune 500 headquarters; including UPS, The Coca-Cola Company, and The Home Depot, the city is also among the top five fastest-growing high technology areas in the US, for the likes of IBM, HP and BellSouth, but also a range of venture capital incubators founded by McKinsey & Co, Accenture and many others. Miami Registrations Fall 2007 : 370 GMAT test takers: 7,532 (Florida) Population: 2.2 million Media Partners: Miami Herald, El Nuevo Herald, Business Week With the fourth highest number of test-takers in the US, Miami is a must in addition to being a unique gateway for the economies of Central and Latin America. The Fair attracts young professionals from countries such as Cuba, Columbia and Venezuela. Many Fortune 500 companies and over 330 multinational corporations have Latin America divisions in Miami. Additionally, 100 banks, 20 foreign trade offices and 29 bi-national chambers of commerce are here. A combination of local and national media promotion will ensure we attract the best candidates to the Fair

19 Europe City Profiles Tel Aviv Registrations Fall 2007: 563 GMAT test takers: 2,761 Population: 350,000 Media Partner: Yoram.co.il, Haaretz, The Marker Israel boasts the highest number of GMAT test-takers in Europe. A fantastic Fall 2007 debut Fair confirmed Tel Aviv as one of the best MBA recruitment cities in the Mediterranean. With many international banks, technology and consulting companies, the city has rightly been dubbed Israel s economic capital. Working with Fulbright, Yoram, Haaretz and several other partners will ensure another great event in Kiev Registrations Fall 2007: 1,215 GMAT test takers: 116 Population: 2.7 million Media Partners: & Strategy Magazine, MBA Strategy, Headhunter.com.ua The First Lady s MBA degree has stimulated a surge in demand in MBA education amongst Ukrainian professionals. Even though The World Bank classifies Ukraine as a middle-income state, job offers in Kiev now compete with offers from other business capitals. The rapidly growing economy, our exceptional portfolio of media partners, and great candidate profiles, all contribute to making Kiev one of the growth market opportunities for MBA recruitment in Moscow Registrations Fall 2007: 1,346 GMAT test takers: 691 Population: 10.1 million Media Partners: The Moscow Times, MBA Consult The most expensive city and one of the top cities in the world for billionaires, Moscow needs little introduction. Russia occupies the fourth place in the world in IPOs in 2007; and is experiencing a recruitment boom. This trend is supported by a rapidly growing wealthy middle-class whose children want to study an MBA abroad with no need for scholarships, combined with strong demand for Executive MBAs. Career placement results for Russian students are likely to remain exceptional, encouraging schools to maintain their commitment to this market. Good quality/good questions - mostly well informed already Craig Hubbell, UCLA Loved it, great, number of leads relative to size of school, great quality of leads, amazing! David Edwards, Queens Business School Of the Fairs on the European tour this was the highest level of interest I ve seen. Great event! Chris Storer, Boston University Overall the traffic was good and we will generate good leads. Cheryl Millington, Toronto-Rotman Very good potential candidates Ged Drugan, Manchester Business School Thank you for a great opportunity to take part in the Pre-Fair Panel in Kiev. The Fair itself was great and we had a lot of interest in our courses. Hanna Anders, Cass Business School Strong leads Natasha Wilson, Cambridge - Judge Best calibre of Fairs in which I have participated Ben Yee, TRIUM Good quality candidates this year Janet Shaner, IMD Istanbul Registrations Fall 2007: 934 GMAT test takers: 1,163 (Turkey) Population: 12.2 million Media Partners: Hurriyet, Ekonomist, Mezun.com, CNN Turk, YENIBIRIS Turkey is one of the top five countries for sending students overseas for postgraduate study. The country has high numbers of GMAT test takers. Our Fairs, through a combination of press and TV campaigns, attract the majority of the local audience interested in MBA study. Our TV Media partner CNN Turk features an extensive interview about the event. A large attendance of both highly experienced and some younger candidates is guaranteed. Athens Registrations Fall 2007: 683 GMAT test takers: 1,496 Population: 3.7 million (Metropolitan) Media Partner: Study Smart, IHT Kathimerini The Greek economy is very healthy, with rising income levels bolstering an already very strong study abroad market. Greece has consistently been one of the largest sources of postgraduate students abroad and interest in business education is rising, partly stimulated by the regular MBA supplements and features produced by the QS World MBA Tour marketing team. We highly recommend working with our media partners in Greece, where business professionals still read the newspapers, for pre-fair research. Excellent organization of the Fair and support from the QS Team Navdeep Uppal, Aston This is our first visit and we will definitely come back! Kelly Wilson, University of Pittsburgh Excellent leads, great venue Haley Whitlock, Darden Very well informed candidates Konstantinos Tsoukalas, IE Business School This Fair was a lot better than I expected with students having a fair amount of knowledge of Thunderbird s programs Tom Brennan, Thunderbird The candidates I spoke with were high quality Patrick Orosako, Bentley College

20 Excellent Fair, Gracias por la organization! Jerome Verhueven, ESADE Great Fair again Peter Rafferty, Vlerick Leuven Gent Not quantity but quality! Jenny Erikson, Chicago GSB Executive MBA Good for Exec MBAs Anthea Milner, Oxford, Said Business School Our first Spring fair in Bucharest was an undoubted success. It s such an exciting part of the world, with a growing economy and an incredible pool of talent. We will look forward to returning! Cassandra Pittman, INSEAD Fabulous fair - good quality of visitors, many of whom had taken the time to evaluate what, who and how Helen Wain, Warwick St Gallen has consistently recruited high performing students from Romania who go on to excellent careers. From what I see today the future looks good for the region. Oliver Mathews, St Gallen A strong pool of potential candidates including many engineers, doctors etc. A lot of strong female candidates! Wharton Excellent Fair, very important for HEC strategically and, as always, QS s organization is unbeatable. Quality of leads = +++ Laurence Bonnet, HEC Excellent as always, thanks to the dedicated QS team Hilde Deschoemaeker, INSEAD EMBA Madrid Registrations Fall 2007: 632 GMAT test takers: 678 (Spain) Population: 5.1 million Media Partner: Expansion y Empleo, Mastermas. After an economic boom, the Spanish economy is slowing and this is forecast to create renewed interest in MBA education among job-seekers who have left lucrative jobs in banking, technology and construction. Expansion y Empleo has committed to front-page announcements and a special MBA feature in October Our media relations and PR campaign generates articles appearing in all the top Spanish media, and helps us attract an audience of very high quality young professionals. In addition, several major web portals will be supporting the Fair for the first time in Zurich Registrations Fall 2007: 464 GMAT test takers: 794 (Switzerland) Population: 333,832 Media Partner: Alpha / Tages Anzeiger, Bilan, Bilanz, Swissstyle The financial heart of Switzerland, Zurich has proven to be a source of a large number of experienced and serious MBA applicants. Schools report very good conversion rates from leads generated. After Moscow, Zurich is the wealthiest non-eu city in Europe. It is the headquarters for UBS, Credit Suisse and Zurich Financial Services, three of the world s top ten financial services companies. Zurich is also home to many of the world s largest private client investment and insurance companies. Many will be looking to re-skill through full-time and Executive MBA programs. Bucharest NEW IN FALL!! Registration Spring 2007: 845 GMAT test Takers: 169 Population: 1.94 million Media Partners: Evenimentul Zilei The Tour visits Bucharest for the first time in the Fall, based on the great success of our first Spring Fair and requests from many European and US schools. As an emerging market and recent entrant to the European Union, Romania has been able to attract significant inward investment from international companies and a large, expatriate community. The demand for business education among local professionals is very high and rapid growth in salaries is making an overseas MBA an attractive proposition. MBA supplements in the leading business media from HR Associations ensure we can reach the best Romanian managers. Paris Registrations Fall 2007: 1,181 GMAT test takers: 2,246 (France) Population: 11.3 million Media Partner: Le Figaro, Entreprises & Emploi The Paris Fair has established a reputation over 13 years for attracting, year-on-year, the 100+ best schools and the 1,000+ best candidates; young professionals with diverse and exciting work experience. Our partner, Le Figaro publishes a 6-page editorial feature, which is reinforced by extensive articles in Courrier Cadres, Les Echos and other publications. Attendance remains considerably higher than other events in Paris
