Recently during a market development trip to Ukraine, we met with several high potential candidates to discuss their profiles, motivations in choosing IE Business School and how they planned to fund their studies.  We met with 17 candidates in total, and most of the candidates we met with were very well prepared, and had a very clear financial plan in place.

As part of our activities in Ukraine we worked with MBA Strategy, a local firm that focuses on helping top candidates join elite international schools, to interact with top candidates in Kiev.  We also recorded an interview with them, and it’s now available on YouTube.  To see the video, click here.
