Announcing MBA LaunchPad 2008

We’re pleased to announce MBA LaunchPad 2008 — our first annual event designed to help business school-bound students prepare to hit the ground running from the moment they set foot on campus. MBA Launchpad 2008 will be held on August 5th and 6th in New York City at NYU’s Kimmel Center.

For years we have helped applicants get into the most competitive business schools, and many of them have asked us, “No that I’m in, what do you recommend for classes or materials to help me do well once I get there?” Knowing that the first couple of months are crucial to a business school student’s success, we decided to build our own program to help students tackle the three most important aspects of an MBA program:

Veritas Prep has assembled a team of world-class professors from elite business schools including Columbia and Stern. They won’t simply teach you the basics of the core MBA subjects — instead they will show you how to effectively approach these topics and achieve the highest grades without wasted effort.

Career Management
MBA LaunchPad has brought together business school graduates who successfully landed job offers from the most competitive firms in management consulting, investment banking, healthcare, and other industries. Step by step, they will show you how to use networking to land competitive job interviews, and ultimately ace every type of interview, from finance-focused formats to consulting cases.

Extracurricular Involvement
At MBA LaunchPad current business school students will teach you how to network effectively in order to build personal and professional relationships that will last a lifetime. They will also give you candid advice on where you should and shouldn’t spend your time outside the classroom — giving you a crucial advantage as you manage your hectic schedule.

The two days will also feature social events and networking opportunities to give you a chance to meet other like-minded new MBA students.

Registration is $1,200, and is open until August 1, or until it fills up (whichever comes first). Veritas Prep clients are eligible for a substantial discount. Visit the MBA LaunchPad 2008 site to learn more and to register!
