Would you like to become more effective in your Admissions practice? Gain perspective and understand the current graduate management education (GME) landscape? Answer ranking related questions with confidence? Maximize your outreach efforts? Interview more effectively? In essence, master the Admissions process while strengthening your professional network?

AINP Europe is a partnership between EFMD and GMAC (Graduate Management Admission Council) that combines the expertise, networks and knowledge of two of the industry’s leading bodies to deliver a robust programme essential for every new professional in admissions.

Programme Overview

AINP Europe is unlike anything currently offered in the market. Designed as a cohort learning, executive education experience, this comprehensive programme utilizes a combined learning methodology that includes lectures, cases, group discussions, workshops, and individual contribution to help participants master the admissions profession. Experiential learning is key. As part of an interactive classroom environment, you will discuss the Cave Hill Business School Case Study. Cave Hill, which is a fictitious business school based in the European city of Londrid, faces a myriad of challenges including a fall in the Financial Times ranking and a need to increase total applications to ensure intake quality.

The programme will provide you with a deep dive into three foundational modules: Context, Outreach, and Evaluation.

Context. The best admissions tools are useless if not applied within the right context. AINP Europe will explore the graduate management education (GME) landscape, including the forces that have shaped its evolution, like rankings. As well, the programme will provide insight into the mindset of current and future applicants, which can help orient your practices going forward.

Outreach. The outreach module provides the necessary tools to maximize outreach activities throughout the candidate, student and graduate lifecycle, including: enhancing recruiting events; engaging candidates utilizing different marketing tools; becoming an effective career coach; managing your message when selling to different demographic groups and sizes; and tailoring and implementing effective yield management strategies.

Evaluation. The evaluation module will teach you to review an application and prepare for an interview; interview effectively; and implement effective strategies for crafting a class.
