If you are a student recruiter with an online presence you have no doubt come across webinars as a means to recruit students online from different parts of the globe. This fairly new way of universities creating an interactive webinar where they get the opportunity to showcase their courses, the university, the professors and the course directors themselves has proven to be a successful model to get potential students interested in the university and a specific mode of study.

Something that has come to pass through the student recruitment process for our company in the last year is the use of masterclasses as a means to show the people who are interested in the course exactly what it would be like to take a module or elective in their chosen course. This is a great way for the potential students to see what the professors are like, the type of material they will be learning from and also if the course will be of interest to them. The students also get a glimpse into the online virtual classroom and actually see what life is like as a student there. Armed with this crucial and vital information, students will have more of an idea what very important choice they will be making when it comes to picking the best university for them.

The beauty of a masterclass is that it has the opportunity to go viral during the session as so many people worldwide can log in and learn during the class. This is a great thing for universities and recruiters as it provides fantastic brand awareness and boost the name of the university. It can also be used as video merchandising afterwards to maintain online presence and as part of the digital marketing strategies of the business or university.

If a university wants to recruit students successfully and get more from the process of recruiting then this is definitely an effective tool to use to sway the students. Think of a masterclass as something that is crucial in networking online and keeping up a strong image and brand. For example a masterclass we hosted as part of a webinar for IE business school in Madrid Spain included an elective which is taught in IE´s Master in Market Research and Consumer Behavior program. The class was taught by Pedro Sanudo one of the course professors and we had great feedback from both the client (IE university) and also from the students taking part in the class themselves. It seems that virtual learning is becoming a powerful marketing tool that any recruiter should be including in their strategy for success.

Deciding where to study and in which school invest is a tough decision, this is why LinkedIn detected the necessity of creating a report that can serve as a guide for students and parents to decide which school to choose in order to obtain a desirable job after graduation.

Just recently the LinkedIn University Rankings Based on Career Outcomes − Undergraduate rankings in the United States came out. This report analyzed millions of alumni profiles to find out how schools stack up across a variety of careers and to determine which schools in the United States are best at launching graduates into desirable jobs.

How LinkedIn obtained the results of this ranking?

LinkedIn team found the top schools for each field of study: First, they identified the top companies where professionals from each professional career are choosing to work. Next, they found people on LinkedIn who work as a professional in X career and saw where they went to school. Finally, for each school, they found the percentage of these alumni who’ve landed to these jobs at these top companies, then compared the percentages to come up with the list.

From University to Career − The results of the ranking

The LinkedIn University Rankings Based on Career Outcomes − Undergraduate rankings in the United States report highlighted the careers of Accounting, Finance, Design, Marketing, Software Development & Media as the the top careers launching graduates into desirable jobs.

For all our busy international executives that are interested in leveling up their business career with an MBA, we did some research and give you some good insights about the hottest trend of the Online or Distance MBA programs:

Study an online MBAWhy you should do an Online MBA?

You shouldn’t, but you’d definitely could and that’s the important point! Recently a very successful businessman that had 27.000 employees, most of them business graduates, informed us he was looking to study an MBA program in order not to feel uncomfortable when managing people with higher education qualifications than himself. Of course, he coudn’t afford going back to the campus studies so an Online MBA was what he chose.

Why an MBA on the first place?

Research shows that the main reasons are to increase your earning potential, be more competitive when looking for senior role opportunities and learn to manage and oversee the work of your employees and heads of departments. Also, if you wish to successfully commercialize what you love doing by setting up your own business, an MBA is a must.

What’s the best timing for an MBA program?

If you already have some business experience or having your own company, you will be able to enjoy much more the benefits of an MBA. as in those cases, you’ll know what to expect from an MBA degree. Additionally, your personal ROI will be much higher as the MBA fees are an investment indeed. Regarding timing, never is a perfect moment however definitely now is better than ever as due to current market conditions the need for skilled managers are in high demand.

The 4 most popular benefits of an online MBA:

# 1 It’s never too late to become who you are

Age can be a psychological barrier as the MBA-interested individuals are unlikely to go back to class at their forties or fifties. That’s due to the lack of time, their family status and their very demanding business responsibilities, but let’s also face it: They have been away from onsite education for more than 20 years, which would definitely make them feel uncomfortable within a group at the age of their son or daughter. What would be the alternative? An online, distance or flexible MBA to tackle this issue.

Online MBA# 2 Take advantage of the extended international networking

Networking with international senior executives and managers is one of the key benefits of studying an MBA degree. An online program has the capacity to host much more international participants though, so you’ll have a bigger chance to meet representatives from more countries — an opportunity for enriching you international business knowledge and why not expanding your business?

# 3 You don’t need to move away to move forward

This is 2021 we live in — there is unlimited choice of universities to study at – and of course not everyone is able to move to a new country to gain a prestigious degree. Most well-known business schools do have a strong online version of MBA studies so you can select the best MBA for you based on your personal and professional criteria and not on the restricted location. From our research it shows that one of the best value for money MBAs currently comes from Pecs University in Hungary. Check them out here.

Study an MBA online# 4 An Online MBA can bring you closer by taking you further

If you are concerned that studying online will be like studying alone, there’s no need to worry at all. High-tech digital technologies enable dynamic interaction over the distance and the majority of the online MBA degrees offer very interactive models of studies:

    • Studio recorded lectures with notes written by the tutor so you can listen to your professor wherever you
    • Interactive live Q&A sessions with the tutor in real time
    • Workshops, discussions on course topics, consultations and presentations to tutors or exams commitees
    • Group assignments – preparation of business projects within work groups
    • Personal assignments – projects to track your advancement on a course every couple of weeks,
    • Live chats with the tutors and study assistants to answer any of your questions
    • Exams are a mix of online tests and assignments based on real time business situations.
    • An online platform – just like the faculty of a onsite university – with the curriculum, the studies timeline, the recordings, a mailbox for receiving personal evaluation and so much more included.

Do you want to find out more? Start by joining one of our upcoming Webinars on the Online MBA from Pecs University (Hungary) on the 9th of December.  Beatrix Lanyi, the Associate Professor, together with Maria Lajos (Admissions) will give insights why this new concept of this International MBA is something to consider.
