MBA Matching Platform Unimy Revolutionizes MBA Search and Application Process for Students and Schools

Artificial Intelligence #AI tools are reshaping industries and processes worldwide. Now AI is changing how aspiring graduate business students worldwide evaluate potential programs.

Launched earlier this year, Unimy offers a revolutionary approach to the traditional MBA research and application process. Designed to help candidates select their best school fit and most suitable program from all accredited business schools worldwide, the platform uses unique tools—such as its proprietary AI Matching tool and Cultural Fit test, among three others. It is the only platform where students can browse, research, and apply to the world’s accredited MBA programs via a streamlined, effective five-step process.

Five steps to the perfect MBA match

Candidates can decide which of the six steps to take and which to skip, although for best results the platform’s creators suggest completing all five.

  1. Browse is suitable for people who know very well what they are looking for and are certain about the limitations and criteria they would not compromise on. Students can perform exhaustive, tailored searches using multiple filters.
  2. Match answers the question “Which school do people like me tend to apply to?” Candidates create the detailed profile that is needed for the most precise matching. Using AI algorithms, this is then quickly matched to hundreds of programs worldwide to identify the top 10 schools to which candidates with similar demographics, professional experience and relevant personal characteristics have applied. Unimy’s AI Matching Tool is the result of 15 years’ experience in higher education and over 200,000 One-to-One meetings between business school prospects and admission teams in 65 countries.
  3. Fit addresses those asking themselves “Will I feel like I belong if I get admitted to a school I have selected?” To give candidates a different perspective of their Top 3 potential schools, the Cultural Fit Test uses a short survey where six cultural dimensions are measured. The survey was developed after a two-year study of business schools’ culture and organizational behavior, with the aim of delivering insights on how a candidate’s cultural expectations compare to the cultural practices typical to different schools, and how they would fit there. This unique tool is inspired by the importance of cultural fit in the workplace—because just like when applying for a new job, it is crucial to get a sense of the culture of your chosen school and whether you belong there.
  4. Consult enables candidates to get advice in an individual, live consultation. If desired, candidates can contact Unimy’s orientation experts to discuss MBA options in more detail.
  5. Connect provides a first-hand experience of the MBA at preferred school(s). Webinars and chats put future students in direct contact with alumni for questions and discussion about a school’s application process and culture.

Prospects and schools enjoy a unique experience of MBA discovery

Explore, discover, immerse, compare, connect, join—from browsing MBA programs to applying for admission, Unimy offers it all in one place. The platform aims to connect prospective MBA candidates with business schools around the world, providing tailored matching.

Backed by global expertise in higher education

Unimy is the brainchild of Advent Group, a world leader in higher education marketing and orientation consulting. Fifteen years ago, Advent Group invented the One-to-One meeting event format that has now become a standard in worldwide graduate education MBA orientation and recruitment. Today, Advent Group hosts nearly 200 events annually on six continents, connecting thousands of candidates to leading MBA programs globally.

We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
