Annual Conference

The AIGAC Conference is designed to increase your professional resources and contacts, as well as to keep you updated on the latest trends and changes in the graduate application process. Our members have said that our conference is like a family reunion because you develop such a great network of colleagues with whom you can share your experiences and learn. Each spring, our conference provides a chance to re-energize with peers before returning to the trenches of the application season.

Like you, we have been closely monitoring the global spread of COVID-19. Following discussions with our annual conference host school, IESE, and learning of the travel restrictions imposed upon many admissions personnel, the AIGAC Board has voted to hold our 2020 annual conference virtually, on Monday, May 18 and Tuesday, May 19, 2020. For those of you not yet registered for our conference, we hope that this virtual format enables more of you to participate!

We are pleased to offer this amazing opportunity to come together with colleagues and benefit from having an audience with admissions directors, in an interactive format. The event will feature some of your favorite conference activities, such as admissions case studies as well as new programming with admissions officers addressing how their schools and admissions offices are responding to changing global circumstances.

Program will be announced shortly!

Listen to AIGAC member Maria Wich-Vila tell you what the AIGAC conference means to her!


By Donna Bauman, Stratus Admissions Counseling

To say that the AIGAC conference exceeded my expectations is an understatement. I literally have used something I learned from the conference just about EVERY DAY since in my work with my clients and colleagues at Stratus Admissions Counseling. One of the biggest benefits is just having such a deeper understanding of the “culture” and “fit” at each program we visited. They were all amazing programs, but it was clear to me that each has a distinct “personality.” As consultants, we help our clients by sharing these insights and encouraging them to go beyond the surface in discovering these nuances for themselves.
