TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Sep 1, 2015) - Kira Talent, the company behind Kira Academic, a talent assessment platform designed for university and college admissions, announces its upcoming live webinar: "The Secrets of the Top Business Schools: What Makes Them So Great?" Craig Morantz, the CEO of Kira Talent, and John Byrne, the Editor-in-Chief of Poets & Quants, will discuss their insights into the inner workings of the top business schools, which include Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Kellogg, Booth, Columbia and MIT Sloan. Byrne and Morantz will uncover what sets these schools apart from the rest, explaining how they handle recruitment, assessment, and yield.

"Working with the world's top business schools and examining the unique approaches each one takes to their own admissions, relations and internal operations has given the Kira team a profound understanding of what differentiates them from the rest of the pack," said Craig Morantz, CEO of Kira Talent. "With our experience and Byrne's expertise, we hope to strengthen the performance of other higher education institutions by providing tactical advice and ideas."
