MBA is the hep world in today’s business scenario. If you have this degree you can go places. It can enable you to jump into the lower/middle management, it can help you getting lucrative pay hikes, which otherwise you wont be getting if you are working, say as an analyst.
Now, for Indian students its not always easy to qualify CAT and get into one of the IIMs. For those who have been unable to get into the IIMs, they shouldn’t be disheartened, because of the slurry of opportunities that have opened up in this global scenario that we are all living in.
The first thing you need to do if you want to apply to any university abroad is to give GMAT, as most of the colleges require this score. Secondly, and most importantly, the thing that one needs to keep in mind is that you should get full “value for your money” (unless you are deeply interested in doing a particular kind of a specialisation available in only specific institutes) when it comes to chosing colleges for sending applications.
When I say “value for money”, I mean that one should focus at the kind of jobs and placements that one is getting, after graduating, proportionate to the amount that one has to invest in order to get the degree.
Having figured out the best possible value for money, or even before that, one can ask as to why one should be doing an MBA from a different region? The answer to this lies in the immense advantages that one gets having done so.
The list is endless but the things that you should know are: firstly, it gives you a broader perspective when it comes to both individual and business sense and secondly and most importantly, in this increasing age of Globalization, there will be an increasing requirement for a workforce which is better able to understand the ways of working of both the Worlds (i.e. east and west).
For those who are not experienced, can go for Masters in Management programs offered by certain institutes in Europe (e.g. ESCP Europe and HEC in Paris) which provide immense value for your money. (More information regarding the same can be got from mailing firstname.lastname@example.org )
