Choosing the right MBA has never been tougher. With over
1500 business schools in the US and Europe alone and new
ones opening almost daily across the globe, identifying the right
school to match your goals and aspirations is not easy. Only
a fraction will be suitable. Get it right and the rewards will be
immense. Get it wrong – you’ll have wasted an opportunity
of a lifetime.
“Today, an MBA is the most prestigious qualification in the
world” says Nunzio Quacquarelli, Director of World MBA Tour.
“It offers the potential for talented young professionals to place
themselves in the shop window for the highest paying recruiters
in the world”.
But success post-MBA depends on you making the right
“Remember your whole MBA experience and your
life post-MBA could be vastly different depending on
your choices of the type of MBA and the school you
attend” says Dr. Joern Meissner, Academic
Director of Manhattan Review.
Taking an MBA is like buying a house –
it can cost you a vast amount, plunge you
in to serious debt but should in the long
term pay off handsomely.
So how should you go about
identifying the right school?
