Choosing the right business school

If you want to get a Master of Business Administration (MBA) you will have to decide which business school you want to get it from. Since you will probably only get one MBA in your life you should take some time and do detailed research before you select a school. Besides a university’s reputation, some important factors to keep in mind when making this decision are: the format of the MBA program, the costs, location, academic community, alumni network and possibly also family-friendliness of the school. In this Financial Times article, these factors are discussed in more detail and special attributes of MBA programs at business schools, such as Stanford, INSEAD and Canadian business schools are presented. You can also watch a video, in which the Head of MBA Recruitment of Cambridge’s Judge Business School is interviewed on the topic “getting your MBA abroad”.
