Best Country to Get MBA From? [#permalink] New post 20 Aug 2013, 22:16
I am beffudled for not able to choose the country :? . I went through a lot of conversations in gmat forum and also visited different sites but I am unable to find the answers. I like to do MBA in a little bit economic way. I read a forum in gmat only which went like :

USA : Best in education but Visa (H1-B)/Job market for international students getting worse these days
UK : Another good country in terms of education but Visa regulations even tougher.
Canada : Good in education but Job market is not that good
Australia : ok in education but Job market not that good for MBAs, It's good for IT professionals.
Singapore/HongKong : good in education but job market is good for Finance not for General management roles in IT industry.
China : Ok in education, best Job market but Language is a problem."

Are these informations enough to influence my decision. I made up my mind that I would go for Australia but then after reading this forum Singapore might be an option for me due to its low cost of living compared to those developed countries. What sort of problem may I face if my choise is USA? I am tottering here there and also couldn't rely on these informations. As I need some expert advise so this is best place that came to my mind. Kindly help me with the relevant informations by not compromising the education and the placements.

Well, there is briefing of my background. I have done B.Tech in I.T. and working in a Government sector over 1 year. I like to do MBA from well recognized university to boost my career and also to get a managment level job. I know atleast 3 years of experience is required for pursuing MBA

Thank you,
Deya.

Deya,
There is really no objective answer to the question "From which country should I get my MBA?" because this is not an objective question. :)
A number of factors go into the selection of the right B-school. 6 factors top this list:
1. Profile Fitment
2. Geography
3. 1 year versus 2 year programs
4. Rankings and reputation
5. Specializations offered
6. Other B-school specific information that you'd get through research and by interacting with alums/current students

We have written a series of articles on each of these parameters. I think this may help. :)

Deya,

I think you lack work experience and should be spending a few more years at your job, making your professional profile stronger. To clarify a myth- most b-schools do not place a requirement as such to have 3 years work experience, although some European B-schools do have it. Some b-schools require 2 years work exp, while others may prefer it. Each b-school is different and has different requirements. Its best not to club them under a stereotype; rather check out their FAQ section to know their eligibility criteria.

Location- US/Canada is different from Australia or from Europe and you may have preference for working in any one of these continents - atleast for the first 2-3 years after the MBA or until you decide to move back to your own country. So the location of your education has to be a personal decision. You have to see what works out best for you.

What you should do now is to browse through the websites of some of the top programs all over the world- you can use the Financial Times ranking as a starting point. B-schools have their own personalities - get acquainted with it and form your own opinions based on that.

Well, still.... don't mean to be biased, but unless you know for SURE that you want to work outside the US, the US is by far the best place to do an MBA (if we are talking about the best schools). The brand prestige that comes from a Top US schools cannot by matched by any school anywhere (it's because the US invented the MBA). And if you graduate from a top school, you will find a job. And even the lower ranked schools in the US tend to have better programs, more prestige, and better employment opportunities than lower-ranked schools elsewhere.

Of course if you PREFER to live elsewhere, the point is moot.
