Now, I have some budget constraints for my MBA. Although my parents are in good financial position, I do not want to trouble them for my education. In fact, I want to finance my education using my own means. I have saved ~1 million INR ( 20K USD) for my education. I can go for the loan for the rest of the amount, but I need to keep the capital required for my MBA to as low as possible. With this thing in mind, I have prepared a b-school list for me, which, I believe, have "best value for mba" colleges.
