Hult International Business School [#permalink] New post 26 Mar 2011, 04:30
Hi all!

I got an admit in Hult International Business School to pursue MS in Finance at San-Francisco campus (2011-12)
and a scholarship of $6000.

Has anyone heard of this school??
FT rankings 2011 for MBA ranked this school at 61 and other rankings are posted in the official web-site of the Business School.
There has been a significant improvement in the rankings over past few years... (FT 2010 - 94, FT 2011 - 61)

Can someone suggest me if i should take it.. and also about the placements of this Business School if it is not too much of trouble!!

Thanks.

Thanks Tarkaston for the thread.

I was wondering about the off-campus jobs at San-Francisco and placements after the course at Hult.
I have a huge loan to handle if i accept the offer (20 lakhs)...
Please help me out with the current scenario there in San-Francisco!!!
Also could you help me out in getting into contact with Alumni of Hult..

Thnx

Hi,
The MFN isn't even offered in San Francisco... Did you mean the MIB ?

I received offer for the MFN in London. I don't know what to do with it, though.. Starting to doubt.

As someone who studied with HULT I feel I should let people know that it’s true that this school is a scam. I know someone who worked at HULT who explained that sales-people/recruiters are under a lot of pressure to recruit, otherwise they are fired – the result is that they recruit anyone and the appalling, hire and fire, corporate culture with no morals is ultimately why the school fails.

It sickens me that HULT paint themselves as philanthropists when the cash they donate for ‘the HULT prize’ is blatently used for marketing. HULT is like it’s parent company – EF (Education First), they have an immoral way of operating, trying to squeeze their customers as well as their staff for everything they’ve got, claiming charitable status and generally behaving in a dishonerable manner.

I sincerely regret attending HULT and this has been compounded by seeing how this morally corrupt organisation conducts itself.

On a positive note – I suppose they could improve but it would have to start with changing the ethos from making as much money as possible without considering quality, morals and how they treat both staff and students.

An MBA should be about learning about how to grow employees and creating sustainable, ethical organisations etc. It’s hard to hear this at the same time as studying at a morally bankrupt organisation.

Hi,
I was just accepted by Hult as well with a scholarship. But after seeing overwhelming amount of negative reviews about this school and some suspicious posters trying to defend the school, I am having serious doubt about going forward with this.
I honestly rather go to a school that's not very well known than go to a school has such negative imagine.
Can anyone who knows this school well advise please?
I am looking into other schools now. Can anyone advise on some mid ranking schools with lower tuition fees that offer one year MBA?
It's May now. If I want to start in September, I will have to act quick!
Thank you in advance!

I hate to break it to you but this is basically true for 99% of the programs out there. At the end of the day, these schools are just businesses and they ultimately want your money. I know that my undergraduate program, a somewhat respected school on the east coast, told me that they would accept me into their MBA program with a 520 gmat and no work experience. Their website claims that the average work experience is 5 years and that their average GMAT score is 640. I know someone who's attending their program right now that got a 540 on his GMAT.

So, like I said, this whole thing is really just hype--though I don't know how true this is at the 'elite' level. I would assume that top programs like Booth, Sloan, HBS, etc., are different. This probably explains why placement outside of the top 25 is so crappy.

Hey I'm in the same position! They called me to advise that i've been accepted and then requested a non-refundable deposit of $3.5K to"secure my spot". I only have two weeks to accept the offer. Can anyone advise if that school is legit? Possibly someone who went there? Your feedback would be much appreciated!

It makes sense in a way since HULT has not been around for that long.. The heavy marketing and advertising may be done to gain exposure and bump the school up in the rankings

Hi there, I am planning to apply for Master of finance in Hult. My GMAT score is 700, AWA 6/6, but IR is 3. Do you think the score is good enough to get in? or do I need to retake GMAT ? Thanks so much!


I don't know if this is a serious questions. If you read the postings above, you would know people with GMAT way below that had got in, some in low 500, I suspect even lower ones got in. With GMAT 700, I will suggest you look for a better school my friend.
