Where are you planning to apply? :-) Still not decided?


I haven't decided yet, yeah. I've been asked this quite commonly of late so I'm thinking if it's time. Any tips/ suggestion or starting point on how to shortlist schools?

Oh Sure. Our MBA guide has very detailed articles on how to research and shortlist business schools. I would recommend reading the following three articles at least - #8 How to Start Researching Business Schools, #9 Get to Know Your Schools, and #10 Which Schools to Apply to? ..https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-club-mb ... 66258.html

You may also want to watch our recent videos on Best business schools for Finance, Marketing, Consulting, and Entrepreneurship. These videos are part of the MBA video series and can be found here.. https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-club-mb ... 87707.html
