I am damn confused about which country and college should i choose , India, somewhere in Asia, Europe or US ( Even thinking about New Zealand , Australia ). My basic concern is finances . I come from humble background and whether shelling out 50–60 lakhs is worth it . I need advice on that. Idea is to get and mba, get placed and settle in that country preferably

Below is my basic profile.


N.I.T. Nagpur ( Civil Engg 2011 batch : CPI 7.23 )

Science + Math’s Stream

GMAT (include Q/V breakdown and percentiles):

Total : 680

Q 50 V 31

Professional Experience

No. of years of experience: 05 years ( Role Planning Manager )

Why do you want to do an MBA/Master’s? What are your short term career goals (immediately after graduating)?

I do believe that I am not getting the desired exposure. Hence doing MBA/ Masters would give me outlook towards life with what I am looking for.
I have keep interest in again learning business concepts.
I want to join great firms and do exciting job
I am good at analysing stuff. Hence Short term goal is to try new stuff, analyse and finally get into the career which excites me the most.
I do feel that Career in Consulting, Analytics & Operations are best suited to me.
I have keep interest in finding solutions to different problems and would like to continue with that.
I never liked core marketing, finance. However, the basic idea is necessary I guess so as to get an overall picture of business.
Along with all of above, I aspire for a work life balance

If finances are your biggest concern, I would just look at the cheapest program you can get into regardless or location. I will however, recommend you look into Brigham Young University's Marriott School of Management. It is a private school ranked in the top 30s in the US and cost is about 10k per semester, which is only about 20k per year (USD). The school is located in Provo where cost of living is ridiculously cheap (250-400 USD per month for an apartment with roommates) and employment rate from the school is 98% by graduation with top F500 companies. There are lots of indian students that come to BYU for this exact reason.

Abroad MBA would definitely give a boost to your career
But a good college in India would also make a difference.
MBA abroad calls for lot of investment.

No doubt studying MBA in abroad will enhance your skills and you will have vast career Opportunities after completing MBA, however it also depends on the country you choose, i feel Europe and London are better options to study MBA.
