The 4 steps to deciding your prefect MBA
To achieve any objective you have in mind, it is necessary to have a prior preparation that allows you to manage your time and resources in the best way! Today we propose 4 excellent tips to decide your best option to do an MBA abroad!
- Do the math. Pick a couple of programs in different countries, and count what the cost of studying in that region and school is. Write down the total price of tuition, cost of living in the destination, financing options and how long you could stop receiving a fixed salary (one or two years). Based on these data, you can close the options of the destination and the institution, according to needs and possibilities. It also takes into account other factors, such as type of job and salary that you could expect after studying for the MBA.
- The United States or Europe? Both regions have remarkable options, although different in time. Most programs in the United States are for two years, while in Europe, most MBAs are reduced to one year.
- List your interests. The central axes of the MBA is that the person understands risks and learns to manage them. The financial is another core part, although one of the most important aspects are the “soft skills” in which the student is trained, for example, how to motivate the people who work for you.
- Ask everywhere. Attending fairs, asking for feedback on school blogs, contacting graduates and teachers, are aspects that help.
