An MBA program is designed for both students who are longing to start the business career and the already established individuals. MBA program helps one to dive into the current business world. However, choosing the best program is a very crucial decision. A degree at a leading business school is incredibly valuable and pays for itself in four years. Forbes has a number of top MBA schools that hold their positions, and they are Stanford’s Graduate school of business, University of Chicago Booth School of Business, Harvard Business School, Wharton, Northwestern Kellogg, MIT Sloan, and Columbia Business School.
Deciding to study an MBA degree is a very significant step. There are a lot of benefits an MBA program can give you, and they are:
- Strategic thinking
- Better communication
- Better time-management
- More job opportunities
MBA programs choose students with high academic performance. However, it is not the only factor. Business Schools are looking for students with the leadership skills required to succeed in business. Interpersonal skills and intellectual aptitude are also at the bottom of the list.
We’re really looking for focus, for people who really do have a sense of where they’re headed. That’s very, very important! People who cannot fully define their short- and long-term goals (although they may not know the specific job) are probably not ready to apply to a business program. We need to know those goals to determine whether the applicants are realistic and whether Columbia is going to be able to help them reach those goals.” — Columbia Business School
