Why an MBA Abroad?

Some of the main reasons why people decide to do an MBA abroad are:
  • They want to work in a particular country -- employers are keener on MBA graduates who have studied in the country where they operate.
  • They want a brand name that is recognised globally on their CV.
  • International MBA classes tend to have a more diverse population in terms of nationalities, backgrounds (educational and professional), genders, etc, which enhances the quality of the environment and the learning.
  • International B-schools tend to have a more global coverage of topics in their syllabi.
  • International B-schools are more likely to have access to a wider base of resources such as alumni network, faculty, guest speakers, libraries, employers, etc.
  • Some schools offer shorter duration formats such as a 10-month / 16-month MBA courses, allowing candidates to return to work quicker
Almost all the reasons applied in my case. To future MBAs , I recommend that you come up with reasons that resonate most with your aspirations and the kind of experience you are looking for. If this will be your second MBA, then it will be imperative to articulate the thinking since you will most likely be asked this question in your interview.

It is all right to continue to fine-tune this reasoning during the process of MBA prep, but ensure that there is a consistent thread in your story. I cannot emphasise enough how critical your belief in this story will be and how many times this belief will be questioned during and after the process.
