Without doubt, the MBA is the most internationally recognised degree in existence, and arguably with new delivery methods and distance learning opportunities. It opens your mind and enhances your capabilities while developing the flair necessary for managing and motivating the people. MBA develops a person professionally revitalised, focused and global leaders with an intensive understanding of business. The world is now your oyster when considering where and how to study MBA.

There are some universities with low tuition fee as well (£10,000 or INR 10, 00000) offering high quality education.
