The Indian MBA Institutes have come a long way from the late 1990s till the early 2000s. The attractive Master's degree suddenly became a rage leading to mushrooming MBA Colleges all over the place.
But how do they compare to the leading MBA Institutes like IIMs, NMIMS, FMS, etc?
The answer is that they don't. Most institutes in India just focus on selling the fancy degree to the students who are unable to crack the leading institutes, ignoring the standards that need to be maintained being an MBA Institute.
The next question that might come to your mind is if a leading MBA Institute from India is not feasible for every Indian student, an MBA from the UK is.
The answer is YES. It is comparatively easier to get into an MBA Institute from the UK. Though expensive, it is better than wasting your money over an average Institute from India that will not open your doors to even a decent looking job. Recruiters these days look for candidates with a degree from a good institute.
Having said that, you may get a placement in the UK after your studies, but in India, you surely will! You can apply to the companies of your choice and you will be entertained well, having that master's degree from the UK.
The next question striking your mind can be is how will a UK MBA Program score over their Indian counterparts.
The Libraries in the UK have thousands of books available for their students and staff to refer, read, consult and research further. On top of that, they give you subscriptions for their databases pertaining to the best research journals and papers. This gives access to students to support their assignments with the best data possible.
The students who love research will find UK Universities the best in that regard!
The MNCs based in India hire an MBA from UK Universities also because of the multinational faculty exposure given to the student.
Another factor that might win you a great job is worldwide recognition. A UK MBA sounds better than an Indian MBA and this reflects well on your resume. An international degree definitely gives you the weightage over an MBA from an average institute from India.
You will benefit from the international exposure that you receive while you are studying an MBA in the UK. None of the MBA institutes in India offer such exposure, let alone even the top colleges.
UK education should be preferred by those who are looking for a global stage for their future or young aspiring students who dream of living in the UK and are confident of drawing a six-figure salary in a few years' time.
