European Business Schools Off the Beaten Path

While thinking of Europe might conjure images of Paris’ Eiffel Tower or Rome’s Coliseum, the continent has much more to offer than just its capital cities. Indeed, there are a number of accredited business schools offering full-time MBA programs in all corners of Europe, and many in places that you wouldn’t expect. Here’s a quick list.

Top 10 Business Schools in New York

The economy of the US’ third-largest state comprises more than just Wall Street: it’s also got thriving film, export, and agricultural industries.

Based on rankings and other metrics, here are a list of the top ten business schools in the Empire State.

Top 10 Accredited Business Schools in India

It used to be that Indian students who wanted MBAs had to go abroad — often to countries like the US and the UK — to find decent business education through accredited business schools.

Top Business Schools for a Career in Nonprofit Management

A growing number of business students are looking for more than just a big salary; instead they are looking to create change by working in nonprofits, non-governmental organizations, and social enterprises. An MBA can help students apply core business principles (like strategy, finance, and marketing) to these organizations, so they can effectively drive social impact. Students can also choose to pair their MBA with a Master of Public Administration (MPA) or a Master of Public Policy (MPP) through dual-degree offerings.

Top Business Schools for a Career in Operations Management

As the world globalizes, the operations functions in many industries, like manufacturing and shipping, are becoming more important. An operations manager is charged with overseeing a business' operations by ensuring they're efficient and effective. Many job opportunities in this sector exist for MBAs interested in operations, including positions like systems analyst, logistics manager, and operations analyst.

Top Business Schools for a Career in Public Sector Management / Government

Governments and other public sector organizations function differently from commercial businesses, and as such, managers can require a more specialized understanding when running them. Students that are interested in government or public sector work can look into programs that offer specialized curriculum or internships in public agencies. For a more nuanced understanding of how these organizations work, students can pair their MBA with a Master of Public Administration or a Master of Public Policy, in a dual-degree program.

Top Business Schools for a Career in Private Equity

Private equity is a subset of finance and usually refers to private investors who invest into private companies. Closely related to private equity are venture capital and leveraged buyouts (LBOs), where investors fund new businesses or acquire stakes in existing companies, respectively. Not many schools offer concentrations in private equity, but usually, a school that's strong in finance will generally be strong in private equity.

Top 10 MBA Programs in England for £25,000 or Less

Fortunately, there are a number of world-class business schools in the the country that offer internationally-accredited MBA programs for students on a budget. Here’s a quick list.

Top Business Schools for a Career in Retail and Consumer Goods

In 2013, retail sales in the US topped $4.53 trillion, driven by behemoths like Walmart, Home Depot, and Costco, as well as by e-commerce retailers such as Amazon. Unlike for other industry areas, MBA programs don't often offer specialized curriculum in these industries; instead, students can opt for relevant functional concentrations like operations management or marketing, and find networking opportunities through research centers and student clubs.

Top Business Schools for a Career in Finance or Financial Services

Strictly in terms of salaries, there are very few job paths that are more lucrative than a career in financial services. Jobs can be found in the financial services firms (such as J.P Morgan), as well as in credit unions and banks.

For a more analytic understanding of finance, some business schools also offer one- or two-year Master of Finance programs.

Top Business Schools for a Career in Accounting or Taxation

Analyzing financial information is key to any successful organization; that’s why accounting is a required core course on nearly every MBA program. An MBA is also valuable for experienced accountants or tax professionals pursuing broader or executive roles in areas like asset management, corporate finance, private equity, and mergers and acquisitions. Because of the analytical focus, a school that's strong in finance is generally also strong in accounting and taxation.

US MBA Programs with the Highest Average GMAT Scores

Scoring high on the GMAT is not easy — according to GMAC, only about ten percent of all test-takers score above 700. However, a high score signals to business schools that a candidate is well-rounded, and can solve complex problems under pressure.

Of course, the GMAT score is not the only factor by which business schools judge applications; work experience is also important, as is undergraduate performance and extra-curricular activities.

Here’s a list of the US-based MBA programs which report the highest average GMAT scores for their cohorts.

Top Business Schools for a Career in Business Analytics and Big Data

With the rise of big data, businesses increasingly need managers who can quickly analyze and understand the implications of huge amounts of information.

While careers in business analytics can range from analyst-level positions to business intelligence managers, the concepts can be applied broadly, especially in marketing and operations functions.

Top Business Schools for a Career in Sustainability / CSR / Social Entrepreneurship

An MBA can boost careers for managers working in sustainability roles, such as strategic functions and corporate social responsibility (CSR) departments of companies committed to improving their social/environmental footprint or stakeholder engagement. Specialized MBA curriculum in sustainability explores business ideas through different lenses: the “triple bottom line,” for example, gauges success based on not only a business' profit, but also how it effects the planet and humanity. MBA programs in social entrepreneurship help students create and manage businesses to create social change. Non-profits and social enterprises are often linked to sustainability objectives.

Top Business Schools for a Career in Consulting

A job in management consulting is one of the most popular – if not the most popular – career step for recent MBA grads. Sometimes people already working in consulting get an MBA as a way to advance their careers in that industry; others use the MBA as a gateway into the sector.

Top 10 Business Schools in the Four Asian Tigers

In the 1990s, the Four Asian Tigers (Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea, and Taiwan,) came to international attention through the exponential growth of their economies. The growth led to the development of a handful of world-class business schools in the region; today, the best ones have received international recognition through accreditation and rankings.

Top 10 MBA Programs in the US for under $70,000

For many international applicants who want to do an MBA in the US, budget is one of the primary considerations.

Post-MBA jobs in the sector can range from a corporate real estate broker to a property investment executive.

Top 10 MBA Programs in Canada

Many international students find that Canada — with its strong and varied industries and reasonable post-education visa policies — is a great place to do their MBA, and some even work for a few years in the country after graduating. Among the several dozen or so business schools in the country, fewer than 30 are accredited by AACSB, AMBA, or EQUIS; the following is a list of the best ones.

Accredited MBA Programs in the Middle East

In terms of international accreditation, business schools in the Middle East have traditionally been underrepresented.

Although there are a few international business schools, such as Cass, INSEAD, and Bradford — all of which offer MBA programs in the region — this is a list of accredited business schools whose main campuses are officially based in the Middle East.

Top Business Schools for Entrepreneurs

For future entrepreneurs or those who want to push new products or initiatives inside of companies, an MBA program can provide the basic fundamentals on how to do it.
