The situation in Australia


vishalkg

Hello!

I have finished my Bachelors in Business Management and have applied for the MBA program at RMIT and Deakin University. The course starts off in Feb'10.

I guess you must have heard about the whole racism scene happenin in Australia. I would like to know how serious this whole issue is there. Is it a wise option to take up this course with safety in mind. I am very apprehensive about going to Aus due to this matter.

Awaiting a reply!

Regards
Vishal

I assume you're referring to the attack in Melbourne a few months ago? I find that most disturbing, especially when seen in conjunction with the circumstances illuminated in Harvard and Cambridge due to a recent high-profile arrest.

Seems like educational institutions are becoming less and less havens for diversity. In my sadly narrow mind, I see this all through the lens of the global economic crisis - it seems like people are more willing to lash out violently against "the other" if they're not doing so well financially. Who knows if that's true or not.

So as to your question about Australia - who knows?

Newsweek's said that the recession is over so, you know, things might get better, I guess. Do you know anybody living there now you could speak with?

I wouldn't say Australia is a dangerous place for a foreigner - these kind of things are happening all around the globe, especially in times of economic crisis. i think you shouldn't let this kind of thing disturb you - it always seems worse on T.V then it really is!
of course, one should also take care of himself, and see that he doesn't get into dangerous situations(i wouldn't start arguing with a drunk person, even if he is offending me, for example). but as i said, i think most Australians where also shocked by this, and don't agree in any way with such things.

As for the quality of schools in Australia - well, that's already another subject......

hi Sahib,

but according to GMAA (Graduate Management of Association Australia) Deakin Business School has very good reputation, they have five star rating, equals with the MBS and Macquarie GSM.

So are you saying that this rating is not true..?

Please advice

hi benaiah

thnx for the xmas surprise, i had no clue whats gmaa,
they hav rated griffith also as 5 star,and likes of qut ,curtin n monash as 4 star..lol...

i think you must hav found this gmaa page on deakin uni, as they may be marketing them selfes using this

anyway, if you followin gmaa star rating, than apply for monash,curtin, uts,qut, and other schools too

but for sure, you would find it hard to find deakin in any mba ranking globally or locally in australia

hi again sahib,

I hope the surprise is not much for the xmas.

Btw, I found the gmaa from the google, when try to search mba in australia.

Btw I'm still in process of choosing the right school. Deakin in still in my mind, cause they have very good program, such as business practicum and study tour, and more over they have the specialization that I looking for, the supply chain management.

Probably you could help me with more information about the best business school in Oz, that also provide the supply chain management specialization?

Please advice.

hi benaiah

honestly speaking

i dont again know about this (www.gooduniguide.com.au)

as an individual i rate school good, if it is triple accredated, or has atleast one of the accredation from ( AACSB,AMBA,EQUIS) these r top 3 MBA accredations of the world.

i also look at how old/prestigious the university is, and how old is the business school and how old is there mba program.

further for ranking i follow, economist ranking or financial times ranking, as i feel these two rankings are quiet authentic

this is my prespective of looking at the school

hope this helps

We read a lot about situations in Australia and moreoever, except AGSM and MBS most Australian B schools are behind most of UK B schools as per any rankings, FT, Forbes or EIU.
I wonder what is it that makes Asian students flock to Australia. I admit a huge number go to UK as well but am trying to understand if I'm to select between a good university in UK (likes of Aston, Strathclyde, Durham etc) against Macquaire, ANU or Queensland B schools what should be positives for Australia.
Your opinions are eagerly awaited...I'm pretty confused with my MBA destination. US is beyond my budget and the 2 years tenure is also a bit problematic. Can you please help?

hiee dulsban...as per my research the situation is not that hard as shown in media. many people choose aus for studies keeping in mind abt the job prospects,pr etc..coming on uk as there are lot of students every year go to uk for there further studies bcoz in uk mba is done in 1 year but the problem is that uk is same like mumbai wherein job is very difficult to find.and if u want to go to uk for mba just select the best uni.
