most international and flexible


ilker72

I have studied in UBI's MBA program and graduated in 2004. I should say that it was a very valuable learning experience for me about the international business management with a truly international student body from not only all over Europe but also from USA, Japan, China, India and other regions in the world (including Middle East and Africa). I've enjoyed my everyday, as well as a thorough learning the insight of international business pillars. Other point I have enjoyed was about the management and the administrative efficiency and the flexibility: including payment terms, taking GMAT and TOEFL/TOEIC during the studies as well.

Guys,
It is truly my own experience...During my studies, the student body was coming from more than 30 countries approximately! I think due to the fact that Brussels is the capital of European Union, many professionals from EU Commission and related institutions, international representations of most of the countries in the world (both public, NGO or commercial organisations) are just 10-15 min away from the school building. And Johnny, this is a business school specialized only on Business Administration with a limited seats (approx.

It does not really matter if the school is never heard before. What matter is that ikker had great experience while studying there. As far as I know, UBI is located in Brussels. A Belgian Business School. UBI stands for United Business institute. This school is not top ranked, but school claims a top class business education.

I have to choose between the UBI MBA program and the MSL (Master of science in leadership) program at the Boston University in Brussels. I don't know how known is the MSL degree but at Boston Unisersity they said it is the new generation of the MBA. I am a PhD and I am looking for an experience in managment so what matters for me is which degree/school will sell me faster for my future employer. Any comments? or suggestions about the best choise between the 2 schools?
Thanks

MSL from BU will sell you faster. Even though MBA is more well recognized than leadership degree, the name Boston University will sell you faster. I have Bachelors of Science in Leadership from Northeastern University, Boston. It is a very good program, lots of case studies and presentations as well as 360 feedbacks being performed in the class room. However, nothing beats an MBA. I would recommend you to Get an MBA from Boston University rather than a leadership degree. I don't think BU offers MBA in Brussels. If you have to choose between UBI MBA and MSL from BU, I would recommend BU.

I was one of the first MBA students at UBI early 90's. Since my graduation, I've worked with a leading strategy consulting firm and within strategy roles at a couple of major hi-tech corporations worldwide. Purpose of my statement is not to make it sound like an ad, but the experience (and the degree) really helped me to realize all my career aspirations. Can warmly recommend.

Hi Folks,
I have read the whole discussion. But I am still not clear whether I should opt for UBI or not?
Can you please let me know, what are the better options than this institute.

Hi, the dean of UBI is Mr. François d'Anethan, what are his referrences? Well, he had teaching experience at "European University" (careful, don't get fooled by the name, it had no accreditation whatsoever from an Eiuiropean institution), based in Brussels in the early 90s, under the tenure of "Dr." Xavier Nieberling. This one had to close his school, because he was never able to proove the origin of his doctoral title. UBI (united business institutes, with who are they united???) started in the early 90s, strangely a bit after the fall of the "European University", having accreditation by Mercer University, then by Clark University, bith lowly ranked in the States, and both now completely refusing having anything to do with UBI. Now University of Wales accreditates UBI, but so does it with a huge variety of different program. Also UBI claims to be the "number one business school in Brussels" and bases this claim on the "Business Education Commission", whith a unknown author, but whose prose ressembles strangely to that of the dean of UBI... At one time, UBI had a mutual accreditation with "Thierry school of Leadership", hahaha, if you want to have a laugh, go to their website and read the text of it, it's hilarious! Don't go to UBI, go to a honest school! In Brussels, we have Solvay, or in Leuven (20 miles away) we have Vlerick, one of the top business school in Europe, please check Financial Times!!!! Check the true references!!!
