Good Value MBA Program's


talal007

Hi All,
I've done some research in the past couple of days and have short listed some well reputed universities with reasonable costs for an MBA program. These include:

1) Ryerson University
3) Victoria University
4) Birmingham University
5) Glasgow Univesrity
6) University of Ottawa (Telfer)
7) Newcastle University
8) Simon frasher University
9) HHL Germany (Considering fee for Early bird applicant)
10) Frankfurt School of finance & Management (Considering fee for Early bird applicant)

Given my financial constraints, these are the only universities I am limited to. Now I've done a detailed research on this. I was able to spot a couple of other reputed universities also but they were somewhat a bit on the high side of cost's for me. However, I am scheduled to give GMAT in March coming year. (I hope I score well since I have an engineering background).

Would appreciate Duncan's & Raplh's opinion on this also.

Duncan, My bad I wasn't clear with my question. What I wanted to ask was how good are these institutes in terms of job placement especially if you are an International student. I've searched the Alumini's through linkedin for each of the aforementioned institutes, and the placement's in general is quite well but I am not sure if it'd be the same for an International student.

I think the German schools will be best, assuming you speak German at a professional level before you arrive.
Then the Canadian schools.
Then the British schools.

Hi talal

I would also tell you the same. German schools can be very for you. Most German B schools also provide German language courses, if you have some language skills , further to that you can also take up higher level of language course and get a certificate. If you are looking for fast track International business consulting - MBA program MBA program in Offenburg is a good course and gives you fair exposure to Mangement education.

Hi Ashok,

All in all, I too believe that the German institutes have a slight edge especially in the European market, but I am still not sure about the mobility these universities (One's I have mentioned) would offer, though their the alumni network is reasonably well spread, especially considering the Middle Eastern or Asian market for example; where the name of Institute matters more than the course content.

In terms of European schools, I would think that something like Insead would have a much stronger alumni network in these regions.

If you focus is on the Middle East and Asia then consider the second-tier UK schools that teach there: Bradford, Nottingham and most importantly Strathclyde.

What about good value MBA programs in the US? Can anybody suggest some? Are budget programs like the ones at Urbana-Champaign and Missouri-Columbia good investments?

Urbana-Champaign is not a budget program. Unless you are an Illinois resident, It is $66,000.

Generally, prices are very reliable indicators of price. More expensive programmes are a much higher value -- much greater than the difference in fees. http://www.mba.illinois.edu/admissions/tuition.aspx

Sorry, I meant to mention that I'm looking for something with a stature in the rankings, preferably in the Financial Times, and also that my budget is $75,000 for tuition/books/etc. Trulaske, of course, is only ranked in Businessweek, but I would be eligible for resident tuition fees. In these terms, how do these schools stack up. I'm also open to other options.

I don't think you'll get better value than Trulaske's in-state fees. If you are a really stellar candidate, then BYU or Texas A&M are possible. The Iowa Tippie MBA is half-price on the CIMBA campus in Italy. I think those are the only bargains.

I think there are some great books on MBAs. Think about where in the world you would like to be. Do well in the GMAT and get into a good school with international accrediation.

I'm interested in hearing if you decided on one of these schools. I'm interested in the ones in Canada but I don't know which one I should attend.

My main goal is to move to Canada permanently. I work in IT now but I would be open to new industries.

I have heard that Toronto has a lot of jobs and is very diverse, but I am unsure about Ryerson. Telfer is an option but I do not know much about Ottawa and what kind of jobs are on offer. I have almost completely decided against Beedie because of the cost of living in Vancouver.
