MIB vs MBA


sarveshdxb
Hi
I recently came across Masters in International Business a one year program offered by Hult. What are the career opportunites of doing MIB as it also requires big investment like MBA. Also how popular is the course in the current situation? I like to seek help on this whether an MBA would be best or MIB is ok to move on. I will be graduation by May 2013, but i have 7+years experience already after my diploma in the hospitality field. I would like to switch career. I m looking to apply for sep 2013 intake. What would you suggest? How is the ROI for MIB? Which colleges/ uni are best for such course.

The MIB is a pre-experience masters (which Hult, I think, generally uses for people who can't make it into the MBA). An MBA will have better outcomes, especially if you can find one with AACSB or EQUIS accreditaion.

Thanks for your reply Mr.Duncan

I want to know whether the MIB will b useful if i cant get into an MBA as i have work experience of 9yrs and gona graduate by 2013. Also i know that MBA is higher cadre and experienced people study so the prospects are more. But for my case will MIB provide an opportunity for career change. What are the schools that are good in MIB? MIB also costs about 75% of course fee of an MBA.I am waiting for your suggestions. By the way what is AACSB or Equis accreditation.

I don't think that the Hult MIB will be the best option for you. Here's a list of the best masters degrees for people without post-degree work experience:
http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-management-2012 These rankings will also show you the average salaries, and that is a good indication of prospects.

If you click on 'Show all available fields' you can add a column to see the tuition fees. There are many better schools than Hult which are much cheaper.

The best schools are accredited by either AACSB or EQUIS: Hult has neither. Read http://www.find-mba.com/accreditations There is also a third organisation (AMBA, the Association of MBAs) which mainly accredits MBAs degrees. However AACSB and EQUIS accredit *entire schools*, not just individual programmes, so they look at all the facilities and resources, so they are more comprehensive.

Most of these schools need a good score in the GMAT test. You might find that a small amount of study to improve your English will produce a big improvement in your GMAT score result.

Why the MBA always have a preference than other courses like you suggested here also MBA not MIB?

Generally an MBA is worth more than other masters degrees because at accredited schools MBA students have substantial work experience, and are more valuable employees.

Hi Duncan in earlier post you mentioned Hult has neither, but the school is often in top 100. So what is the credibility of studying there?

Well, it is a new school and so it is not one with a reputation to compete with the traditional university-based business schools. It does seem that they have flexible admissions criteria. If you cannot get into a better school, then perhaps it is a wise choice.

Thanks for your reply sir. Is there any difference between doing MIB in grenoble graduate school of business at france campus and singapore MDIS campus.

You should ask the universities directly about placement information. There are only a few Singaporean universities, so it's not so hard. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_universities_and_colleges_in_Singapore

Take a look at
http://mim.nus.edu/

http://www.sutd.edu.sg/mit_sutd_masters.aspx
http://www.nbs.ntu.edu.sg/Graduate/MSc_Financial_Engineering/Pages/MSc_Financial_Engineering.aspx

Of course there is a big difference between GGSB in Grenoble and in Singapore. GGSB is the oldest and most respects business school in that region of France. It has a strong careers team in France and a lot of alumni in France. It also attracts high quality students there because it's one of the top 6 or 7 schools in a huge country. None of those things is true of the GGSB franchise holder in Singapore.

Hi everyone,

I am 28 years old Indian. Working in Dubai in a reputed bank for the past 6 years. I have done my B.Tech in Electronics & Engg from India.

I am interested in doing EMBA in Finance & Banking or International Business.

1. I am planning of migrating to Australia after doing MBA when opportunity arrives.
2. I am looking for a average tuition fees university. Maximum can be 80000 Dirhams.
3. I would like to do from a Foreign university . Not an Indian university.

I did a bit of research and have now come to a conclusion of UNIVERSITY OF WOLLONGWONG. This university will give me option to complete the last two subjects of my course in Australian campus. That would help me to find a job in Australia.
UOWD offers two courses that will suit my requirements.
1. master in applied finance and banking
2. masters in international business.

My questions are :
1. Is it worth doing MBA from UOWD?
2. Will an Australian univeristy degree will help me in finding a job easily in Australia?

Now, I am confused. Please somone could help me by giving their expert advice whether it is safe to do MBA in University of Wollongwong??

thanks in advance.

I am also confused. Do you want to do an MBA or the master in applied finance and banking or masters in international business? These two are not MBA or EMBA degrees. They are degrees aimed at students without work experience.

1. Is it worth doing MBA from UOWD?
2. Will an Australian univeristy degree will help me in finding a job easily in Australia?

1. Probably not
2. No.

If you want to work in Australia, you should probably do a full-time MBA at an accredited Australian business school: Melbourne, AGSM, etc.

If you can't do that then the SP Jain Global MBA is probably your best bet, since it has a Sydney residency and you'd be able to use that time to network and build business connections.

Hi Mr Duncan,

Many thanks for the reply.
I now understood. I want to do Masters in some specialization which can help me to grow in my field of work.

Hi Mr Hipster,

Many thanks for the reply. I will check out the SP Jain college as advised by you.

I cant do a full time Masters since I am working. Can't leave the job since I have liabilities.

Please advice why UOWD is not a good college? It has been in Dubai for a very long time.

Thanks in advance.

Mainly, the business school doesn't hold international accreditation. By that I mean AACSB, AMBA, or EQUIS.) Without this, you take a huge risk when it comes to learning experience, cohort quality, and international reputation.

In some places, this isn't necessarily a problem, but the fact is Dubai is a place where there are a good number of solid, internationally-accredited MBA programs that you can choose from, so it just doesn't make sense to do one that's not.

Also, just by doing a degree at an Australian university isn't a good way to network in the country, if that's where you want to end up. Perhaps a more effective strategy than doing this degree would be to spend the money on business trips to Melbourne or wherever and just spend your time networking.
I cant do a full time Masters since I am working.

Then look at any of the reputable EMBA programs there - LBS, Cass, Bradford, Hult, etc.
