GMAT maths is not real math is it numeracy instead.
But why need to do real maths anyways?

I like people with conviction for themselves. The world we are living today was built by men of dedication, of daring and also of a sense of humanity.

To go after a brand or even hide after it proves your inner inferiority and slavery.

True education would teach people to dare and to act to your darest. Failed education churns out another factory-manufactured product sometimes under the name havard or yale.

There are many excellent programs that prepare individuals for careers in international business.

A piece of advice for all interested in international business: an employer will ask "what can you do for me?" If the answer is simply, "I have a degree in international business" the employer will ask again, "Yes, I understand that. But what can you do for me?"

No matter the school you choose to earn your MBA in international business or your Global MBA, be certain to also gain a functional expertise in addition to the broad understanding of international business. IE 5 advanced courses in international finance or 5 advanced courses in international marketing (functional expertise in finance or marketing: using global case studies to gain the expertise).

Also be certain, especially if you are doing a career focus change, that the school has a significant internship program where you can gain international business work experience first-hand. Ask about the school's internship program. Ask what students have done in their internships; be certain it is not simply an "administrative" internship where you do minor assignments etc. Too often the perception of the word "internship" is taken at the undergrad level meaning yes, you can work here as an intern but we will have you doing assistant type work.

Check to see a) if the school has a bonafide internship that is a required part of the curriculum; b) how long the internship must be- 3 months full-time means time to do signficant work; 1 month is too short to really add value; c) how many credits does the internship count for in the curriculum -- if it is not for credit, there may be no guarantee that you will be doing work in the company that adds significant value to the company -- ie a major project in finance or marketing that you are responsible for in addition to other tasks and shadowing VPs etc.; d) what assistance is provided in getting you the internship; e) is it required that the internship be outside your home country (which makes it truly global for you).

In addition to the full-time internship where you gain global work experience, does the program require a Global Travel Seminar where you study a region, its culture and business policies and economy and then go to that country and visit companies? Many schools offer these and they are excellent. Also ask, in the Global Travel Seminar, do I just go and visit a company and listen to a presentation about the company, or are there live case studies at the companies where myself and fellow MBAs or Global MBAs are required to present solutions to the case study to the company's executives?

One should also ask the accreditation of the business school. AACSB is the standard for excellence. You can google AACSB and then look at the list of accredited schools by geographical location alphabetically.

When you see rankings, ask what goes in to the rankings. Go beyond the rankings and make sure the program will give you what you need for your career path.

Ask, who will be my faculty/teacher in the core MBA classes I must take? The Stats course and the Marketing course and the Operations course...........will I have a TA or will I have a tenure-track faculty member? Even if you have a fellowship/scholarship from the school and have a free-ride (hard to come by!), you are still making an investment of time. At the graduate level, you want faculty - be they tenure track or adjuncts hired because they work in the field and have the current expertise in the field.

These are suggestions and things to consider.

There are many excellent programs!

This was the comments by my university classmates worked at this school last year. I do not intent to give false statement or hurt the school. So, I delete this post.

I will study MBA in 2011. Nowadays, I ask my friends's opionions, so, I get information on this school. Sorry troubling you.

Pardon me?

These are absolutely false statements about Suffolk University.

You do Hult International Business School, current students, future students of either Hult or Suffolk, an absolute disservice by publishing negative comments about another school - especially comments that are blatently false. Please see accurate information below about the Suffolk MBA and graduate programs; and the University in general.

1. Suffolk University is not a for-profit school.

2. Suffolk University does not recruit every applicant.

3. It is true that some students at Suffolk may have taken the GMAT twice. Most take it once. Extremely few would have taken it multiple times. Suffolk considers it a benefit to applicants who may have "test anxiety" or individuals for whom English is a second language, to be able to take the GMAT a second time.

4. Suffolk's admission process is need-blind. You do not have to have money to apply or be accepted to the University.

5. Scholarships are in the form of "Graduate Fellowships". All admitted students are automatically considered for a graduate fellowship. Criteria for the awards are GMATscore and cumulative GPA.
There are 2 kinds of fellowship awards: full-tuition and half-tuition. The amounts are not negotiable.
Suffolk indicates a preferred deadline for fellowship/scholarship consideration. It is to the benefit of applicants to apply by that date. If they apply later, there may or may not be monies left available.
Suffolk also provides a suggested deadline for a student to accept the award and commit to coming to Suffolk. We do allow more time if the student asks. However, consider that if someone decides not to accept the award, that money may then be available to an individual who applies a bit late - when the monies available for that semester may have been depleted. In no instance is a fellowship or scholarship amount raised because someone waits to accept it. Applying later may mean there is no money left. Accepting your scholarship later will not raise the amount.

I have to believe that the Hult administration would not endorse you representing the school by giving false and negative information out about another school - especially on a public site, on a discussion board named "Hult International Business School."

I believe readers benefit from these discussion boards by seeing information that helps them make decisions about which program fits their needs, suggestions for taking the GMAT, etc. Please read my previous posts.

Again, publishing false or negative statements about another university helps no one. There are many fine MBA Programs in the Boston area and in the states. Some are in the "rankings"; some are not. Individuals deserve honest information to base their decisions on. Your statements are harmful in so many ways, to so many individuals, to Hult and to Suffolk.

I?m a current MBA student in Hult(Boston Campus), I come from Shanghai, CHINA.

Firstly, to Mr Hallberg(Dean, MBA Programs of Suffolk University)
1: Sorry but I have to say this is a discussion board named "Hult International Business School." Maybe it?s not very suitable for you to post promotional advertisement for Suffolk MBA, if you wanna more people to know about your school, you can open a new discussion board named ?Suffolk MBA? or you can join other discussions such as ?MBA in Boston?.
2: There is no evidence to judge the guy ?highered? is related to Hult, so if he post some misleading information to ?Suffolk University?, you should talk directly with this guy instead of guessing whether he represents Hult. It's unfair.


Secondly, to people who are interested in pursue MBA in Boston, I should say as Mr Hallberg mentioned, other than Harvard/MIT, there are also many other good MBA programs in Boston.

Personally, I think some of the good choices are Boston College/Boston University/Babson College/Northeastern University/Hult International Business School/Suffolk University/Bentley College, just to name a few.

Furthmore, you can?t just simply say which one is good or bad, you should choose a MBA program fit you most. For example, if you are really interested in Entrepreneurship, I suggest you to consider Babson; If you are interested in a school with the best undergraduate program/best reputation in Finance industry, I suggest you to consider Boston College. If you are interested in Accounting, I suggest you to consider Bentley/Suffolk. If you are interested in international business, I suggest you to consider Hult, which is a truly global school(1:Hult has five campuses in Boston/SanFrancisco/London/Dubai/Shanghai 2:Hult?s global rotation program allow you study in at most 3 campuses during your MBA 3:Hult?s truly international students body(Boston campus this year enroll 184 MBA students which come from 48 countries, London campus this year enroll 101 MBA students which come from 38 countries, etc I just give one example, 6 people in my team are coming from 6 countries!!!!). Also, if you are interested in consulting, Hult can also help you a lot not only because Hult come from Arthur D. Little, which is the world?s earliest and best management consulting firm but also Hult?s consulting club is really amazing, I?ll explain more details later.

As ?highered? mentioned the for-profit school, I?m definitely sure that neither Hult nor Suffolk is a for-profit school, for example, you can check whether Hult is for-profit or not from Massachusetts government website: http://www.charities.ago.state.ma.us/ You can never judge a school for-profit or not only by its tuition fee. Hult indeed charge premium price for its MBA program, however, all the surplus are spent on the program itself as required by law after its non-profit registration, Hult did spend huge money to improve facility or hire better professor in the last three years. Everyone in Hult family is really passionate to be one of the best B-school in the world, even Hult brand is relatively new compared to most of our competitors.
We know we are still far behind Insead, but we are striving to learn from and do hope oneday can surpass Insead!( why choose Insead as a benchmark: also a 1-year MBA/ truly globalization/ very good reputation in consulting industry). If Hult wanna be make money as a for-profit school, that will be very easy, just as the University of Phoneix did in the last ten years of providing online course, however, Hult never provide any kind of online program.

Hult's amazing improvement since 2007 are also recognized by the whole MBA community, that?s why Hult was ranked NO.27 worldwide in Economist?s newest Annual MBA ranking( http://www.economist.com/whichmba ), and ranked NO.94 worldwide in Financial Times?s newest Annual MBA ranking( http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/global-mba-rankings).

In fact, Hult is a school which care much about social responsibility. As you can see from http://www.hult.edu/news/Press/ClintonGlobalInitiative.html, Hult today announced together with Clinton Global Initiative (a charity foundation by former president Bill Clinton, more details http://www.clintonglobalinitiative.org/), that Hult will donate 1 Million US$ to the foundation.
Specifically, Hult and Clinton foundation will co-host Hult Annual Global Case Challenge in March 2011, which will take place simultaneously across all of the Hult?s five campuses in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai and Shanghai. More than 100 teams from business schools all over the world will compete to develop the most innovative solution to a real problem faced by a Clinton Global Initiative member in implementing their solution to a pressing global issue. The winning team will then see their solution being put into action with the support of the US$1 million prize provided by Hult. In recognition of this commitment, President Bill Clinton and Hult?s Chairman Bertil Hult will award the winning team their prize and encourage them to put their ideas into action with CGI and Hult?s help.
In fact, the First Hult Annual Global Case Challenge took place in March 2010, during which teams from top business schools all over the world including Harvard, INSEAD, Cambridge, Oxford, Columbia, MIT, Wharton, LBS and Carnegie Mellon compete to solve a problem faced by One Laptop Per Child(NGO). The inaugural winner was a team from Carnegie Mellon University.
You can check more details from the Global case challenge?s website www.hultglobalcasechallenge.com.

For the GMAT score issue, I?m sure neither Hult nor Suffolk?s students is around 400 level, I don?t details about Suffolk, but you can clearly check that average GMAT of Hult students enrolled last year is 610(http://www.economist.com/whichmba/2010/hult-international-business-school), the score of my peers(which just finished the first month of MBA) is even higher due to the school?s consistent improvement year by year. By the way, GMAT isn't a good way to judge a person's level especially for people choose 1-year program because they have more working experience(the average age for Hult MBA is 30 years).

Anyway, Dean Hallberg, if Suffolk's MBA are interested in participating in the Hult Global Case Challenge, just ask your students to register at www.hultglobalcasechallenge.com (more details will be released on this dedicated website later), or if Suffolk MBA also have a consulting club, they are definitely welcome to Hult anytime for communication&cooperation. They can contact HULT Consulting club by [email protected]

If anyone wanna to know about the background info of Hult MBA students, just take a look at http://www.linkedin.com/company/hult-international-business-school, over half of current students are on Linkedin. Tks

Thank you. My point exactly. As a student from Hult, you've provided excellent information here.

My point to "higher" was that he/she does a disservice to both Hult and Suffolk by providing false information. I said Hult would not be happy with having negative or false information about another school on their discussio board and, as a student of Hult, you clarified that. This was the only place I could answer Higher and correct the false statements for the readers of this discussion board.

I don't advertise on this board rather participate by providing thoughtfiul suggestions on GMAT, questions to think about etc. It is similar to when I participate on panels with other universities. But when I see false statements I must correct them, as I'm certain you would about Hult.

Many thanks for the invitations at the end of your post. I continue to believe those looking for an MBA in the Boston area have a large array of excellent choices.

Hmm, I read highered's post as referring to HULT, the pertinent school to this thread. Dean Hallberg, I wonder if the confusion is due to your posting about your school under the wrong thread? (I did find your comments insightful, btw.) I am excited to learn more about the levels of strategic thought at various Boston MBA programs (as well as the European ones we host here in London) by their participation in the GCC. Echoing Andy's sentiment, we cordially invite Suffolk to participate. This will be the largest, most important case competition the world has ever seen. Encourage your students to take this opportunity to make a real difference for an important charity.

HULT is indeed owned by EF, a for-profit education company (the largest in the world, in fact). This is one of the factors that most attracted me to HULT, as it gives us much more agility (and the staff much more accountability) than the public/private university system. This agility is reflected in the Economist's new rankings, which place us at 27th in the world.

I wonder if the readers of this list consider how badly one must actually screw up in order to get fired from your typical University.

As for highered's points, I am sorry his/her friend was unable to have a career at HULT, and I hope that person has found a better fit in the job market. Contrary to highered's projection, I would not expect to see anyone in the 400's at a HULT campus. We do have a few students in the 500's at the London campus, but most have very interesting backgrounds and have provided quite interesting cultural insight.

Yes, we do recruit aggressively--a fact that is rapidly increasing our student quality. My profile is detailed above, and I am amazed by the opportunities my decision to attend HULT is affording me.

I am not a cheerleader, and I would never intentionally steer a prospective student wrong. I invite interested parties to contact me directly for my balanced, candid opinions of this program. The email address I am most comfortable broadcasting over the internet can be derived from goodsweettea"at"nospamhotmail.com.

Hult was the last option if you did not get any acceptance by other top business schools. My boy friend applied over 5 schools last year, all are rejected except HULT. He studies in San Francisco now. Though his GMAT was low, he are offered scholarship, far exceeds his expectation. Why not consider it as last option?

As far as I know, many applicants got scholarship from Hult, however, only those with both high GMAT and good working experience got truly attractive scholarship hehe. Considering that Hult charge premium tuition fee, your boyfriend still have to pay a lot of money for Hult MBA after the ?regular scholarship? which is applicable to some applicants. You know what I mean:)

At the current stage, to be frank, some Hult applicant do take advantage of the opportunity that Hult is still relatively young and some outstanding candidates are still skeptical of Hult. Or we can say it will be very difficult for some Hultian to get into the tradition top 15 MBA programs.

However, good days won?t last forever, as Hult improved rapidly after 2007, so did the quality of Hultian consequently.
So far as I know, in 2007, when Hult first started its worldwide expansion, seems like around 15% Hultian in took advantage of the new brand of Hult, the ratio drop down to around 7% this year(which is my classmates).

With the obvious amazing upward trend of Hult MBA quality and influence, I personally believe 3 years later(2013 will be the year for the school see its 10 years anniversary rename to Hult ) the ratio will go down below 5%.
In 2018, after the school renamed as Hult for 15 years, Hult MBA will become a worldwide well-known and prestigious brand, plus unarguable status of NO.1 in its niche of International Business focus.
At that time, every Hultian will be qualified for any other tradition top 15 MBA programs! Your boyfriend will be very proud even as an alumnus then:)

Cheers, Hultian!

<blockquote>Hult was the last option if you did not get any acceptance by other top business schools. My boy friend applied over 5 schools last year, all are rejected except HULT. He studies in San Francisco now. Though his GMAT was low, he are offered scholarship, far exceeds his expectation. Why not consider it as last option?</blockquote>

As far as I know, many applicants got scholarship from Hult, however, only those with both high GMAT and good working experience got truly attractive scholarship hehe.

read the post. I am interested in 1 year MBA. Got questions after reading the post and talking to my friends who are studing in Boston university now.

1) Why it is american degree but no AASCB?
2) My friends in Boston says HULT campus is not "real" campus. It is in the "Building"? Is it true?
3) No campus facilities. Sports, Library... Is it true?
4) I spoke with few alumnis in Singapore few months ago. One of them told me graduate placement was bad last year. Is it true?
5) Alumnis seem not positive on this program when i spoke with them.Can anyone tell me more?

1. Hult professors tend to come from industry rather than research backgrounds. The latter is required (or at least preferred) by AACSB. Note HBS isn't AACSB accredited either.
2. Yes all of Hult campuses are buildings not campuses in the traditional sense. That is because Hult is not part of a bigger university.
3. No physical library. But a large database of online resources. Hult students have access to libraries in other nearby universities. When I was at Hult this included MIT.
4. The published stats are down as with all other business schools. But remain around 75% employed after 3 months which is not bad for a one-year program right now. In a good year the stats were 85%,which is comparable to many 2 year US programs that leave a lot of the 2nd year free for job hunting. In my year the program was so intense many of my classmates only looked for a job right before graduation because they amply didn't have time during the program. We complained the workload was too high.
5. As with all schools some are some aren't. From my experience the ones that are happiest are those who did their due diligence before applying and made sure the program met their objectives. As you can see from this thread there are plenty of alumni like me that are happy. And very positive on the direction the achool is taking.

I had some of the same questions:

1) AASCB requires all programs to be offered at all locations...Hult has 5 (rumor is more to come) campuses that have different masters programs on different campuses, plus undergraduate in London...They can only qualify for AASCB once or if they stop growing so each degree program can be offered at each location of the school

2) Boston campus is located inside the EF Boston building, currently occupying 2 floors (of 5). EF is owned by Bertil Hult....found an article in Boston Herald that talks about a new HUGE project for a new campus in Boston...currently on hold, but soon to be built (http://news.bostonherald.com/business/real_estate/view/20100930allstonbrighton_steps_up_with_big-city_projects/srvc=home&position=also)

3) No library is true...but access to an "electronic Database" that has EVERYTHING a library would and subscription based magazines like McKinsey Quarterly and Harvard Business Review...Hult is not a research school meaning no PhD programs, so take that for what its worth...other facilities are all in place (no healthclub, but I visited Boston campus, great pub and restaraunt, and cafeteria in building with executive chef)

4) Poorer students complain a lot, i wonder why they let these complainers into the program. most alumns i spoke with have jobs or started their own companies...

5) Talk to more alumns, the crowd you have been intouch with were probably among the "rotten" bunch

hope this helps...please share any more info you find that will shed more light on your questions as you continue your research

Thank you. I have no interest after reading above information. My GMAT is 650. I think I can apply better one year MBA with AASCB, real campus, better alumni network. This is important for MBA study. HULT is not appropriate for me.

Hult has no plans to pursue AASCB at the current time. This accreditation is reserved for schools which emphasize research. Hult employs literally world-leading business practitioners. The education is very focused on practical skills. If you want to work in consulting (and you have the ability, which people often neglect) or international business, this school is amazing.

I'm not sure what you mean by "better" alumni network. We are the most international business school in the world. People come here to meet amazing business professionals from everywhere. Last night, I had some classmates over to my flat. Canada, Italy, Iran, Spain, Germany, Tunisia, South Africa, USA, Japan, India, and Dubai were all represented. There are a total of 42 countries represented in my program. I do not know of a school with so much international exposure.

Again, I don't understand exactly your point in bringing up the GMAT. Is the implication that you scored too high to go to HULT? I did get a 680 on one practice test...while I was very drunk. All my other practice tests and my official were about 100 points higher than that. Plenty of my classmates smoked you on the GMAT as well. One of my friends here got a 55 on math.

I know of several schools that have amazing connections and put wonderful resources behind their most talented students. HULT is certainly one of them.

On your second to last sentence, different factors are important to different people. The important thing is to find a school that meets your needs as an individual.

To address the other fellow's point about job placement, no school is going to "place" you in a job. Ok, maybe in some communist countries. If you are talented, show up prepared, and study hard you will have no trouble getting an awesome job.
