What is an MBA?

By definition, an MBA (here’s the full form of MBA) is an internationally accepted masters (post-graduate) level degree that
  • imparts a strong theoretical foundation in business concepts
  • provides practical opportunities (via internships, group assignments and individual projects) to test what students learn in the class
  • builds hard-skills in the areas of management and leadership
  • polishes a range of soft-skills like communication, motivation and negotiation
  • opens up global opportunities for career growth
  • allows MBA students to start an independent business after graduating
Whether you are looking at MBA courses in India or abroad, the choices can make the process overwhelming.

Types of MBA courses

MBA courses can come in a wide variety of formats. The most common types of MBA courses are as follows: Full-time MBA, Executive MBA, Part time MBA, Correspondence Course, Distance MBA Courses, Online MBA courses…Phew! Quite a mind-boggling choice. Each one has its pros and cons. Though there is no single best format, the full-time MBA format can get you the biggest bang for your buck. The average duration of full-time MBA programs can range between 1 to 2 years. You’ll find programs like INSEAD that are shorter than 1 year. The duration of part-time programs can extend up to 3 years, since students are working and studying at the same time. Read this post to understand the different types of MBA courses. There are no clear answers to which one would be best for everyone. Here’s a candidate who explains how he tackled the online eMBA course vs full-time MBA dilemma.

MBA course fees

While the MBA fees of many low ranking programs (that often struggle to get students enrolled) might be very low, the fees can really shoot up for the elite management programs. And it’s not just the course fees that you need to consider. There are other costs too like the visa fees, books, laptop, flight costs, study trip expenses and the biggest (hidden) one that most MBA students overlook – the opportunity cost. Read this article to get an idea of the MBA Cost in India, USA and across the world. Not sure whether you should go for a traditional MBA (e.g. PGP from IIM) in India or a foreign MBA? Read the views of an Indian student who attended the best MBA courses in India and abroad: IIM MBA in India vs MBA abroad: Which is better? Our view is that it doesn’t make much practical sense to go for a business degree when you haven’t spent enough time in a real job understanding how the corporate world works. Having said that, bschools offer the MiM degree for students without work experience. Since good MBA courses are expensive, many students fund their MBA courses using education loans. However, a few smart students who manage the application strategy well get a significant amount of financial aid. Read how these students got partial and full MBA scholarships from really good MBA universities.
