    Hello guys I'm a MiM aspirant for '11 intake.

    University of Maastricht, School of Business & Economics - International Business
    Queens University Ontario - MSc In Management

      Dear Aditya,

      I am Mohinish, currently doing my Masters in Management(MIM) at Warwick Business School.I also have an engineering background, BE Electronics and Communication from PSG college of Technology, Anna University, India. I would strongly recommend you consider Warwick as one of your top options for pursuing a Masters.

      The reason's being:

      • The mix of International students at Warwick gives you and opportunity to interact with student from different cultures and backgrounds.
      • The MIM course at warwick is designed to ensure the core subjects are understood clearly to students from each and every background of undergraduation.
      • The Professors are extremely friendly and easily approachable.
      • The course is very corporate oriented. It prepares you for the corporate World. Careers Sessions are included in the course to help you prepare yourself for the market situation. Apart from this the University provides additional career Guidance as well.
      • The Warwick Experience, the state of the art facilities on Campus which includes The Library, accommodation, Gym and other recreational activities.
      • Warwick University it self is a splendid place to be the campus is always buzzing with activites, A very active students Union with over 250 clubs and societies, Which include Technology, Cultural, Adventure sports and many more.

      I think the reasons I have given are a few among the many that a student should consider Warwick Business School.

      Hi Joaquim

      I'm a student from India as well, and I'm planning to apply to Vlerick for the Master's in General Management program.

      Just a quick question: Will this degree hold me in good stead if I choose to return to India, i.e. is it well known outside of Belgium?

      Thanks and Merry Christmas

      Dear Joaquim,
      I cannot apply to vlerick this year as I do not have GMAT score,
      Hence based upon my GRE score, I am applying to above universities. Can you suggest me any other univs where I can apply? (I am from engineering background)

      Dear Aditya,

      I am a former Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School student (graduated in 2010) and I would strongly recommend to you that school. It's a very international school that is every year a bit stronger.

      you will find for example : Ten reasons to join useful.

      I could summaries Vlerick like this:

      • good mix between theory and practical examples
      • great teachers, always there to help
      • Great class managers (every class is managed by a Vlerick staff)
      • amazing In-company project (2 class mates and I had to develop an entirely new departement in the yacht mangement industry)
      • cool business games along the year
      • good parties (play hard, work hard)
      • good networking events
      • A proactive career center with loads of help in order to find the perfect job afterwards

      I could continue for long but I will stop here.
      Feel free to ask specific questions and I will answer asap
