Master in management

    my first recommendation is to exchange "Which of the programs is better and why" for "Which of the programs is better for ME and why is it better for ME?". Each of these programs comes from a renowned and internationally accredited institution, which means that they have all the highest quality. The questions, however, is which one is the best for YOU?

    In my eBook Business Masters: How you find the best Master in Management or MBA I distinguish between your CAREER GOALS, RESOURCES and EXPEREINCE GOALS. This the triangle of your decision making.

    CAREER GOALS: The best program is the program that helps you at maximum to reach your career goals directly after yor studies. Example: If you wish to work for an investment bank but non eof your favorite employers recruits at the school, you have the wrong program - not because it is a low quality program but because it does not help you achieve your career goals.

    RESOURCES: If your GMAT score is 580 and the minimum GMAT score required at a specific school is 650 than it is the wrong program for you.

    EXPERIENCE GOALS: If two programs equally help you achieve your career goals and require more or less the same amount of resources from you - and if you wnat to study in a big city then, of course, you won't chose the program whose school is in the countryside.

    So, you have to (1) analyze your career goals, resources, and experience goals, (2) design an ideal type of master in management and (3) compare programs according to your personal and individual criteria.

    In my eBook, you find strategies and tips on how to do that.

    Best wishes,
