The Management Journey

Research Your B-School Options

  • How is the B-School Ranked globally? This gives you a good understanding of its caliber.
  • Simultaneously, research if the B-School has established Partnerships with International B-Schools – such partner ships enable the mutual sharing of best study practices as well as the possibility of Student Exchange.
