Overview of MBA IN EUROPE
Europe having a diverse and rich concentration of culture in their continent serves as an ideal choice for those students wishing to study, work and benefit from such a life.
Also, since most international programmes require that students pay in dollars for their fees, recent dip of the dollar rate meant cheaper fees for students admitted under such programmes.
European MBA programmes are also famous for their 1-year MBA programmes which are nothing short of a two year programme, except that they compress all that content into one year of intensive course scheduling.
There is no uniform accreditation standard for MBA programmes all over the continent. The advantage is that a student would have a wide variety of choices to choose from, he/she could choose the most suitable course in the most suitable environment. The disadvantage is that due to this non-uniformity, students will have to go through a list of all possible types of degrees in order to make an informed choice. However this does not weigh much as a problem.
Exams to be taken include the usual GMAT and TOEFL/IELTS. You are expected to have atleast a 3.0 on a 4-point grading scale as GPA and with some considerable amount of working experience. An applying student’s CV must radiate that he/she is academically strong and that has even devoted time to pursuing projects or activities in this field of Business Administration.
Other items in the prerequisite skill set include leadership capabilities, being a strong contender, quick at learning, having excellent quantitative, analytical and logical skills, etc.
Requirements on eligibility differ from country to country. Some countries make it compulsory for the students to know two languages on admission and expect them to learn a third upon graduation. European B-schools try their best to preserve the diversity of their school. Therefore, on application to such programmes, one must try their best to stand out.
