Best Business Schools In the World
Is business school a waste of time and money? The answer depends on the business school. The school you choose for your MBA can have a dramatic impact on your future career, helping determine where and how fast you get a job, and how much you’re going to be paid. It’s not only that. Business schools are great places to network. Harvard isn’t a great business school because they provide the best education or they admit the smartest people in the World. Sure, their faculty is one of the best but we live in the information age and you can get the same information at a fraction of the cost of a Harvard education. There are other universities with students that have higher IQs or GMAT scores. What makes Harvard such a great business school isn’t what the school or the faculty offer; it is what other students offer.
While there are a ton of business schools around, the return on investment is highest if you manage to get admitted to the best business schools in the World.
