Guidance For Choosing A MBA Program /MBA/guidance-for-choosing-a-mba-program.html /MBA/guidance-for-choosing-a-mba-program.html Deciding on the right MBA program can be a daunting task. Over 30 schools in Australia offer MBA programs. An MBA can cost considerable time and money to complete, so how do you pick a school that is right for you? Here are some points to consider:

mba student_checklistAccreditation

Find out if the business school is accredited by a higher learning commission. One such commission is the Association of Masters in Business Administration (AMBA). Another accrediting body is the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) International. Accreditation indicates that the business school sets and maintains high standards of learning.


Local publications and magazines will rank top performing MBA schools based on factors such as admission requirements, faculty-to-student ratio, GPA, and so on. Go to your local library and find out which business schools are rated better than others.

Career Assistance

Find out if the business school offers job placement assistance, internships, and career development services. Also, check if the school faculty members hold positions in industry.

Cost/Financial Aid

Consider all the expenses involved with attending a particular business school, including tuition, housing, books, and transportation. If you will be taking a leave of absence from work, figure in the loss of wages too. Find out if the school offers any financial assistance or scholarships.


If you work full- or part-time, you will most likely take courses at nights or on weekends. See if your required classes are available during these times. Even if you are a traditional student, determine whether you can start classes immediately; some schools don't offer courses for every semester or quarter.

Locationmba students learning business skills

You will have an easier time taking classes and engaging in school activities if you are closer to campus and not encumbered by traffic or other obstacles. Visit the business school and determine whether its location is good for you and your possible commute.


Does the school have sufficient computer lab space, library resources, and audio-visual materials? If you miss a class, can the school provide it online? Determining these matters ahead of time will save you much frustration later on.


Find out if the school culture is suitable for you. Are the students relaxed, or is everyone rushed, with no time to talk to or help you? School culture can have a significant impact on the quality of your learning experience.

Brad Stevenson who graduated with an MBA from the Geck School of Management in 2005 explains what he got out of his MBA.

A lot of prospective MBA students look at getting an MBA to increase their yearly income and base their decision on a cost/benefit situation, but for me an MBA gave me a nice career break after 12 years at work and a opportunity to go back and learn some new fundamental skills like the following:

     · Communicating effectively

  · Filtering ideas

  · Organizing

  · Negotiating

  · Persuading other people

  · Maximizing time

I have earned more money by obtaining an MBA, but I have to say it didn't just come from my MBA degree. Before, I was a Maniacal engineer who got a promotion to move up to management. The only problem was that I had no experience in management.
My MBA gave me the essential tools and skills to work in a management position. Now I have obtained a new job at a larger company managing four times the amount of employees.

The MBA gave Stevenson the right confidence to manage at a much larger level then compared to his previous job.

When I started my new job after obtaining my MBA, the company that hired me was restructuring the business and was going though major changes. Coming out of MBA School, I brought energy and new ideas for my company to consider. I brought in consultants and since I knew how to speak their language, we were on the same page and dealt with the issues on hand.

Mr. Stevenson wants to tell future MBAs to have an open mind about MBA school and know that you will have a range of useful experiences throughout your MBA classes.

One might think that MBA school includes some of the following like learning new skills and enhancing your knowledge of your studied field, but some might not realize that MBA school can challenge the way you think.

I learned models such as the Foundations of Management Thought, Philosophy Thinking Strategies, and Psychology Applied to Managerial Skills. You will face challenging assumptions about yourselves and others that for me concluded in a positive life changing experience.
