Here are the top 7:
Every door opens: Up to 1500 companies recruiting for the brightest and best
At the world’s top MBA schools, there are often more companies recruiting (the number above is from HBS in 2011) than there are students in the graduating batch. There is literally no line of work that you cannot get into; graduates from top schools have done everything from consulting to catering, from private equity to private detection and from business leadership to business creation.
True diversity: Up to 50 different nationalities in your batch
If you’ve always wondered how business works in rural Vietnam, you don’t need to rely on Google or Wikipedia when you’re in a great business school; you just ask the person sitting next to you!
In demand: 100% of people ask for your advice on MBAs
In a lighter vein, once you’ve cracked the GMAT, cracked your essays, cracked your interviews and made it to the top schools, everyone will ask you how you did it all the time. You’ll feel almost like our star faculty at a Jamboree training program!
Top business leadership: 40% of the S&P 500 companies have MBA CEOs
Think of that stat for a minute. The top companies in the world are often family owned and controlled, but 40% of them still hired an MBA to run their behemoths.
Logical placements: Spread over 6+ months, multiple interviews happen over coffee
In the world’s top B-Schools, they take the business of planning your career very carefully; you can have multiple conversations (there are few high-pressure, do-or-die interview situations) with every company you’re interested in. After all, deciding your path in life is not something you want to entrust to a single day, is it?
Huge networking opportunities: Close to a million US MBA grads alone
Leadership in industry worldwide is dominated by MBAs, and the alumni networks are strong. Each of the top schools has a membership of over 10,000 – with HBS topping the list at 80,000 – and you will be in distinguished company for the rest of your life. You will be in the company of people who are changing and shaping the world as we know it today.
Guaranteed success: Of those who sit for placements, the top schools regularly see a 100% placement rate
At the end of your MBA degree, the world is your oyster. You can choose to become an entrepreneur, a high powered business leader, a social impact creator, or pretty much anything else. So it’s comforting to note that, whatever you do decide to become, there are almost no failures at all.
