Which MBA? Summary

Which MBA?: A critical guide to the world's best MBAs by George Bickerstaffe

The MBA is becoming a necessity for anyone wanting to explore new career opportunities, accelerate personal development and increase their salary, but taking an MBA isn't a decision that should be taken lightly. There is a lot to consider, such as financing, choosing the right program school, format, duration, location etc. Finding the right program for the individual can make the difference between an enjoyable and rewarding experience, or an unhappy and frustrating one. "Which MBA?" sets out to answer all the questions of a prospective student. For the first time, it also offers a ranking of the business schools included in the directory section, based on data supplied by the business schools themselves and by their students and alumni.
