Although the Financial Times ranks only the top 100 Global MBA programmes each year, the number of accredited MBAs on offer worldwide extends to thousands. Thus it is worth trying to find a programme that meets all your needs.
An initial period of self-reflection is advisable; ask yourself why you want to get an MBA, says Stacy Blackman, business school admissions consultant and author. “Is it so that you can earn a promotion within your current organisation? Are you trying to start your own company? Do you dream of switching into a completely different field.
“Knowing where you want to be at the end, will help you decide which programmes make the most sense for you,” she continues.
