Top 7 Things to Look For In a Business School

April 2017

A business degree requires a huge investment of time, money and effort, so it is crucial to ensure your programme and school meet your needs. Before you choose your business school ask yourself what kind of study abroad experience you want to have? Look for a school that fulfils both your academic and career goals. Choosing the right business school plays an important role in shaping your career. Many organizations today need workers to complete a degree program before entering the workforce.

Pursuing a business program abroad allows you to experience a culture that is very different from the one that you had back home, it will also help you meet new people which will be an advantage to your professional career.

When looking for a school, consider the following factors mentioned below to help you choose the right business school.

Study Abroad Programs


The location of your programme is just as important as choosing the right business school. It is essential that you visit the school and see what the location has to offer. Take the time to consider whether you wish to live in a big metropolitan city or a small town. It is also important to survey the companies located near your school as they will prove to be handy in terms of jobs and internships. It is vital that you choose a location you are comfortable in.


Cost is another important factor that needs to be taken into account when looking into a business school. You will need to determine how much funding you can afford before deciding on a school. You also need to analyse what the costs of living are for both on campus and off. Additionally, you will need to evaluate your tuition fees, accommodation, and food along with other expenses.

Choose a degree you're passionate about

This is one of the most important factors that you will need to consider before you select your school. Take note of the courses that cater to your needs. The right University will help you build knowledge and skills in the subject you are most passionate about.

Post course employment

Look for a business school that places their graduates in their desired fields. Knowing how quickly graduates can find jobs in their respective fields will help you determine the school's capability. By doing a research on the post-employment rate, you will be able to gain better insight on the school that is right for you.

Success of past alumni

By going through the school website, you will be able to gain valuable information on the success rates of past alumni. This will give you a fair idea on the number of students that have graduated from the university and what they are currently doing. The success rate of the previous alumni plays an important role in helping you choose the right school.

Student life

Considering you will be busy with classes all week, you need to find a school that has a wide range of extracurricular activities. This will ensure that you maintain a balance between your study time and your free time. These activities will help you unwind after a long day in class.

Teaching methods

One of the most overlooked aspects when it comes to selecting schools is the teaching methods. Although there are different styles of teaching, it is important that you know which one your school follows. Since most of your time will be spent in the classroom, it is essential that you know how these classes are conducted.
