Are you considering a graduate business degree (e.g. MBA or Master of Business Administration) from a top-ranked international program to take your career to the next level?

The choice of school is critical to making your MBA a success. Factors which you should take into account include international reputation, specialization, one vs. two year program, US vs. Europe, alumni relations, campus etc. Most important is that you make the right choice for YOU!
