An MBA is the last formal full-time education endeavour for most of us. The experience at a top B-school is a life-changing one, both professionally and personally. Choosing the right B-school depends on a number of factors,

  • B-school’s Ranking
  • Duration of the Programme
  • Alignment with post-MBA goals
  • Tuition Fee & Living Expenses and Long-term ROI
  • Region / Country of the School
  • Your Eligibility (Work-ex, GMAT/GRE Requirements, etc.)

We have covered a few of the elements above to give you a one-stop view of the top-50 B-schools as per FT’s 2020 ranking including their GMAT score ranges, average work experience details and program durations.
