    9.5 /10

    I choose to study in the UK because it was much affordable than in other major counties. I didn't much about the universities there, so I consulted a few educational consultants and they helped me shortlist a few universities. I applied to them and I was lucky enough the get accepted in two of them among which I choose Edinburgh based on its student reviews that I read online and the curriculum as it suited me better. To apply here, I had to register through the graduate application portal which cost me around £50.

    Course Curriculum :

    The program was only one year long, hence it was very rigorous. It mainly focused on a range of core business, management, and leadership disciplines, integrating courses that helped us build our capacity for incisive analysis, innovation, and strategic leadership. Through the curriculum, I also got the opportunity of working with reputed companies and gain in-field experience. The structure of our MBA program was quite flexible and provided us with a choice of electives alongside compulsory courses.

    Diversity, Course structure, Location (Student city and beautiful place), University Ranking and Large Alumni group. Interaction with previous student helped in taking decision

    Course Curriculum :

    Course was very much focused on building Strategic leadership and Professional development skills. Curriculum was excellent and more of practical driven, filled with many live projects with good clients/companies. Though little bit of analytical part was missing but they have implemented that after last 2020 batch feedback.
