Beyond the MBA Hype: A Guide to Understanding and Surviving B-Schools
About the Book

Most Indian MBA applicants are completely at sea when it comes to approaching international education opportunities. This is primarily because the MBA selection process and the parameters considered by the top business schools abroad for admitting candidates into their fold are very different from what Indian students are used to. Beyond the MBA Hype talks about the typical issues, challenges and dilemmas that Indian applicants grapple with when it comes to international MBA programmes – from the typical candidate profile to the selection and admission process, to what to expect in the course itself as well as after completing MBA.

Whether you are an employee looking for a change in your job profile or a fresh graduate looking for a secure financial future, an MBA degree is often seen as a silver bullet. Alas, the reality is that the MBA system isn’t all shiny and perfect.

In this guide, admission consultant Sameer Kamat, an MBA from the University of Cambridge and founder of MBA Crystal Ball tells you home truths that no school website or consultant will ever tell you, including the following:

*Are you cut out for an MBA in the first place?
*How to choose an appropriate school and how to apply.
*What to expect in the classroom.
*Which skills are required in the business world?
*What are the likely job prospects after you graduate?

This book will not just help you embark on your MBA journey with more clarity, it will save you time and money, and, most importantly, direct you to your career goals.
