Here, a survey held among the B-Schools answers the question 'Why students prefer B-schools abroad?'
The survey was held among the B-Schools across the world by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). It reveals that, due to the lack of quality and opportunity in India for management studies, several Indian students prefer management education provided in foreign countries.
Insights contributed by admission professionals from these programs provide an insider's vantage point for understanding current demand trends in graduate management education.
According to the survey, 56% of management programmes in the US had more international applicants this academic year, especially from India.
Among full-time MBA programmes in the Asia-Pacific region, one-year management programmes (executive MBA) reported 53 per cent and two year programmes reported 46 per cent increase, compared with last year's survey, in which 77 per cent of one-year, full-time MBA's and 79 per cent of full-time two-year MBA programmes reported application gains from 2011, said the report.
Moreover, placements in most IIM's had come down last year, this is also a reason for students to look at universities abroad for management courses.
