    I believe, views would differ here and as per my perception I would say that if one's goal is to ultimately settle in India and is absolutely certain that he/she will work for Indian, not global, corporations, staying in India can be a good call. You can develop a strong India-based network. However, if you think you might work for global firms as part of their presence in India, be careful. An international MBA might put you in good standing with the global headquarters.Finally irrespective of which school you get into India or Abroad, you need to prove yourself once you join the workplace. You need to market and sell yourself, having the MB... view more

    In my opinion students should not simply pursue education abroad just for the sake of foreign education,proper research should be done while selecting the colleges or universities.The emphasis should be to get quality education which can enhance the career prospects.

    MBA in UK is not a costly affair. In India MBA costs around 5 to 8 lakhs depends upon the college and normally we dont calculate the living expenses for 2 year. It also cost two years of life. Wheras in UK it is one year and you save one year of your life. In UK , though it is a costly country, what we pay in India rupees is only Rs.6 or 7 Lacs for full tuion fees. you can get schorlaships and discounts on this. you can earn your living expenses by doing part time jobs.The system of study is more practical and they get true international exposure. It is not just reproducing something on exams you can get degree. you have to give many ssignmen... view more

    I would say that studying abroad definitely have benefit of more exposure, better infrastructure, better Faculties but India is also picking up slowly, The B-schols like ISB, S.P.Jain, GLIMS and IIMs are few of the Examples.

    MBA in abroad to whom this discussion is targeting? Just for 2-3% of the community people.

    arun dev I agree to your points that US, UK and many other developed nations have world class universities, but we must also not forget the fact that they are developed countries and we are developing, US attain Independence more that 300 years ago UK was was never under Imperial rule, despite all this Indian students have made their presence felt in the global corporate level, which I feel is a tremendous achievement keeping in mind the fact that our Indian institutions are not in top 100 institutes of the world.Coming to MRMurthy's comments, he might have its own opinion, but we must also keep in mind just 2 days after his comments on IITs... view more

    Priya I agree to your points, because studying abroad helps students to attain their education in a multicultural environment, and this helps them to inculcate in them some of the best practices, which they can use while working or while setting up their own business.

    I think one must not overburden themselves financially just for the sake of studying abroad, there are many good and world class Institutes and Universities in India which offers MBA, like IIMs, FMS and many more.

    From my point of view MBA from India must be the better option rather than going abroad. because the kind of education regarding the management concern we will get the more quality education in the country than the overseas.For doing MS , surely student must think about going abroad.Because they will get better quality education there.The kind of teaching we are providing , plus the knowledge required to set up a business or their own venture , they are getting it here only, they dont need to go outsideMost of the industry giants and the experts helps the students to set up their business.So I think they must take the management education fro... view more

    The quality and course fee of education in India is really appreciable. Again it’s a bitter fact that we cannot match the global quality as other foreign universities do, recent critics by ‘Narayana murthi’ is just an example of it. In the list of “Times higher education rankings for universities” IIT Mumbai ranks between 301 to 351 and no other universities placed in the list. Well if our educational system gets proper nourishment then students will prefer to study in India even if they get scholarship to ‘Harvard’. I am very sad to tell the truth but of today foreign universities are better than Indian universities.

    MBA in US is a two year programme and in UK it is a one year programme. Here I am comparing India MBA with MBA in UK.1. The courses are more specilised and that kind of specilisation in MBA is not available.2. In UM MBA has three levels.a) meant for genreal managers or managing director, where in the admission criteria is mnimum of three years of managerial experience. I repeat it should be mangerial experience.For example the most brilliant students from India, IAS and IPS are given one year to leave togo to UK for MBA. Only after 5 years of expereince before posted as collectors or managing Directors they ahve to complethe this course.b) m... view more

    SmritiMatra I agree to your points, but one must simply do not pursue MBA abroad, just for the sake of a foreign degree, because many universities abroad are also not good and its not worth doing MBA from those universities.

    I think MBA abroad is a good exposure for those who are looking forward to join MNCs or corporate with offices/clients abroad. It allows you to study culture and mindset of students and people from different countries and how they see things. For majorly Indian companies with Indian clients, I think IIMs are good enough.
