Look into details such as the economy and culture
of the country, career opportunities after

need to find the perfect match.
It is important to know the reputation of the university
within the country and abroad together with its

5.You are not alone
Clear all your doubts this weekend & get the real feeling!
There is no better way to clear your doubts than by talking to the right people. Get in contact with the recruiters, admission officers and program team members so that they can answer all your questions regarding the MBA and the university.

7.Get the real feeling!
There are always feelings involved when it comes to making your final decision. It is key that you experience the university and the program by visiting them, talking to current students, professors and alumni. The online environment can give you an idea of each institution. However, the best way for you to get the real feeling is to experience the student life yourself.

experience a rollercoaster of emotions as
