Top 100 B Schools, World-wide, to Choose From

Can you remember the last time you were asked to choose between two, very important but almost the same, alternatives? It wasn’t easy, was it? It took you a long time to decide, fearful that whichever way you go, you may never get the most out of the choice you made.

 That is life. It is a constant process of making choices. We all have bungled in one way or the other. Some seriously, while we can shrug off the others. We are constantly a work-in-process, made up of the little snapshots of our lives, put together.

 Going to business school is another snapshot. How it turns out depends on a lot of things. Other than the academic requirements, which you need to polish as you put a shine to your car, you are to make choices, i.e., specialization, budget, b school to go to etc.

To improve the odds in your favor, below is a list of the world’s top 100 business schools to choose from.

I know it is going to put in load in your thought-making process. But it is a necessary evil. Your MBA aspirations cannot be jeopardized from choices haphazardly made.

Arranged regionally, this list should open your horizon wider, your perspective a little better.
