How Australia?

I wrote the following to a acquaintance on the ISB-PGP yahoo group about my decision to select Australia for my MBA.

After a lot of deliberation I have decided to apply for a MBA in Australia.

Here are my reasons :

One, I wanted to study in a developed country to get a good education, to understand their systems, get networking and also study in a multi-cultural place where you learn and understand people from different cultures.

1. I cannot afford the top schools in the US.
2. I cannot afford the UK scools (including living)
3. Now the option which is left open to me is to look at India/Asia.

I decided on ISB and had a look at the IIMs

I said NO to IIMs (one because it is real tough to pass the CAT and two I did not find a of experienced people studying there).

Now I started looking at SIngapore. NUS and Nanyang are good. I had a chat with some of friends who graduated from there. The feedback I received was that - The profs were good, curriculum is good BUT the asian students are reall bad in discussions and debates and also the
job scene was bad. Still I had my options open.

At this point in time I was suggested Australia. I looked at the education system there and it was amazing. The standards were decent and the infrastructure was very good.

The cost was competitive and living was ok. Coupled with the VISA process was comparitively easier and also since I am married it made things much easier. Like, my wife automatically gets a visa and also she can work full time on a dependent visa as I am studying a masters course. This brings down the cost further.

So looking at everything I decide on Australia.

In Australia I am not going for the top colleges as I cannot again afford them. I am going for the next ladder.

I have offers from QUT in Brisbane and University of South Australia (UniSA) in Adelaide.

I may most likely go for UniSA.
