How to choose the right MBA?

Join live webinar session

Deciding to pursue an MBA is a big decision. Choosing the right MBA is just as important.

There are many important questions you should ask before matriculating into a programme. For example, what is the difference between an MBA and Specialist Master’s Degree? Which one will meet my career goals? How do I cope with the part-time studies while managing between family and a full-time job? What is the credential of the MBA award and what type of classmates will I be meeting in my classes? The answers to these questions will shape your career and influence your professional network.

Before making the decision, talk to our experienced consultants and find out which MBA programme suits your skills, academic talents and career goals.

Increase your market value with a Double Master’s Degree in Business Administration and Human Resources Management

Join live webinar session

Limiting your interests to just one Master’s Degree is not easy, especially when you are deciding between a few choices. On the other hand, a Double Master’s Degree allows you to satisfy your intellectual curiosity in more than just one field of interest.

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is highly regarded qualification in the world. The MBA curriculum aims to strengthen your general management acumen as well as communication and leadership skills whereas a specialised business Master’s Degree aims to meet the market demands of a specific field gap. Although they are both very different degrees, they complement each other very well.
