In India, it has almost become a necessity to “do an MBA”, driven by a perception that it is necessary to have an MBA to get a good start in your career. This has led to a proliferation of business schools, as well as to global institutes targeting the Indian student. Many Indian students are applying to international business schools. While this is mostly for masters level MBA courses, some are bachelors level students. Business programmes can be looked at 2 levels: 1) Bachelors programmes and 2) Masters programmes. A foreign Bachelors in business is not likely to give a student the kind of edge that she is looking for in terms of job prospects. In the UK, studying business is like any other subject in the Arts. Companies in the UK bel­ieve in training natural ability, and hire based on tests and interviews. Other countries fall between the two types of recruitment, where the degree helps, but isn’t the key to success. Finally, be mindful that even at an undergraduate level, business degrees cost more.
