Key points to note when applying for Business Schools
- As one moves into the BBB+ towards the B and other categories, one has to pay increasing attention to the RoI factor – a combination of the fee and placement statistics.
- A b-school that may appeal to an aspirant may not appeal to another. This is because of differences in aspirations, abilities, financial conditions, etc.
- Do not go only by the Salary data and generally be wary of the attractive claims made by the b-schools.
If you wish to choose between schools within a category, you are advised to find more information about the specific schools.
