Asking the right questions
When making an investment, you need to ask the right questions in order to make the best decision. The same goes with your choice of MBA colleges.

Question 1: Are you credible?
The fact that a school is offering an MBA doesn’t mean that they are certified to do so or that they have gained sufficient credibility. You need to find out if they are approved by the relevant authorities to offer these courses. You also need to check out how long they have been around and the kind of alumni they have. This will give you some insight into the quality of their work.
Question 2: Who are your faculty?
It is said that a student can never be greater than their master. If that is true then you need to choose a great master in order to have the best possible learning experience and competitive edge later on.
Take a look through their faculty list and see their credentials, achievements and current projects. Examine their industry experience and where possible get some students to give you their personal impression of the faculty. You can also interact directly with them to get a feel of who they are and what they are about.
Question 3: What is the content of your curriculum?
The reason you are furthering your education is to improve your competitive edge in an already dynamic industry; whether in your personal business or in employment. To achieve this, you need to learn using a curriculum that speaks to current issues in the industry and addresses them using the latest models and schools of thought.
The syllabus should provide current and relevant skills so make sure to check it out before making your application. You don’t want to be learning Stone Age tactics in the information age now do you?
Question 4: What about placements?
The proof of an institution’s credibility is based on the quality of their placements. Good placement opportunities give you the advantage of working with leading professionals and gaining invaluable skills in the process.
You can get this information from the institution or the alumni to see where and how placements for students are done.
