3. What should we consider when preparing for an MBA?
Having read this article this far, you may have some idea of an MBA. This part will show you more details about it.
First thing first, you have to know about the MBA entrance examination. The MBA exam is divided into an interview and a written exam. The interview is divided into two parts, the advance interview, and the second interview. Students who participate in the conversation in advance are required to submit the application materials. The written test is a must for all MBA candidates. The written test subjects are only comprehensive (mathematics + logic + writing) and English. So in order to pass the MBA exam, we need to be acquainted with it and try hard.
Next, you should consider your study time and other time allocation. There are four types of MBA, including the full-time MBA program, the part-time MBA, the distance online MBA, and the executive MBA. There are three forms of completion in the full-time MBA program. Applicants for this program have the option to resign or suspend their current jobs for 10-24 months to pursue a full-time MBA program.
Last, you could choose your school and specific MBA program. We take Antai College for reference. ACEM has reached international agreements with more than 100 well-known business schools in the world, and over half of them are among the top 100 world-class universities or schools. It launched the SJTU-UBC International MBA Program, an English International MBA Program in 2002 with the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia in Canada. Qualified graduates are awarded a master’s degree in International Business Administration, as well as a certificate of completion from the Antai College of Economics & Management, SJTU.
