How different is ISB from the top 30 universities/B-Schools in the US?

August 9th, 2018

I am glad you asked. I did this a long time ago.

Schools in India are not cheap as compared with the top Global Schools.

Comparison between the Top Indian school and a US Top 10-business school. I have also inserted appropriate URL’s and loan EMI Calculators for both the countries(India and ABROAD).

Many applicants turn down top US Schools when they compare the costs. However, they do not understand the following scenario: They will have savings every month if they go to a School abroad. In India, they will be under a lot of debt considering the salaries and the loan repayment terms. See the calculations( With Fact statistics from the schools’ websites. This is factual data and not speculation.

MBA ABROAD: They will have savings and an amazing life style.
MBA INDIA: Majority of them will have Loan Burden and average life style.

See the table below and decide where do you want to be
