The USA is home to some of the best colleges in the world. Some of these are more famous than the others though even those that aren’t too popular or known of provide students with amazing education which may be as good as those provided by the more popular songs. There are over 3000 universities in the USA and each of them is known for their postgraduate and/or undergraduate programs.
Here are some universities with the best MBA programs in the US:
• New York University
• Columbia University
• Cornell University
• University of Dallas
• Pepperdine University
These are examples of some universities that are popular for their business schools. As a student never make the mistake of applying only for the Ivies. Look into other universities too. Remember that competition is fierce nowadays- more so now than ever before because of the fact that so many universities receive applications from students with great academic records though some of them do not get into the universities of their choice for some reason or the other.
Most universities would generously provide you with scholarships and/or financial aid depending upon how badly they think you need it. 65 % of Harvard Business School’s students get scholarships of up to $20,000 a year.
Other business schools are just as impressive as that of Harvard’s. By way of example, Pepperdine University is known to be one of the best universities in the US and came in the Top 10 Business Schools within the USA. None of the colleges mentioned in the list are Ivy League colleges and yet they are all extremely popular choices amongst students.
Keep one thing in mind- everyone tries to get into the Ivies and so competition is fierce. If you are interested in getting into a good MBA school, consider one of the non-Ivies- these universities are cheaper and their standards are just as good as that of the Ivies. Plus, the chances of getting into these universities with generous scholarships and/or financial aid are much higher.
Another point you must remember is that colleges usually have the same tuition fees for similar programs. For example, the tuition fee of NYU, Harvard and George Washington University is the same as far as law is concerned. What makes these universities different is the faculty, chances of getting into them and the chances you have of getting into them with a scholarship.
