MBA and specialised business Master’s programmes continue to be in the focus of Indian professional. As the 2014 Financial Times (FT) survey illustrates, despite the financial crisis, there is still a growing need for globally experienced business leaders and entrepreneurs.

93% of MBA graduates started their dream jobs upon graduation, reports the latest survey of the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC).

Piyush Awadhesh, recent graduate from The Lisbon MBA with an IT background, highlights as the most valuable experience during his studies “the immersion period at MIT Sloan School of Management which gives a good external insight into the European business and other economies”. Studying in a European MBA enabled him to combine the best of his own experience with immersion in Europe and the USA.
