We interviewed Anshuman Pandey, CEIBS MBA Candidate for the Class Entering 2014, and learned about some of the strategies, best practices, and tips for the MBA Admission process (Research, GMAT, Essays and Balancing Work & MBA Admissions).

1) Why did you choose to join an MBA program?

There are many reasons which motivated me to do an MBA:

a. Many of the roles and positions I wanted to apply, required an MBA; or applicants with an MBA were given preference.

b. An MBA widens the horizons and increases your chances to thrive in new functions and new markets thus creating more opportunities. So if, down the line, I feel I need to switch my function, let’s say from Pharma to Luxury Brand Management it wouldn’t be a steep ask.

c.  I wanted to be part of the strategy team of a company that requires a thorough understanding of market forces and finances. An MBA would help me bridge this knowledge gap in a shorter span of time than if I were to slog on with my current qualification and role.

d.  Better compensation.
2) While shortlisting Business Schools what were your criteria. Why Asian Business Schools?

The Fletcher School has announced a new Dual Degree program in partnership with CEIBS (China Europe International Business School). The dual degree program will bring together The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University (The Fletcher School) and China Europe International Business School (CEIBS).

The goal of the dual degree program is to provide opportunity for students pursuing studies in International affairs and Business to receive both Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy (MALD) from The Fletcher School and MBA from CEIBS. As part of the program, students will spend first 12 months in CEIBS’s shanghai campus and 18 months at The Fletcher School in Medford, Massachusetts.

Students are required to complete the appropriate course in each program including language requirements that include competency in at least two languages. An added advantage of the MALD-MBA Dual Degree program is that students can start the program either at CEIBS or Fletcher. With the dual degree program, students will save one year, as it would take three and half years to complete each degree, separately.

"I have not reviewed many books for MBA Admission consulting companies but doing it now to give all applicants a brief idea on what the book covers. The book includes 31 top MBA programs - almost all the top schools you have heard or considering for your MBA application. Each chapter is categorized by US States where there is at least one top MBA program. So you have California and Massachusetts with the most number of MBA programs and several states with one top program (Washington, Minnesota, Washington D.C., Connecticut, Virginia, and Maryland) and other states with two to three MBA programs. The book focuses on four aspects of an MBA program - curriculum, cost, class profile and post-MBA salary. For me, the breakdown of the cost and post-MBA industry was useful to make my decision on selecting the top 5 programs for 2017-18. It is a fascinating read in an industry where consultants overprice for their expertise. I recently bought a 30-page guide for $49. Compared to the obvious observation in that book, the 300+ page, MBA in US - the Ultimate guide is a goldmine of information and analysis." - Verified Purchase (21st June 2017)

"I bought the ultimate guide after a friend recommended it for me. The guide covers a lot of ground on the history of each prominent US states and goes into the reasons why a certain industry emerged from each state. In addition to the analysis of the economy, trends and expected changes in the next 5 years, the book features top MBA programs in each state with an extensive study of its curriculum. Ultimate guide is an essential reference book for MBA Applicants if they want to shortlist MBA programs based on value and cost, and not just ranking. " - Verified Purchase (14th June 2017)

"Should be a required reading before applying for an MBA. School events and MBA Tours are PR events disguised as a Q&A. On the contrary, the book is an unbiased analysis of each Top MBA program in the US supported by a large dataset and historical context on each industry. The guide builds a case for indstries that are likely to emerge as favourite for MBA graduates. Thorough and a valuable book." - Verified Purchase (15th June 2017)

"What I liked: The breadth of the information. Some of my favorite nonfiction books have taken the same approach as the ultimate guide have - cover background information in-depth. In the book, the author uses parallel threads to demonstrate the history of the state and the rise of industries. Will make you think how schools thrive based on the policy set by the state. California's obsession with Technology has revolutionized how we do Business and changed post-MBA trends. Many MBA applicants will be consulting or doing marketing for a Technology company. That is one key finding from the book. The latest development in AI, FinTech, and Automation is an additional context that I found valuable in the book.

Very informative. I would recommend that you read the book at least once in chronological order before using Table of Contents." - Verified Purchase (2nd July 2017)
