The general perception everyone has is that the US leads when it comes to education and other facilities, indeed it does but since the pandemic here’s the list of upcoming countries that are not only rising high for education but are also giving high opportunities to students for a better career after MBA:
First on the list of ‘Best Countries for MBA’ is Canada. Pandemic is just an excuse but Canada has been a favourite for Indian student for years. Why you ask? It has top class Universities and world-wide accepted degrees. In addition to that, the career openings and options to apply for citizenships attract more and more international students. Sounds like a dreamland? It’s a reality. Canadian universities are tied up with universities worldwide making it easier for your MBA to be recognisable.
One of the first countries to become virus-free and having leaders like no other. This country has not only been topping the charts in the education sector but has also been doing well being Australia’s neighbour giving huge career opportunities to students. New Zealand is known for its cutting edge state of the art education system that makes students’ hunger to be there.
One must’ve never heard Denmark even coming up as a top option for Universities providing an MBA course. But with the progress of the Nordic countries in their education system, a lot of career opportunities have opened up for students.

The “New Normal” Due to COVID-19
COVID-19 has restricted the conventional way of teaching and made us resort to online classes. So, even if you take admission in one of the best countries for an MBA, you’re going to study at least a semester through online classes. Most of us want to study abroad to get an international experience of different cultures.
But since the classes are going to be online, the question is:
- Is it worth so much money to study abroad through online classes?
- Does studying from a foreign university make sense when it’s going to be online?
Weigh your pros and cons and come to a decision that is the best for you and your future.
Is it safe to travel abroad?
No, it is not even safe to go out of your house as of now. But, once the situation gets better (it will!), universities are going to switch back to on-campus studies soon. Till then, we stay at home, study online and follow preventive measures to keep ourselves safe.

Study in India- an option to consider
A lot of students got selected in a good MBA college somewhere in abroad but the dilemma is whether to go or not. If you think that it is not worth risking your health and investing a lot of money, then don’t worry. Studying in India is a very good option to consider since we have some really good institutions like IIMs and NMIMS that have a great brand value.
Even though the classes are going to be online, the cost of everything is going to be way lesser than studying the same online course from a Canadian or American university. Here are some benefits to studying in India:
- You do not need to apply for Visa
- Tuition and accommodation cost is very less
- It will be easier to get a good placement in India
- You cut down travel expenses
COVID-19 might have slowed things down and put you in a lot of dilemmas, but the thing is- whether you choose to study abroad to stay back in India, an MBA is always going to help you. With an exponential rise in commerce these days, Business Administration is the need of the hour. A global experience in the field of MBA is going to be beneficial to your future prospect, but make sure you consider all options before coming to a decision.
