5 Tips on Finding the Right MBA Program for You

After publishing the fifth annual Business as UNusual guide to graduate programs, we’ve learned a few things about what to look for when choosing an MBA program. These five tips will help you look beyond the obvious distinctions to find the best all-around fit for you.

Hone in on your interests – Do you want a program that is particularly strong in social responsibility, or one that is more focused on environmental topics? Go further and define how you see using your business skills for good. Many MBA programs are leading thought on specific topics ranging from social enterprise to energy, and there may be one that’s just what you’re looking for.
Look for new courses on these topics – If you’re looking for a program that’s constantly improving and responding to student needs, this is an important step. Look for courses highlighted as new in the latest course catalogue and Business as UNusual. We’ve seen great innovation from schools on the whole – 60% of respondents in the Business as UNusualall-member survey agreed that their programs were adequately preparing students for ethical or responsible leadership, compared to 43.7% in 2006.
3. Look into student activities – Student life is important in a well-rounded MBA experience, so find out what organizations exist on campus and get a sense of overall student culture. Check out Net Impact chapters’ Facebook pages to learn about events and activities going on at each campus.
4. Talk with other students – There’s no substitute for an insider’s perspective. Get in contact with a current student to hear first-hand what it’s like to attend each program.
5. Meet other students at a Net Impact event – Attend one of the many Net Impact events that you will find around the world.

You can find more information in the 2010 Business as UNusual guide, which provides a review of student activities, program strengths, and information on new courses and career services. Our largest guide to date reflects feedback from 3,000 students at 95 programs in the Net Impact network.
