Top MBA myths students fall for every year

edwise-logo

December 2018

As you gear up for an exciting admission tour this season, we bring to you some known and unknown facts! Looks like,MBA really is a one-way ticket to the land of money, happiness and career satisfaction.Some urban legends never die. But MBA myths are even harder to digest. A million coaching centres, lakhs of websites and thousands of colleges are trying to sell you the MBA dream. And then there is the world – your lovely folks, nosey friends, and then your family.This could be the most shady part of your MBA.

Study Abroad

But is MBA worth all the anxiety?

For that, you need better access to recruiters.MBA does not guarantee a new career. It just gives a better direction to your present career. Aspirants often think that after B-school, they’ll come up with innovative solutions and drive the organisation to Success. Firms worth thousands of crores are not sitting hawk-eyed, dying to tap an MBA graduate so that they can drive them out of red. They have several think-pools who can maximize profits. And an MBA grad is just a small fish among those big think-pools.

So if you are an IT professional or a website designer, an MBA will not secure a career in finance or marketing.This myth surfaced a few years ago and really took off when business schools started accepting both GRE and GMAT scores for the application process. It stemmed from the fact that only the average GMAT score was reported by the ranking institutions, whereas the average GRE score generally remained unpublished. The placement teams have power to decide on placement activities, maintaining relations and communication with companies, and nobody can question what they do.

Be careful.Looking at the questions broadly it may seem most schools are asking the same question, but when read in detail the expectation in the answers differ from school to school. For example, one school expects you to focus more on why you want an MBA, while other school would like to know why are you applying to that school specifically. Another example: one school would like you to focus on describing a success or failure while the other school will require you to focus on what you learnt from that success or failure.

Minor differences in the wording of questions completely change the scope of the answers.Business schools are interested in an overall evaluation of your skill set, be it via the GRE or GMAT; there is no difference in how they consider the test results of either format. Plus, if you have already invested time in studying for the GMAT, it is best to double-down on that same test rather than switching to another format and content type. Most likely, you will do better by going deeper on the same test. Writing essay for one school and re-using it in other school’s essays is perfectly fine.Not wise.

The process is so secretive that placement team members are not allowed to even talk about anything remotely related to placements with anyone.A little background on placement teams in MBA institutes. Like in every top college, placements don’t come under the responsibilities of professors. They simply don’t care. The deans and all do care because they want good placement so as to keep the rankings high. So, the placements come under a placement professor and a placement team – a group of 10 students selected/ elected from current MBA students. The selection/ election criteria is different for different institutes. In some institutes one team takes care of each placement session for two years and in others different placement teams are selected/elected to take care of different placement sessions.

Pre Departure Aspects To Consider Before Flying Abroad

edwise-logo

November 2018

You have come a long way in this admission process. It’s finally the time to follow the given below pre departure guidelines and fly off to the foreign land to accomplish your dreams.

Study Abroad

Here are a few essentials to be carried out :

  • Detailed Study of The Necessaries :

After receiving the acceptance letter from the university regarding your admission, start doing in-depth research about the city, its life, cafes, restaurants, stores, etc. available in and around the university and the location of your housing. Try to find out how the local life is out there. Make sure you are aware of the basic laws, rules and regulations (of what is acceptable and unacceptable). Carrying out such a research will help you to be little comfortable in a new place and make things easier for you.

Culture Shock is something that is experienced by most of the students. One experiences emotional as well as physical discomfort due to new place, people, way of living, language, etc. Hence it is very important to understand the various cultural norms, language, eating habits and many such similar things of the country you are heading to.

  • Arrange Funds/Finances :

After receiving a confirmation letter from the university, make sure that you plan and arrange for various costs like the tuition fees, living cost, and miscellaneous costs. Arrange for the funds, keeping in mind the location of your university as it plays a major role in estimating your total living cost. Plan and maintain a budget which will enable you to smoothly manage your expenses, after you start living abroad.

  • Visa Application :

Once you have done your research and made sure of having sufficient finances for studying abroad, you must now apply for a visa by following the correct procedure as guided by your counselor. Make your visa application only after you receive admission confirmation letter from the university.

  • Confirm Flight :

Do not be surprised if you are not getting to book the flight ticket and plus the one of your choice. This time of the year is busiest as not only students but also other visitors and tourists fly abroad. In such a case ask your travel agent to book the ticket for you well in advance. Along with booking the ticket, also find the best, speedy and convenient ways to reach your university.

  • Confirm Accommodation :

It is mandatory to confirm your accommodation within the stipulated time/date failing which, you will be left with no place to stay in campus or won’t have an option to make a choice between accommodations available. If you choose to stay off-campus, make sure you find out proper details related to your housing location.

  • Value Added Services :

Securing yourself with other important aspects such as the use of currency, insurance, international communication services, etc. is extremely important. We at Edwise International provide students with these services. Few of our major services include :

  • Services related to forex
  • Student’s travel insurance, medical insurance, loss and accident insurance
  • Excellent deals on booking of air tickets
  • International telecom services
  • Heath Check Up :

Get a health check-up done before you fly abroad. The university requires you to be immune against diseases like mumps, measles, tetanus, meningitis, etc. Make sure to carry your health reports, i.e. the proof of immunization with you.

  • Shopping :

Once you have been granted a visa, your study abroad plan gets an official approval stamp. This is when you start shopping for the necessary items. Make a list of all the things you need to buy and pack. Follow the list and shop all that you will need on a foreign land. Buy clothes, foot wear, leather and other such similar things, as these are expensive abroad.

  • Packing :

After you get all the things in place, start putting them in your bag. Start packing at least a week before the date of taking off. Make a checklist to ensure you don’t leave anything behind.

  • Crucial Documents and papers :
  • Copy of I-20
  • Passport
  • Financial Documents (CA Certificates, Bank Statements)
  • Admission letter
  • Affidavit of sponsor
  • Tuition fees and Accommodation receipts
  • Medical Reports
  • Tickets
  • Address book (India and selected country)
  • Insurance documents
  • Contact details of final destination
  • Emergency Plan :

Always make sure to keep, the important contact details of people you can contact during an emergency, handy. Make sure you have exchanged contact details with your classmates, roommates, university, faculty, etc. Also make sure that you leave a list of contacts back at home (India) which will have details of where your family/parents can find and contact you. In order to keep your parents from worrying about your whereabouts, make sure you plan out the time and ways of contacting them. Once you land in foreign country, immediately inform your parents about the same. Additionally, keep the number of your bank with you to resolve problems like stolen or misplaced cards. Make sure you know the emergency numbers of the country (e.g. 911).

On the coming 1st of December, 2018, Edwise International is organizing a Pre Departure Event to guide its students on various aspects related to pre departure and the tasks students need to fulfill before departing to their respective study abroad countries. To get a deep insight on the same, kindly attend the event by getting in touch with Edwise counselors.

Scored Low In Your Board Exams? It’s Not The End Of The World

edwise-logo

November 2018

Have you ever scored low in any of your board exam and immediately saw your world coming crashing down? If yes, then you should definitely continue reading this. Even if quotes like “Failure is the stepping stone to success” or “Even the word Impossible has ‘I’ ‘am’ possible in it” or “We learn from failure not from success” etc might sound cliche, they still hold immense accuracy and relevance.

In the contemporary world, a lot of new careers and professions have come into existence. Each of these careers and professions require and demand specific kind of qualifications which are offered by educational institutions worldwide.

In order to lead a luxurious, lavish and most importantly a secured life, the demand for rich quality education has reached its highest peak. Every young individual today strives to get into a topmost university to gain the best education.To reach to this level, one has to surpass numerous challenges. The most important challenge one has to face is to secure high scores.

Don’t let low scores come in the way of your dreams. The youth today has variety of options. Field of study is no more narrow.

There are various options you can look at:

Study in Abroad

  • Pleathora of Courses:

With courses available for all fields, you can choose any one which best suits your interest. Courses like Fashion Designing, Music, Photography, Acting and Theatre, Mass Communication and Media, etc can be considered.

  • Entrance Exam Based Courses:

There are many courses that require one to give entrance exams. Such courses do not give much prominence to the grades you have scored in your past examinations. One’s application in such courses is purely based on how one performs in the entrance test. Courses such as Design, Management, Mass Media Communication, Journalism, Law, etc are all entrance exam based courses. Thus dont bother yourself with unnecessary stress.

  • Join a Community College:

Community colleges are higher education institutions that offer diploma and transfer degree courses of short duration. Usually of two years. Low scores dont matter much as they readily admit students with low GPA. The reason for this is because, pursuing a course from a community college is just a kick start to your higher education.

  • Engage in Extra-curricular Activities:

Specialising in extra curricular activies like sports, music, arts and theatre, dance, etc increases your chances of getting admitted into the desired college and university. Working for a reputed club or organisation or even starting with a business of your own can get one shortlisted.

  • Ask for Recommendation:

This is one of the smartest way one can adopt in order to increase the chances of getting admitted. Ask your school and college teachers, your coach, work colleague, and your boss to draft letters of recommendation for you. Their words might speak louder than your scores.

  • Powerful Statement of Purpose:

Its an essay that gives you a chance to write and explain in detail about yourself and about your dreams and aspirations. Through this essay you can try your level best to convince the admission committee why you should be and are apt to be admitted to the university, irrespective of your low grades. How you tell your story holds the power to change the admission officer’s mind and make him/her consider your application.

  • Don’t Restrict Your Thoughts:

Universities in different countries offer different courses. Dont restrict your research only till well known countries and university/colleges. Try looking out for next best institutions. Not getting into a reputed college doesnt mean that there are no other ways of succeeding. Very often, the less known educational institutes offer the best quality education. Hence, do an indepth research.

  • Career counseling:

Things clearly haven’t worked out for you due to low scores. Your old plan has gone for a toss. This might leave you in the midddle of nowhere. If this has happened, then there is no need to worry. You can always seek help from a counselor. A counselor acts like a fire brigade who comes to your rescue. Consult him/her and get the right guidance.

Top 5 Reasons to Study in the UK

edwise-logo

November 2018

From being the land of the British Empire to the land of one of the highest numbers of inventions, The United Kingdom has come a long way. It is currently the 8th largest economy in terms of (PPP) purchasing power parity, contributing majorly to the global economy.

United Kingdom due to its abundance of rich knowledge is a home to inventions such as the steam engine, telephone, photography, passenger railway, and also the World Wide Web. As interesting as this sounds, it is even more enthralling to know that greatest personalities of all times like Isaac Newton (greatest scientist who developed theories like gravity), William Shakespeare (father of English literature), Stephen Hawking (a scientist born in Oxford itself, who developed theories around black holes, stars, and universe), J.K. Rowling (author of the very famous Harry Potter series), Tim Berners-Lee (inventor of the World Wide Web), and so many more hail from this kingdom.

Considering this, why should any person aspiring to pursue higher education from abroad not think of studying in the UK?

Still if you require more concrete reasons to study in the United Kingdom; mentioned below are few crucial reasons to look at:

Study in UK

  • World’s Best Universities:

The world’s most well-known universities, the University of Oxford and Cambridge resides in here. This just proves the quality of education UK offers to its students. The popular publications of university rankings like Times’ Higher Education Rankings and QS World Rankings always rank the universities of UK in the top 10 universities of the world due to their academic reputation. Not only is UK a home to world’s best universities but it also offers certificates degrees and qualifications which are internationally recognized. A degree from UK creates a great impression and reputation of you on the recruiters. Thus studying in UK adds a great value to your future as well as life.

  • Affordable Destination to Study:

Even though UK might sounds like an expensive destination to study in, it is really not.

The scholarships and bursaries offered by the institutions make education affordable. One of the major reasons why UK is a cheap and affordable destination as compared to other countries is because it offers short duration courses (3 years of under-graduate program and 1year for a master’s degree). Furthermore, student discount facilities are also provided through National Union of Students.

  • Large Student Population:

UK from many other countries is the most attractive and favored study destination among students from across the globe. Every year the number of students entering the nation is increasing rapidly. Currently there are half a million international students studying in the UK. Studying along with people of different nations exposes one to a number of cultures, ideas and opinions which further expands the individual’s capacity of understanding and sharpens one’s thought processes.

  • Work Opportunity While Studying:

Institutions of UK allow students to work part time for 20 hours a week during term time and full time during vacation. This enables students to gain hands on industry experience. Students can earn around £5 – £7 per hour i.e. approximately £375 – £525 per month during the term.

  • Free Healthcare During the Course of Your Education / Program:

If the duration of your course is of more than 6 months, you are entitled to the NHS (National Health Service, a publicly funded national healthcare system). As per the NHS, if any medical emergency or for that matter even a requirement arises, one does not have to worry about the financial aspect. Under this service, everything related to your health is taking care of.

To provide you with more in-depth information about what UK has to offer to international students, we at Edwise International are bringing to you the International Education Exhibition from 23rd November – 3rd December, 2018 across various cities of India, where you can interact with the university representatives and get your questions answered.

Many universities offer on-campus housing facilities in areas within the universities which become like a small town on their own. US universities also have dormitories where students can reside. Here students can also meet other students and engage themselves in activities. For off-campus housing, the off-campus housing office will help you find an apartment. You can also ask your friends if they have any suggestions or can also take help of the real estate agents. If you are not comfortable to stay alone then the option of homestay is always open.

  • Safety:

The USA is a safe nation to study in with its law and regulations well in place. Still, one should be alert and careful. One must have a vigilant eye capable enough to suspect the wrong activities happening around, and also take proper care of your belongings. Surround yourself with people who you can count as trustworthy. One most important thing one must do before leaving to study in the US is to a detailed research about the campus and residence life of the university you have opted for.

  • Food / Cuisines:

American food has spread all over the world. USA is the land that serves one of the most delicious dishes in the world. Hence it is very less likely for one to go to sleep empty stomach.

  • Expenses:

Without any doubt, quality education in the US is expensive but the investment one makes now is sure to give higher returns in the future. Nevertheless, plan your expenses strategically. Cut down the cost where it is possible. Do not carry large amount of cash and try to keep transactions as digital as possible.

5 Things to Keep in Mind When Choosing an Overseas Education

edwise-logo

November 2018

Studying abroad need not have to be expensive, especially when you know what you’re dealing with upfront. Apart from asking yourself where you want to go and how much will it cost you, here’s everything you need to consider for an overseas education.

Study in Abroad

  • Program

While choosing a program is a relatively easy task for most candidates, there are still others that face a great deal of difficulty in choosing the right program. There are several factors that can help one decide on a program such as the cost, length of program and credits you wish to earn. Additionally, understanding the skills you will gain from a particular program is equally important.

  • Country

Country selection is another important aspect when considering an overseas degree. Ask yourself where is it that you really wish to study? Would you rather experience snowy winters or cool and breezy summers. All of this will add perspective to your country choice and preference.

  • Housing

Housing can play a critical role in promoting or hindering your cultural immersion.You want to find a place that is not just afforable, but one that is liveable too. Start looking for housing options as soon as you have confirmed your study destination. Speak to past veterans on living options, and choose an accomodation that will help you get the most out of your study abroad experience.

  • Cost

The cost of studying abroad varies depending on the duration of the program, location and other miscellaneous course fees. However, there is a program out there to meet every budget. More so, there are also a variety of scholarships and bursaries available to help offset costs, thereby making an education overseas both cost-effective and reasonable. When looking for funding, start early and seek assistance from multiple sources.

  • Cultural Sensitivity

Studying abroad is the ability to function within another culture. While it is important that you understand and follow the cultural norms of society, it is also important that you are respectful and sensitive toward the country you will be living in.
