Hi friends, I am starting a new thread for the aspirants, seeking for admissions in the Internationally recognised, Top 2-Tier B-Schools in UK, the Stathclyde, Durham, Leeds, Bradford, Aston, Bath, Edinburgh, etc. There have been some useful threads in PG, for these B-schools, in the previous years. This forum might give us, an opportunity and a great platform, to discuss the application, interview, admissions, scholarships, loans & further joining these reputed B-schools. I welcome all the fellow PGs, aspirants and the current students/alumni to share there experiences and guide us to get admission into these ranked Global MBA pragrams. Cheers :thumbsup: Saurabh.

hi sumit n all,i wanted to ask you about the undergraduate program that hult offers i.e B.I.B.A (bachelors in international business administration).....
-do they have any placement?
(i saw there brocher but they have not mentioned clearly about the placements, its just written hults graduates work in this andn this companies.....)
Moreover the college in which i study (first year bba in mumbai) offers me a program i.e to study in mumbai for 2years and then i ll b transferred to hult international business school, London for 1year where i ll complete my bachelors and get a degree of B.I.B.A.
-my question is...
-do hults, london have placements for bachelors graduates?
-the main reason, why i am confused is... i have heard that international students are not allowed to work in uk after there studies, if the program ends before 11 months. So is that true?
-And i even came to know that there is recession going on in uk..... So please can you tell me is it true??
........last but not the least..... talking about my financial condition, my dad is going to finance my studies,so if i go for this program, (cost $23000) at the end of my graduation my dad ll b having no money to finance my masters (MBA), for which its very essential for me to work and earn for my masters......
-So please any one guide me whether to go for this scheme in such conditions (if true) or shall i reserve my money for my masters and get a bachelors degree of mumbai university??
