The definition of Ivy League Schools was meant originally for eight eminent and notable universities whose red brick buildings were covered with Ivy! However, while this may or may not true today, what does define an Ivy League Institution better is one that has had an exceptional track record of scholastic achievement and social prestige.

Canada has been reporting highly elevated numbers as far as business school applicants are concerned. While the spike first began right after the US elections in 2016, web traffic and applications to some business schools in Canada have seen an actual 20% jump since then. Some of the countries that people come from include Nigeria, India, Saudi Arabia, China, France and USA. However, if they will have to compete with schools in the US or other parts of the world, Canadian business schools will have to up the ante when it comes to scholarships and fellowships being offered as this is one of the things that will make the programs attractive for applicants from developing countries such as Africa..MBA scholarships

The price of an MBA degree has risen sharply by over 75% in the last decade or so (the average tuition fee of the top 25 business schools for the year 2017 was approximately $ 115,000 and this is over 80% higher since 2008).

The brightest star in the financial job space is that of an investment banker. World famous names of deal makers like Gary Cohn (Goldman Sachs group), Blythe Masters (J.P.Morgan), Kenichi Watanabe (Nomura Holdings) or even Anshul Jain (Deutsche bank) have made their marks through astute deals and decision making. Investment banking brings images of a plush, corner office of a high rise at a posh office location where the banker is surrounded by smart, A-listers from various companies and other banks.

Your career is a defining factor of your life. It has a spiraling effect on your state of mind, your relationships with your peers or at home. A fruitful career is a big aspect of your life as 40-50% of your lifetime will be spent on working in an office. You can be highly talented, have a competent expertise of your domain but a lack of guidance or a specialized support in finding what’s best for you and your future could result in stagnancy. This is where programs such as the EMBA at London Business School can help, especially for those professionals who are now in middle management, or have too much experience to get into a full-time MBA program..Executive MBA
