Indian, Male, 28
GRE 315
Academics: Engineering 69%

Work Experience:

6 Years in a retail product company in India. I've started and built the Human Resource operations and functions in the company. I've got 3-4 Promotions and now a part of the senior management in the company. The company is on the verge of going Global in a years time.

Others: I've taken a lot of Business initiatives and demonstrated during the college. However, after I 've started working all my initiatives are confined to my workplace. Done quite a few certifications.

Why MBA
To learn, understand the organization from a Global perspective ideally to run a large corporate office of a global organization. I will be returning to the same company post MBA.

Since I've other debts I won't be able to afford an expensive MBA. Something around 30K $ after scholarships is my budget.

Which are the top schools which offer one year MBA with low fees which I can target?
Which are the schools where I can expect a generous scholarship?

Target Schools
NTU, NUS

Target Schools
NTU, NUS
First of all, it’s really hard for us to predict how scholarships will go, even if we work a lot with MBA candidates who do get offered scholarships in the end. But at ARINGO we always say that it’s very rare that a candidate can “count” on a scholarship, so to speak. So I really don’t want to speculate too much on the generosity of the schools when it comes to that.

But as for your other question, are you looking at business schools in the US or Europe? Or both?

You can see rankings of the top 1 year programs here: https://aringo.com/mba-1y-one-year-programs/

And I would recommend that you not only look at the cost of the tuition itself, but also at the Return of Investment, as choosing a higher ranked business school can often mean you get a higher salary after, thus making it easier to pay back that tuition faster. You can use the ARINGO ROI calculator in order to play around with the costs and salaries in order to see how that works. You’ll find it here:
https://aringo.com/mba-return-on-investment-roi-calculator/
But unfortunately it does not list 1 year options just yet.

As for a general idea of the differences in costs between different business schools, our MBA tuition calculator might be helpful too:
https://aringo.com/mba-cost-calculator/
But again, it does not list 1 year programs just yet, but it can help you see how big the differences we are talking about generally are.

If you are not interested in checking ROI and how much your salary might go up after an MBA, but are only after something affordable cost wise you might want to consider Texas A&M or Australian schools (due to the target schools you listed I figure that might be a more interesting geographical area for you compared to the US).

Hope that helps and good luck!
