외국 MBA 받고싶어요? Here is The Economist’s Global Ranking of MBA Programs

http://www.economist.com/node/17043164

Here is the list of top-ranked MBA programs according to The Economist.
My only comment about this list is that each school has relative strengths and weaknesses.  It is important to know these while applying to the particular school.  That does not mean that you need to fill your essays, and answers to interview questions with references to a program’s strengths.  THe reason for that is that the admissions committee usually look for a diverse set of students.  At this level, this is more likely to be the case than not.

Please keep this in mind, and please re-read my other posts on applying for an MBA for native Koreans.

Take Advantage of Reverse Discrimination During Interviews for an MBA

This is a very small, but potentially very important point.

When you are applying for an MBA to a US/European MBA program, a very important part of the application is the interview.  In Korea, what occurs is that a native Korean, an alumni, is usually assigned as the interviewer.  This should be avoided if possible.

Why is that? 

The reason:  Koreans are tougher on each other than foreigners, so if you are competent in English, then that will be a positive.  However, with a native Korean, it is more likely that the interview will occur in Korean, and the interview will be more difficult, and as a result, it is less likely that you will be recommended.  You should try to be interviewed by a native English, non-Korean interviewer.

So, if you are travelling to the US/Europe during the time of application, then you can contact the school, and try to arrange for an interview with a representative in the city to which you are travelling.  For example, if you visiting New York City for any reason, then it is very likely that there is an alumni representative already there who has been designated as a person to give interviews. 

It is actually a comment on Korean society, right?  Koreans do not want their own to attain the same level of education as they have, and as a result, put a HIGHER, more DIFFICULT level of excellence in mind when giving interviews.  As a result, if you interview in Korea, then it will actually be more difficult, not less.

It has been my experience that those students that I have advised receive better results this way.

This is just one small example of the MBA Application Consulting that I can provide to potential candidates. 
Here are the links to my advice, and services.
