'Studying at Hult International Business School in London opened up many doors for me as the international environment, experience and a global network helped me get to my dream place.
Close to the completion of my undergraduate degree, I knew that I wanted to further my studies with a master's degree abroad in Business. I was especially interested in International Business and as I started looking for the right degree program, I found about Hult.
The school has multiple campuses all over the world including Boston, Shanghai, London, Dubai and San Francisco. (Ranked 1st in international experience by Financial Times as you can rotate campuses) Master of International Business was offered in London and I had to consider the cost of the program.
Having a master's degree in the US takes 2 years and the cost doubles as Hult master degree in London would only take a year to complete. As I compared the costs of some of my favourite picks, Hult didn't look so bad at the end. Another point was the return I would get on this money as I checked their 1st year graduate employment rate was really high.
The classes offered by Hult offered me the technical and the practical skills I need in the business world. In the first month of the degree, we had the toolbox with basic classes such as Accounting, Economics, Business Math for a smoother adaptation to our degree courses ahead. The year was divided into 4 modules and the first module contained International Accounting, Finance, Marketing and Global Management. In Module B, we took Global Operations, Consulting Methods, Leadership, Global Citizenship, IT, Global Strategy classes. In the last two modules, we could take elective classes from a wide arrange of courses available, we also had an interactive business strategy game where we had to run virtual companies.
Overall I was very satisfied in terms of what I have learnt from the courses that I took, friendships and relationships I formed with people from more than 80 countries, lectures I attended with amazing professors who are also leaders in their fields. The thing I liked most about the program was the class setting and the teaching method; it was highly practical and most of our homework, projects and even tests contained group work, presentations and discussions which taught me the practical skills I need to actually be a successful business woman/manager in the future.
As I had studied in a huge campus in my undergraduate years, I wasn't fully satisfied by Hult's campus in London. It is understandable that the campuses would be small and limited in a big city but the career services and social clubs in the campus wasn't very pleasing.
In the end, I am very happy with my decision of studying at HIBS in London as I have gained an international perspective on the business subjects that I studied, learned the practical and technical skills I would need in my career path and formed many great relationships and a global network.'
