Dear Sir, This is Suresh and have done my masters in software engineering. Currently residing in India with more than 2.5 years of IT experience. I am planning to do an MBA abroad and I have shortlisted University of Wollongong Dubai and PSB academy Singapore (MBA - University of Newcastle). I have my friend who can help for my accommodation in Singapore but in Dubai I don’t have much of support but many are telling I can get a part time job as my course timing is from 06- 10 pm. And Also PSB MBA is just one year course. Please help me in selecting which one is good in terms of my future career, job prospectus and degree value. Thanks & Regards, Suresh Kumar P

Dear Suresh, since you have chosen Singapore - according to the government you are not suppose to do your part time job when your in student visa. But once you complete your degree and get the university degree certificate along with an offer letter you may apply for your 2 years work permit (later then 2 years PR). But when you plan to go for Dubai, you may not able to stay for a long - rather you can work and come back to India. 

If you graduate in Singapore and get UK university degree. You can directly apply for UK universities and get the certificate which is for 1 year course with part time job. After completion of your degree you can extend 2 years work permit with a job offer letter. 

When compared to dubai, singapore will be the good option.

Hi, PSB's Newcastle MBA has an internship as well for up to 6 months in good MNC's and SME's. Wollongong MBA is also very good and sucess rate for jobs in Dubai is quite high. Newcastle is ranked inside the Top 200  and Wollongong just outside 200 and not much of a difference between them. 

But as rightly researched by you, you can find a Full time work in Dubai while studying and several of my students who have gone to Dubai are working and studying at the same time. 

Dubai and Singapore are both strong economies and jobs are never a problem in both places. I guess it is a very difficult choice and seek help of a Professional education counsellor.

Dear Sir,

This is Trang Nguyen from Vietnam. I plan for my son to get a Bachelor Degree in Information Technology in Singapore. We have shortlisted UNISIM - University of Wollongong and PSB academy Singapore - University of Newcastle). Please help me in selecting which one is good in terms of his future career, job prospectus and degree value. My son does not really like Business Information Technology. He prefers Game Design. I plan for him to get a Game Design Certificate/Degree after graduation from B.S. in IT.
