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.

 

Hult International Business school has multiple campuses all over the world including Boston, Shanghai, London, Dubai and San Francisco (ranked 1st in international experience by The Financial Times).

 

Having a master's degree in the US takes 2 years and the cost doubles, whereas Hult master’s degrees in London only take a year to complete. As I compared the costs of some of my favourite picks, Hult didn't look so bad. Another point was the return I would get on this money as I checked their 1st year graduate employment rate was really high.

 

 

My classes offered me the technical and practical skills I needed in the business world. In the first month of the degree, we had the toolbox with basic classes such as accounting, economics and business math for a smoother adaptation to our course 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 range 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, the friendships I formed with people from more than 80 countries and lectures I attended with amazing professors. The thing I liked most about the program was the class setting and the teaching method. The course 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 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 my 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 weren’t very pleasing.

 

In the end, I am very happy with my decision of studying at business 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 and formed many great relationships on a global scale.'
