Why You Should Consider Studying in Europe
With a long tradition of outstanding higher education, studying in Europe has great appeal and offers life-changing professional and personal development.
The European Union alone is made up of 28 member states and boasts 24 official languages, so students get a true international experience in terms of cultural diversity, the richness of languages, and the complexities of different economies.
When it comes to graduate business education, Europe benefits from having the most prestigious and top-ranked business schools and universities in the world.
Popular European destinations for business master’s and MBA programs include the United Kingdom, France, and Spain, where some of the most esteemed schools are located. More recently, programs located in countries such as Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands are moving up the ranks.
Having a business master’s or MBA degree can help you differentiate yourself from others competing for the same jobs. Not surprisingly, it’s typical for European business schools to expect students to learn a second language during their studies, and many offer interesting business specializations such as fashion or even wine trading as well as the more traditional subjects like finance, marketing, and entrepreneurship.
