Graduation in Business Management from Europe

Once 12th examinations are over, students and their parents are frantically going through the admission process, free seat, paid seat, with donation or without donation just grab it. More than 85% of the students are enrolled in bachelor degree program with majority enrolling in three year B.A, B.COM, BMS, BBA degrees. Nearly 47% graduates in India are unemployed. Why are these students unemployed? Its because the basic skills the employers look for are lacking; communication, teamwork, logical thinking, leadership, problem solving and experience of live projects, creativity. Unfortunately these skills are not taught as an important part of the curriculum in our academic years. They need to be acquired. Here most of our graduate students fail.

Are you worried that Indian system  will churn you out as another normal graduate of B.com, BMS, BBA?  This article will help you make a better career choice.

Yes, go abroad for higher studies.

With attractive tuition fees various funding and scholarship opportunities available; studying abroad is possible. 

A degree from India and a degree from abroad have a huge difference. If you graduate from a college in Europe, you will stand out from other job candidates with the skills that can be only gained through international experience. Additionally, if you study in a country with an emerging economy, you will be able to respond quickly to an evolving market or industry.

UK vs US
UK and US provide a great business education, each system approaches education differently, and there are advantages and disadvantages to each. You should take into consideration the various differences mentioned in this article, especially the amount of time it takes to finish the degree and whether you want more depth or more breadth in your degree programme.

Canada
Canada is  good for international education. Canada is easier to get into terms of post qualification work Visa. Some universities in Canada are really good for computer science. Ever since Trump made clear his intentions with regard to visa policy for immigrants, the number of international students, especially those that follow Islam, have been understandably dropping. These unfriendly policies have definitely impacted Indian students as well. Irrespective of what religion they follow, the number of Indian students wanting to study in the US has been adversely affected. However, students who stand to face the most difficulties as a result of these visa policies are those who plan to attend lower tier universities, those applying for non-STEM programs, those who ultimately hope to immigrate to the US, and those relying on an education loan and hope to pay back the loan by getting a job in the US post graduation. Hence US is not considered as a good option to study in anymore.

EUROPE
Europe is now a coveted destination for international students.
Imagine the opportunity of studying in France, Germany, Netherland, Spain or Italy.  Even your weekend trips become exponentially better. You get to see the Eiffel Tower or go backpacking in Spain.
So if you are absolutely keen on getting a degree in one of the most renowned colleges and places in Europe, here are pointers that would help you to choose your study abroad destination along with the courses, procedure and other important pointers, step by step.

1. Admission Process and Eligibility:
Most universities have their own selection criteria most of them accept either IELTS or TOEFL.

International courses in Europe: 100% English taught.
For European nations, each country has own selection criteria. To do an “international course” taught in English , you would still have to get the desired score in IELTS/TOEFL along with other tests depending on your course selection and the country’s requirements. Selected Universities Germany, Netherlands, Spain and France offer undergraduate and post grad courses taught in English in disciplines like Business Management, However they may not offer  every course in English, so you need to choose your subjects carefully.

2. Tuition and Living cost:
Compared with cost of education in our country, International education isn’t cheap – it’s expensive. Budget might be on the higher side depending on the location.

Europe is considerably cheaper than US or UK. Germany France, Spain and Netherlands has the lowest fees among all the top study abroad destinations. The average tuition fees for non-EU students studying a Bachelor’s in Business Management programme is between 6,000 – 12,000 EUR per year, while for a Master’s programme, these range between 8,000 – 20,000 EUR per year. Even though Italy has some of the oldest universities in the world, it is also one of the cheapest places to study. This of course, is just the fees. You basic necessities and other wants and needs aside may amount to about Euro 650/- per month.

3. College & Courses & Rankings:
Ranking of top 10 universities for Business Management.
Many other European nations were also ranked in this list. For example ETH Zurich Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich in Switzerland was 16th on the Times list, Delft University of Technology in Netherlands was 42nd and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen in Germany was 46th in the list.

What is important to know is that the average German or French school has a high standard of education than an average in many other countries. While top ranked UK and US Universities are great brand names, most Universities ranked below 250 in world rankings do not give such great value for money as the German, Dutch or French Universities.

4. Culture:
Keeping in mind that Europe itself has a wide range of cultures. No two countries are the same. Germany, Holland, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and many more the cultures are earth apart. Yes, Europe and US both belong to the Western Civilization. But there is a lot of difference among all of them.
As an international student from Asia, you would find these locations fascinating. Any country you choose to study in, would give you the opportunity to learn and understand different cultures.

5. Internships, Job Placements and work visa
While Europeans consider themselves to be more sophisticated and deeply involved in their own culture, they have also been offering a liberal work visa regime for international students. Germany offers a 18 month work visa. Netherlands allows you a 12 months work visa after a professional study course.

Most of the business schools will offer you internships through their career cells. After graduation you are very likely to get placed within the next few months. Remember the work visa allows you to stay back for 12 to 18 months depending upon the country in Europe.

Once you do find a suitable job and an employer you get a Blue Card which allows you to stay on for 5 years and work in your chosen field.

Working knowledge of the local language. Is a must  to get a good job in a multinational company, Though it is not compulsory for admission.  So you have 3 years to brush up on your German, Dutch, Spanish or French.

Sadly the UK education seems to be at the biggest loss, being less favoured by international students due to the strict post study visa regime. Most of the students who cannot get a sponsor must return to India after their graduation or Masters.

6. Language Barriers:
Even though there are international courses in Arts, Humanities, Management at Bachelor or Masters level, you still need to learn the national language like German or French to get a job in the same country, Now, most European countries are accepting TOEFL and IELTS score.
5. Three year vs a Four year graduation:
Europe has a similar 3 years of undergraduate studies, for moist universities offering business management.
