ou are on the cusp of your professional career. You have decided that you need to do an MBA programme because without it, your career will languish. With it, you could achieve the success that you deserve. Now that the decision is taken, how are you going to choose the MBA programme that is the right fit for you? A stable economy is an essential criterion of where to pursue this MBA. A stable economy provides an environment which is filled with sound business sense and infrastructure. Singapore would be an ideal location as it has a stable economy, globally strategic location and has the presence of industry giants. Once the location has been identified, the very first criterion that has the top-most priority, is the accreditation of the business school. If the accreditation of the school is imperfect, at the end of the course you will have a less than perfect degree. The MBA, University of Bradford at Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS) is, for instance, triple accredited. Out of the more than 13,000 schools offering business programmes in the world, only 58 schools have this triple accreditation and that immediately places you in a very exclusive group around the world. Academic delivery should be the next salient feature that you need to look out for. MDIS has a distinguished roster of lecturers who are academically qualified and will challenge you intellectually with their learning. MDIS also has a line-up of lecturers from industry who will bring you up-close to what is happening every day in the corporate world in marketing, in finance, in HR, in every crucial aspect of management. When it comes to your education, always look for an institution that has rock-solid roots. Educational institutions, that are of long-standing and have established themselves over the years, will never let you down (unlike fly-by-night operators who are yet to prove themselves). MDIS was established in 1956; it has been part of the educational landscape now for many decades. It is the oldest not-for-profit private professional institute for life-long learning in Singapore.
