A dream institute

Enrolling in the HEC MBA was by far the best decision I made for myself. The people and faculty are great, with lots of opportunities to meet people and expand your horizons. Very nice campus where I have had some good running sessions.
The alumni network is superb and very helpful. It also has a good support system for entrepreneurs. Would definitely recommend it!

Oxford - not only a place to study!

I was for a one year MBA at the SBS Business School in Oxford.
Of course the program was top (as one can also see from the MBA rankings).
But on top being part of a College (Magdalen) and the overall community (Oxford Union, Oxford Wine Circle, …) added much more. Truly one of the best years in my life!
