Indian MBA vs US MBA: Which is More Value For Money?

 

Indian MBA vs US MBAMost Indian MBA aspirants have this question in their mind – Should I do my MBA from an Indian business school or do I look for MBA programs abroad in the USA or Europe. This article helps you understand the pros and cons of an Indian MBA vs US MBA and decide which MBA degree will be better for you based on your long terms goal, and lastly which will provide a better ROI.

Foreign MBA

An MBA from a foreign university is very helpful in understanding business from an international perspective. This is very advantageous if you want to work abroad after your graduation.

Most foreign b-schools tend to have a large diversity in their student class so you benefit from understanding different cultural viewpoints and perspectives. Foreign MBA colleges will also have better infrastructure and better professors.

The post-degree pay package of an US or European MBA will be higher than an Indian MBA because of the currency difference. However, a foreign MBA is also more expensive and it may take more time to recover the fees of the business degree, especially if you are opting for a US MBA.

More importantly, the Indian market functions very differently than the US and European markets, hence the things you will learn in a foreign B-School will be less applicable to India. Hence, if you want to work in India after your MBA, a foreign MBA is less preferable.

Indian MBA

An Indian MBA will help you gain business related knowledge pertinent to the Indian market. An Indian MBA will be significantly cheaper and you will be able to pay back your student loan much faster. If you wish to work in India after your degree, this is preferred from both knowledge as well as economic perspectives.

Around 70% of the curriculum in an Indian MBA degree course will be common to its foreign counterparts, however, the way the curriculum is delivered and the facilities to support learning will be below par (unless you are at one of the IIMs).

The post-degree salary of an Indian MBA will be lower than an US MBA. Also, if you wish to work abroad, an Indian MBA will be disadvantageous since they would prefer students from their own B-Schools.

Other Factors in Choosing Location for your MBA degree

The ranking of the colleges you are targeting will also influence your decision. If you are looking at the top-ranked US colleges like Harvard, Wharton, Stanford or EU colleges like London Business School, INSEAD, then these are the best options and you will be considered as one of the best in the world.

If you have to choose between a top 10 international b-school vs a top 10 Indian b-school, then a top 10 international school will be a better choice.

If you have to choose between a top 10 Indian b-school like one of the IIMs vs a medium tier US / EU b-school, then an IIM will be a better option.

If you wish to choose between an average Indian MBA degree and an average foreign MBA, then you need to make a choice based on the points above like MBA fees, preferred country of work and post-MBA salary.

Summary

In summary, you need to first list out your key criteria in terms of career plan, budget, the country where you want to stay etc and prioritize them. Once you do that, deciding whether you should do an MBA in USA (abroad) or in India will be an easier task.

You can take the MBA Location Preference Calculator Quiz below to determine whether an MBA abroad or an MBA in India is a better option for you.

      If you wish to work in India after your graduation, then it is preferable to do your MBA from India as Indian colleges teach you business courses in a perspective relevant to the Indian market. This is a major factor since the markets in India and the US are very very different. This is provided that you are getting into a top India college (Tier 1 or Tier 2). Refer to the MBA Rankings in India for top Indian colleges.

      Hi Admin,

      I am an IT professional with more than 4 yrs of experience. I want to re-skill myself. My future plans are working in India for few years post MBA and then start something of my own. Could you suggest me whether I should go for a 1 year exec MBA program or a 2 years full time MBA program. What I have learnt from my friends who are currently studying in top/tier-1 Indian B-Schools is that having more experience in IT industry is disadvantageous and reduces your chances to be picked up/considered by top recruiters from other industries. Post MBA I would want to get into Operations/ Marketing. I have no interest in consultancy and do not want to go back to IT. I have a keen interest in e-commerce/ FMCG industry. Please keep all these in mind while suggesting.

        Hi Shegufta,
        If you are looking to join an MBA course primarily to re-skill yourself, then I would recommend that you do a two year full time MBA course over an accelerated 1 year exec MBA. Your friends are correct. Recruiters usually prefer either freshers or those who already have relevant experience in that domain / industry. That said, there are enough examples of people successfully changing career tracks inspite of this limitation. Top tier colleges allow the opportunity to do projects and take part in relevant competitions so as to show recruiters your keen interest in a particular area. That said, they can still not take you in at a mid or senior position simply because you will not be able to succeed in that position without relevant experience. As a career changer, you will need to make a compromise somewhere. New age e-commerce firms like commonfloor.com and Ola are making exceptions to this rule – they do pick up ex-IT guys for Marketing and Operations role. If you are willing to work hard during your course in skilling yourself in those domains and are okay with the compromises or willing to join new age tech startups, then go in for the two year MBA program. Good luck with your decision.

      Hi Preethi,

      Your best chances of getting a job in the USA are by joining a multi-national company in India, consistently performing well for 2-3 years and then requesting for a intra-company transfer to the US. It is usually easier for engineers to get US jobs as compared to non-tech profiles.

      Hi Jatin,

      Research experience usually doesn’t count as valid work experience. It will help your chances if the research is in the field of business. If it is in the field of science or engineering, then it actually reduces your chances of an admission as you may have a tough time convincing US business schools about your career objectives.

      US B-Schools usually give more importance to your work experience than academic scores. If you have strong and relevant work experience (in any business field), then you have a good shot at getting admission in a US School. Your high GMAT score of 780 will also tilt the balance in your favor.

      Your success rate here depends a lot on the Tier of the college you graduated from. See Indian MBA Rankings. If you graduated from a top tier college – you can try to get into international marketing roles in MNCs and after a year or two switch to an international (US) location. If you graduated from a middle or lower Tier college, then you will need to join an Indian or US-based MNC and the bottom and work your way upwards for 3-5 years till you can ask for an international posting.

      Yes, you will be able to return to India to a good job in a US-based or multi-national company after 2-3 years. However, you need to consider the fact that HR jobs in India do not pay well so monetarily that may not be a very good option.

    1. admin Post author

      The probability of getting a job in India after a US MBA and US work experience is very good given the number of US-based companies which are operating in India. The probability will also depend on the field in which you do MBA and the kind of work experience you have in the US. However, you may not be able to pay off your loan or recover the fees in a US MBA program by just working for a couple of years so you may need to work there for 3-4 years before coming back.

      Hi Rohit. If you do your full-time MBA from a middle tier US B-School, you could get a starting salary of 15-20 lakhs per annum in India. For middle tier UK B-Schools, the starting salary would be between 10-12 lakhs per annum. US B-Schools have a much better reputation in India than UK B-Schools.

      Hi Pratik – India has a very different way of doing business as compared to the western world. If you want to learn the way business is done in India and have no prior experience in India, then I would recommend doing an MBA from India and doing a job in India post that. This is assuming that you will start a new business.
      If you will be joining an existing family business, then you are better off getting a foreign MBA as you will be able to bring in new ideas to your existing business while still having your family teach you the rules of business in India.
      If you definitely want a job abroad post your MBA for a few years, then go for the foreign school as getting a job abroad after graduating from an Indian B-School will be tough.

I stay in Mumbai and it is in the top 15 colleges of India . but the problem is its fees is 18 lacks and it gives a packages of 12 to 14 lacks so roughly it will take 1 and a half years to repay the loan.

      Hi Aniket,
      Congrats on getting admitted into NMIMS. The growth in MBA salaries is usually towards the later part of your career as you move in to more senior positions. That said, please do not look at an MBA only in terms of short-term financial ROI. Look at it as a long-term investment in yourself. If you work hard during and post your MBA, then your education, brand and network will definitely help you throughout your career and make the MBA well worth it for you.

      MBA in the USA is more valuable as it is considered the best B-School education in the world. In India, the IT, Finance and Marketing sectors will fetch you more salaries. However, you will get a good salary in any field if you are really good at what you do. After just 2 years of experience abroad you will get probably 20% more salary than your peers here. Obviously it depends a lot from the school you do your MBA from. If you are a Harvard pass-out, then you can easily get 20+ lacs per annum. If you do it from an average college, then you can 8-12 lacs per year.

      Hi Ankit – With 700+ score and a pre-MBA international sales experience you have a pretty good shot at getting admits from US B-Schools. If you want to stay abroad, then focus on the GMAT more and don’t give CAT since studying for CAT is also a full time effort.

    Hi, I am a BE graduate in Computer Engg but now i wish to change my field and enter media industry. My options are doing an MBA in media and entertainment from whistling woods international in mumbai or MBA – Marketing from US. My parents prefer sending me to US for a better degree value. But i can work maximum of 1 year after which i am required to come back to india. will my mba from US be valued here in India and if i chose to do it from mumbai, my doors to general MBA valuing firms outside media are closed?

    Reply
    1. admin Post author

      Hi Archie,
      Whether you do your MBA from US or India, the college you do it from matters a lot – for a multitude of reasons like the quality of education, power of your professional network and your brand value. If you do an MBA from the US from the top 50 B-schools, then it will be certainly be valued in India. However, 1 year of working abroad will not be enough for you to pay back your educational loan. If finance is not an issue, then you will not have a problem getting a job in India after a US MBA.
      Regarding your second question, I have not heard of the aforementioned institution so I will not comment on whether industries outside of media will recognize it or not. However, once you have a few years of solid experience in the media industry, you certainly will have options for lateral movement into the marketing departments of a lot of firms.
      Hope this helps. All the best!

          Working while doing your MBA is not a good idea. The MBA courses are very extensive and you will not be able to take in the full value of your education if you work part time. Most countries have stringent laws about allowing students to work on a student visa and this is different for for different countries, so do your research before applying.

      Sachin,
      Whether the decision to do an MBA is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ depends on what goals you have in your career – e.g. if you want to become a world renowned software architect, then obviously your decision is wrong. I would recommend that you go through this article on what are the reasons people do an MBA to see which applies to you. You should also go through the wrong reasons to do an MBA to ensure that you are not making a decision not aligned with your career goals.

      Regarding placements, your IT experience will NOT count much (or at all) if you are switching tracks to finance.

      Yes, in the USA, it is tougher for Indian students to get a job after an MBA degree. This is because, unlike shortage of technical talent, there isn’t a huge supply shortage of MBA grads in USA. That said, if you are good, the probability of you getting a job post graduation is reasonably decent. Not many MBA grads come back to India due to their not getting a job in the USA.

      It all depends on where you want to work and live in the longer term.

If you want to live in India, then definitely go for the IIMs as they will get you the same mileage in terms of pedigree and education at half or one-third the cost.

      Hi Arjun,
      2 years experience is ideal if you want to get into a full time 2 year course in a premier management institute from India. How much you learn depends on two things – your own motivation to learn and the quality of the MBA course and faculty. Given that you are at an early stage of your career, I would recommend that you try to hone your profile to get into one of the premier colleges, either in India or abroad as that will provide you with way more value in terms of both learning and money.

    Dear admin,

    I have been going through your responses to the questions and they are highly informative. Thank you for this. I would like to tell you that I graduated with an engineering degree in computer science and eventually joined the IT sector where I have been working for 3.5 years. Though I secured a 690 in GMAT in 2014, I only applied to two top colleges and didn’t get through. In 2015 I gave the CAT to improve my chances and secured 92.12. I want to start my own organization and what I value is having diverse experiences with my life, a diverse peer group and a chance to make a difference. I love to write and travel. Today I have admits from Arizona State and Purdue university for their MBA programs. In India I have been accepted at IMT G full time, IRMA and IMI. I have never thought of settling in the USA, though I would love to experience places there. IRMA calls out to me for its extensive internships and the idea of being able to nurture rural India. With the kind of salaries I might get from IRMA, will I be able to travel the world? Looking forward to your reply. Thank u sir! Please advise me on a rational course of action.

      Congrats on getting admits from all the above colleges – specially Krannert (Purdue). I am not sure what your question is. If you love to write and travel, then what has an MBA got to do with it? Clarifying your goals will help you reach your decision yourself.
      * If you want diverse experiences and a diverse peer group, then opt for the US schools. Indian B-Schools are full of engineers.
      * If money or quick ROI is not a huge factor, then go for the US schools.
      * If you want to business in India for the longer term, then opt for the Indian schools
      * If you want better salaries in India, then take a drop this year and try for the IIMs next year. 92.12 is not very far from 99.
      * If you want to travel the world, then you have 3 options:
      1. Don’t do an MBA just for traveling. As an IT engineer, your chances of traveling the world are the highest. Look for them.
      2. Get into the top 10 schools in India and ensure you enrol for the student exchange program and spend a semester in Europe
      3. Choose a US B-School
      Hope this helps. All the best!

    In the event of global economic crisis, It is advisable to pursue management study in India than abroad. We have many world class universities and colleges offering MBA course and are making future leaders. Instead of spending half of the earning in your child’s MBA in abroad, experts advice of taking a good opportunity back here in India where there are assurance of getting a good job. Jain University in Bangalore offers MBA course in single specialisation and also for working professionals giving in-depth knowledge of management studies. The college offers unique course structure that keeps it at par with other renowned institutions.

    Hi I have completed my MBA from Mumbai University and wanted to go abroad and settle over there, but i am confused a bit about getting job over there. I am planning to do my 2nd MBA from USA, is there any problem of doing my 2nd MBA from USA because i guess doing my MBA from there will help me get over there and i can settle over there. I have a 1 year exp in the field of Finance and will do my MBA in finance itself over there.

      Hi Arpita,
      With the way your current profile is, it is very very tough. However, if you work hard to changing your profile such that MBA admission counsellors at Stanford think that you will add value to their school, then yes. Doing that is tough, but certainly not impossible.

    Hi Admin. I am planning to do MBA from abroad and settle there only. Which country is better – UK or Australia?

      Between the two AND given that you want to settle there, the answer is Australia. UK has stopped giving direct work permits to graduating international students.

    Hello ,

    I have working exp of 4 years with 8 lakh package. If I will do MBA in top-ranked US colleges, will it return the value with a good amount of hike in US organisation? How can the financial conditions be helped for pursuing MBA?

      US MBA colleges are the best in the world. Yes, you will get positive ROI if you graduate from ‘top-ranked’ USA colleges. Financial options for US MBA students are limited when compared to the engineering degrees.

      I can’t give you an exact figure in terms of your post-MBA salary. However, I can tell you this – if you have completed an MBA from a decent college in the US or UK and have worked there for a couple of years, when you get back in India, your salary will be 1.5 to 2 times that of a regular employee with the same credentials and abilities.

    I want to work in Australia after MBA, but the MBA in Australia would cost a lot. Will it be beneficial if I do MBA in India and then goto Australia?

    Will you consider IIMs which started 5-6 years back also in the list of IIMs you mentioned? Or in simple words, if I get selected new IIMs, should i join them or join 30-35 worldwide ranked business school (according to ft rankings) ?

    Hello sir
    I have completed my BTECH Degree in ECE this year. I am planning to do MBA in USA. Do the universities there require work experience as a compulsory factor? Or are there any universities to do MBA without any work experience? Are there any top B-Schools in New York? Many people tell that MBA in UK is worth. Is doing MBA in US worth it? Please reply.

    Which One is better – Executive MBA at Michigan State University Eli Broad College of Business or Executive MBA at Indian Institute of Management?
    FYI: I am an IT professional with 10+ Y exp, age 36Y, currently at USA, but have plan to go back to India and settle there. I am in US for last 6 years and will stay another 3-4 years max…
    Cost wise IIM PGPx is not that cheaper…(22L+1year salary) taking it to 40-45L and MSU Broad is of $72K(45-47L INR). One is MBA degree another is PDBM(minor point though). Can you give me also a rank wise perspective? Also is 40+ Years of age disadvantageous for getting into IIM PGPX(for example)?
    What should I consider to make it a fair comparison which is most logical(worth investing) and unbiased?
    Thanks in advance!

    What if I give the entrance exams for MBA in India and if it doesn’t work out, then go to Australia in June to study further. Will it be considered as a drop year and will it affect my resume?

    Hello Sir,
    I am currently pursuing B Tech in CSE from Jaypee University, in future I am planning to do MS from University of florida, then I want to work as a software engineer for 4-5 years ,then pursue executive MBA from US itself.
    Is it an appropriate and feasible plan?
    What are the possible pros and cons?

      Feasible, yes. Appropriate – tough to comment with the information provided. You haven’t explained what your goal is. Why do you want to do an Exec MBA after doing studying engineering for 6 years and working for another 4-5?
