An overview

The first business school in the world was founded in Paris in 1819 – ESCP Europe, some years after such universities appeared in the USA, Canada, South Africa and Asia. Nowadays, there are several forms of business schools, in most cases b-schools are faculties, colleges or departments in a university. However the number of institutions teaching only business is increasing.

Business Schools are higher education institutions where one can study Business Administration, Management, MBA and EMBA. Core courses in every graduate or postgraduate program are: accounting, administration, strategy, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, human resource management, information systems, logistics, marketing, organizational psychology, etc.

To study MBA or EMBA or Managerial masters in the States you will have to prepare for a tuition fees between $50 000 and $150 000.

Admission in a business school

To be admitted, you will have to prepare for an exam, an interview and to fill several forms with information about yourself. GMAT, GRE, TOEFL, IELTS and iBT are the exams one must take in order to apply for the great part of business schools around the world. After the exams, you will be required to fill different forms of documents (depending on the institution) with information about yourself and to write an essay and/or motivation letter. The last step is the personal interview, where a representative from the department, where you apply will also ask you about your past studies, experience and motivation for the future.
