Rahul Lamba, Product Manager, Cognitus Consulting, International MBA Florida International University, EEUU
The search began early last year sending out applications to various B-schools. Eventually, it narrowed down to two, out of which FIU was best placed for pursuing a business course. I always had the thirst to kickstart my own business and I realized I needed to pursue an MBA degree. Having read about different types of MBAs, I felt the one with the international element will be the most useful for my future aspirations, so I decided to pursue the International MBA from FIU. The range of the course modules and the structure intrigued me the most as it focuses on group assignments and projects. The way each class was scheduled with mini class assignments enabled me to work with people from different backgrounds. I loved to collaborate with students from all over the world. I chose FIU because Miami is home to one of the most dynamic global business communities. This would entail multiple employment opportunities along with the business environment all around! Organizations you would have never thought of even visiting, are just around the corner. Above all this, I love the weather and the cool breeze in Miami. The weather never ceases to impress me every time I step out of the house.
