Once you take the decision to go in for an MBA comes the question. Where will you do it? Each country offers its own set of opportunities that could take your career and life goals to greater heights. TopMBA.com, in its MBA Applicant and Aspirations Report 2018 has listed the top 10 highly coveted destinations for business education aspirants.

In the first place is the United States. Ever since the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration established the world’s first MBA program in 1908, the US has been a favourite destination. In the business school rankings too, the US continues to maintain its supremacy.

While the 1-year full-time MBA programs and several online versions have been making headway, the 2-year program continues its dominance. The advantages cited are that a longer period helps students acquire a more in-depth knowledge, develop networking with peers and the alumni and also gain valuable work experience from the summer internship.

A sizable presence of international students brings the much-needed diversity in the cohorts. Some of the programs also include stays abroad.
