There is no such MBA. Universities don't grant MBA in information systems, or MBA in finance, or MBA in marketing. MBA means Master in Business Administration. The MBA is a general degree preparing students for management positions in any level of a business, up to CEO. MBA students study accounting, finance, marketing, management, statistics, economics, strategy, policy, and other courses. Many MBA programs offer concentrations in these and many other fields, but that amounts to only 2-3 courses in your chosen field in the second year of study. Many students avoid a concentration and take a variety of elective subjects to gain a broader background. By the time you finish the first year you'll be able to decide which concentration interests you. You don't become a specialist in a field with 2-3 courses. It generally takes a year of concentrated study.
The MBA is not like an MS degree that concentrates study in a single field and prepares students for high level staff or research positions. The MS typically requires an undergraduate education in the field in which you want the MS, or a closely related field. A finance major does not get an MS in chemistry, and a biology major does not get an MS in accounting. If you want to specialize in a particular field other than business administration, such as finance, marketing, operations management, human resource management, or a non-business field such as public health, or public administration, you should get an MS degree in that specialization.
MBA programs accept students in any undergraduate field. They prefer students who do not have a business background because they give you the business training but they cannot provide the broad background that managers should have. I have taught MBA students with degrees in Music, Medicine, Dentistry, Law, Psychology, Political Science, Chemistry, Biology, Engineering, and many other fields. Most MBA programs prefer students with 2-3 years work experience after the first degree, but many accept students right out of college if they have good grades and a high GMAT score. Some MBA programs are designed specifically for new college graduates without work experience.
No one should consider an MBA program without consulting the Official MBA Guide. It's a comprehensive free public service with more than 2,000 MBA programs listed worldwide. It allows you to search for programs by location (US, Europe, Far East, etc.), by concentration (finance, marketing, aviation management, health management, accounting, etc.), by type of program (full-time, distance learning, part-time, executive, and accelerated), and by listing your own criteria and preferences to get a list of universities that satisfy your needs. Schools report their accreditation status, tuition cost, number of students, class sizes, program length, and a lot of other data. Schools provide data on entrance requirements, program costs, program characteristics, joint degrees, and much more. You can use the Guide to contact schools of your choice, examine their data, visit their web site, and send them pre applications. You can see lists of top 40 schools ranked by starting salaries of graduates, GMAT scores, and other criteria. It's the best service available at http://officialmbaguide.org.
Originally Answered: Is Akita International University a good university?
AIU is not a bad university, but it is also still relatively new so there are some bugs they are still working out on the system. Currently AIU's graduate's job-finding success rate is between 98-100% and they have received much attention within Japan for that, but you have to see it from a more realistic perspective. People only started to graduate from AIU in 2008 (because it only started in 2004), so that is only two years' worth of graduates. Also, AIU is a very small school so you only have a small number of students (between 100 and 200) graduating a year. The majority of graduates are also native Japanese-born, not foreign-born, who are entering primarily the business sector with a native fluency of Japanese and a high proficiency level of English.
Within Japan AIU has a generally good reputation because it is hard to compare it with more traditional schools. AIU is very small and almost 1/4th of the student population every year is temporary foreign exchange students. Classes aside from language courses are instructed in English, textbooks are written in English, and all students--both Japanese and foreign--must have a certain English proficiency before being accepted. Japanese is not required at all.
However, most signs in AIU and definitely all the ones around Akita are in Japanese only. The students speak in Japanese to one another, which can cause a separation between foreign and native students. Important announcements are given in both Japanese and English, but foreign students occasionally can feel like they are "missing out."
To obnoxious people no one cares about like Debito AIU is "bad" and so he has "blacklisted" them. But you should ignore everything Debito rants about because he just tries to find the small bad things in everything and kick up a tantrum over them. Fighting about "unequal" status and treatment of foreigners in Japan is like crying about the "unequal" status and treatment of short people in the US. Sure, some things suck. But you just get over it, you don't start a campaign about it.
I would not recommend AIU for receiving a degree. I would not recommend any Japanese university for receiving a degree. A degree from an American university will be much more valuable to you than any of the universities that target foreigners. You will find these courses too easy, your Japanese probably won't become as good as you want because you'll stay in an English bubble, and without Japanese fluency you won't be working in Japan and you'll have to return home for a job, and these schools are far from well-known in the US. Instead I think study abroad is better.
I like AIU but it is not for everyone.
I entered AIU with already a high proficiency in Japanese, so this allowed me to make friends with the Japanese students, as well as get around town and communicate a lot more easily. The majority of foreign students only speak English or do not have a high level of Japanese and so for the most part they all stick together and know very few Japanese, resulting in the Japanese students clumping together as well. Even though all students are expected to know [some level of] English, you won't get far in becoming friends with the Japanese students if you're not very outgoing.
Also, it is very rural. AIU is a very beautiful campus, but if you prefer shopping or playing video games or partying AIU is not a good fit. If you enjoy exploring, there is literally a forest right behind the campus. You have to take a 15-minute bus ride to get to the shops or train station. It only costs a few dollars, but it can add up if you do it often. So both foreign and native students sometimes find it very "boring." I believe all the other colleges you mentioned are in big cities (Tokyo and somewhere else, I believe?). Akita is a very poor prefecture in Japan (near the bottom of the list) so it is not a place stores flock to.
Because entering Japanese students have very low English fluency, the low-level classes for them are very easy and therefore boring to foreigners. If you enter to graduate from AIU you will be stuck taking these unchallenging courses, and so you will have a lot of free time to complain about being bored.
here is a list with schools that offer MBAs in Germany. U have to go through them and find out about tuition costs. However not all of them are entirely in english and not all of them are state funded.
Especially MBA programs often dont have the same tuiton as other degrees. But go through it and I'm shure u'll find something intresting.
UPES dehradun offers MBA In Intl. Business,Delhi university also offers this programm(Refer DSE-DU), IIFT-Delhi also offers this.all these are having excellent placement records and are top most in india.
