One of the most life-changing decisions of your life: choose wisely

How do we convince prospective students that ours is the perfect business school for them? Choosing a school is, after all, the most important step in establishing an international career. Job specific specialisations, and industry-oriented, practical exposure based learning programs have become popular in the new competitive landscape.

"Being taught by someone who has accomplished it before is one of the most effective methods to learn"

But seeing the same information on institution websites and other platforms might be daunting at times. Thus, students should focus on the most crucial variables while selecting a Business school.

Each school has its own eccentricity and perks. Although it may be tempting to focus just on the institution’s reputation, there are numerous additional things why try to make our students consider to guarantee them they are receiving an education that is tailored to their long-term goals and career objectives.

1. Location

We say students should strike a balance between exploring a new city and everything it has to offer while their studying, but they should also consider being close to the industries/sectors they want to work in once they finish.

C3S Business School provides tremendous networking opportunities and facilitates field trips and company visits in varied industries. We tell students wanting to work in the start-up tech sector, Barcelona is the place for them!

2. Immersive and Experiential learning

The absence of soft and practical skills students learn while at school is the most common industry complaint regarding business schools.

Therefore, choosing a business school that will provide more than a typical theoretically-oriented curriculum will help graduates be competitive and career-ready.

“Paid internship projects with companies also foster real-world experience”

Programs offered at C3S incorporate purely assignment-based learning and evaluation alongside practical elements such as genuine business case-study challenges, simulations, interaction with CXOs of leading global organisations and workshops & seminars. Paid internship projects with companies also foster real-world experience.

3. Professors with a real-world business exposure

Being taught by someone who has accomplished it before is one of the most effective methods to learn. We tell students that their prospective professors will be able to demonstrate what they’re teaching and provide more than just academic knowledge.

Aida Mehrad, for example, is one of C3S Business School’s many internationally-sourced industry veterans. The professors at a school can also offer a sense of the community and network students will be joining.

4. Multi-faceted and multi-cultural growth

We also encourage our students to seek programs that allow them to travel on account of pathway opportunities. This will not only enhance their experience, but it will also add to their profiles’ ‘wow-factor’. Employers are always curious about co-curricular activities and instances of how prospective employees have moved outside of their comfort zone.

For instance, C3S Business School has more than 50+ pathway opportunities for studying the final year/semester in top-reputed UK universities.

5. Student assistance

To determine the level of support students can expect, we urged them pay attention to the number of students per lecture and the overall size of the student body. Will they always need to make an appointment to see a member of staff? Is there somebody who can assist if something goes wrong?

We are proud that C3S provides 24*7 student support – end-to-end assistance for form filling, document verification, accommodation, visa renewal, medical card, social security number, paid internships, and more. Our smaller classroom approach allows for a personalized experience.

We want to ensure our students’ stays are a lot less stressful and much more pleasurable.

6. Accreditations & Partnerships

While rankings aren’t everything, we do place emphasis on how bachelor’s or master’s degree is accredited (e.g. othm, UCAM University, NCC Education, ACBSP, ECBC) — this is very crucial to assure educational quality and rigour. Furthermore, researching the appropriate accreditation ensures that degree is globally recognised.
