Studying abroad

Can you tell me about the best PR institutes?

I want to make a career in Public Relations. Is there any MBA course abroad that specialises in Public Relations? Can you tell me about some of the best institutes for an MBA in Public Relations abroad?

Firstly, you may not get a complete MBA specialisation in Public Relations. Instead, you could opt for an MBA in Marketing & Public Relations, or Advertising & Public Relations. Alternatively, you could opt for a Masters in Public Relations (MA) course. Apart from good academics and a strong statement of purpose and resume, some other country specific requirements are essential.

There are some very good universities in the US and UK which offer MA in PR. In the UK, some good universities for this would include Leeds Metropolitan University & London College of communications. For this, one major entry requirement your academic scores preferred first class and IELTS/TOEFL score.

In the US, Michigan State University & Boston University are some good universities for this course. However, to do a master’s course in the US, you need to have at least 16 years of education, a GRE score and a TOEFL/IELTS score.

For an MBA in the above mentioned courses, you could look at universities like Greenwich School of Management in the UK, and Suffolk University in the US. For this, a TOEFL/IELTS score would be a necessity, while GMAT would be preferable in the UK, but mandatory in the US. Most of the universities prefer two to three years of work experience after the completion of your under graduation for an MBA program.   

In Australia, Queensland University of Technology provides masters in Business with emphasis in public relations. Here again the requirement would be a good IELTS score besides good academics.

I am a Commerce graduate and would like to pursue a course that would help me in taking care of my family business. I preferably would like to study in the US.

The best course for you considering your background is the ‘Family Managed Business’ program. This program will equip you with the skills to lead your family business successfully. The program will help you in meeting the unique managerial challenges associated with operating and sustaining a successful family business/firm. You can either pursue a two year masters program in ‘Family Managed Business’ or alternatively you could also pursue a certificate course which is of duration between 4-6 months.

In the USA Babson College, Kellogg and Rutgers offer interesting courses in family business management.

I am currently pursuing my FYJC Arts and would like to study Actuarial Science in a US university. What does this course entail and which are the best universities?

Actuaries evaluate, manage and advise on financial risks. They apply their knowledge of Business and Economics, together with their understanding of
probability theory, statistics and investment theory, to provide strategic, commercial and financial advice. It is essential to have a strong mathematical background. Your curriculum should include math courses, such as calculus, probability, statistics, and any courses your school offers in actuarial science. However students may be exempted from math requirements by passing a placement examination or doing a foundation program there. So it is best to check with each individual university to see what their requirements are. Have a look at the bachelors program offered at Ohio University in the USA and Florida State University to see if it suits your requirements.
