As a HULT Alumni, I have to tell you that I had a great experience at HULT.
I felt the need to write this review as I noticed that a minority of students/alumni have been sharing a total different experience from the one I had and from the one the majority of the alumni I know had.
For the ones that are in the process of choosing a school to study (MBA/MIB/MIF/MIM) you may want to talk with alumni that have a constructive feedback.
I understand that internet is fast and easy but you are not choosing a Restaurant you are choosing a school. HULT was the perfect fit for what I wanted in my life and in my career, with the resources I had. Moreover It seems that unsuccessful people have more time to write (bad) comments than successful ones!
Yes, I was among the top students. Yes, before the MBA started I knew what I wanted to improve during the program and I was focused on that. Yes I didn’t wait for Career Services to get me a job and I only used Career Services to do my Resume and to heavily train for interviews. Yes, I agree that a minority of students was not prepare or didn’t care. Yes, I was not focused on those ones.
I got my offer 3 months before Graduation in a top consulting Company in the USA. Yes, I am not American and I had to go through all the Visa process. I got my first interview through an Alumni after being rejected several times by other alumni or non-alumni that didn’t have the time to talk with me or didn’t think that I was the right fit for their Companies. Yes I was rejected several times. That’s life.
In my network of HULT alumni I have contacts in the most prestigious Companies. Off the top of my head, Mckinsey, BCG, E&Y, KPMG, Deloitte, PWC, Goldman Sachs, Infosys, Google, Amazon, Nike, among others. If all the students get jobs in these Companies? No. But it is possible and it is real.
It is not my role here to hard sell HULT or comment the comments. More important than that is to tell those ones that are looking for Education/Business Schools to pursue their career dreams that (1) an MBA don’t make you smarter, (2) Career Services is not there to get the job of your dreams. They are there to help you working on that; (3) High Expectations are your responsibility. Manage your expectations when you come to USA. This is the most competitive place on earth. If you cannot deal with competition/frustrations/expectations while you are doing your MBA here, in USA, you may want to consider if this is the right market for you.
Moreover, I still keep connected with several alumni, some professors and people from the staff and I am totally available to participate in events promoted by the school. It was a great experience for me and I want to give back.
Hope you find my opinion helpful to the forum.
Best of luck with your MBA search.
