KULIAH DI UNIVERSITAS AMERIKA


Sounds great, right? Tapi, mengapa Amerika? Opini pribadi saya, universitas terbaik ada di Amerika, tetapi universitas terjelek juga ada di Amerika. Oke, kalau memang Anda diterima di Harvard, Yale, Stanford, The Ivy League, it’s just fine. Tapi kalau pun tidak, Amerika mungkin bukan jalan terbaik.

Eropa, atau Skandinavia, mungkin bisa menjadi alternatif yang baik. Inggris boleh juga, tapi biasanya terbentur pada masalah biaya. Tapi satu yang pasti, di Eropa, universitas-universitas di sana secara rata-rata bagus dan mempunyai standar yang lebih merata daripada Amerika. Sebut saja Erasmus, Leiden (Belanda), atau juga Jerman yang cukup murah (sekitar ¢500 untuk German language dan ¢1000-1500 untuk yang English language). Pokoknya, jangan kuatir bakal dapet universitas sampah di Eropa. Kalo mau alternatif yang agak murahan secara umum, Australia juga lumayan; Melbourne University, Australian National University, Murdoch, Bond University, dan seterusnya.

Kembali ke Amerika, mungkin tetap banyak yang ngotot untuk bisa kuliah di sana. American dreams? Mungkin. Yang jelas, business school sangat mengutamakan GMAT terutama untuk college urutan atas, walaupun GMAT bukan satu-satunya unsur penilaian. Setahu saya, average requirement GMAT untuk universitas di Amerika adalah 630-720 (upper), 570-630 (middle), dan 500-570 (lower). Just remember, GMAT is not the only factor for you to get into the MBA program .

Sekolah-sekolah di Amerika, dibagi menjadi berberapa tier; tier pertama itu adalah sekolah-sekolah paling top di bidang tersebut. Untuk sekolah business misalnya Harvard Business School, Stanford Business, Stern NYU, Yale Business School, Kellog NWU, Wharton School of Finance, dan masih banyak lagi.

Sementara second tier adalah sekolah yang kualitasnya dibawah sekolah first tier. Biasanya, perbedaan antara 1st dan 2nd cukup banyak. Jebolan first tier biasanya selepas lulus langsung direkrut, nilai student surveynya tinggi, kualitas pengajarnya professional, administrasi sekolah tinggi, research project yang luas, dan sebagainya. Contoh dari second tier Thunderbird GSIM, Wharrington, Boston College, Notre Dame, Baruch, dan sebagainya.

Lalu, gimana dengan biayanya? Untuk kampus yang masuk ranking 50 besar biayanya sekitar $7.000-$10.000/thn. Di program S1 Stanford University, tuition fee satu quarter $9.000 (ada tiga quarter dalam satu tahun). Total untuk satu tahun sekitar $44.000, termasuk dorm, makan, dan segala macamnya. Cukup worth it sih untuk universitas seperti ini.
