Getting a good job overseas requires high qualifications and a wide variety of skills and competences that must surpass what home graduates already possess. There is no doubt that the reputation and ranking of the University conferring the degree will play an important role in opening global job opportunities that may remain unavailable to others.

What makes a good business school?


The first very important attribute is the accreditation of the school. This is a certification which ensures that the school meets certain quality standards set by an independent accrediting body. In Malta we do not have such accreditation bodies, except the necessary MFHEA licensing regime. A number of licensed institutions though, provide business degrees conferred by British Universities, and students are advised to investigate what accreditations the conferring University offers. Such accreditations portray the standards that the institution is set to follow.

The Teaching Faculty

A close second in importance is the teaching faculty. A good business school needs to have a diverse, highly qualified faculty with expertise in their fields and the pedagogy of teaching. Saint Martin’s Institute is proud to have faculty members with advanced degrees, relevant business experience, and a strong record of research and publication, while very involved in their teaching vocation.

The Curriculum

The third essential element is a comprehensive and current curriculum, covering essential areas of business-like finance, marketing, operations, entrepreneurship, and strategy.

Hence following curricula that are developed through the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE) and Royal Holloway, University of London.

The intangible benefits of a business degree with the University of London

A good business school often has strong ties with the business community, providing students with networking opportunities and connections that can lead to job offers and internships. The institute prides itself in its organisation of an annual careers event to allow interested students to meet prospective employers from relevant industries. This results in internships and job opportunities for students during their summer break and after finishing their studies. Some students even venture overseas, through the Erasmus+ traineeship programme, where students receive financial support and attain work experience with an EU based firm.

Hands-on Learning Experiences

Business schools that provide hands-on learning experiences such as internships, co-op programs, case competitions, consulting projects, and study/work abroad opportunities often offer better preparation for the real business world through experiential learning. In today’s interconnected world, it is important for business schools to have a global focus with partnerships with international institutions, study abroad programs, and a curriculum that covers global business issues. Without any doubt, Saint Martin’s Institute is a leader in this aspect, supporting and mentoring student teams in participating … ?

Bridging Life at School with your Career

A good higher education institution knows that its role in society is to bridge school life to a career, and thus having a strong career services department that helps students find internships and job placements during their study period and after graduation is a big asset. High job placement rates and salaries upon graduation are positive indicators of the quality of the institution. Our successful alumni also indicate the quality of education and opportunities provided by Saint Martin’s Institute.
