These two dominating countries have a lot in common

Brazil and Russia are roughly comparable in regards to population 140+ million vs 195+ million
Both economies are dependent on export of natural resources.
Politically Brazil has become more representative democratically where as Russia has been compared to being more authoritarian.
Russia is on the rise post Cold War there’s a new generation of young Russians taking the global economy by force. However, the same can be said about the Brazilians.

As a result, business schools such as the Academy of National Economy under the Government of Russia, the Graduate School of Management at St Petersburg State University, Moscow International Higher Business School, and Moscow University Touro are seldom recognized outside of Russia for their MBA programs.

The most significant motivation above the global average for Russia is in the pursuit of new skills. Brazilian applicants have a strong interest in taking up leadership/management positions post-MBA, similar to Indian applicants, scoring 12% above the global average. This is in line with their low interest in starting up their own businesses.

From the chart above, India and Russia follow the global average across most of the categories listed. The greatest divergence from both the group and global average is by China and South Africa as depicted by the lines. They both have the same interest in learning new skills but the similarity ends there. The highest divergence in interests in is the importance of boosting their salaries. Chinese applicants have an above average motivation this area, while South African applicants are more focused on starting their own business. Both countries are also at polar ends in their motivation towards career change. Chinese applicants are also strongly geared towards building a professional network at 9% above the global average.

As the chart reveals, although all the countries within the group are classified as emerging economies, the potential applicants have varied reasons for enrolling on the MBA course. It would be interesting to see whether their motivations change in the next few years in light of Brazil’s, China’s and Russia’s growth forecasts recent downgrade.
